Compassionate Care

I’m a licensed clinical psychologist with over 10 years of experience providing consultation, therapy and assessment services. My practice focuses on supporting individuals to improve their mental health and well-being. My areas of practice include anxiety, depression, stress and life transitions. I help people with adjustment to life changes, such as parenting, retirement, divorce or coping with a new medical condition or disability. I also provide supportive counseling for pregnancy and neonatal loss and coping with infertility treatments. I specialize in third party psychological consultation, assessments, counseling and evaluations for intended parents, gestational surrogates, adoptive parents, donors and donor recipients. I work with several Bay Area fertility centers and agencies throughout the state and provide required personality testing as needed, such as the PAI or MMPI. My treatment approach is warm, caring, and non-judgmental. I use evidence-based practices and interventions tailored for your individual needs. I highlight your strengths and encourage insight into your problem areas. We will collaboratively develop flexible goals toward lasting change, so you get the most out of your therapy experience. My prior experience includes 10 years of service at Kaiser Permanente Department of Mental Health & Wellness, where I served as both the consortium director and training director for the APA Accredited Postdoctoral Residency, as well as, the founding director for the Internship Program in the Greater Alameda service area at Kaiser Permanente.
