I am a licensed clinical psychologist (Lic.# PSY25466) with two office locations in Southern California - Westwood and Pasadena. I have been working with individuals, couples, and families in a private practice setting for more than 10 years. I have also worked as a clinical director in a residential treatment program as well as supervised interns.
I greatly enjoy this work and am so thankful to the people whom have allowed me to be a part of their journey. It is a truly unique experience, an experience in which we are given the space to co-create.
I have seen people experience relief from symptoms of anxiety, depression, PTSD, existential crises, addictions, attachment traumas and more. It is truly humbling to watch people in their work reach new levels of personal and professional growth, enter into and maintain recovery from addictions and eating disorders, operate from a more empowered place, find profound new meanings in life, engage in more effective communication, discover personal values, needs, desires, and hopes, and experience improvement in love / familial relationships.
I specialize in working with trauma, relationship and attachment issues, grief and loss, psycho-spiritual crisis, life transitions, depression, and anxiety. I also have experience doing harm reduction, preparation, and integration work with clients using psychedelics and plant medicine therapies.
I am trained in Attachment Focused EMDR through the Parnell Institute and am currently in the process of working towards certification.
I have worked with many students in the local colleges and universities, and thoroughly enjoy helping people navigate this particular time.
