About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in California. I earned my B.A. from UC San Diego and my Masters and Ph.D. from Pacific Graduate School of Psychology in Palo Alto (now Palo Alto University). I have worked with children and families since 1996 at many child and family clinics around the Bay Area and in Portland, Oregon.

Prior to starting my private practice, I worked with emotionally and behaviorally disturbed children and adolescents in schools, prisons, and their own homes. I also worked extensively with children in the foster care system.
