I am a Bay Area native and have also lived and worked in Boston and San Diego. I received a BA in Psychology from UC Berkeley and completed a Master's and Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology at Alliant International University. I have experience working in community mental health centers, hospital inpatient and outpatient units, and college counseling centers. As a general adult therapist, I provide various modalities to fit my client's needs, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Psychodynamic, Mindfulness, and relational-based interventions. My practice is continually striving for a trauma-informed and culturally humble approach.
I am a licensed psychologist with over a decade of experience serving adult professionals and college-age students. Prior to private practice, I honed my skills at Stanford University, where I offered individual and group psychotherapy, assessment, consultation, and crisis intervention. While I work with a broad range of concerns, I specialize in treating adults struggling with stress and anxiety. My approach is warm and collaborative but also emphasizes symptom reduction and skill building.
Modern life inundates us with stressors that contribute to high levels of anxiety and depression. I work holistically with clients to identify the causes of distress and develop successful coping mechanisms. We will focus on the brain and body connection to fully understand and integrate your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.
I understand reaching out for help can be a vulnerable experience, and I welcome the opportunity to work with you.
