Training & Work
I have a doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology and am licensed to practice in California. In addition to private practice, I have worked as a psychologist at Stanford University - Vaden Health Center where I provided individual counseling and crisis services to Stanford undergraduate and graduate students. I also offered weekly clinical supervision to pre-doctoral trainees and psychiatry residents. Prior to my position at Stanford University, I worked as a psychologist at University of California, San Francisco- Student Health and Counseling Services and as a behavioral mental health consultant for Managed Healthcare Unlimited, Inc.
Having trained in many types of mental health settings, including children's hospitals, acute residential settings, and university counseling centers, I have helped people from diverse cultural backgrounds with a wide array of mental health difficulties. These training sites include:
Sonoma State University- Counseling and Psychological Services
California State University, San Marcos- Student Health and Counseling Services
University of San Diego- Counseling Center
Community Research Foundation- Halcyon Crisis Center
Rady Children’s Hospital- Chadwick Center
While I am trained as a generalist and work with many different mental health issues, I specialize in working with adults ages 18-35 and those who are experiencing anxiety, depression, and/or relationship problems. I have a particular interest in treating young professionals, highly motivated individuals in demanding work environments, and the university student population. I am well-versed in fast paced working and academic environments and the personalities it attracts. In addition to providing therapy and crisis management services to university students, I have experience running women's support groups, providing supervision to therapists' in training, and facilitating outreach presentations. Outreach presentations have focused on topics related to mindfulness, building and maintaining healthy relationships, and stress/anxiety management. I also received focused training and supervision in applied sports and performance psychology, and have worked with collegiate athletes and their teams, students with academic and career related anxiety, and other performance based concerns.
