Are your relationships negatively impacting you instead of fulfilling you? Does it make you feel sad or worried? Are you motivated to change? As a licensed psychologist, I offer a fresh perspective to better understand yourself and your relationships to make change possible. Your well-being is my number one priority. I am here to guide you through life’s challenges with the attention and care you deserve and need.

I received my Psy.D. and M.A. from Alliant International University- Los Angeles and my B.A. from UC Berkeley. I completed my post-doctoral fellowship and my pre-doctoral internship at the Wright Institute Los Angeles, where I received extensive training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy (you can see more about my training and education history by visiting my LinkedIn below).
Though clinical experience is important, research consistently shows that the most important factor in psychotherapy success is determined by the therapeutic alliance between the therapist and patient. When asked how therapy works and how I can help, I believe this factor is where change can truly happen. As we work together, the therapeutic relationship soon helps to guide you through life's most trying times. By understanding the relationship we have with ourselves and with others, we can start to cultivate more power over our minds and our reactions. In turn, you will see symptoms and pain reduced and an increased ability to cope with your feelings and uncontrollable circumstances.
Patients have described me as having a calm and non-judgmental demeanor and providing them with insights about themselves that they weren't able to see on their own.
