I am a licensed psychologist (PSY28354) in private practice, with offices in Healdsburg and Santa Rosa. I work with individual adults, couples, teens, and groups.
I received my Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology in Los Angeles, CA and my Doctorate Degree in Clinical Psychology from Ryokan College in Venice, CA. In 2014, I earned the Certificate in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy from the Los Angeles Institute and Society for Psychoanalytic Studies (LAISPS).
From 2011-2013, I received training at The Maple Counseling Center in Beverly Hills, CA where I worked psychodynamically with individual adults and co-facilitated a bereavement group. I also received training at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, CA (2013-2014) as a supervisor for Teen Line, a program that provides crisis intervention and prevention, peer counseling, and referrals specifically for children and adolescents ages 12 to 19.
Formerly, I spent many years working in the television industry. From this I gained a sensitivity and deep understanding of the experiences and challenges that professionals struggling to form, excel, and maintain their careers in an often complex and high stress environment. I also provide psychological consultation to entertainment organizations, including The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.
