I’m a licensed clinical psychologist (PSY29469) with extensive experience working with adult and young adult clients in hospitals and university counseling centers. Most recently I worked in the student counseling center at San Francisco State University where I provided individual and group therapy to students and faculty. I received my doctorate in clinical psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology in San Francisco.

Specialty & Clinical Interest

Young Adults

I specialize in working with young adult issues, identity development, life transition, and first-generation college students. Separating from your family, navigating new relationships, and discovering your path and interests are some of the unique challenges in this period of life. I have over five years of experience working in university counseling centers providing individual and group therapy to students, staff, and faculty. 


Graduate Students, Staff & Faculty

Having been a graduate student myself and spending years working at several universities have made me very familiar with the challenges of working in the unique and stressful world of academia.


Relationship Issues

I believe that a lot of psychological suffering and distress can be addressed in the context of working through relationship difficulty. I have found that symptoms related to anxiety and depression can be addressed when feelings, needs, wishes, and wants in important relationships are explored. You will likely find that your communication improves when you are more aware of your feelings.


Social Anxiety

I work with clients who identify as shy, sensitive, introverted, or having low-self-esteem. These are not pathological or clinical terms, in fact, some of them are unique strengths. You may identify as having some of these traits and not others. Regardless, people who identify as having these traits have unique challenges in the world and often feel anxious and misunderstood in social situations.
