My interest is in helping individuals dealing with anxiety, depression, grief/loss, trauma, relationship difficulties, cultural conflict, identity formation, and stress management. I work from an integrative and collaborative approach with the aim of creating a nonjudgmental and safe environment for each client. I believe this space is the foundation for the development of a strong therapeutic relationship, from which desired change can begin to take place.
I earned a Doctorate of Psychology (Psy.D.) in Clinical Psychology, with an emphasis in Forensic Psychology from an APA-accredited graduate program at the American School of Professional Psychology in Orange County. I also received a Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology, with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from the American School of Professional Psychology in San Diego, and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Occidental College in Los Angeles. I am currently a clinical psychology postdoctoral fellow supervised by Dr. Shereen Mohsen.
I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults in a variety of settings, including counseling clinics in which I provided short and long-term psychotherapy; a crisis center providing brief, individual and group psychotherapy and diagnostic assessments; Harbor UCLA Medical center where I received training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT); an educational center where I conducted psychoeducational and psychological assessments, and Napa State Hospital, where I conducted individual and group psychotherapy, competency evaluations, and risk and psychodiagnostic assessments.
