About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist (PSY 29817) in private practice. I work with adults and children and specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for the treatment of depression, anxiety, and relationship problems.​

I graduated from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology, Palo-Alto, CA, with a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology. I have a Master's degree in Psychology, and a Bachelor's degree in Buddhist Psychology (the implementation of Buddhist principles in the practice of psychology), from Naropa University, Boulder, CO. Although I do not practice Buddhism, the Buddhist principles of mindfulness, Love & kindness (empathy), and the need to remove/reduce one's sufferings coincide with my values as a psychologist. I employ a cognitive-behavioral approach to treatment and use powerful interventions to enhance our progress.
