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.
My four-legged assistant, Riley, is a certified therapy dog, together we provide K-9 Assisted Therapy. Riley is a six-year-old Black Lab mix. He is calm, obedient, and friendly. He has a quiet manner and is very gentle with children. (If you have any concerns or allergies, please let me know in advance).
