About Us

I am a licensed clinical psychologist in California.  I have worked in the mental health field for over 20 years, first as a therapist and now as a psychologist.  In addition to my training as a clinical psychologist I have specialized training in dialectical behavioral therapy (5-day jump start Core Clinical Skills, Shari Manning, PhD and Annie McCall, MA; Online Skills Training, Marsha Linehan, PhD) and Neurolinguistic Programming.  I am a certified Ecotherapist and am completing training in Nutritional Psychology.

Since 2013 I have worked in California’s State Hospital system providing individual and group therapy to individuals with serious mental illness.  I started my private practice on the side in 2017.  During my time working with serious mental illness and patients in the community I have come to realize that traditional therapy only scratches the surface in terms of improving mental well-being.  Achieving optimal mental health and well-being requires so much more than spending an hour a week with a therapist in an office.  It requires thinking outside of the box. In my therapeutic practice I draw upon my training in cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and positive psychology to help you achieve the behavioral changes necessary to live a life that you can get excited about.  I also incorporate aspects of nutritional coaching, nature therapy, mindfulness, and movement into my treatment protocol to provide you with the skills that you need to thrive in your daily life.  To bring you the best services possible and make sure I am addressing all of your needs I also work with a team of consulting alternative therapy healers who can provide complimentary services as needed.
