I am a licensed psychologist in private practice in San Francisco, California with over 20 years of clinical experience. I am also on the staff of the California Pacific Medical Center, where I provides clinical supervision to psychology interns and psychiatry residents. I provide consultation to the courts and other psychotherapists in the San Francisco Bay Area on alcoholism, other addictions, and divorce recovery.
In addition to my work in performing child custody evaluations for local courts, I specialize in the assessment and treatment of alcohol/drug addiction and abuse, sex addiction, and other compulsive disorders. My other specialties include grief recovery, response to trauma, depression, expatriate adjustment, divorce recovery and the management of stress and anxiety. I am proficient in American Sign Language and Spanish.
I am a member of the American, California and San Francisco Psychological Associations, and a past Chair of the Ethics Committee of the San Francisco Psychological Association.
