I am a psychologist who is licensed to practice in the state of California. I help people coping with psychological issues such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse, bipolar disorder, GLBTQ concerns, and trauma. In addition to my private practice, I currently work at two local psychiatric hospitals treating patients and training doctoral students who provide treatment in these areas.

I also specialize in a few areas. The first area is helping people gain insight and live better, fuller lives. In some cases, patients want to change certain troublesome life patterns. In other cases, people seek to focus on areas such as self-esteem, relationships, stress, grief, or concerns related to aging or sexuality. Left untreated, these issues may permeate or "take over" other areas of our lives and further reduce our ability to truly enjoy life.

Secondly, I help patients coping with health issues. For example, I currently work with patients from the Multiple Sclerosis Society. I help people who are adjusting to a recently diagnosed illness, living with an existing illness or coping with chronic pain.

Lastly, I also help people faced with career stress and concerns. I became a psychologist after a successful career in business and technology. I pursued a more satisfying life and help others do so.

I am a compassionate therapist who is dedicated to helping my clients achieve their goals. Many people entering therapy are anxious, so I seek to create a warm, relaxed and collaborative environment for our work together. Together, we will better understand the challenges you face and identify and build on your strengths to help you feel better and achieve your goals. Contact me for a free initial consultation.
