I am a licensed psychologist in private practice in the East Bay (Alameda, CA). I provide evidence-based Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help adult and senior clients overcome depression, anger, trauma & abuse, grief & loss, failure, relationship problems and life crises.
I have great interest in and experience with software development and the use of internet technologies for health promotion, teaching/training, research and educational purposes. Previously I worked at the VA's National Center for PTSD with the mobile apps team developing smartphone and web applications relating to psychotherapy and psychological self-help. I directed Mental Help Net (mentalhelp.net), an online mental health and wellness website between 1999 and 2011.
