Clinical Psychologist
I have primarily worked with teenagers since 1995. While in graduate school I worked at two Bay Area psychiatric hospitals for adolescents. After St. Mary’s and Alta Bates Hospitals, I worked in outpatient clinic settings. At present, I work for a Kaiser Medical Center in the Department of Child Psychiatry, and enjoy my own private practice three days/week in Alameda, CA. I have led my Kaiser’s weekly Teen Depression Group since 2002, and served as the Chairperson for Best Practices for Treating Adolescent Depression for 6 years.

I strive to make therapy simple and straightforward. In our work together, I will draw upon my education and training, however my goal is to meet you at the intersection of our life experiences. I present my authentic self, which is essential to my work, especially when working with Teens.
In terms of my real life experience, I was adopted twice as a child and therefore can speak from experience about attachment and abandonment issues. I also lived through several medical traumas as a child and tween, and can relate to health and medical issues you (or a loved one) may be facing. Lastly, I have been in recovery from alcohol/drug abuse for many years, so can legitimately empathize with addictive behaviors in your life, and how addiction affects family and friends.
