Evidence-Based Treatment for Adolescents & Adults.

Hello, and welcome to my website! I am a licensed clinical psychologist in private practice specializing in the most empirically supported mindfulness-based treatments for adolescents and adults. We all have those moments in life where we can not seem to get ahold of our emotions, relationships, and/or responsibilities. At the same time, I truly believe that we are always doing the best we can. Sometimes we simply lack the skills needed to cope more effectively. That’s where I come in! My approach is compassionate, client centered, and evidence-based. I draw on your innate strengths, while integrating skills so you can navigate life’s challenges with more ease. I have extensive experience treating a variety of problems, such as anxiety, depression, anger, OCD, and trauma. Please scroll down or click the link below to learn more about the work I do. I look forward to the possibility of working together!

Individual Therapy

I am certified in CBT and received intensive training in a number of evidence based protocols. I am passionate about delivering treatment that is flexible and tailored to your unique needs while remaining tethered to the research base. My sessions are experiential and aimed at helping you cope with difficult life experiences and strong emotions. My ultimate goal is to help you overcome barriers to living a rich and meaningful life.


Group therapy

I provide Dialectical Behavior Skills Training and Mindful-Self Compassion groups. I believe it is so important that we learn the “life skills” that promote stress resilience in a supportive environment. I also provide weekly groups to local treatment centers on CBT, ACT, mindfulness, relapse prevention, and stress management. Please inquire further about group availability.


Professional trainings

I proudly offer training workshops to mental health professionals on a range of topics related to CBT and other empirically-supported treatments. I also provide training on the common elements of the most empirically supported mindfulness-based treatments (DBT, ACT, MBSR, MBCT, MBRP, MB-EAT) and how to flexibly integrate these treatments in practice.


Teaching / Supervision

I have years of experience providing supervision in adherent CBT and “third wave” mindfulness and acceptance based approaches. Additionally, I have taught at various academic and training institutions, such as Harbor-UCLA, Loma Linda University School of Medicine, and Azusa Pacific University. Please reach out if you are interested in learning more about my supervision and teaching opportunities.
