I’m a licensed psychologist with extensive experience working with children, adolescents, and families. I received my B.A. at UCLA, M.A. at Pepperdine University and Psy.D. at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. I currently provide individual and group treatment in the outpatient adolescent eating disorder program at Kaiser Permanente, Walnut Creek and maintain a private practice in Orinda, CA. I specialize in working with adolescents and young adults with eating disorders and eating/weight related issues along with any co-morbid mood and anxiety disorders.
I use an integrative approach that draws upon evidence-based practices, primarily Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy to best address each clients needs. I provide Family Based Therapy (i.e. The Maudsley Method), the only evidence based therapy for adolescent anorexia nervosa. I enjoy working collaboratively with families and value the importance of working within a treatment team to help guide clients towards full recovery, which is absolutely possible.
