A little bit about me...

AC_Edit.JPP-1.jpg

I have worked in the fields of education and mental health for over 10 years, and draw from my diverse experience as a therapist, teacher and writer. I hold a Masters in Social Welfare from UCLA, a Masters in Fine Arts from CalArts, and a Bachelors in Comparative Literature from Brown University. I came to psychotherapy by way of teaching creative writing to students and community members. I value curiosity and the importance of healing, seeking and learning.  I am committed to understanding my clients in the context of their lives and cultures.

I have trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and the Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM), as well as in Mindfulness, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) including Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). I have substantial experience providing therapy to adults, adolescents, couples and families in hospital and residential care for eating disorders, as well as in outpatient and community mental health settings.

I love what I do and I'm happy to answer any questions you may have.
