I am a licensed clinical psychologist working exclusively with women. It is my mission to assist you in taking action toward a life filled with greater passion, purpose, and balance.

My doctoral study took place at Northwestern University followed by two postdoctoral fellowships at Stanford University specializing in women's health and wellness.

I offer individual counseling in Palo Alto - as well as groups, workshops, and retreats throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.

Thank you for visiting my site.

Warmest wishes,

My Approach

My therapeutic orientation is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) -- a mindfulness-based approach that teaches you to transcend obstacles and begin living life to the fullest.

My specialty training includes two years of full-time postdoctoral residency wholly focused upon using ACT with women for the treatment of depression, anxiety, and other health issues.

ACT provides the foundation for all of my work - including weekly groups, daylong workshops, and weekend retreats.

Female therapists are welcome to participate in these events as a way to experience ACT firsthand. Continuing education units are available.
