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.
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. All services
