I have an extensive background in psychology due to discovering that I wanted to become a clinical psychologist at an early age. I graduated magna cum laude and earned a membership into Phi Beta Kappa from Skidmore College. I earned a Psy.D. in clinical psychology from Pepperdine University. After an enriching education from Pepperdine, working both in inpatient and outpatient settings, conducting intellectual and personality testing, working with children, adolescents, adults, families, couples, and groups, experiencing supervision and course work from a variety of theoretical orientations, I knew I wanted to become an expert in psychoanalytically informed treatments for adults and adolescents. This led to a two year post-doctoral fellowship at the Wright Institute of LA. This is where I cultivated the foundation of how I conduct psychotherapy. I have specialties in both eating disorders and addictions and work with people who have a wide variety of issues: depression, anxiety.
