About Me

I have worked for Kaiser Permanente for over 30 years, and after all that time, I still value the mission of affordable, quality health care delivery. I learn every day from my clients as they reveal their resiliency to whatever adversity they have encountered.

About my practice

Populations: Adult, Family, Group, Seniors. Specialties: ADD/ ADHD, Anxiety, Bipolar, Depression, Insomnia, Grief and Loss, Mood Disorders, OCD, Schizophrenia, other chronic conditions. Interventions: CBT and ERP. I enjoy working with a wide variety of clients and concerns/conditions. I take a present day focus more than a historical approach to problems and symptoms.  My goal is to provide the most appropriate care for my patients, so they aren't spending extra time or money to get the care they deserve. I really like to incorporate humor into my work with clients, but not at anyone's expense.

How I thrive

I am a big Game of Thrones fan, and currently I am reading the Gabriel Allon book series. We have a 3-year-old labradoodle named Van and so far, we have proudly refused any attempts to train him.
