For nearly two decades I have dedicated myself to working with both teens and adults in various capacities, including roles as a wilderness therapy guide, wilderness leadership instructor, outdoor program director, and international educator. My academic journey led me to complete my doctoral training at the Wright Institute in Berkeley, California—a program spanning six years. Throughout this period, I gained clinical experience in diverse settings, such as community mental health centers, elementary schools, college counseling, and private practice.
In my therapeutic practice, I am trained as a generalist and adopt an integrative approach. The primary therapeutic modalities I employ include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) with a focus on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Relational Psychodynamic Therapy, and Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), along with Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and other somatic-based interventions.
As a generalist, I have experience in addressing a diverse range of mental health presentations and challenges but I specialize in working with trauma, anxiety, and ADHD. I also offer ADHD assessments for adults age 18+. My office is in Mill Valley and I see patients over telehealth and in person.
