About Me

image32

I obtained my master's in clinical psychology from Pepperdine University and received extensive training in CBT from the Academy of Cognitive Therapy. I also completed the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program at Insight L.A. 


My initial training in therapy occurred at New Directions for Veterans, where I worked with homeless vets who struggled with addiction and mental health issues. Thereafter, I learned dialectical behavior therapy at Village Counseling and Wellness, a group therapy practice in Burbank, where I continue to conduct individual therapy and lead DBT skills-training groups for adults and teens.


Prior to beginning my career in psychology, I was raised an Air Force "brat," living in five different countries by the age of 18. I graduated from Princeton University, where I studied art history and theater. I have over 20 years' experience as an actor and have written and produced several award-winning short and feature-length films.

my practice

My Focus

I treat adults who struggle with anxiety, OCD, panic disorder, stress, and depression, as well as teens with OCD and panic disorder, and couples. I am trained in and make use of evidence-based practices, such as cognitive behavior therapy and mindfulness, but I believe the relationship between therapist and client is of utmost importance. Change cannot occur without acceptance, so I strive to create a safe, nonjudgmental environment, while gently challenging clients to build new skills. I am LGBTQ-allied.

My Treatment Philosophy

Anxiety, sadness, and stress can immobilize us. We often think if we could just change the way we feel, we would finally be able to accomplish our goals and have fulfilling relationships. But emotions don't exist in a vacuum -- they act in concert with our thoughts, behaviors, and physical state. In what ways do you disconnect from the present moment to avoid pain? What ideas about yourself, others, and the world do you tend to cling to, and how might those ideas be limiting your ability to move toward your values and goals? Therapy can help you recognize outdated scripts and self-defeating patterns to develop more effective, more joyful ways of being.

The Decision to Seek Help

Seeking treatment takes courage and acceptance. I want to honor such qualities by guiding clients (and being guided by them) to examine thought and behavior patterns that may be contributing to distress and preventing them from reaching their goals. Everything is temporary, but lasting change is possible, and therapy can help. Call or e-mail me for a free phone consultation.

Fees and Payment

My fees range from $120 to $150 for individual sessions, and $175 to $225 for couples. In some cases, I offer sliding-scale rates; fees will be discussed and agreed upon prior to our first session.


I accept payment via cash, check, Venmo, or Zelle. I am not in network with any insurance companies but can provide you with a "superbill" to seek reimbursement from your insurance provider (reimbursement rates vary).
