How I Can Help
I am a licensed clinical psychologist (#PSY27791) providing individual psychotherapy to adults. I am based in Oakland, CA and offer online therapy throughout the state of California.
I believe that the connection between therapist and client is the most powerful tool for change and healing. Through the therapeutic relationship, I strive to provide a safe, compassionate, and accepting space where you can openly express yourself, process your thoughts and emotions, and explore the underlying issues that may be causing and maintaining your current struggles. As your therapist, I will help you identify realistic goals, encourage introspection, emphasize and build upon your strengths, increase your self-awareness, promote self-compassion, teach practical skills, provide honest yet gentle feedback, and help you achieve personal growth. My style is warm, empathetic, authentic, interactive, collaborative, action-oriented, and sometimes humorous.
In addition to therapy, I have been a featured contributor in HuffPost and Forbes. I'm also a co-author of the book "Positive Psychology in Practice: Simple Tools to Pursue Happiness and Live Authentically."
I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from DePaul University in Chicago and my Master of Arts and Doctor of Psychology degrees in Clinical Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. I have been licensed in the state of California since 2015. I have worked in a variety of settings, including community counseling centers, public and private medical centers, inpatient psychiatry, eating disorder treatment programs, and group practice.
If you're interested in scheduling a free consultation with me, please submit an online appointment request or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or (510) 431-8297.
In compliance with California law, a Good Faith Estimate (GFE) of the predicted total cost of psychotherapy will be available for uninsured/self-pay clients after making an appointment.
