Welcome to my private practice of assessment, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, brief analysis, & consultation. I am a licensed clinical psychologist in practice with infants, children, adults, couples & families. I acknowledge that suffering experienced in relation to anxiety, depression, relationship issues, developmental difficulties, marital distress, parenting, trauma, illness, medical conditions, physical pain experienced in relation to physical injuries, illness & other experiences can result in debilitating distress.
In my practice I cognize that choosing a psychologist & treatment modality can be difficult and confusing. I am here to attempt answering questions you may have about the process of therapy, analysis, or brief analysis.
My Areas of expertise: assessment; treatment planning; treatment of ages 0-5; psychotherapy for children, adults, couples & families; trauma & compassion fatigue; brief psychoanalysis; divorce & forensic; consultation to clinicians, teachers, executives & institutions.
I have authored manuscripts in the areas of child psychoanalysis, psychosomatic conditions, trauma & secondary stress; as well as co-authored & implemented a Brief Lacanian Analysis Treatment Model.
I have completed a postdoc fellowship @ Stanford Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS); conducted extensive research @ PTSD Research Program, SFVA/UCSF; was a consultant to the Brief Lacanian Analysis Project @ Mission Mental Health; served as Adjunct Clinical Faculty @ California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) & as Faculty & VP @ Lacanian School of Psychoanalysis (LSP).
I have acquired my analytic training through the years in various settings within and outside of LSP, working with Dr. Martine Aniel, PhD, Dr. Philippe Gendrault, Ph.D., Dr. Raul Moncayo, PhD, and Dr. Angela Sowa, Psy.D.
