CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY:   I received my doctorate degrees in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University and completed the American Psychological Association (APA) accredited internship at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center concentrating in Neuropsychology and Health Psychology. During my  postdoctoral fellowship at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, I specialized in Cognitive Behavioral Treatments for depression and anxiety.​ I'm currently licensed in California and New York.

I have worked extensively with those within the entertainment, legal, health care, social services and education fields who have faced a wide range of concerns including life transitions, loss, stress, burnout,   creative blocks, relationship issues, medical diagnoses, anxiety, depression, and trauma.  By offering a supportive and empowering environment that nurtures a compassionate self-awareness, I collaborate with you to create a personalized approach designed to build upon strengths and promote resilience.


MINDFULNESS:  I have had a personal practice for about 20 years and have been incorporating mindfulness into my work since 2007.  I offer mindfulness training in a variety of settings. I completed the yearlong UCLA Certification in Mindfulness Facilitation at the Mindful Awareness Research Center (MARC) Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior and am an Affiliate UCLA MARC MAPs instructor.   Additionally, I completed the Practicum in Mindfulness Based Stress Management at the University of Pennsylvania and Mindful Schools Educator Essentials and am a Certified Mindfulness Teacher - Professional Level (CMT-P) by the International Mindfulness Teacher's Association.


SUPERVISION AND TRAINING:   I began working with doctoral level pre-interns and psychiatry residents at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. At The HOPE Program in NYC, I created the Work Wellness curriculum, directed the Advanced Doctoral Internship Training Program and facilitated ongoing organizational mindfulness training. At NCJW/LA in Los Angeles, I collaborated with program leadership to coordinate the intern-training program,  managed the intake team, supervised interns and unlicensed clinical staff.

MINDFULNESS & WELLNESS EDUCATION AND COACHING:  I have presented classes, workshops, and seminars to students, clients, staff, management and leadership in a variety of organizational settings.  I completed a Positive Psychology and Well-Being Coaching Certification and training as a Health and Wellness Coach through the College of Executive Coaching and am a National Board Certified Health & Wellness Coach (NBC-HWC).
