I am a licensed clinical psychologist with a private practice in San Francisco as well as via Skype and Telehealth internet services. I work with individuals, couples, and families. I see adults that are dealing with developmental milestone transitions, grief and loss of loved ones, and women’s issues- specifically infertility, depression, stress of life, and anxiety.
I work in neuropsychology and health psychology with privileges at two hospitals in the Los Angeles Area: Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center- Torrance and San Pedro. I specialize in neurocognitive assessments for neurocogntive disorders: stroke, traumatic brain injury, parkinson’s, dementia, and many other medical diagnoses. This type of work provides comprehensive understanding of our patient’s cognitive level of functioning and gives us an idea on how to work with our patients. I also provide symptom management, family and patient support through physical rehabilitation and role change, and work on a multi-disciplinary treatment team. The acute rehabilitation program at San Pedro was named in the top 1% of over 800 hospitals around the US recently, and I am very proud to be a clinician here.
I went to the Illinois School of Professional Psychology in Chicago to receive my masters and doctoral degrees in Clinical Psychology. I then moved to Florida for a one year residency with a variety of inpatient and outpatient experiences. My fellowship was done in Los Angeles in the rehabilitation/neuropsychology specialty.
