I received my bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of California Berkeley, a master’s degree in counseling from the University of Southern California and a doctorate in Marriage and Family Therapy from Ryokan College. I am certified in Somatic Experiencing and practice EMDR, both naturalistic approaches to resolving anxiety, stress and trauma. I specialize in anxiety and stress related issues including depression, postpartum depression and developmental and family issues including attachment and trauma of various kinds.
