I am a clinical psychologist based in Los Angeles, CA. I became a licensed psychologist in 2011. My work involves providing psychotherapy for women with a wide range of emotional problems.

I received my Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the University of Kansas in 2009. At KU, I was trained in the latest research-supported therapies for a wide range of psychiatric disorders. My dissertation focused on a new clinical approach to depression from an evolutionary perspective. For more information, please see this Ted Talk by my dissertation advisor, Dr. Steve Ilardi.

Also in graduate school, I elected to complete two years as a therapist for a formal dialectical-behavioral therapy (DBT) program, based on the work of Dr. Marsha Linehan.

Following graduate school, I completed an internship and a postdoctoral fellowship at Kaiser Permanente and was then hired on as a staff psychologist, where I remained until 2014. At Kaiser, I became the head of the adult anxiety program. I created and implemented group therapy programs for social anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. I was also fortunate to serve as a clinical supervisor for predoctoral interns as they learned how to provide competent psychotherapy to patients.

In addition to private practice, I am the Director of Medical Student Wellness at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California. More information can be found here.
