Education, Training & Background
I received my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from UCLA. While there, I completed an internship at the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Institute, specializing in Medical Psychology and trained in Hypnosis. In 1998, I received a Psy.D. from the Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis. I am currently a Training and Supervising Analyst at ICP, as well as past President of the ICP Board of Directors. My focus is contemporary relational psychoanalytic approaches, object-relations, trauma focused psychotherapy, the relationship between the mind and the brain, and mindfulness approaches.
In addition to working psychotherapeutically with patients, I teach and conduct individual and group clinical consultation.
