Education, Training & Background

westwood village


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.

California License:  PSY8761
