A licensed Clinical Psychologists specializing in Women’s Anger Issues and also provide Individual, couples and family therapy. I maintain a private practice in San Francisco.

As a narratively informed, culturally sensitive, psychologist, I work collaboratively with clients to find solutions to the problems that are negatively impacting their lives and relationships.  My approach to therapy is interactive and solution-focused.

I primarily work with women, individuals, couples and families dealing with a wide range of problems including anger issues, family conflict, parenting, couple relationship issues, anxiety, trauma, addictions, and child/adolescent behavioral problems.

In addition to my clinical expertise, I have presented at national conferences and to general audiences speaking on the topics of domestic violence, women’s anger issues, Domestic Violence in the community, women’s substance abuse and alcoholism, and psychotherapy with youth and their families.
