I provide therapy to children, teens, adults, families, and couples. I also provide diagnostic and personality assessment services.
Clinical Psychologist in Oakland, CA
I provide psychological testing and evaluation for all people ages 5 and up. I have expertise in personality assessment for those wanting to learn more about their identity and how to articulate their strengths.
I take a holistic and individualized approach to treating trauma because trauma is different for every person. I have particular experience supporting clients to process childhood trauma.
I was trained in psychodynamic therapy, a type of talk therapy. This method places importance on early experiences which continue to impact us into adulthood, as well as emphasizes attending to the unconscious mind that motivates us to make the decisions we make in daily life.
I provide therapy to families in a variety of configurations who want to improve relationships between family members, understand and shape their family dynamics, and manage parent/child misunderstandings and conflicts.
I provide couples therapy to all types of couples, with particular emphasis in supporting couples where the individuals have a history of childhood trauma impacting their present relationship.
I provide individual therapy to teens age 13-18, with a specialization in working teen girls struggling with depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem. With teens I use a combination of therapeutic modalities, including expressive art therapy and talk therapy, tailored to the individual’s needs. I also provide personality and projective assessment for teens.
