As a therapist, I care deeply about helping my clients get "unstuck" from anxious thoughts and behaviors, in order to reconnect with the things that really matter to them. My clients often describe me as warm, compassionate, and occasionally funny. I practice two therapies that have very strong evidence behind them: cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), which help people overcome their fears and live richer, more engaged lives. I also use professional-grade virtual reality (VR) technology, which helps my clients practice new coping skills and master their fears in immersive environments that look and feel like real-life!
I completed both my predoctoral and postdoctoral training in pediatric psychology at Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC), where I worked with children, teens, and young adults with acute or chronic health conditions, and have advanced training in treatment of anxiety disorders.
