Education

I earned my Psy.D. and M.A. in Clinical Psychology from  California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University with an emphasis on family, child, and couples therapy. I completed my B.A. in Psychology at UC Berkeley.

Clinical Experience

I completed my pre-doctoral and post-doctoral training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy at the  Wright Institute Los Angeles where I provided long-term insight-oriented psychotherapy. In the past, I have worked extensively with children and caregivers conducting individual, group, and family psychotherapy in a private practice setting. I also have experience working with adults with severe mental illness in an in-patient nursing facility. Currently, I provide individual, couples, and group psychotherapy services as a psychological assistant (PSB94023545) under the supervision of Timothy K. Wong, Ph.D. and my areas of interest include: relationship issues, depression, anxiety, trauma work, and career stress. 

Research

My doctoral dissertation consisted of a comprehensive literature review of mindfulness interventions for stress reduction in youth with sleep disorders. In 2016, I co-presented at the American Psychological Association Convention on the use of art therapy and creating masks as a way to develop empathy in couples therapy. I previously worked as a research assistant in a sleep and mood research lab at UC Berkeley.
