About Me

I’m a neurodiversity- and gender- affirming licensed clinical psychologist practicing in California, with specialized training in infant/early childhood mental health and Integrative Behavioral Couple Therapy.

I am a nerd who loves digesting the latest research in neuroscience and psychology so that I can help others learn more about and understand the mind-body connection.  Have a look around my site, learn more about me and what I do, and reach out if you have any questions or if you think I can help you. 🙂

What I Offer


I provide individual, couple, or family therapy for people across the lifespan, starting from birth. Yes – even tiny babies have mental health needs! Learn more about me and my approach to therapy.

clinical consults

For other psychologists and mental health providers, I provide reflective supervision and consultation on clinical cases.


I provide training on multiple subjects, including but not limited to: the neurobiology of stress and trauma, infant/early childhood mental health, neurodiversity-affirming practices, and JEDI-related (i.e., Justice, Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion) issues.

quotes to remember

Resmaa Menakem

“As every therapist will tell you, healing involves discomfort. But so is refusing to heal. And over time, refusing to heal is always more painful.”

audre lorde

black feminist activist, poet, and writer

“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.”

fred rogers

author,, TV producer & host, and presbytarian minister

“Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that’s mentionable can be more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary.”

Alexandria ocasio-cortez

U.S. congresswoman

“I just hope that more people will ignore the fatalism of the argument that we are beyond repair. We are not beyond repair. We are never beyond repair.”
