I am glad you found my web site! I am a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in the treatment of OCD, anxiety, and stress. I work with adults (age 18 and older) who live in California.

I am passionate about helping clients understand and ultimately rise above that unwanted presence that has likely been a steady companion for some time — anxiety. This anxious part of the brain can have quite a loud voice, producing uncomfortable sensations in the body that lead us to avoid what we fear. We can then become stuck in a smaller, less vibrant life, one where we are no longer pursuing what matters most.

Anxiety can show up in a number of ways, whether in the form of...

  • worry that is difficult to control
  • public speaking or performance anxiety
  • anxiety in social situations, such as a fear of being judged or negatively evaluated
  • panic attacks, which constitute a rush of very physical anxiety symptoms in the body
  • phobias, such as fear of driving
  • health anxiety
  • obsessive compulsive disorder
  • burnout and work stress
  • insomnia, or difficulty falling and/or staying asleep

The good news is that over the past several decades, psychologists have developed a deep understanding of these issues, including how they first begin, what maintains them, and how to interrupt and ultimately become liberated from the anxiety cycle. We have a number of evidence-based treatments that truly do work. I help clients rise above anxiety to build a meaningful, values-driven life.
