I am a licensed clinical psychologist and I work in my own private practice, in the Sacramento area, as a psychotherapist and clinical supervisor. I love working with adolescents as well as younger and older adults, individuals and couples.
I am fundamentally a depth therapist, yet able to adapt and effectively respond to the diverse demands of contemporary psychological treatment’s needs; hence I am able to offer different types and courses of therapy, including focused, shorter-term treatments, such as stress reduction and meditation (also offered in group format), behavioral health coaching, and a variety of other behavioral programs targeted to meet your specific needs and desires.
In addition, I am one of the few psychologists in the area offering psychotherapy-based, integrative and holistic treatment for psychotic and bipolar disorders, as well as for other persistent, hard to treat, psycho-emotional disturbances, including severe depression and anxiety. Generally, I do not support biopsychiatry and the ongoing prescription of psychoactive medications. However, I do offer supportive psychotherapy for patients who do take psychiatric medications for the long-term, as well as for those who are interested in working toward decreasing their dosage and/or withdraw from them (please note: to withdraw form psychiatric medication is a very serious matter, and a process needing ongoing, careful and attentive medical monitoring and support).
