I received my doctorate from UCLA, and have been a clinical psychologist for 30 years. At UCLA I worked in Pediatric Neurology with attention deficit hyperactive disorder and learning problems. In private practice I treat depression, anxiety, stress, marital problems, family interaction problems, and life passage challenges. My approach is generally focused on problem solving, using behavioral and cognitive strategies. I also have training in dream work, hypnosis, meditation, and pain management. I helped organize the Breast Health Center at Naval Medical Center, working for three years with breast cancer patients and their families.
I have promoted the profession of psychology through local, state and federal advocacy. I was named a Fellow of the San Diego Psychological Association and am a recipient of the Silver Psi Award from the California Psychological Association. I was APA Federal Advocacy Coordinator for California.
I currently practice part time in Solana Beach and do home visits in the Del Mar to Encinitas areas.
