Specializations

As a licensed child and adolescent psychologist, I am trained in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of mental disorders of childhood and adolescence.  This can include addressing difficulties in school, social, and family functioning that arise during difficult adjustments such as school changes, bullying, and divorce.

I also specialize in treatments for child and adolescent anxiety, specifically treatments for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Panic Disorder, Phobias, as well as both childhood and adolescent Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).  I have specialized training in treatments for childhood and adolescent depression and Bipolar Disorder presentations, as well as suicide and self-injury.  Lastly, I currently direct a specialized clinic for disruptive behavior disorders, including Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), and Conduct Disorder (CD).

Current Services

Currently, I am not providing psychotherapy in private practice.  I am currently directing an agency serving the mental health needs of children, adolescents, and families in San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles, and Orange counties, at STAR of CA.  I remain available for psychological assessment services. For more information, feel free to contact me directly.
