I am a psychologist and psychoanalyst who specializes in working with individual adults and couples.  


I trained to be a psychoanalyst at The Psychoanalytic Institute of Northern California (PINC). Additionally, I completed a three-year training program at The Psychoanalytic Couples Psychotherapy Group in Berkeley California.


I have taught analytic couple theory and practice at California Pacific Medical Center (CPMC), the International Psychotherapy Institute (IPI), The Appalachian Psychoanalytic Society (APS), and the Psychoanalytic Couple Psychotherapy Group (PCPG). I am on the board of PCPG and serve as the organization's Director of Training.


My office is located in a quiet residential neighborhood, walking distance from Grand Avenue in Oakland.
