About Me

It’s important for you to have information about your therapist. I am a mom of three, and live in Santa Monica, California. I have been practicing as a therapist since 2008. I love crossword puzzles, running, and true crime podcasts. I hate cooking and being late. 

I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was 9 years old, and believe strongly in practicing from a neurodiversity affirming framework. This upholds a non-pathologizing perspective on mental health and the human condition. Rather than looking at things in terms of “disorders”, I look at what circumstances might have led someone to develop certain habits or coping mechanisms, recognizing that frequently our pathologized behaviors are healthy response to an unhealthy circumstance. 

I opened my private practice in 2017, after nearly a decade of working in outpatient mental health settings. My practice is focused on anxiety disorders, women’s mental health (perinatal mental health, infertility and reproductive mental health, and postpartum mood issues)and neurodivergence (specifically ADD/ADHD and Autism).
