About Me

DSC_0041 - Version 2I am a licensed psychoanalytic psychotherapist with over 20 years of experience. My career has always consisted of both psychotherapy and teaching/training. I currently have psychotherapy offices in both San Francisco and Oakland and I also am the Director of Training at Access Institute for Psychological Services. I am passionate about making psychotherapy accessible to those who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford it and I am proud to be a mentor and model to a younger generation of clinicians.

I received my B.S. from Yale College and my Ph.D. from The Wright Institute.  My pre-doctoral internship was at California Pacific Medical Center’s outpatient clinic.  I have a private practice in which I see individual adults, adolescents and couples and have extensive experience supervising non-licensed clinicians and consulting with other professionals.  Before becoming the Director of Training at Access Institute, I was on the training staff at both The Wright Institute Clinic and The Mills College Counseling Center.

I have presented several papers at national conferences on the topics of training and supervision, and I have taught on these topics at local psychoanalytic organizations.  Most recently, I presented a paper on the early psychological life of twins at a conference in NYC.  I continue to write on this topic and plan to publish this work.

In addition to my psychotherapy practice, I offer parenting consultations to parents of twins and other multiples. With the personal experience of raising twins combined with my professional and theoretical knowledge, I am uniquely situated to help parents manage the complexities of raising more than one child of the same age and I am committed to helping them be the best parents they can be.
