My Approach to Helping

I currently practice psychology in a number of arenas. I have a private practice where I see individuals for psychotherapy, groups, and psychological assessment. I recently worked on a grant at UCSB Alcohol and Drug services providing clinical services to students. I have also been a reality show psychologist for casting and on-set location support. I use my clinical and life experiences, and my educational background to tailor every experience to meet each individual style of learning and needs. I have a keen eye for assessing situations, and a deep respect for meeting individuals where they are and helping them to move to creating positive and healthy choices in their lives and relationships. I have an MA and Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and an MA in Education. Since becoming licensed as a Clinical Psychologist in 1995, I have worked as a clinician and clinical supervisor in community-based and county settings, as well as private practice. I have a broad and deep range of experiences, including extensive work with mentally ill and dually diagnosed individuals, psychological evaluation and assessment, crisis intervention, supervision of interns, individual, group and milieu therapies. Most recently, I have a private practice in the Goleta area of Santa Barbara. I have been a consultant and location psychologist on reality television shows, such as Top Chef, Survivor, 13, Rock Star, Pirates, Jingles, and Big Brother.
