In addition to my private practice, I provide services to Santa Clara County Juvenile Probation and the Santa Clara County Department of Children and Family Services, administering psychological assessments and making recommendations for youth in the court system. I also provide private psychological evaluations for a variety of purposes including mental health diagnosis, school recommendations and treatment recommendations.

Previously I worked at Kaiser Santa Clara in the Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Department with children experiencing a variety of symptoms and concerns including depression, family conflicts and attention deficit disorders. Before working at Kaiser, I worked with EMQ Children and Family Services for several years in various roles, specifically as Clinical Program Manager in both the Uplift Wraparound Program and the EMQ/Giarretto Child Sexual Abuse Treatment Program where I developed a specialty for working with adolescents with sexual behavior problems.

Earlier at EMQ, I worked as a clinician within the Child and Adolescent Crisis Team and Outpatient programs.

I’m an active member of several organizations including the CPA (California Psychological Association) and CCOSO (California Coalition on Sexual Offending), and am dually licensed in California as both a psychologist and as a Marriage & Family Therapist.  I certified as an EMDR Practitioner by EMDRIA (EMDR International Association).

On a personal note, I enjoy many activities and hobbies including SCUBA diving, yoga, mountain biking, messing with the computer, “amateur” home repair, camping, genealogy and music of all kinds, especially metal and rock.
