I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, trained at Northwestern University at the undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate levels, securing a strong academic as well as experiential foundation in psychotherapy.  I am licensed in both California and Illinois.

After academia, I remained at Northwestern University’s Family Institute as a Staff Psychotherapist for two years. My training underscored the philosophy of seeing the system as a whole instead of as separate entities. Whether I am working with a client individually or with a couple, I always have the larger context of what motivates and shapes each person. Systemic therapy is devoid of blame – rather, I am trained to track and identify complex interpersonal and inner-personal dynamics and subsequently serve interventions to create real change. In addition to being a psychotherapist, I am a yoga teacher trained in the Baptiste Vinyasa style and bring that sense of mindfulness and vitality to my practice as well.
