I’m a psychologist (California license PSY 16104) with over 20 years’ clinical experience conducting individual psychotherapy with adults, teens, and children. I graduated from Yale University and earned a Ph.D. in psychology at the University of California, Los Angeles. My predoctoral clinical training was at the UCLA Psychology Clinic and the Fernald School, and I completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the Central Contra Costa County Child, Adolescent, and Family Mental Health Service in Concord, California. I’m Professor Emeritus at the University of California, San Francisco and have published over 100 articles in scientific and professional journals on topics such as trauma, depression, psychiatric epidemiology, and cultural issues in mental health. I supervise students at the Wright Institute in Berkeley and offer consultation to other mental health professionals. I’ve served on the boards of the Alameda County Psychological Association and the California Association for Play Therapy, and the Viewpoint (newsletter) Committee of The Psychotherapy Institute.
