I specialize in providing psychological testing to teens and adults, and psychotherapy to adults with anxiety, depression, OCD and ADHD.

Hello! I'm a licensed psychologist in California and Maryland.
In my psychotherapeutic work, I treat adults experiencing anxiety, panic, OCD, ADHD and depression. At this time, my therapy practice in telehealth only. In therapy, I practice using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Exposure and Response Prevention, Acceptance and Commitment therapy, and an eclectic style in our sessions. I'm also trained in feedback informed treatment, and I prioritize putting the therapeutic relationship/alliance first, so that we can do meaningful work together.

With psych testing, most people seek this service to inform their treatment picture (e.g. diagnostic clarity), for deeper understanding of their personality styles and behavior patterns, or to identify specific concerns like ADHD. I can provide psych testing via remote-testing or in-person at my Sherman Oaks office. Psych testing involves a clinical interview, a review of available records, gathering collateral information, several hours of psychological testing with various instruments, and then the scoring and reporting of the results, creating a narrative report that I'll provide you at our feedback session. This is a specialty, in depth service requiring many hours of evaluation and my expertise in creating diagnostic impressions and recommendations along with the written report.

At this time, I see psychotherapy clients on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings. Psych testing is conducted on Saturday mornings. I am also the Assessment Coordinator at Kaiser Permanente Dept. of Psychiatry (LA), where I concurrently supervise predoctoral interns at an APA-accredited predoctoral internship. I also conduct psych testing for patients in our department.

At this time, I do not take insurance. Psychotherapy is $175 per 45-50 minute session. Psychodiagnostic Testing is a flat fee of $3500.
