I’m a Licensed Clinical Psychologist (PSY25475) who works with individuals and couples at my conveniently located office in downtown Berkeley. I have extensive training in a variety of approaches, including psychoanalysis, trauma-informed and mindfulness-based models of treatment, and family systems theories.
While I work with a wide range of issues, I also have a special expertise in the treatment of eating disorders and body image concerns. I am one of the few Certified Eating Disorders Specialists (CEDS) in the East Bay. In addition to my clinical practice, I am actively involved in research. Most recently, I published the book Understanding Anorexia Nervosa in Males: An Integrative Approach and am editing the forthcoming Psychoanalytic Treatment of Eating Disorders: When Words Fail and Bodies Speak. I have also authored a wide range of articles, about which you can find more here.Read More
