I am a board-certified neuropsychologist specializing in comprehensive evaluations of both children and adults. I completed my undergraduate studies in psychology at UC Berkeley, then earned my PhD in Clinical and Health Psychology at University of Florida. I specialized in neuropsychology in graduate school and also did a neuropsychology internship. While away in Florida I missed the Bay Area, and moved back to California to do a 2-year postdoctoral residency in Neuropsychology at VA Northern California Health Care System.
Currently, I am on the Clinical Faculty at UC Davis Medical School Department of Neurology and serve as Consulting Neuropsychologist at Shriners Hospitals for Children, Northern California. I previously taught at UC Berkeley, Department of Clinical Science. I love teaching young minds and watching people learn and grow! I am past Behavioral Medicine/Neuropsychology Co-Chair for Sacramento Valley Psychological Association.
In developing assessments for both kids and adults, I take a person-centered approach. This means that the goal of the assessment is to help you or your child grow and learn, not reduce abilities to a bunch of numbers. I take pride in explaining all results carefully in an easy-to-understand way. You will leave the assessment clear about what is going on and what steps you need to take next! My therapy philosophy is twofold. First, as the patient, you are in the driver’s seat creating change in your life. I am like the coach on the sidelines guiding you and cheering you on, but you need to be willing to do the work. Second, the same cookie-cutter therapy is not going to work for everyone. I take time to get to know you, your personality style, and customize what we work on together to fit for you.
I’m a native of the Santa Cruz, CA area and love doing anything outdoors, from rock climbing to hiking to skiing. I became a psychologist because I enjoy being with people, learning from them, and doing work that makes a difference.
She/ Her/ Hers
I am a mom to four and a native to Sacramento. I enjoy helping people and find it rewarding to be the first point of contact for our patients. I studied Sociology at University of California, Davis, where I discovered a passion for working with children. I spent ten years working in both school and in-home settings with children on the autism spectrum before transitioning into an administrative role. In my free time, I enjoy baking and trips to the beach with my family.
