About Me

I have been a sought-after specialist in the San Francisco Bay area in the field of evaluating infants’ and toddlers’ development and diagnosis of autism spectrum disorders.

After receiving my Ph.D. from the California School of Professional Psychology in San Francisco, I completed a postdoctoral psychology fellowship at the Children’s Hospital and Research Center Behavioral Pediatrics Department in Oakland, Calif., while simultaneously attending two years of specialized training in infant-parent mental health through the Harris Early Childhood Mental Health Training Program.

Before opening my private practice in 2012, I worked for more than eight years at the Regional Center of the East Bay in Oakland as a high-risk infant specialist and, most recently, as the Autism Spectrum Disorder Clinical Specialist.

I have completed advanced training in the use of Applied Behavioral Analysis, and have extensive experience in the use of a variety of gold-standard assessment measures. My approach to evaluation includes thoughtful counseling of parents regarding their child’s diagnosis and treatment recommendations.

I am in network with Premera, Regence and Kaiser, and credentialing with United, Aetna and 1st Choice is in process. I also accept private-pay clients.
