Thanks for taking a look at my practice.  I am a licensed clinical psychologist and work with adults, children, teens, couples, and families in my office in Oakland, California.  I graduated with a doctorate in clinical psychology from the Wright Institute in Berkeley, CA.  In addition to my private practice, I am a staff clinician and supervisor at RAMS Inc., a community mental health clinic in San Francisco. I have taught at various programs in the Bay Area, and am a former board member of the Northern California Society for Psychoanalytic Psychology.  I write on a variety of subjects related to the field of psychology, including very infrequently on the intersection of psychoanalysis and professional basketball.
