I am a licensed clinical psychologist, consultant, researcher, and educator in Pasadena, CA. I maintain a small practice and specialize in psychotherapy with children, adolescents, and their families who are struggling with issues of anxiety, trauma, depression, grief and loss, and relationship problems. I also provide learning disabilities testing and assessments for immigration-related proceedings.
