I received my Bachelors degree in Psychology from the University of Michigan - School of LSA Honors , my masters and doctorate degrees in clinical psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies , and completed formal training at the Saturday Center for Psychotherapy .
It is my personal belief that there is always more to learn and ways to expand one's skills as a psychotherapist. So, while I was licensed by the state of California in 2010 (PSY23832), my education continues. Most notably, I am a recent graduate of the psychoanalytic psychotherapy program at the Los Angeles Institute and Society for Psychoanalytic Studies (LAISPS), a stepping stone to my ultimate goal of becoming a psychoanalyst. Additionally, I frequently present my research on stigma with sexual minorities to various psychological associations in the state of California. Finally, I attend classes and conferences on the topics of couples therapy, working with sexual minorities, and integrating the latest findings in neuropsychology to integrate mindfulness into psychodynamic work.
