education and experience
I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist in Davis, California (PSY 21603). Currently, I am a Senior Psychologist at California State Prison, Solano, where I've worked since 2009, and have a part-time practice where I provide individual psychotherapy for adults.
I earned my doctorate in clinical psychology at the California School of Professional Psychology, Alliant International University (San Diego), one of the first free-standing schools of professional psychology in the nation. I completed a two-year postdoc in the Co-occurring Disorders Program at the Gifford Clinic, an outpatient mental health service administered by the UC San Diego Department of Psychiatry. Soon after, I was lecturer at Alliant International University where I taught classes in introductory clinical psychology, attachment, ethics, and chemical dependency. In 2009, I co-edited the book Attachment Theory and Research in Clinical Work with Adults with Ety Berant and have written other clinical articles.
More recently, my focus has been on suicide and suicide risk assessment. I have given presentations designed for mental health professionals, delivered customized trainings for mental health agencies, and written about topics related to suicide.
I am member of the Sacramento Valley Psychological Association.
