I earned my BA and MA in Psychology from UCLA and Antioch University, respectively. I completed my clinical internship at the OCD Center of Los Angeles under the tutelage of Executive Director Tom Corboy, LMFT. Over 2.5 years under his supervision, I trained in using mindfulness-based CBT to treat individuals with OCD, Anxiety and Obsessive-Compulsive Spectrum Disorders. I am certified in Intuitive Eating, an evidence-based CBT-informed approach to treating disordered eating. I studied under the co-authors of this approach – receiving training from Evelyn Tribole, MS, RDN, CEDRD-S, and supervision from Elyse Resch, MS, RDN, CEDRD-S, FIAEDP, FADA, FAND.
