I am a licensed clinical psychologist (PSY25161) in private practice – located in Downtown Los Angeles – where I specialize in eating disorders and weight issues. I also work at the University of California – Los Angeles (UCLA). I am the Clinical Psychology Director of the UCLA Fit for Healthy Weight Clinic where I provide brief psychological interventions and psychiatric referrals to pediatric patients struggling with obesity and I serve as a clinical supervisor to interns. I am also a consultant in the UCLA Eating Disorders and Body Dysmorphic Disorder Research Program where I contribute to research pertaining to the biological underpinnings of body dysmorphic disorder and anorexia nervosa. I have over a decade of experience working with eating and weight disorders and have been trained by some of the leading experts in the field. My training began as an undergraduate at Laureate Psychiatric Hospital while attending the University of Oklahoma. I then attended the University of Kansas for graduate school, specializing in behavioral medicine, eating disorders, and obesity management, receiving my PhD in 2010. I then completed a predoctoral internship at the UCLA Semel Institute for Neuroscience. From 2010-2012, I completed a combined research and clinical postdoctoral fellowship at the University of California – San Diego (UCSD) Eating Disorders Program. Following my fellowship, I was an attending psychologist in the UCLA Eating Disorders Program at the Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital from 2012-2015. I aim to integrate modern empirically supported treatment modalities with attachment theory in my treatment practices, while examining eating pathology and its neurobiological correlates in research.
