I am available for consultation (fee negotiable) for other mental health providers. As an Associate Professor in the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) and as a Staff Psychologist at the VA San Diego, I have been heavily involved in providing clinical training and consultation. I have trained dozens of therapists at various levels of training (graduate students, interns, postdoctoral fellows, psychiatry residents), and am excited to be able to provide high-quality consultation to therapists in the community. I am passionate about helping therapists to provide evidence-based but flexible, individually-tailored, and culturally-informed treatment.
I have particular expertise within the realm of PTSD and its comorbidities, especially comorbid substance use disorders, presentations of prominent traumatic guilt (i.e., shame, moral injury), and insomnia. I can provide training in the following modalities: Prolonged Exposure, Cognitive Processing Therapy, Concurrent Treatment of PTSD and Substance Use Disorders using Prolonged Exposure (COPE), and Trauma-Informed Guilt Reduction Therapy (TrIGR). I can provide consultation on the implementation of these treatments with complex and challenging clinical presentations.
I also provide consultation in the delivery of cognitive- behavioral therapy (CBT) more generally, and can consult about how to incorporate other modalities (e.g., acceptance-and mindfulness-based approaches, dialectical-behavioral therapy skills) within CBT.
I genuinely love consulting with other therapists! Please reach out with any questions.
