Announcement icon During CoVid-19 I have transitioned to Telehealth Zoom video conference care for both individual clients and groups.
Therapy is not a "one size fits all" approach. I am an integrative psychotherapist with an extensive background in working with mood disorders, dual diagnoses, prosocial behavior management and stress reduction. My approach is to integrate elements of several schools of therapy to address the emotional, behavioral, psychological, cognitive and spiritual dimensions of my clients. This strength-based approach allows me to design a therapeutic strategy for each client based on their specific areas of concern.
I'm an experienced clinician & Clinical Faculty member, UCSF School of Medicine. I have experience in inpatient, outpatient and partial hospitalization programs and am comfortable working with child/adolescent, and adult clients manifesting a broad range of emotional difficulty. I enjoy collaborating with professionals involved in my client's treatment.
My background allows me to offer additional specialized approaches in expressive arts therapy, guided imagery, CBT, and stress management techniques. I offer expertise as a Certified Group Psychotherapist (CGP) and facilitate ongoing dynamic, supportive groups structured to enhance personal growth.
