"Whatever you have lived through--healing is possible. I provide therapy for people living outside of the mainstream, whether because of values and ideals or personal identity. Therapy with me doesn't require that you or I believe there is anything wrong with you. Instead it is a place where both of us work collaboratively and creatively to develop an environment where you can take more and more risks to be yourself. It is a place to keep growing. It is a place to get real about what matters to you and what challenges you. Keywords: radical, queer, artists, activists, social justice, progressive"

"You’re smart and good at what you do... but are feeling undervalued or marginalized. The Bay Area wasn’t what you expected, and sometimes it feels isolating. Getting through it all has meant holding things in, but it’s taking a toll. Perhaps, it’s been affecting your relationship with yourself, your friends, or your loved ones. Shutting off emotions might work for a while, but somehow, they keep coming up. If you know something has to change, but are not sure what, therapy can help you gain clarity about what's happening and how to move through it. Imagine being more true to you and grounded in your strength and resilience."
