About three-quarters of my practice is devoted to individual therapy with gay men and counseling for gay couples. The remainder of my therapy hours are devoted to women, the parents of gay men, and others. I specialize in gay and bisexual issues, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, aging, trauma, personal isolation, relationships, intimacy, sex, HIV, and survivor issues. I have written extensively about the psychological and social issues of gay men and gay communities. My most recent book, released in June 2019 by Farrar, Straus and Giroux (and Penguin in the U.K.), is "Out of the Shadows: Reimagining Gay Men's Lives."

I specialize working with queer, gay, bisexual , & transgender adults & adolescents in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am most passionate about providing advocacy for cultural and economic diversity in our community and serving LGBTQ+ people experiencing depression, anxiety, and PTSD. Engaging in therapy is more important than ever especially in response to our current political climate and recent backlash of conservative values showing incredible disrespect toward the LGBTQ community and throwing extra stress at immigrant populations and communities of Color.

I particularly enjoy working with transgender and gender queer youth and adults, as well as lesbian, gay and bisexual clients.
Living a life that feels true to ourselves may take additional support and understanding. Sometimes life becomes overwhelming, either because we are faced with trauma, loss, illness and other transitions, or because we are experiencing unexplained feelings that are keeping us in a stuck place. I would like to work together with you to help you better understand yourself and create the changes that you want to see in your life. My style is relational and authentic. I want you to feel supported and better able to become who you want to be. I use mindfulness and CBT when helpful.

Finding the right therapist can be a daunting process. I believe in trusting intuition when it comes to evaluating a match with a potential therapist. In my experience, a positive and trusting connection is the basis for creating growth and change. I work with adults and adolescents over 14 on a variety of issues, including achieving greater mood stability, identity issues, improved relationships and sexuality and recovery from trauma. I have experience working effectively with people who identify as trans or genderqueer, and those with diverse lifestyles.

Hi! Thanks for considering me as your therapist. Whether you’re struggling with a past trauma or current anxiety, depression, or a major life transition, I’ve been helping people learn to live the best life possible for well over a decade. My interest in mental health began as a young adult after going through countless hours of unsuccessful therapy sessions and deciding there has to be a better way! Unfortunately, people often pick a therapist "out of a hat.” But successful counseling and psychotherapy is largely determined not only by a particular therapist’s expertise, but by the rapport and trust you develop with your therapist.

U.S. society at large makes it easy to feel like we're not enough; late stage capitalism thrives off of our anxiety and disconnection. I am here to remind you of what you already know but might have forgotten: you are enough. Indeed, there's enough of everything for all of us. Many clients find their way to me because they want to work through challenges related to their identity, acculturation, sexuality, gender expression, relationship formation, and early traumas. My identities as a queer, non-monogamous, sex- and kink-positive, immigrant woman tend to attract potential clients who share some of these positionalities.

There is a way to be your most authentic, whole, healthy, vibrant, loving self. It begins with connection and a compassionate understanding that you matter and that you belong. Your existence on this planet is a miraculous convergence of events that stretched back centuries. And because of this, you might be carrying more than what is yours. If you feel overwhelmed, stuck, defeated, depleted...this is a difficult part of being human and things don't have to stay the way they are. Reach out if you have questions or would like to see if we are a good fit.

With mindfulness and compassion, I help my clients transform their limiting beliefs, access their strengths, and move toward a greater sense of wholeness and ease. Couples describe my work as insight-oriented and free from blame or guilt. Colleagues and clients have called my style authentic, direct, and compassionate. I always try to provide warmth and a quick sense of humor. I believe remembering the past is helpful to the extent it helps heal, and so while we’ll be attentive to the past, our focus will be on how its legacy is impacting your life now. Our work will be relieving of past pains and also bring more calm and joy.

Life can be hard. Sometimes we feel stuck. It may be that recent events, difficult feelings or relationship challenges are making it clear that some things are not working. It could be that stress, worry or confusion have felt overwhelming and lead to unhelpful patterns with yourself and the others you care most about. Within the frameworks of relational psychodynamic and body-oriented psychotherapy I offer a warm, supportive presence so you can explore whats difficult, hone your strengths and become more fully yourself.

Are you feeling depressed, anxious, struggling with relationship conflict or substances? Sometimes, the very strategies we use to feel safe, to belong, to get approval, and to feel loved – to survive – no longer serve us. When we try to carry these strategies into adulthood, it can lead to high conflict, challenging behaviors, anxiety, depression, and substance use. For couples and families, I work from an Emotion Focused Therapy approach exploring clients' reactivity, triggers, and hurts that underlie conflict and helping them find other ways to respond that lead to more trust, intimacy and connectedness.

I’m not beating around the bush here: things are pretty messed up right now. And when it feels like the world is on fire, of course you’re going to be freaking out. Maybe your life seemed fine until recently, and maybe you’ve been struggling longer than you can remember. Either way, I am here to help. I work with all ages, genders, sexualities, racial backgrounds, cultures, and subcultures. From work stress to identity crises, communication problems to childhood trauma, all issues need space to breathe, and a big part of that is finding a therapist you can be real with.

To paraphrase Alice Miller: the opposite of depression isn't happiness; it's vitality. My clients tend to be people who want to feel more in control, more at peace, more effective, more connected, more present, more focused, more decisive, more flexible… more alive. They seek relief from patterns -- sometimes chronic and severe, sometimes only subtly nagging -- of painful feelings, negative thoughts and self-sabotaging behaviors that stem from their experience of growing up in particular worlds and particular histories that were traumatic or difficult or confusing.

There are so many pressures about who we should be. Sometimes, we have to hide parts of ourselves to fit in. And we lose touch with who we truly are and what makes us feel alive. This disconnection to our truth can lead to feeling depressed, anxious, lonely, or not good enough. Are you longing to feel accepted for who you are? Therapy is a non-judgmental space for you to explore what matters most to you. I can support you in healing old wounds and transforming patterns that lead to feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or drained. I offer various approaches that integrate mind, body, heart, and spirit.

I utilize an embodied & relational approach that is curious, compassionate, strength-based and trauma-informed to help you achieve your goals. I attune to issues of systemic oppression such as racism, patriarchy, capitalism, colonization, ableism, fatphobia, and other forms of structural violence and its related traumas. As a queer, non-binary child of immigrants, I'm familiar with bi-cultural experience. I'm sex & sex work positive, and experienced in working with kink/BDSM & non-monogamy/polyamory. I'm a good fit for folks who want to experience greater fulfillment, pleasure, and, satisfaction in their relationships & life.

As a licensed clinical psychologist, I enjoy working with adults and couples from diverse backgrounds who seek to improve the quality of their lives. Is there a place you find yourself stuck? Have you tried all you can and still find yourself in emotional pain? Do you have some insight into what may be happening, but want to seek professional support to grow and thrive? Whether you are familiar with counseling or not, each person's therapeutic journey is unique. Some people come with a specific goal in mind and others prefer a longer supportive therapy, traversing the many layers and aspects of their life.

I am working with only couples and adult family members at this time, I am not taking individual clients. I invite couples (with an emphasis on lesbian and gay couples) as well as adult children and their parents to develop more honest and compassionate ways of relating. Sessions often begin with a check-in - what is happening right now, and what are the issues that you may want to work on. That is followed by a free flowing discussion. My aim is to provide a safe container where feelings and ideas can be expressed and received.

I provide short-term therapy of 1 - 4 sessions. With compassion and humor I provide a safe place for adults to get help with personal situations such as relationship/work stress, break-ups, retirement, chronic/ life-threatening illness and disability, depression, anxiety, dementia, care-giving of people of all ages, and "coming out". Life transitions have a common thread - loss, grief, and opportunity. Even joyful experiences can be difficult. You may feel stuck, out-of-control or have worrisome regrets and anxiety. You may feel "at a loss", you can't just "shake it off", or feel "it's taking a toll" on you.
