My therapeutic approach is integrated, combining: Depth Psychology, IFS , Attachment Theory, PhotoTherapy, Art and Narrative Therapy, Exposure and Response, CBT, and Women's Spirituality.
I am a warm, compassionate psychologist who practices therapy with a "power with" rather than a "power over" approach. I have personal experience with many life events including single parenting, divorce, caring for elderly parents, and overcoming depression. I specialize in treating eating disorders, body image, identity issues, depression, trauma, anxiety, and cancer related distress. I have extensive experience working at the residential & outpatient levels for eating disorders, and provide supportive therapy for not only the client, but for the parent or significant other who supports them.

I draw from state of the art therapy practices which includes EMDR (Certified), Sensorimotor, Somatic Experiencing, and IFS .
Trauma and its related challenges can cause anxiety and sadness. You might wonder, will this ever get better? How long can I tolerate this bravery? I welcome supporting you. If complicated life themes tend to show up unexpectedly in your relationships, substance misuse, transitions, getting along with colleagues, distancing yourself, public speaking and more, I can help. Let’s collaboratively explore this knotted chain, which is really a portal into what blocks self confidence and connection. We'll find new solutions, reduce or resolve triggers that effect your everyday life in a way that is paced.

I draw from a variety of therapeutic modalities that include humanistic, family systems , attachment, and trauma-focused therapy.
I create a safe and nurturing therapeutic space for adults, couples & teens who are facing major life transitions such as college, career, divorce, or personal loss in finding a joyful and fulfilling path forward. I also provide empathetic guidance to the “sandwich generation” – women and men who are raising children while also caring for their elderly parents and struggling with anxiety and depression as they attempt to juggle it all. I help families navigate the complexities of raising children, adolescents and emerging adults in a healthy, cohesive way.

Hello! I am a therapist who draws heavily on approaches such as EMDR and Internal Family Systems to help someone make deep changes in their life. Common issues include relationships, work, health or some other kind of painful or challenging transition. You might be feeling overwhelmed, stressed, burned out, stuck, or overcome by confusing emotions. I can work closely with you to help you gain clarity and confidence. I would collaborate with you to explore in a very curious, accepting and compassionate way what you need to feel empowered to create a more meaningful and satisfying life for yourself.

Depending on your needs, we may incorporate modalities such as Internal Family Systems ( IFS ), Brainspotting, TRE (Trauma and Tension Release Exercises), Mindfulness, and elements from trauma-informed yoga as I'm also a registered yoga teacher (RYT-200).
I help adults who struggle with complex trauma (personal / societal / intergenerational), anxiety, or depression, to heal emotional wounds, transform self-defeating patterns into positive actions, and attain a sense of control, connection, and harmony. My approach is mind-body focused, warm, and compassionate with a bit of humor mixed in. We will go beyond quick fixes and explore parts of you that carry burdens from the past, get to know them, and learn to understand how they developed and why, so they can be healed.

A tenured therapist with over 8 years of experience, I use Internal Family Systems therapy to help my clients increase their curiosity and self-compassion.
At times you feel like a fish out of water in your own life. You’ve learned to deflate yourself to avoid tension or judgment, compartmentalize to keep your emotions at bay. Your life looks great on the outside but you’re beginning to think that in creating it you’ve lost connection to who you actually are. The identity you’ve created doesn’t feel like the full you and you're at a loss for how to reorient yourself. In all of the busyness you've created in your life, you haven't found time to prioritize self-rediscovery. The days keep passing and it's getting harder to ignore the discontent you're feeling.

You're too old to not have relationships figured out. But lately, you've started to wonder if it's just normal to feel invisible, if it's even possible for you to have a relationship that makes you want to smile. When you show up as yourself the way the latest article tells you to, all you hear is that you're too much and nothing changes. Now you just find yourself shutting down, keeping as out of the way as possible. You’re tired of feeling scared that your partner will leave. Or even worse, that she'll stay and you’ll be stuck feeling this way forever. Breathing deeply and stretching into your skin feels impossible.

Do you struggle with depression, anxiety, other mental health problems, and/or use drugs, alcohol, or food to manage or get rid of these symptoms? Are any of these problems affecting your job, health, relationships, or even causing legal problems? If the experiences of relief and well being you’ve depended on from substances or compulsive eating are causing these or other problems and you no longer feel in control I welcome your call. There are solutions and you can again, or for the first time, feel like you are being true to yourself and to those who care about what's happening to you. Reaching out for help is essential.

I am particularly effective in working with bright and highly sensitive teens. During this pandemic, I believe that our most perceptive, sensitive adolescents are having the biggest mental health challenges with not seeing friends, family, and teachers on a more regular basis. I have extensive experience as a School Counselor in both private and public schools in the SF Bay Area. I also have designed and taught Social and Emotional Learning at several private schools. My ideal client is a teen facing the obstacles of anxiety, depression, learning challenges or social skills challenges at school or home.

I work with individuals from young adulthood through older age, and couples have been a specialty for more than 25 years. Life events and experiences can cause stress, confusion, grief, and myriad other feelings which, when internalized, result in anxiety and depression. Whether seeing couples or individuals, I have found that a combination of insight and understanding, attention to feelings, and cognitive and behavioral change is most effective in addressing both internal and interpersonal conflicts and concerns. I work with people to resolve, heal, accept, and cope with loss, trauma, illness, family, marital and work issues, and more.

Are you experiencing critical thoughts or feeling that you’re not good enough? Have these thoughts started to cloud your sense of who you are and weigh you down? I am here to help you put these painful thoughts to rest. The burdens of tough experiences pile up and cause both an emotional and a physical toll. You may have noticed that not only are you feeling down, but your work and relationships are also suffering. When our feelings have not been sorted out, it is common to feel the weight of them and to feel stuck. I view myself as a guide to walk side-by-side with you as you move from surviving to thriving.
