I have expertise working with adolescents, adults, and seniors with a wide range of emotional and behavioral struggles including depression, anxiety, coming out, trauma, grief/loss, stress, anger management, relationship struggles, identity, parenting and life transitions.
As a Clinical Psychologist, I help people create meaningful change in their lives. My approach is self empowering and compassionate with a sensitivity to cultural differences and social justice. My strength as a therapist is in making deep connections with people, creating a sense of safety and helping clients identify and confront their issues. My personality style is warm, sincere, and down to earth. Those who see me describe me as someone who is "caring, warm, a great listener, interactive, and offers honest insightful feedback."

I believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship and think everyone deserves to be seen and heard. My hope is that with the support of therapy, one will feel less alone when facing their struggles and the parts of ourselves we try to avoid. My style involves integrating mindfulness and somatic techniques. I assist clients to access inner resilience and clarify personal values to live a meaningful and congruent life.

My therapeutic approach is a blend of multiple orientations as well as meeting the client where they are at. While every person is unique and responds to each type of counseling differently, I focus on Cognitive Behavior Therapy. It's important to consider the right counseling style that will fit the needs of the client.

I am native San Franciscan who believes in the healing power of community, creativity, and second chances. I began this journey volunteering at Juvenile Hall, followed by a seven-year stretch as a residential mental health counselor at Progress Foundation. Acknowledging a gap in services for SF residents living high-risk lifestyles and dealing with trauma, I decided to study Community Mental Health and creative arts based interventions in order to provide a spectrum of care often excluded to those most at risk in our neighborhoods.

My approach to psychotherapy is collaborative, empathic, and oriented toward achieving the results my clients desire. I provide skills to increase awareness of problematic patterns that can lead to feeling stuck. Left unaddressed, these patterns can take a toll on relationships, work, health, and self-worth. My goal is to create a non-judgmental and supportive space for exploration and change and to help people get back to living a more meaningful and enjoyable life. In addition, I emphasize a "strength-based" approach, in which I help clients identify and build from strengths and other positive qualities they already have.

Daily work stress, relationship conflicts, past unhealed trauma, life stressors that just seem unmanageable - all of these things impact our well being and our ability to function well in many areas of our lives. I am passionate about holding a space for individuals who are struggling and finding their way back to peace and balance. I have been practicing for 13 years with a bulk of my experience in a medical setting helping people navigate emotional and physical trauma, stressful family/relationship dynamics, adjustment to illness/injury, anxiety and depression.

Are you looking for therapy services for the first time? Or do you have experience with therapy and looking to continue your journey? While I understand therapy can be a difficult journey, I also believe it to be an insightful conversation. Part of my goal is to assist people with understanding the root causes of their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Therapy can also simply be a space to explore thoughts surrounding the difficulties of life. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I can help people understand how life’s difficulties can sometimes be traced to relational patterns.

To provide information about how individuals' beliefs, feelings, and behavioral patterns may impact self-reflecting and relationships with others, I employ a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Solution-Focused therapy. Another important aspect of my work is to emphasize how trauma might impact people's perspectives on their future objectives. I am also well aware of the need of adapting my therapy methods to each individual's distinct needs, which is why I employ a client-centered approach.

I provide a safe, positive, and comfortable environment for patients to share about their concerns. My philosophy is holistic care in therapy. Therapy is also a partnership for exploration, like a cave explorer guide supporting each diver in how deep he/she/they want to go. Emotional healing is like layers of an onion, addressing things layer by layer. Things may feel worse before they get better, but there is hope for change and healing. I look forward to helping you have a positive counseling experience!

Sometimes we’re not able to make the changes we want in life without additional support. Congratulations on taking this step! It is a scary one, especially when there can be cultural barriers and stigma to receive therapy. My goal is to support you to remove barriers to growth and change, so you align with your most authentic self, have healthier relationships, and feel a sense of peace. I am dedicated to creating a space that is warm, compassionate and accessible where you feel safe to explore the way in which you can build a more fulfilling life.

I believe therapy is a journey that has the power to heal and to help you become your most true self. My approach emphasizes the importance of the therapeutic relationship, which I believe is the primary mechanism for change. I believe we may work well together if you are interested in a relational experience and value an approach that focuses on connecting with and understanding emotional experiences. I work collaboratively with my clients to identify old patterns of relating to others that are no longer serving them and move towards new and healthier ways of being.
