I specialize in working with queer and polyamorous individuals and relationships, as well as those navigating fertility, pregnancy , birth, postpartum , and parenting.
It is in our nature to change and grow. Our relationship to our bodies, sexuality, gender, friendships, environment, community, romantic partnerships, and ways of thinking is constantly evolving and transforming. This is the ebb and flow of our lives. In order to embody and dream the future we desire, we need to be in relationship with where we come from: presencing individual, inherited, and cultural practices that have contributed to the context we are in today. As your therapist, I offer unconditional presence, curiosity, and capacity to support exploration, embodiment, and learning to tune to the body's wisdom and experience.

I work with adults with a wide range of difficulties, from anxiety and depression to struggles in relationships to prenatal and postpartum challenges to concerns around self-esteem and identity.
It takes a great deal of courage to begin therapy, and thus I strive to create a space in which individuals feel truly seen, heard, and deeply understood. I believe that people are intrinsically resilient, and I will work with you to gain a deeper understanding of yourself so that you can make meaningful changes in your life. Together, we will work toward navigating difficult transitions, improving the quality of your relationships, and developing more effective coping skills. My style is warm and collaborative, and I always tailor treatment to individual needs.

I have extensive experience working with issues related to identity development, trauma, attachment insecurity, relationship instability, emotional dysregulation, low self-esteem, and postpartum depression and anxiety.
Therapy is the process of coming to a deeper understanding of ourselves and how we approach the world while contained in the therapeutic relationship. I aim to create a safe, compassionate, and collaborative space to explore why patterns of thinking and interacting have become painful. In my experience, this process leads to improved relationships and communication, greater confidence and enjoyment in life, relief from feeling stuck, strengthened coping skills to manage life stressors, and progress towards one's inherent potential to thrive.

Sometimes the coping strategies that we use no longer work for us. And the usual support systems we turn to, are at times just not enough. Therapy can be an added support to help us figure out new strategies to cope with the challenges and times of transition in our lives. I provide a calm and reflective space, where together we will reach a deeper understanding of what holds you back and what changes you need to make to live your life more fully. Some areas of specialization include women's issues, perinatal and postnatal disorders, early parenting and cancer.

I specialize in working with young adults and college students, parents, individuals in the perinatal period, and those who are experiencing life transitions, or have a history of trauma.
The decision to pursue therapy is often not an easy one. However, in working with a therapist, most people find a sense of relief that comes with learning that change is possible. Whether your concerns are long-standing patterns or new adjustments, through collaborative exploration within a therapeutic relationship, new ways of relating and coping can develop.

I have experience and training in the areas of infertility, assisted reproduction and donor-conception, as well as perinatal loss ( miscarriage , stillbirth, termination due to medical diagnosis).
I help people build strong, connected and intimate relationships--with their partners, spouses, families or themselves. I particularly enjoy working with couples to improve communication and bring an end to fighting. I also provide reproductive counseling to people who are building families in non-traditional ways, whether due to medical infertility or "social infertility" (same-sex, transgender and single parents-to-be).

I specialize in working with individuals suffering from symptoms of anxiety and depression, both circumstantial and life-long, perinatal /maternal mental health struggles, challenging life transitions and developmental stages, those seeking relationship building/separating, parenting, first-time, brave therapy seekers and an essential desire to be understood. It can be intimidating to begin the process of self-exploration. It is not a simple endeavor. However, when the fit between psychotherapist and therapy seeker is a match, it can feel immensely relieving. Each individual is unique as is one's process of self discovery.

I find it important to examine the societal context of individual suffering, particularly themes related to oppression and injustice, and tend to be the most well suited for working with sensitive and creative individuals as well as those who struggle with depression, anxiety, self esteem, loss/grief, pregnancy / postpartum and chronic/ terminal illness.
It isn't difficult to feel scared, vulnerable and not good enough in our complex world, let alone if you have a history of being abused or neglected. Therapy can help you slowly make sense of the past so that you can encounter the present moment with more awareness and vigor. I am psychotherapist with an abiding love of the arts and often work with sensitive and creative individuals, many of whom have histories of abuse/neglect and are struggling to make sense of their past and present lives in order to find a greater sense of freedom/comfort within their own skins.

We all deserve to feel safe and connected. Sometimes, overwhelming things happen that prevent us from feeling safe and settled in the world. In therapy, we support the strengths that have helped you survive and grow your capacity to move towards the life you long for. Whatever you are experiencing, be that anxiety, depression, or the pain of trauma or oppression, together we will collaborate to tend to what hurts and to nurture the vitality that exists inside you.

Something is shifting in your life. The earth beneath you is not as stable as it once was. Maybe it's a major life transition, like going to college, getting married, moving to the Bay Area, or changing jobs. Maybe it's a loss, like a death, a divorce, a miscarriage , or leaving someone or something in your life. Or maybe this transition is harder to put your finger on...you might be feeling stuck and needing something to shift. There are many moments in life that offer an opportunity to transform, or require us to change if we are to continue growing.

I have experience working with lesbian individuals and couples from decision-making to pregnancy to birth and beyond.
Are you a lesbian couple in the process of deciding to become parents? Are you an individual seeking support while you and your partner are thinking about beginning a family? There are unique decisions that you may be currently facing such as, pregnancy or adoption, which partner will become pregnant, and how will both partners feel involved as parents. It is important for you to have a safe space to explore these questions. There are feelings that accompany the decisions that you are making, and partners may feel differently. This sometimes challenges the connection between you.
