My professional training is in evidence-based theories: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (+ERP), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Mindfulness .
My practice focuses on individual therapy for adults with anxiety and stress-related issues. Over the past year, many people have experienced an increase in stress that has overwhelmed their usual ways of coping. This includes stress related to interpersonal relationships, work or home life, or worsening of previously managed anxiety. If this resonates for you, my goal for you in therapy is to empower you with a better understanding of yourself, provide you with a new skill set to manage stress, and enable you to live a life you value.

I focus on mindfulness and helping you develop a sense of deep care for yourself and your life.
My passion is working with clients from unique backgrounds and/or experiences who often contact me because they want to work on or through complex trauma, such as oppression based and/or inter-generational trauma. Modalities used addresses the concerns of those whose race, ethnicity, gender identification, income, disability/accessability, and other social factors which often go unrecognized/disavowed. Issues that arise for minority groups, such as oppression, racism, and marginalization, are relevant, recognized, validated, safely contained, and honored by me.

I am a certified PPP Parenting facilitator and developed/ implemented a curriculum integrating neurologically informed movement and mindfulness practices with clinical work.
I offer you an open space in which together we can explore and understand difficult feelings and thoughts. Through this collaborative process you will have the opportunity to deepen your understanding of yourself, allow your emotions to be processed, and work through uncomfortable/ difficult feelings. As a result, life becomes easier to navigate and more meaningful. Like any relationship, it has to feel right to you. What I bring to the relationship is my warmth, curiosity, compassion, honesty, years of expertise, and the ability to dive deep into issues without judgment leading to long-term change.

My extensive training in Mindfulness and Psychotherapy provides a unique quality to my work.
I specialize in helping teens, young adults, and parents with the anxiety and stress of preparing for college. My approach is primarily a mindfulness , acceptance-based cognitive therapy. Teens dealing with the transition in adulthood often behave in ways that are complicated to understand, let alone parent. I prefer work collaboratively, teaching clients mindfulness skills which can enable them to discover useful skills in overcoming anxiety.

Working primarily from an interpersonal/relational perspective, I also integrate mindfulness and skills building into my approach to helping individuals, couples, and adolescents develop greater awareness of themselves and improved skills and capacities for adapting to the difficulties in their lives.
I have over 12 years experience working with adults, children, and adolescents experiencing relationship problems, anxiety and mood concerns, emotional and/or behavioral troubles, trauma and loss, and difficulties with burnout and the compassion fatigue of caring for loved ones with these issues. If you are an adult attempting to work through such difficulties in your life, the partner of someone having these problems, or if you are a parent seeking help for your child, I would welcome a chance to talk with you about how I may help.

I work from a relational, strengths-based, and insight-oriented framework, and use a variety of theories and tools, including coping- and skills-focused activities, somatics, mindfulness , play therapy, and art.
Psychotherapy is a powerful tool for healing. Through a trusting therapeutic relationship, it is possible to improve connections with others, build deeper awareness of feelings and experiences, and find relief from old patterns that no longer serve you. I believe that each client’s strengths provide the foundation for our collaborative work in therapy. Building on your strengths and resiliencies, we can begin to shift places in your life where you feel stuck, and to cultivate hope. It is an honor for me to witness your process and to join you in your journey toward healing.

My work is informed by evidenced based therapies, including mindfulness based compassion therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy.
If you are ready to learn more about yourself and develop a positive path toward growth seeking assistance can help you refocus on what's most meaningful to you. People come to therapy for many reasons, including needing help in handling stressful life transitions, to reduce psychological distress, increase one's self worth and to develop a better understanding of themselves. During therapy, we will explore unhealthy patterns by looking at the interplay between your thoughts, behaviors and emotions and how they affect your daily experiences. You will learn to develop fulfilling relationships, ways to cope in healthier ways, and ultimately live a fulfilling life.

I have studied mindfulness and meditation for the past 13 years and find that even those who “don’t like meditation” can be surprised by how a few mindfulness skills/ tricks can significantly help them to reduce their suffering in areas of challenge.
I am seeing clients in person in an OUTDOOR space as well as virtually. Finding the right match in a therapist is essential to beginning this uniquely personal process. Therapy often gets a bad name when there is a sense of disconnect between client and therapist, which can make therapy feel like another struggle. Life is challenging enough. I am committed to creating a comfortable and genuine dialogue with each client, or to offering more fitting outside referrals. I am able to put people at ease, welcoming humor where appropriate.

My time is split equally between two offices -- Rockridge and Palo Alto. I help couples, families, individual adults and teens face a wide range of challenges, including healing from early life trauma (all severities, including Dissociative Identity Disorder), Bipolar Disorder, personality disorders, personal and professional transitions, relationship and family struggles, dilemmas of faith and fulfillment, and meditation and mindfulness cultivation. I especially enjoy psychotherapy involving collaborations with other therapists and/or blending meditation and other kinds of spiritual practices with psychotherapy. I value diversity -- my clients come from a wide range of orientations, economic means, and cultural backgrounds.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.
