In response to the Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, we are now offering teletherapy (therapy by phone and online by video) for all our clients, whether new or established. Also called telehealth or telebehavioral health, teletherapy can provide vital care and support to individuals, couples and families .

I work with individuals (children, teens and adults), couples and families .
Starting therapy can be both exciting, and anxiety provoking. Whether the focus is on specific discrete concerns, or exploring broader, longer standing challenges, therapy can be useful in understanding how aspects of one‘s temperament and relational tendencies can interfere with living life authentically, and with reaching one’s full potential. By addressing issues in real-time, while also considering the impact of situational factors and past experiences, therapy can help to identify areas of one’s life to examine and possibly change. Importantly, therapy often promotes resiliency, self-awareness and personal growth.

I have been working with LGBTQ+ communities and their families in mental health settings for the last 8 years. I'm passionate about providing a space for all people to be celebrated for their full authentic selves. I honor and respect the strategies clients have learned that support them in coping and surviving. Together, we can work towards becoming more aware and understanding of how these coping strategies and patterns best serve us, recognize what may no longer serve us, and find new ways of coping. I support clients with any needs or goals that they bring to therapy.

This journey can begin at any point in our lives, so my practice is open to teens and families as well as adults.
----------------**I do not currently have openings for new clients but can provide referrals if needed. Thank you. **--------------- We are shaped by all of our experiences, which can sometimes lead to us engaging with life in ways that feel painful, discouraging, upsetting, or confusing. I provide a space for people to explore deeper aspects of themselves, illuminating the underlying thoughts and feelings that can influence behaviors. Although facing our truths can be overwhelming, these discoveries can lead to lasting changes that shift the way we interact with ourselves and the world, creating lives we are excited to live.

My experiences include working in community mental health, hospital-based care, and family services.
My work is to help clients become the people they long to be. I sees the challenges we face not as signs of what is wrong with us, but as the result of what our experiences have wrongly taught us to believe about ourselves. Almost everyone seeking therapy is hurting in some way: we feel depressed, anxious, angry, or we are having relationship problems. We may be feeling guilt or shame. But when we talk openly about these problems, we can begin to change. We learn how these problems came about, but more importantly, how we resolve them.

I utilize a collaborative and mindful approach that is compassion focused and trauma informed to help you find healing. I hold psychotherapy as space for you to pursue wholeness and flourish in your life. I recognize the intrapsychic trauma that stems from issues of systemic oppression through racism, sexism, ableism, and other forms of structural violence. I am a queer friendly LGBTQIA+ affirming therapist. Through my experience working with individuals diagnosed with severe eating disorders and comorbid clinical issues, I am attuned to how western patriarchal culture creates shame and consequential body dysmorphia.

My experience includes 15+ years of work with research, children (including the foster care and school system), parents, families , adults, severe mental health needs, substance abuse, crisis intervention, couples, group facilitation, psychoeducation, assessment, and occupational stress.
It is a privilege to help others who are seeking support on their journey. As a licensed psychologist who enjoys working with adults, children, families , couples, as well as groups, I appreciate a holistic approach to lifestyle changes. It is important to consider physical, mental and emotional health to increase our quality of life. We don’t have control over some circumstances in life, but we can work to optimally navigate what comes our way. Cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, mindfulness for stress reduction, managing occupational strain and psychoeducation are some of the techniques I find helpful.

Relationships are complicated! I've helped many couples who have been interested in becoming happier and more effective in their relationship. It's not unusual to reach bumps in the road as you progress in your lives together. When we are in session, I'll talk with each of you to find out about you as individuals including your history and emotional strengths as well as challenges. As well, I'll learn what is working and what is not working for both of you in your relationship.

I've been treating adults, couples, families , and groups in CA since 1993 (and earlier, children, teens, families , university employees, addictions and psychiatric illness, back east 1985-93). My post-grad training was in Berkeley at The Psychotherapy Institute (long-term psychodynamic) and UCB Counseling & Psychological Services (brief and long-term). Recently I worked at San Francisco Kaiser treating adults, young to elderly, with a full spectrum of mental health and medical concerns. Based on my clinical background, I tailor therapy to your present experience, future hopes, and past conditioning so you can move forward, potentially even be "self-therapeutic."

I love working with LGBTQ and non-normative families .
My therapeutic approach centers on creating more opportunities for space and reflection. This is an active and transformative process where we learn how to interrupt old patterns of reacting and create room for intentionality in our responses. Many of us operate within the conditions of our early relationships and form ways of relating that we are longing to transmute. I support you as you learn to get to the root of the response, understand it, and to develop tools of self-healing so that you can one day see the well-worn reaction waiting for you, and choose something different.

Finding the right therapist can be hard. Maybe you're facing difficult experiences of grief and loss, serious illness, or family conflict. Maybe you're wrestling with depression or anxiety. Or maybe you just have a general sense that your life has lost meaning and direction. Whatever brings you in, I'll offer a warm-hearted and positive space for us to learn together about your particular situation, and about the possibilities for healing and transformation that can be found within it. Having someone to talk to makes a real difference.
