Women ’s group therapy is so powerful. I believe we, as a society, have lost touch with the profound benefits of gathering as women to support one another with our issues, like women have done for generations. I create a safe emotional space for women from all over California to support one another, while also using my clinical skills and training to help treat the ongoing mental health struggles that women face today. Whether you're looking for the support and camaraderie of other women , or your needing a lower cost option for therapeutic support, my groups are open and do not require a commitment. Visit my website for more info! :)

I have several decades of experience utilizing a combination of specific therapies that promote deep and rapid healing, such as Cognitive Imagery, EMDR and Solution Focused Therapy among others. I work with men and women experiencing all sorts of difficulties, from anxiety and depression, trauma, substance abuse, a sense of pervasive emptiness or relationship issues. People develop many behaviors that don’t produce the results they want and even seem to cause more problems.

> Women , BIPoC and the Queer & Trans community are the heart of my practice < You are high achieving, reliable & responsible. Despite outward signs of success – ‘being the first in your family to ___' or 'having made it’ – you are suffering from imposter syndrome, self-worth, and acceptance (yours or your families). You are longing for relief from high stress levels & crushing anxiety, loneliness, or depression. Your relationships are strained & you have difficulty relating to others. You feel like nobody understands you. You don't feel truly seen. You rely on avoidance to escape feeling this way. Except that it's no longer working.

I've spent the last two years working almost exclusively with women and young people, primarily remotely, with an emphasis on complex trauma and social justice.
I find that my clients are passionate, sensitive, often highly creative people searching for a place where their full self can be witnessed, celebrated, mourned, or whatever the day calls for. They may struggle with grief, sleep, anxiety, and/or motivation, and often come from families with a legacy of unprocessed trauma, which can take many forms. Ultimately, my clients are looking for a place to try out new ways of being in the world, ways that better support their deepest values and most important goals.

In my 9 years as a licensed trauma-informed therapist (LCSW), I have helped many women ages 18 and older learn how to heal from past trauma, and show up for themselves.
Are you constantly feeling self-defeated? Does it feel like what other people want from you is more important than your needs? Are you unhappy because you try so hard to please everyone else? Is it a real struggle for you to be vulnerable in your relationships? You are not alone. Many of my clients struggle with the same issues! You are here because you have made a powerful choice —to put yourself first. You've decided that you are ready to heal.

Life can be busy. Sometimes we just need to take a minute to breath deeply and think about what we need. Seeking out a therapist for yourself is a great place to start. Taking the time for yourself to start therapy will allow you the space to breath, talk about what you are experiencing and find ways to live a balanced and positive life. When there are so many competing needs, it is easy to lose ourselves. I work mostly with woman experiencing life transitions such as parenting, blended family structures, relationship changes and professional transitions. These are all big changes where it would benefit you to take pause.

I offer a background in anger in women , Black identity, codependency, intergenerational trauma, interracial relationships, multiracial identity, and sexuality and desire in women of color.
Carl Jung said, "I would rather be whole than good." Very often we put pressure on ourselves to "be" a certain way, so much that life can start to feel like acting versus living. This pressure tends to place stress on individuals and can often lead to anxiety, depression, and stress. I believe that therapy can be a tool to take off the masks we have learned to put on and begin to live from our whole self; finding freedom and our creativity. I believe that through compassion for all the parts of ourself we step closer to freedom.

I help young women navigate the unexpected in their relationships.
You’re a really great partner. You do so much for the relationship and genuinely care deeply. The relationship wasn’t perfect, but you really thought he was “the one”. Until this happened. Now it’s hard to get through the day without anxiety taking over. It’s hard to talk about it with friends and family. Everyone thinks you have it all together. You’re usually the friend people talk to about their problems. You never thought this would be part of your story. You feel embarrassed and you don’t want others to judge you or him. You wonder if you missed the regd flags. Outside of the relationship, you’re not totally sure who you are.

While I’m endlessly curious about whomever walks through my door, I work well with people struggling with weird eating patterns/body image issues, working through complicated grief (no matter what the loss is), women wading through the stormy transition of menopause, or anyone who self-identifies as an outsider.
I combine 20+ years of experience doing insight driven depth therapy with the use of Brainspotting, an innovative therapeutic technique designed to help the brain process material on the subcortical level. Brainspotting is generally marketed as a treatment for trauma but it's also applicable in many other ways. I've used it with clients to shift ambivalence or indecision, to treat somatic symptoms or pain, parasomnias, social anxiety, eating disorders, for emotional distress that's not necessarily based in something traumatic, to enhance performance or to see if we can shift some place in their therapy where they have felt "stuck."

I specialize in working with women and femme-identified people, BIPOC, LGBTQ+ and creatives.
Do you ever struggle with a sense of belonging in this world, feelings of unworthiness, isolation, and disconnection from the life you’ve built or relationships you’ve chosen? My clients are often people who are searching for their authentic voice, yearn to reconnect to their intuition and ancestral wisdom, and create a sense of home in their bodies and lives. They realize that their depression, anxiety, grief and feelings of being lost are signs for them to look closely at the landscape of their life and discover what is calling for their attention beneath the surface.

I have a warm style of relating and can at times bring humor to our work.

I work with individual women , men, and couples. Currently, I offer telehealth video/ phone sessions. I'm honored to walk with and support you on your journey. Many clients coming to me might experience: a desire to improve their relationships, communication skills, intimacy, recognizing self-sabotaging patterns, seek to understand their emotional experience, feel overwhelmed, or misunderstood. Additionally, negative body image, self-esteem, and feelings of shame may be present. My work here is often in uncovering how these issues were rooted, have function, where the strength lies, and how all are an opportunity for transformation.

I’ve worked with women and youth in East Africa to the streets and communities of the San Francisco Bay Area using mindful, holistic approaches of therapy.
Can we be real for a moment…or maybe 50 minutes? In that time we can have real conversations between real humans living real experiences. What's covering up your truth, holding you back from your dreams, silencing your voice? Overwhelming sadness? Loss? Anger? Abuse? Trauma? Tired of the struggle? You hold the power to create, nourish, and mold your life. This will not be easy; you will be challenged to look at yourself, then take a second look, (maybe a third), a bit longer this time and rediscover who you are; not by masking or covering the wounds, the trauma, the pain, but by redefining it, by your terms.

Does this sound familiar? ~You are a multi-passionate being and also an undercover artist, healer, leader and creative; yet, you feel guilt for prioritizing your own emotional and mental wellness. ~ You are aware of the pressure to perform under expectations and judgments imposed by your family, work and cultural standards. ~ You have achieved success but you don't believe you deserve it. ** In our work together, you will feel seen and supported as you embrace your natural resilience and creativity. You will rediscover your astonishing, healing story.

It is through my experience as a brown woman that faced external pressure, doubt, fear, and judgement, in which I was able to weave through a newfound resilience.
The heart of my work centers around adults of the South Asian Diaspora. My goal in emphasizing my practice here is to recognize a need for folks to have a therapist who truly understands their background and can create safety in talking about parts of the culture that can feel shameful or misunderstood from a Western perspective. The most common areas of focus include family of origin issues, intergenerational trauma and creating space to heal your inner child, acknowledging your grief, exploring your TRUE identity, and cultivating positive relationships by creating boundaries and building self-esteem + confidence.
