Hello! I am a Jungian psychotherapist, primarily based in the East Bay. I work with children, teens and adults. Most of my clients are people who have experienced being othered or marginalized, either by society or by family and friends. Many of my clients are queer, and/or neurodivergent, and/or have experienced trauma through abuse and loss. All of my clients are seeking to cultivate healthy relationships with themselves and others. Our work together aims to heal the wounds that get in the way of that happening.

I'll share practices that are body-led, slow, and sustainable for your body (nervous system), to process any stress, grief, or trauma held in the mind and body.
Welcome! You are here because you are the kind of person who is highly self-aware but still feeling stuck and know that it's time to receive support. You’ve tried some coping skills, but still find yourself trapped in the mind and it doesn't feel good to your body. You’re finally ready to go beyond talking-your-problems-out because it’s not leading to deep change. I get it. It doesn't have to be that way. I'll show you how to skillfully get unstuck because you're ready to live life with more ease, groundedness, and peace.

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.

Limited spots available, please reach out for details: Individual, Couples/Relationship, Teen Counseling. LGBTQIA+, Poly, Sex-Positive, & Kink friendly. Folks tend to come to me when they are feeling stuck around their anxiety or depression. They usually are holding questions around their sexuality/identity, life transitions, and processing grief or loss. They know that they have the wisdom to resolve these feelings inside, but they are feeling stuck on how to access them. Everything feels a little garbled, and I help them clear the way to access the answers to the questions they are holding.

Good therapy begins by finding a therapist who is a good fit. I am glad you found your way to this website to find someone who is a good fit for you. My areas of focus are helping people who are struggling with anxiety, depression, grief and trauma. These struggles can lead us to feel stuck, scared, overwhelmed, sad, exhausted. When our attention is focused on a few strong feelings, a few loud inner voices, and a few number of life choices, to the exclusion of other aspects of out experience, we feel limited and not fully ourselves.

I have more than 25 years of helping individuals and couples from diverse socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds work through concerns about intimacy, communication, grief, parenting, life transitions.
Choosing a therapist is a significant decision, and one in which it is crucial to trust your feelings. I am a very engaging, warm and thoughtful person. My approach is eclectic and interactive, and is adapted to the unique needs of each individual or couple. Humor, respectful listening, honest dialogue and collaboration are all important aspects of my work. My priority is to provide a safe connection as a foundation for growth, enhanced self-esteem, and well-being. Habitual patterns causing impasses, lack of passion, anxiety and depression, can shift once underlying needs and feelings are legitimized and given voice.

Life is harder than expected at times. Transitions, loss, trauma, persistent anxiety or depression, or a feeling that things will never change are just a few examples of the ways in which people can feel less hopeful about their lives. Psychotherapy is a tool that can alleviate the stressors of everyday life, improve one's sense of well being and connection with others and enhance one's self understanding. Over time it can also lead to a greater sense of competency and satisfaction in the world.
