**Currently offering video appointments in observance of our shelter-in-place order.** Whether you want to get support around new changes in your life that are causing you pain and worry, or work through problems that have been with you for years, my goal is to help you feel relief, feel empowered, and adjust to the things that are out of your control. I take an open, non-judgmental approach to working with my clients. Prior to private practice, I was the Clinical Director at a San Francisco non-profit serving veterans. I enjoy working with adults, older adults, older teens (16+) and couples.

I specialize in working with teens, adults and older adults experiencing anxiety, depression, and going through life transitions. Whether you are experiencing grief and loss, struggling with uncertainty, exploring aspects of yourself and identity, working on self esteem, relationships, school and work, health or confronting big decisions and your place in the world, psychotherapy can provide a welcome space to learn, grow, process, integrate, express and heal. I support people in coming into greater clarity, connection, understanding, self assuredness, ease and peace about the past, where you are now, and where you hope to go.

You may feel lost, but you are not alone. We all experience suffering as a part of the human condition, yet sometimes our symptoms of stress, despair, worry, or self-criticism stand in the way of living the life that we want. If you find yourself troubled by a particular life problem or psychological condition, or generally lacking a sense of vitality and purpose, working with a clinician can help you reconnect with yourself and your strengths. Therapy often helps us to make useful connections between our actions, our thinking, our emotional reality, and patterns in relationships that we have developed over years.

You've come here because you're lost, lonely, confused or in pain. Perhaps you've done everything the "right way" but that hasn't led to happiness. You want things to change, but you don't know how, or where, to start. I believe I can help you, as I've helped many others, including myself. Therapy can be a radical, healing experience, and I attend my own therapy sessions on a regular basis. In our work together, you can unpack and witness your whole self in a safe, collaborative, and empathic way.

I am committed to my own growth and exploration.

My priority as a therapist is to create a safe space for you. When any of us seeks out therapy, we are likely suffering. To suffer is to be in a very tender place, and I want to honor that. Whether your suffering comes from early childhood trauma, more recent losses, relationship problems, social injustice, adjustment to big changes in your life...I want you to feel safe and companioned as you move toward tending those places of wounding and toward healing.

Do you feel unsettled in relationships? Or limited by other peoples’ ideas of who you should be or how you should act? Is it hard to turn off that critical voice inside? Do you feel exhausted putting other people’s needs before your own? Do you seek a greater sense of authenticity in yourself and others? Sometimes we don't have the words to describe our experiences and that's ok. Together, we can work to transform old patterns. Whether its clarifying what you need, improving communication, or getting past the unresolved, my goal is to support you and help you learn more about yourself and your most important relationships.

Life is challenging. We all benefit from receiving support as we navigate transitions, relationships, and the constancy of change. I have 20 years' experience supporting people who span a diverse range of ages and cultural backgrounds. My approach integrates body and sensory awareness with relaxation practices. I offer information about how neurobiological processes impact functioning and experience. The therapeutic relationship is collaborative and dynamic as we observe and shift unhelpful patterns of thought and behavior. Some people choose to make art as part of most meetings; others prefer to mostly talk.

I work with a diverse clientele and specialize in providing social justice oriented psychotherapy to Black people and other POC, as well as members of LGBTQIA+ communities. I provide culturally responsive therapy, which focuses on the strengths you already have. I tend to use a cognitive-behavioral theoretical approach (CBT), while also paying attention to your environment and access to social support. I work with you to build a safe space where you can share your experiences without the fear of being judged, and where you can focus on becoming clear about what you want, and how you want to go about making that happen.

As a clinician I like to blend creativity, practicality, and a down-to-earth personality to help create a catalyst for change. The issues I specialize in include eating disorders, mood disorders, OCD, trauma/PTSD, gender issues, and consensual non-monogamy. I believe that a genuine connection between client and therapist is one of the most important variables that determines the success of therapy outcomes. As such, I prefer a relatable approach when working with clients. I've been told that I have been able to "reach" clients in their deepest moments of darkness. I hope I can reach you too.

Choosing a therapist can be intimidating, especially for people of color. We might wonder if our therapist will understand the significant role of various cultural factors in our experience. I believe each individual brings with them a set of unique experiences, values, and goals, regardless of background. Perhaps you are an individual looking for a safe space to explore your identity, including ethnicity and gender. Maybe you are already in couples therapy and want the dedicated support of your own individual sessions. Or maybe you are having difficulty communicating with family members due to generational differences.

Even on your worst day I want you to be able to move forward. Through my own healing process, I realized the importance of having unbiased feedback. It allows you to ask the big questions- what does it all mean, what is self love, how does trauma get healed, who is the right person to help me figure it out? Sometime healing is best served and understood by someone who identifies with the same cultural representation as you.

My clients are often going through transitions and learning to cope with changes in their lives or things they may be unable to change. Many clients often express a need to “feel better”. Some clients may be suffering from depression, anxiety, or more specific disorders. I am able to help clients find ways to know their story and how they can overcome any obstacles in their life. Whether it be working on your new self or working back towards who they were before, I am here to help my clients achieve their goals.

Working at Stanford University and the University of California, Berkeley, helped me to develop these three recommendations for finding a therapist: 1) Find the "best fit" by meeting with (or calling) two or three therapists. Research suggests that the relationship you develop with your therapist determines therapy outcomes/benefits. Trust your judgement; pick a therapist that you like. 2) When contacting therapists, ask what experience they have working with your particular concerns. 3) Consider your preferred therapist demographics, such as age, ethnic-racial identity, and gender.

Has something in your life become too much to bear? If you’re feeling lonely, alienated, confused about your relationships, hurt, angry, or feeling unheard; if you’re finding the stress of parenting overwhelming, or feeling defeated by cycles of conflict, I'd like to help you. I work with individuals, couples and families wounded by their family systems, who have experienced trauma or abuse, have struggled with a narcissistic parent or partner, or have been negatively impacted by relationships with their in-laws. I passionately believe that with the right help, you can move from suffering and uncertainty to clarity and empowerment.

I specialize in somatic psychotherapy, a body/mind approach that helps you change core beliefs and attitudes that are causing you suffering. My approach is relational and uses mindfulness to bring awareness to the parts of yourself you don't ordinarily notice. In our sessions, we slow down and pay attention the story your body is telling as well as the mind. The work is highly experiential, creative and transformative!
