My focus is to provide individual, couples, and family therapy for court-involved cases, reunification therapy, and co-parenting counseling.
Have you ever felt like someone could help you lift up your life? Therapy is a shared process with you and me together to discuss your uncomfortable issues. I offer warmth and compassion to enhance your ability to make your own choices and take actions that are effective toward your goals. My approach is evidence-based and client-centered, and it is influenced by mindfulness, multicultural perspectives, and family systems. I carefully draw from the insights and techniques from psychological theories that I believe can effect change.

Stressful encounters, complex life experience, academic stressors and more, can often cause college students, teens, and children to struggle with feelings of anxiety, depression, inadequacy, body image issues, and negative self-talk. In my career as a licensed marriage and family therapist , I have had the opportunity to work closely with clients struggling with these kinds of challenges both at school and at home. My goal as a therapist is to help my clients thrive and flourish by equipping them with the tools and guidance they need to navigate daily stressors, grow their self care, and improve coping skills.

Are you struggling to feel optimistic? Do you wonder why you can't just be happy with your life? If so, you’ve come to the right profile. I work with people and couples that are managing anxiety, grief, illness, ADHD, relational and intimacy issues, life transitions, religious abuse, and family of origin trauma. Together we can create a path toward healing by utilizing a blend of therapeutic techniques that include attachment theory, inner child healing, reparenting, and shadow work. I'm sex-positive, supportive of all lifestyle and relationship paths inclusive of monogamy, ethical non-monogamy, LGBTQIA, and kink.

I look at the whole child, to understand developmentally, socially, educationally, socially and within the family system to better understand the etiology of your child's struggles to provide appropriate therapy.
With over 20 years of almost exclusively working with SF Bay Area teens and their families (and a mother of two teenagers),-I have a solid understanding of the issues adolescents face, the struggles they encounter, and the mental health problems that are so very prevalent for them today. Depression and anxiety are at all all time high for teens and understanding the why isn't always so clear. My clients are facing a myriad of concerns - school refusal, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, substance use, social struggles, disordered eating, behavioral issues, just to name a few. One in thing is common is that they are all hurting,

I have extensive personal and professional experience with addiction and it's effects on both the individual and the family dynamic.
Are your habits getting in the way of living your best life? Do you consider yourself a "functioning" substance user? Maybe you are ready to change but 12-step programs or rehab are not for you. My approach is coaching-based, and solution focused. Sessions focus on authentic self-discovery, recognizing and removing patterns that are keeping you stuck, setting realistic goals, and developing strategy to achieve them. I work well with individuals in a transition period of their lives, and with those who are motivated to make a change. I will help you develop a plan and accountability.

I offer psychotherapy through a person centered approach and will support you or your family to get through core issues.
As a therapist, I look for the basic goodness of human beings and try to bring clients having locus of control in their lives and share perspectives leading clients to feel liberated so they find the meaning of life; fulfillment and happiness. This takes practice, as our minds naturally scan for the negative, but if we try, we can almost always find something good about you and others which will lead us to heal and peace and may bring harmony and joy to our life. Personally, I enjoy reading books regarding history and philosophy. I have a strong passion for helping children and adults, including parenting issues.

I practice using an integrative approach to therapy, drawing upon art therapy modalities, Internal Family Systems, humanistic, transpersonal/mindfulness practices, and a social-justice orientation of multiculturalism and diversity to inform and provide an empathetic foundation from which the process of growth can flourish.
I know how important relationships are, and how little we are taught about how to do them! I work with women who are feeling disconnected from themselves. Women who are struggling with body image issues, eating disorders, trauma, boundaries and relationship issues. I'm here to help facilitate a relationship between you and all parts of you. I believe there is creativity, reflection and expression inside of everyone and it can be easier to communicate without words. I bring warmth and energy to the room, my laugh is infectious. I bring levity to situations that can sometimes feel overwhelming and heavy.

OOO 6/30-8/1. Do you feel like you keep making the same mistakes in your dating relationships? Do you find that when you finally get the committed relationship you thought you wanted, you feel insecure in ways you didn't expect? Everything we feel and react to is sparked by our interpersonal interactions. When those interactions cause self-defeating reactions, you can feel insecure, lonely, and defeated. I want to help you change your patterns. I help people calm the chaos in their mind and their life. You will learn that you can manage your life (relationships, family , career) with strength and confidence.

Wellbeing is enhanced through connection, freedom and purpose. Therapy done right builds on personal connection, finds unrecognized freedoms, and orients it all with purpose, values and place. My therapeutic stance integrates these threads with unusual openness, warmth, balanced intellect and wit. My practice cultivates resilience not dependence, vitality not the victim trap ideology that has taken over the field. I can help you acknowledge and overcome painful situations, reckon realistically with limits, and untangle other matters of the heart. Pain is a part of life, but you needn’t suffer or manage alone.

I draw from evidence-based client-centered modalities including Transpersonal Psychology, Ecopsychology, Internal Family Systems, Gestalt, Family Systems and Somatic approaches to healing.
I view therapy as a collaboration where therapist and client work together to connect with an inner healing intelligence and unconditional positive regard within each of us. We can then tend to trauma, grief, resentments, and limiting beliefs that are contributing to symptoms. With humility and reverence for the resilience, courage and vulnerability it can take to heal ourselves, I create a nonjudgemental, kind and compassionate space with room for humor, absurdity and fun.
