I have extensive experience helping clients navigating the concerns listed on the side, and hold particular skill in supporting LGBTQ + clients across the lifespan with concerns relating to sexuality, gender identity, and relationships.
Life is a continual process of establishing and reestablishing various identities for ourselves, and sometimes that gets messy or confusing. Sometimes the ways we think and behave become incongruent with what we want and value. Sometimes we have a hard time knowing what we want and value. Sometimes external events or unforeseen challenges disrupt what we envisioned for ourselves and the future. It can feel tricky to navigate issues of identity development, change, grief, loss, anxiety, decision-making, relationship stress, disillusionment, and life transitions alone. But that's what therapy is for.

In particular, I have advanced experience in helping LGBTQIA individuals better their mental health.
As humans we have an immense power in our ability to gain insight into our own thoughts, feelings, and actions. However, we often get so caught up in our everyday activities that we are unable to fully understand what is happening on an intrapersonal level. Psychotherapy provides the opportunity to gain this insight, and make changes based upon what we learn, using effective strategies that have emerged from decades of research.

I'm here to help find fulfilling and lifelong sexual/intimate satisfaction, whether you are partnered or single, straight, gay , bi, poly, kinky, asexual, furry or fandom. These days, so many of us are seeking less stress and more balance. The Bay Area is a worldly place, many come excited by its progressive sexual energy. Others may find sex confusing, challenging to talk about, or even perhaps, their worst nightmare. Most want better ways to communicate, especially about sex; perhaps to deepen love and connection, or for a path to restore trust and find pleasure. Sex can be juicy and life affirming, I am here to help you find that.

Trauma, attachment, stress management, LGBTQ , diverse lifestyles, and cross-cultural issues are strong interests.
MINDFULNESS, BALANCE, GROWTH, AND EMPOWERMENT. It is possible to achieve a higher level of inner peace and reduce unnecessary suffering. We all can "lose our way" at times and find ourselves in situations that are difficult and painful. I believe that these crises can hold within them tremendous opportunities for growth and strengthening. Although most enter therapy during a crisis, the therapeutic process need not also feel painful or traumatizing. I will create a safe and validating therapeutic environment in which to transform personal suffering into strength and wisdom. We will collaborate to establish clarity and direction in our therapy.

I love working with those who don't always feel comfortable or "seen" in clinical settings: LGBTQ + folks, kink/BDSM practitioners, sex workers, POC, poly/open/nontraditional relationship architects, people with disabilities, Burners, self-proclaimed weirdos, and anyone struggling with or exploring identity.
I believe that experiencing loving, nurturing relationships is the best part of being alive. I also recognize that for many of us, creating and maintaining such relationships can be incredibly hard. I view psychotherapy as a means to explore whatever is currently blocking our path to healthy, fulfilling and supportive connections--both to others and to ourselves. Sometimes that means building skills we never learned in the first place. Other times that means examining challenging past experiences. Whatever the circumstances, I am here to support your journey toward growth, fulfillment, and ultimately, greater joy.

I also provide LGBTQ + affirmative therapy.
We all feel lost from time to time, but there’s always light at the end of the tunnel. I’ve been through my own therapy as a young adult when I was stuck in a bout of anxiety and panic attacks due to childhood trauma. Throughout my years of working with traumatized individuals, I learned first-hand about how childhood trauma can have a strong impact on adulthood. I can help you address unresolved trauma, in order for you to find passion, connection, and purpose in your life.
