I specialize in treating adults in their 20's and 30's. Most of my clients have the things that they believe constitute a good life (secure jobs, close friend groups, active social lives, etc) yet they continue to feel anxious, lost, sad, unfulfilled, burned out, and perplexed by what their purpose on this earth really is. Additionally, many of them experience significant distress caused by an endless drive towards achievement rather than fulfillment and a self-defeating pattern of comparing themselves to others.

My aim is to ensure that each individual with whom I work experiences a sense of being respected and heard by using an empathic, non-judgmental, and collaborative style. I strive to understand the past, present, individual and systemic factors that have led to current challenges and help guide each client to identify their values and develop practical goals for treatment. I meet each individual where they are at, while using a supportive yet direct approach to facilitate change and/or acceptance in an effort to help clients reach their goals.

My passion and specialization is working with children and their families, which I have experience with in both school and private practice settings.

Other prevelent issues in my work with both adults and children include: grief and loss, substance abuse, anger management, family reunification, divorce, and romantic relationships.

It’s a struggle to deal with anxiety, a harmful inner critic, or unsatisfying relationship dynamics. It can be hard to feel playful, to easily connect to others, to get your emotional needs met, or to feel at ease in your body. Whether you feel overwhelmed by your emotions or cut off from them, you know you want to do things differently but aren’t sure how. While I don’t work with couples, I do specialize in working with individuals who are carrying around belief systems that are keeping them anxious or detached in relationships.

If you are confused and uncertain whether you are on the "right" path in your career, relationships, or important life choices, then therapy may be a great avenue for you to explore and find the answers that are unique to you. Sometimes it can be really hard to "hear" or "feel" your truth, your intuition, and gut instinct when doubt clouds your mind and the internal dialogue and chatter are loud and debilitating. Having low self-esteem, or feeling insecure in relationships and goals in life can be stressful and anxiety provoking.

Therapy isn’t easy — but it doesn’t have to be joyless. If you’re looking for a therapist who can delve into the dark stuff with both the compassionate support and the sense of humor that it deserves, you’ve come to the right place. I work with women and LGBTQ+ folks on a range of issues, from managing depression and anxiety, to improving self-esteem, to healing from a past trauma or loss. Many of my clients have experienced violence in an intimate relationship, and I have specialized training to support survivors of domestic violence so that they can move forward in their lives and their relationships with others.

What type of San Francisco mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in San Francisco?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
