I specialize in treating LGBT concerns (individual and relationship), and augment my practice with specialized training in transgender care.
*I offer teletherapy to clients in California, Nevada and Colorado. I offer in-office visits in Sacramento and San Francisco when allowed by local ordinance and client comfort.* Sometimes we expect far too much from ourselves. Each client is invited into a space where there is no expectation and where they are free to be themselves, without fear of judgement or misunderstanding. Adults can sometimes struggle to find space to hold compassion for themselves. Couples (and all variants of relationship structure) can also use a nonjudgmental time and space to feel heard, while building tools for communication.

I have extensive experience working with professionals and entrepreneurs, as well as members of the LGBTQ and Asian communities.
I understand how important it is for my clients to feel supported and be able to address their immediate concerns as quickly and as effectively as possible. I view therapy as a collaborative process where I work with my clients to acquire the appropriate coping skills for their present difficulties while gaining the understanding and insight needed to handle future challenges. By working together, I will help you to build on your strengths and expand your skills to not only cope with the obstacles in life, but to optimize your well-being and to reach for your full potential.

My specialties include managing and reducing anxiety and depression; navigating life transitions; feeling unfulfilled, indecisive or "stuck"; increasing self-esteem; dating, sexuality, and relationships (presence or lack thereof); parenting; LGBTQ concerns (questioning or exploring identity, coming out, and same-sex relationships); healing from trauma; and coping with physical health problems.
Searching online for a therapist is not easy but finding a good fit is essential to feel safe and get the most out of your effort, time, and money. I work collaboratively and actively with adolescents, adults, and couples. We will work together to recognize and develop your strengths, to understand and change unproductive or painful patterns, and to help you gain relief from suffering. I emphasize safety, respect, honesty, and compassion for self and others. I offer a free initial phone consultation. If I am unable to help, I will try to provide you with referrals to others.

In addition to working extensively with anxiety issues, I specialize in helping clients improve their relationships with their partners/spouses. I wholeheartedly welcome both straight and LGBT clients into my practice. I often tell clients that everything makes perfect sense (ie. the problems they share and how they react), and all we need to do is find the right pieces of the puzzle to help them understand. It is from this understanding that relief and solutions arise. By truly understanding what anxiety is an isn't, we learn how to navigate it so it doesn't control our lives.

PTSD, grief and loss, disability, medical trauma, attachment parenting, adoption, alternative families, LGBTQ issues.
Do you feel trapped by your past and anxious about your future, unable to live in the present? This malaise of modern living is often a sign of past trauma. I can help you uncover the experiences that keep you from living a full and zestful life. My primary focus is with women and parents, particularly those with a history of trauma. In therapy you'll explore the feelings that arise in your body, and notice their links to negative thoughts. You can choose a new and more positive narrative, to look at your life through a different lens.

Becoming our most alive and authentic self is the goal of psychotherapy. If you are like many of the people that I work with, you have felt that being yourself wasn't accepted or valued in relationships, your family, or the world in general. In therapy, you have the opportunity to non-judgmentally challenge and change these learned beliefs and grow into your true self. I am especially interested in working with couples, relationship problems, anxiety, trauma, sex and sexuality, and LGBTQ .

I specialize in working with LGBT couples, non-traditional families, and adults in transition.
It is through our relationship with others and our relationship with ourselves that we can learn who we are. I work with families, couples and individuals as they navigate loneliness within and between relationships, manage life transitions, navigate grief, and learn to better understand their mental and physical health. I am passionate about the work that I do and have seen how therapy can be a place to find self-acceptance, resilience, forgiveness, and healing.

I also have a strong commitment to working with LGBTQ issues / diverse lifestyles! Whatever your situation may be, I would be honored to guide and accompany you on your journey to greater well-being.
Don't Let Your Feelings Get The Best Of You. Is a persistent, overwhelming sense of grief and sadness preventing you from living the life you want? Are you dealing with intense emotions of shame, guilt, or hopelessness for seemingly no reason at all? Perhaps you have experienced a traumatic event or childhood neglect that is manifesting as fear, anxiety, or helplessness. Or it could be that you recognize the signs of depression but feel like you have nowhere to turn. If any of this sounds familiar, you are not alone. And I want to assure you that there is much we can do to help you find inner peace and greater contentment.
