My special interests are sexual health, intimacy, gender identity, LGBTQ+, relationship issues, stress management, depression, women's issues , trauma, substance abuse, gender identity, and low sexual desire.
My path into mental health was inspired by my desire to help others achieve a life of fulfillment and balance. I learned that sexuality, gender identity, self expression and relationship intelligence are importance concepts when identifying individual life satisfaction. These topics can often times be taboo to discuss in our society, leading to feelings of guilt/shame, increased isolation and loneliness. My goal is to normalize these conversations and therapy.

Are you a woman that has gained a lot of success professionally but struggle with finding a partner that you are able to connect with?

We all have things that we are uniquely suited to do, innate talents that when developed fulfill our sense of purpose in life. Perhaps you had to bury that purpose long ago. No matter what you've been through or how old you are, transformation is possible. Therapy with me is about figuring out what you truly want to do and overcoming the internal and external obstacles to doing it.

Psychotherapy with me will be a guided, supportive exploration of how you think, feel, act and relate to others. I am a relational therapist: an approach to therapy which combines self-understanding and self-acceptance in relationship to your significant others, both past and present. We all need to be understood. This is my primary job with you: to understand how you think and feel. Once you feel understood, together we can figure out what is getting in the way of living a happier, fulfilling life. I am an expressive therapist, and you will never go away from a session wondering what I think.

In the fast-paced, hyper-competitive Bay Area, it can be challenging to balance all of the roles that we assume. Work, school, money, technology, and relationship stressors can leave us feeling depleted. Anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and career dissatisfaction are some of the ways stressors may manifest. My aim is to support and help to empower you to improve your life by engaging in the life that you want to lead. This may result in increased effectiveness, happiness, and reduced suffering in all of your roles.

I offer you an empathetic, direct, and practical presence in your journey towards healing. After becoming a physician (I am a licensed Obstetrician Gynecologist), I discovered another calling of mine is working with people and their emotions. As a therapist who is also a physician, I bring knowledge and wisdom of medicine, the body, and the mind-body connection. With this background, I offer you a unique, experienced, and well-rounded therapist. (For safety reasons, I am currently only offering online therapy sessions.)

The decision to embark on the path of healing and face oneself, is not an endeavor to be taken lightly, as it requires courage, vulnerability, and patience with oneself. With that said, intentionally delving into a healing process can be a powerful and liberating experience - an amazing journey, filled with new discoveries about oneself. In my practice I help my clients shed light on their unconscious process, gain more awareness about themselves, including what motivates them, and better understand how they relate to others in their lives. I also support my clients in finding healthier ways of relating and coping.

When we have an experience that is traumatic or incredibly stressful, our brains have a hard time processing that memory. This can create symptoms such as, anxiety, depression, overwhelming emotions, difficult feelings, self-blame, or relationship problems, to name a few. If given the opportunity, our minds, like our bodies, have the innate ability to heal. The trouble with difficult experiences, however, is that these memories get tangled, leaving us feeling stuck or showing up in other destructive ways in our lives.

The early years of parenthood can be simultaneously some of the most rich and challenging in our lives. My passion is in helping new parents through the big choices and feelings in raising a new human being, while also nurturing the parent, partner and person they most wish to be. There are often unforeseen challenges that occur at the very time we are most depleted and stretched thin, and difficulties in identifying and communicating our own needs while caring for others. I'd love to help you feel supported and understood so that you can parent from a place of greater strength and confidence.
