Hello and welcome. I have extensive experience and training in, and enjoy working with, the LGBTQ , poly, sex-positive, sex work, kink, and asexual communities, as well as with transgender emotional health, anxiety and depression, substance use concerns, IVF and surrogacy, single parenting by choice, and careers in the arts, law, and tech. I am currently trying to help combat screen fatigue by conducting sessions exclusively by phone. You may find that not having to commute to a therapy office saves time and that taking a walk while speaking is not only effective but also pleasant.

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.

Is one or more of your kids on the Spectrum or have the ASD/ADD/OCD triad? In your relationship, is one of you on the spectrum and one not and is that causing misunderstandings and problems? Are you on the spectrum and having trouble understanding the non-spectrum people and world around you? I can help you bridge differences and deal with conflicts and meltdowns in an empathetic and constructive way. Also, I work for with LGBTQ people and couples with a variety of mental health concerns like anxiety and depression. It's hard growing up different from your peers. It can cause low self esteem, crippling self doubt and anger.

While much of my experience has been centered on work within the LGBTQ community, I strive to create an open and affirmative space for all.
Meaningful relationships are an essential part of fulfillment and happiness. I believe in the unique power of the relationship that develops between therapist and client. Through an exploration of this interaction, we can more wholly understand your past and current relationships and help shape future experiences. I work with people who are struggling in a variety of ways and are ready to dig in and do some difficult and deeply powerful work that will lead to greater choice and freedom. I view my opportunity to join individuals in their journey toward self-understanding as a great privilege and find the work exciting and gratifying.

Expertise: sexual & gender diversity, erotic pleasure, relational intimacy, honesty, breaking the drug-sex link, men (cis & trans ), masculinities, men's sexuality, discovering/ owning/ exchanging power, ethical alternative relationships, Kink/Fetish/BDSM.
Do other therapists seem judgmental? Don't understand? Won't listen to you? If you need to talk about anything and everything, clients tell me I have a strong capacity for compassion, empathy, and care. At the same time, I’m forthright and candid. I see you and hear you—a whole person (body, mind, spirit) living in an interactive and interconnected world. I believe you're the expert in you--even if you're not yet aware of it. My role is to help you find that, and bring my own holistic vision, experience, training, expertise, and tools to the table, so you can work to be the best possible version of you.

I am dedicated to working with people of diverse backgrounds, experiences and identities, and am well-versed particularly in work with creatives, ex-pats, transcultural couples, adult children of immigrants and third culture kids, bi-racial men and women, and queer -identified and non-binary individuals and their families.
Perhaps your relationships, career, or creative pursuits are not going as you would like. Challenges around identity and sense of self may be plaguing you. You may feel bogged down by feeling frustrated, unmotivated, anxious, overwhelmed, guilty, ashamed, or sad. Whatever your struggles, together we can help you better understand what’s going on and what may be getting in the way of change. I take as a basic premise that you are more than a collection of symptoms or a problem to be fixed and believe that you and what troubles you deserve our full attention and thorough exploration with the goal of long-term sustainable growth.

I am an integrative therapist, using a holistic model and techniques from somatic, relational, inter-subjective, and transpersonal psychology, as well as techniques from my own long-standing spiritual practices, such as drumming, chanting and Vipassana Buddhist meditation practice. I got my masters in Psychology with a Somatic Concentration from JFK, Orinda, CA in 1997. As LGBTQIA identified and a Pacific Islander, I know that both trauma and healing can come from our individual and cultural histories. I welcome anyone seeking growth or healing and I'm committed to healing within marginalized communities. My areas of specialty include people with histories of trauma and/or addiction, people looking to integrate spiritual experiences, people of color and members of the LGBTQ community.

I specialize in attachment theory, addictions& addiction related issues (like codependency). I also enjoy working with premarital couples/couples wanting to strengthen communication skills or rebuild trust within their relationship. Caregivers were the first to teach us how to relate to others. Healthy relationships are often not modeled for us & we wonder why the same troubled patterns repeat. I can help you gain insight into these patterns & work together to have healthier relationships. My goal is to get to know you, establish a strong connection, and provide a safe space to begin your healing journey together.

I am uniquely skilled in engaging the struggles related to men's issues, trauma, life transitions, spiritual development, and the LGBTQ community.
As a licensed therapist based in San Francisco, I help individuals and couples dive beneath the surface-level issues to discover the underlying causes of their distress. Many of the men and women who choose to work with me are in the grips of anxiety, depression, addiction, grief, or relationship challenges. Many are highly motivated professionals that are self-reliant and achievement-focused, but often struggle with self-defeating thoughts and patterns that keep them feeling stuck.
