I'll be on a leave from December to April. I will be accepting new patient in April 2023. When emotional pain feels too much, it can also feel hopeless. Sometimes we hide that pain—turn into work & other distractions—or other times no matter the effort to hide it, it comes seeping out where we least desire it. I believe we can address your struggles & pain, as well as explore your past experiences to help heal the parts of you that have been hurt, abused or mistreated. Amongst my specialties on the right, I focus on working with survivors of sexual abuse to provide a safe space to explore troubling experiences.

Do you often feel “unworthy,” “not enough” or “unloveable?” Are you stuck in shame spirals? You know, those intense self-loathing narratives and overwhelming emotions that erode your ability to live potentially. If this sounds familiar, I’m here to help. I support people who want to live bigger and brighter, but have struggled with self-esteem, consent violations and sexual assault , sexual and gender identity formation, sexual enjoyment and body-image issues. By showing you how to bring compassion to these issues, and the shame spirals they cause, I can help you learn to love yourself, others, and the world around you.

You've probably got a lot going on; your relationship is strained, demands on you at work are increasing, or ways you used to cope aren't working anymore. Whatever brings you to therapy, we can figure out a way to feel better together.

My experience extends to having worked with culturally diverse individuals, couples, and families of all ages, who are encountering life’s challenges.

I do both brief and long-term therapy with individuals and couples using a variety of techniques and modalities including deep listening, EMDR, relaxation training, exploring connections between current struggles and past experiences, increasing body awareness, and using creative expression as a part of therapy.

My therapeutic style is grounded in a humanistic approach and Cognitive-Behavioral therapy with a pragmatic, down-to-earth style. Each client's therapy is individualized, collaborative, and strengths based. I help clients learn to regulate and manage feelings that overwhelm them and negatively affect their thoughts, moods, and attitudes that, in turn, lead to destructive behavior. Whether it is anxiety, depression, diminished self-esteem, or relationship issues, individual clients come to understand their present circumstances in light of their past. I am committed to helping clients improve relationships and gain self knowledge.

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.

My work with you begins with the recognition that it takes courage to seek help. You may have questions about why you feel the way you feel and why you do the things you do. I believe you are not defined by your symptoms. Whether you struggle with love, work, or relationships, whether you are in crisis or you have received a mental health diagnosis, I believe that your true desires, conflicts, and needs are meaningful and worth actively getting to know. From our first session together, I meet you where you are.

Video and Phone Sessions available to all California Residents - A lot has changed about life as we know it. As someone who usually is able to manage, support others, and be on top of things you may now be feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, and even unsure what to do. The ways you know to take care and succeed are not available now or have deeply changed. People may even be reaching to you for help. Yet, you yourself are feeling scared, worried and isolated. You also need a safe space to process, make sense of what's happening, and only have to pay attention to you. I can help.

Choosing a therapist can be a daunting process. I am inspired by anyone who is willing to reach out to a complete stranger, in order to challenge and heal themselves. I believe safety and non-judgment are among the most important aspects of the therapeutic relationship. I am committed to supporting you as we explore your thoughts and feelings, looking closely at barriers that until now have limited your insights and clarity. Your power to feel better comes from looking inward, instead of out, and I want to help you do the work to get to that healing place.

Emotional problems can be difficult to cope with and resolve alone. Whether you have experienced a painful loss, are suffering from anxiety or depression, are feeling stifled in your relationships, or cannot seem to reach your goals, the help of an experienced professional can assist you in initiating the changes that will allow you to lead a more satisfying life. Understanding your emotional life is essential to your personal and professional well being. We use to have this top-down notion that reason was superior to emotion. However, recent research clearly shows that we think better when we know and can process our emotions.
