I help clients shine a light on things that are not serving them - limiting beliefs, negative habits, low self-esteem, self-critical thoughts, or unhealthy relationships. Each of my clients is an expert in their own experience, and my role as a therapist is to help you understand and take affirming actions and positive steps in the right direction. I have a particular interest in working with people navigating times of transition, relationship issues, or a deep desire for a greater sense of meaning or healthier self-esteem. I also am interested in working with teens and emerging adults struggling to define themselves.

People can feel stuck in their lives for many reasons. You may have vague feelings of dissatisfaction, or have an idea of what isn’t working but struggle to find a way forward. Perhaps you're feeling overwhelmed by familiar feelings from earlier difficulties or trauma that are being stirred up by current situations. My aim is to help you uncover the meanings and underlying causes of patterns of thinking, feeling, and interacting that may be holding you back. These can emerge in addressing day-to-day challenges, or while untangling old narratives formed by deeply rooted experiences.

Self-discovery is a process that can be both incredibly challenging and tremendously rewarding. Sometimes we seek it out and often it finds us through painful and uncomfortable symptoms or experiences. A few of these that I see in my practice include relationship challenges, anxiety, depression, health issues and blocks to self-expression. As a parent, I also work with postpartum moms and new parents as they navigate parenthood. Challenging experiences can lead to powerful healing and profound change. I believe in this process because it revolutionized my own life. I am honored to accompany others in their version of this process.

We are all works in progress - or as I see it, masterpieces in the making. In therapy, my hope is to create a safe place for you to share the challenges of being human in this world. It is a place to explore pain and patterns that continue to show themselves, a place to explore how family, community, institutions, and social systems have impacted us, and a place to grow in awareness so as to participate more authentically in the fabric of life. I believe we all have the capacity to heal and view my job not as healer but as human creating a space for you to find the healer within yourself.

If you struggle to stop or reduce substance use or other addictive behaviors, I can help. I use a harm reduction approach to understanding and treating substance use and abuse. Instead of focusing only on one’s addiction, this approach explores other contributing factors, such as co-occurring mental illnesses, family relationships, and medical problems. It encourages the client to explore their unique needs and background, and to develop their own treatment goals, which may involve moderation management, in addition to abstinence. I also offer treatment for other impulse control disorders, such as sex addiction.

Our mental health doesn’t exist in a vacuum. We need to look at the context of our past, our relationships, and the world around us to be able to understand ourselves and the challenges we face. As a therapist, I’m here to help you put those pieces together so you can step into a more authentic, empowered, and connected version of yourself. I work with clients who are looking for a combination of improved insight and practical tools to improve their relationships with themselves and others.

Stepping into therapy with someone is an inherently risky process. You are courageously opening up to someone that you don't really know, in hopes of changing, of finding something new, of building a relationship that can create positive change. I respect those who take the leap and I get the importance that you find the right therapist so that you can be understood at a deep level and begin looking more closely at the places in your life that you would like to see change.

I tend to be quite direct in my approach and begin therapy with a combination of focused goal and solution oriented work. As the therapy proceeds, I then branch out into deeper issues concerning the unconscious, dream work, unresolved trauma and more. Additionally, I specialize and am not limited to, treating depression, anxiety and chemical dependency. Lastly, I also enjoy working with adolescents, couples and families. ** I host a podcast called "Look, Just Tell Me What To Do" which addresses issues related to mental health which is available here https://lookjusttellmewhattodo.podbean.com/ or on most podcast platforms.

All of our clinicians have been trained specifically in psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy/ ketamine-assisted psychotherapy at notable institutions in the field and collectively provided treatment to hundreds of people.

Are you struggling with relationships? Are you experiencing the many ways substance use can create pain, whether for you or someone you love? Are you living with a mental health condition that requires support? Identifying limiting beliefs and unhelpful behaviors is an essential step to living an emotionally stable life, whatever difficult crossroads you may be experiencing. Often, emotional recovery begins with healing long-buried childhood trauma. My goal in therapy with you is to be your guide on this healing journey. You don't have to do it alone. And I believe relief can sometimes happen as early as the first session.

I have been living and working in SF for 25 years and understand how challenging and rewarding it can be; it's important to find balance. Processing emotions, thoughts and experiences with a therapist can help you get unstuck and live your values. I help people gain perspective on unhelpful thoughts and behaviors, to increase insight about your feelings, and to define your personal system of meaning by looking compassionately at your relationship to your body, relationships and career. Authenticity is being at home in your body which allows you to express yourself clearly; studies show authenticity is closely linked to happiness.

Coming from a holistic, mind-body, humanistic, compassionate perspective, I work with clients who desire to improve the quality of their lives, reducing stress and emotional pain. Clients may suffer from loneliness, depression, low self-esteem, anxiety or loss. They may need help with communication awareness, grounding methods, self-care, sexual fulfillment or life purpose. These conditions are more normal than abnormal, while sometimes feeling overwhelming. I invite clients to listen to and trust their innate wisdom, guiding them to identify and move through the obstacles preventing them from living their life to the fullest.
