I specialize in focused treatment for individuals who are suffering from the after effects of trauma and other stressful events. As a PTSD researcher, I use my specialized knowledge to tailor evidence-based treatments to each person's needs with compassion. I have worked with people who've experienced a variety of terrible events, such as combat, accidents, abuse, sexual assaults, and near death experiences. After such events, it is common to experience a variety of problems, including PTSD, guilt, shame, anger, depression, anxiety, substance use, or emotional dysregulation. If you are experiencing any of these problems, I can help.

I work with individuals to create a safe place to explore patterns in your relationships, ways to heal from substance use or other self-destructive behaviors, or areas where you are stuck in fear or depression. 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. Therapy can offer a way to reconnect with our creativity, our compassion, sexuality, spirituality and sense of humor.

I work with passionate people who deeply want to feel connected and loved, but find themselves hurting in relationships. My clients come from backgrounds where they weren’t taught healthy relationship skills, and they realize they're stuck in patterns they want to change, such as self-judgment or blame, self-sabotage, avoidance, relational anxiety, codependency, or abuse. My mindset is everyone is doing the best they can with what they know. With a curious mind and multicultural lens, I help make meaning of what you do know, shed light on what exists outside your awareness, and help you learn new ways of feeling connected and loved.

I believe that a core component of living is about learning and growing and expanding as our journeys unfold. And, I am passionately sympathetic about how hard this process can be, and how difficult it often is to be human! As an optimistic psychotherapist with over 20 years experience, I am convinced of the human capacity for tapping into a deep source of inner wisdom, and our innate capacity to heal. Each individual can develop the self-knowledge and self-acceptance they need to confront their challenges and to restore a compassionate perspective to their lives.

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.

I tend to be very active and engaged in sessions with my clients and enjoy discussing practical tools that may be helpful. Let's talk about the hard stuff, learn to accept things we can't change and try to feel joy as often as we can.

Hello, there are some hurts in life that heal only through connecting with another person. Early relational trauma whether physical or emotional can create a heaviness that feels inescapable. Single incident trauma can have this effect as well. Sharing the story seems to exacerbate sleep problems, difficulty engaging in day-day activities, or just rising from bed. You do not need to tell me your story, just arrive and be willing to be curious. I offer therapy for PTSD, life transitions, grief and depression. In my work I offer myself as a supportive presence and companion.

With this background, I offer you a unique, experienced, and well-rounded therapist. (For safety reasons, I am currently only offering online therapy sessions.)

Pursuing therapy takes courage, and it can feel intimidating to enter into a new space, without a clear sense of direction. I believe that the trust and relationship between us is the first step to a successful therapeutic environment. It is important to me that we take the time to build and foster a collaborative, safe, and supportive dynamic for you to explore, heal, and grow. Through our work together, I hope to support you in exploring what makes life worth living, building insight, developing creative coping skills, enhancing connection with others, and instilling self-compassion into your life.

Many people, perhaps like yourself, find relationship issues with family, spouses, work colleagues very challenging and often these relationships evoke anxiety, anger and fear. Some people have had very difficult upbringings, and while they appear to cope, they are often emotionally surviving rather than thriving. This is a valid reason to seek therapeutic attention.

Welcome! I’m a licensed therapist with experience treating children, adolescents, adults, and families. My background in community mental health has allowed me to develop my skill set in advocacy while informing my therapeutic style. I particularly enjoy working with folks navigating emerging adulthood, exploring identity, and navigating life transitions such as career changes. I also enjoy exploring how the past impacts your attachment style and how understanding and naming these aspects of ourselves can support our journey toward healing. My goal is for you to feel safe, seen, and validated.
