I have over 35 years experience in helping individuals bring attention to their issues to gain insight and acceptance--allowing for change and growth.

I specialise in working with adults and children who have a tendency to withdraw into themselves.
I practice within a psychodynamic, relational framework, with a focus on issues of trauma, neglect, depression, anxiety and isolation. My clinical experience have been in hospital and hospice settings that surround anticipated grief and bereavement; community mental health outpatient settings and research institutes. Reaching out for help can be a daunting and vulnerable step, and understanding what it is you are entering into can help soften feelings of confusion and apprehension.

I've had an array of clinical experience working with children and teens in schools and adults in private practice.
Many of the people I work with find their way to me because they feel lost, broken or hopeless. In my San Francisco psychotherapy practice I tend to work well with people who have exhausted all of their go-to strategies and are in search of something deeper that will lead to the long lasting change they desire. Likely you have worked hard at developing an external image that may have gotten you far socially and professionally but internally there is a deep sense that you are irrevocably lost at sea, unlovable or useless.

We are currently surviving, learning to navigate our lives during a health crisis. With such a fast pace, I deeply believe therapy provides us the container to check in with ourselves and find that moment to catch up. I invite you to give yourself the gift of three deep breaths - inhale deeply and exhale slowly letting something go repeat another two times. No matter what brings you into therapy, I aim to create a safe space alongside you. Every person is an expert on their own lives and I am here to simply help as WE discover and learn the tools to live a life that feels most authentic to YOU.

My work is first and foremost relational, whether that is your relationship with yourself, your child or parents, or other important people (and pets) in your life.

Clients who usually fit well with me have often reached a point of thinking that enough-is-enough, whether that is problem behaviors with a child, teens who are anxious/irritable/depressed, college students who are having major life changes, or adults who are having work or personal difficulties. I particularly specialize in the treatment of Trauma & Stress-Related Disorders.

I also specialize in therapy that focuses on the relationship between the child and parents.
My therapeutic approach mainly focuses on helping my clients identify their strengths to help alleviate anxiety, depression, and trauma. I am a firm believer that our childhood experiences contribute to our beliefs, behavioral patterns, and selecting a romantic partner. Therapy is a process! To allow ourselves to be intimate and vulnerable with someone about our experiences and trauma can be daunting. As a therapist, it is my goal to help validate, create a safe environment and help understand aspects of lived experiences.

I have specialized in Child, Adolescent, and Family psychotherapy since 2004 with an emphasis on Psychodynamic, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Family Therapy.
Some people struggle for weeks, months, or even years before considering psychotherapy. And it makes sense — it's hard to confide in a stranger and can take a while to find the right fit. We want authenticity and experience in a therapist but also someone relatable and easy to talk with. When couples counseling, family therapy, or child/adolescent support is needed, the search may seem even more daunting. We need a clinician with the interpersonal skills, temperament, and adaptability to forge a meaningful connection with our partners, children, and the networks who support them.

Some of my focuses include issues related to depression, anxiety, troubles finding or staying in a relationship, perfectionism, self-harm behavior, and parent/child relationship ruptures.
Your experience is worthy of exploration and I believe that we all benefit from a protected space to journey through our history, needs, thoughts, and wishes around who we've been and who we want to be. I'm also familiar with the many ways that we can feel prohibited from giving ourselves such a space.

In raising children and processing the many emotions that came with it, I healed my childhood wounds.
I don’t want to give you the usual pitch on what I can offer as a therapist. The truth is, there are a lot of amazing therapists out there. There are also many that might not be the right fit for you. At the end of the day, finding a strong connection with a therapist is what matters most for seeing results. So I will be as direct as possible- I connect best with clients who are curious about new perspectives and want to think deeply on how they came to be the person they are today. Those who are looking to improve themselves and their relationships tend to connect best with the way I work. If this sounds like you, please read on.
