I have been trained as a Jungian oriented depth therapist, blending narrative therapy, mindfulness and cognitive behavioral techniques.
The people I've been able to help most feel stuck and crave direction in recovering an assured sense of who they are and their potential. We are all creatures of adaptation and many of us learn early on to adjust to whatever the world asks of us. Accordingly, we may internalize the priorities of our parents, our peers, and our culture, agendas that don’t always serve our own interest.

Additionally, I have been a meditator for many years and also use a mindfulness -based approach to help my patients discover their true natures and what they truly believe.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist with over thirty years of psychotherapy experience. I've come to view what I do as an unique and specialized form of education. I "teach" not so much by telling people what to do (although good advice can sometimes be very useful), but by offering supportive, empathic and honest feedback. Individuals and problems are unique; sometimes solution oriented approaches are warranted, and other times insight and exploration help to provide clarification and relief.

If you feel anxious, overwhelmed, or out of place I want to help you connect with what matters to you. I work with autistic and otherwise neurodivergent adults as well as individuals struggling with anxiety. We all deserve a life where we can truly be ourselves. I will support you in harnessing your strengths to pursue the goals you care about. Goals might include alleviating burnout, combating self-stigma, building stronger social supports, or better understanding and communicating your needs.

I hope to provide a warm and caring environment to work towards your goals! I use approaches rooted in a strong evidence base including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), mindfulness -based approaches, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I), the gold-standard treatment for chronic sleep disturbance.
I specialize in evidence-based treatments for depression, anxiety, and insomnia in adults.

Therapist/client fit is essential to a productive working relationship in therapy. As such, it is my policy that interested clients must reach out to me directly.

Ways we can help: reducing consequences associated with substance use, treating co-occurring disorders such as depression, grief, anxiety, trauma, or personality disorders, teaching mindfulness skills to interrupt the desire for immediate gratification, working with friends and families to help them understand addiction and address codependency.
If previous attempts at stopping substance use have failed or if you want to learn to manage your use rather than abstain, call us for a free phone consultation. We approach addiction as a biopsychosocial phenomenon and can help you understand the biological, emotional, and behavioral factors of your drug use using evidence-based interventions. Our therapeutic style is compassionate and non-judgmental but we will also be direct and challenge you to deeply examine your choices. We strive to create a safe, confidential environment where you feel comfortable exploring your choices.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients in San Francisco with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.

Mindfulness Based therapists in San Francisco can help with issues like anxiety and depression in their role as San Francisco MBCT therapists.
