My clinical approach to working with teen and adult clients is to provide a safe as well as non-judgemental place to process difficult emotions and situations that may be hindering a healthy and balanced life. I work from a client centered and relationship based model allowing for optimal growth to shift the patterns that are causing you to feel stuck. This enables change, positivity, and renewed energy in your life. Some common reasons people seek therapy are; difficulties with peer relationships, depression, life transitions, stress, substance use, self esteem and body image, parenting, academic performance, and family conflict.

Harmony. When you think of harmony, one might picture different things coming together that work so well simultaneously and you feel a sense of peace. When things aren’t working well together, there is a clash or dissonance, causing more stress and more problems. I came across a video on Instagram from Nedra Glover Tawwab (@nedratawwab) where she talked about the difference between balance and harmony. You see, my ultimate goal in life was to achieve balance when in fact what I was envisioning was harmony. “Harmony is getting things to flow in your life in a cohesive way. Balance is getting everything to be equal."

All relationships are hard, intimate relationships even more so. So many unmet needs, unrecognized wants, can make you feel lost. You just can't keep going like this. The fights are ugly, or they don't happen at all. Living at the speed of life, you have drifted apart and don't know how to bring it back together. Maybe it is just feeling disconnected, maybe it was an affair. You just know that you need help to make it better, what you had dreamed it would be. The good news is that you don't have to do it alone. Tenderness and passion are just around the corner.

My approach is to help my clients look at their "fishbowl": Like fish, we all swim in an environment. It's familiar and we can't always see what it is we're swimming in. When things are murky, it affects the health of the fish. I help clients take a look at what contributes to that murkiness, and I walk with them through changes they want to make so they can have the life they want.

This struggle might arise from chemical dependency, mental health challenges, stage of life transitions, grief/loss, or the patterns that arise from early challenges, such as childhood trauma.

My private psychotherapy practice was built to serve individuals and couples in the San Francisco Bay Area. Through life we are faced with a range of stressors, from natural transitions, to abrupt grief and tragedy. It is a normal part of development to find ourselves faced with overwhelming emotions and at a loss for what to do next. These are the times when a licensed and compassionate clinician can be an asset for creating healing and change. At the heart of my work, I aim to help you turn a season of challenge into an opportunity for character transformation.
