About

Life guarantees all of us ups and downs- but in our highly individualistic culture, it is common to believe that one ought to be able to handle their own difficulties. In reality, stressful life events,transitions and challenges can become much more manageable with consistent support. Through active listening and reflection,I assist clients in accessing their own intuition about what makes their life feel satisfying. Therapy involves a growing self awareness that often uncovers outdated beliefs and patterns. I truly enjoy guiding clients through this discovery process.This often involves a look at how culture and upbringing influence behavior.
Supporting people make choices that feel joyful is my life's work. Self esteem enhancement,couples counseling and parenting are specialties.My background includes counseling at the San Francisco Art Institute and teaching Psychology at area colleges.
"Think with the whole body" is a Zen saying that captures my view of the innate wisdom of the body/mind. Throughout the years, I have been inspired by how much information is revealed through the body's symptoms.My practice integrates creative expression, bibliotherapy, visualizations and various cultural perspectives.
