It's another day feeling inundated by work and family demands. Working, parenting, and home schooling are three jobs you never thought you would be doing at the same time. Your sweet kid went to bed late last night again and woke up tired and complaining about everything. You worry she might fall behind in school or that she's developing bad habits. Your protectiveness and patience turns to irritation and you tell her to “Just stop!” She stays in her room for most of the day doesn’t say another word to you until dinner. You want what’s best for your kid. It’s confusing not knowing what just happened and why.

I have extensive experience working with adults and children as young as 3. I specialize in helping children other therapists describe as "difficult to treat," including children who are traumatized, emotionally unregulated, physically aggressive, or have difficulty connecting with adults and caregivers. I will work with your child whose needs have not been met in schools or by other therapists. I help children through play, physical movement, games, art, and words. I help overwhelmed parents with sound psychological guidance. I have thirteen years' experience and I teach and train other therapists.

Somatic Experiencing (SE) takes healing to a deeper level. Combined with 'top-down' approaches, SE helps identify strengths and intentions beneath painful survival patterns. Shame, fear and anger transform into vital life energy. Surviving becomes thriving. As a private practice psychotherapist based in SF & Marin, I primarily work with adults, but also love to assist children in the healing process.

Therapy is an opportunity to sit in a nurturing environment where anything can be said with acceptance. The gift of therapy provides a chance to hone your coping skills and bolster your resilience in your own time and at your own pace. In our work together I will meet you where you're at in your healing journey. You will have the opportunity to learn to activate your natural resiliency and self-acceptance to let go of shame, anger, or guilt that may be holding you back.
