We are all wired to change and grow. But sometimes we get stuck in old patterns and beliefs that keep us from realizing the fullest expression of ourselves. I collaborate with my clients in a safe, non-judgmental environment where we identify these patterns and start developing new ways of experiencing them.

Based on my client's particular needs, I may bring in body awareness, mindfulness, or explore my client's earliest interactions with their primary caregivers. The key to a successful outcome in therapy is the relationship that forms between client and therapist. Together, we co-create new experiences that can be deeply healing and transformative.

I work with adults, couples, and teens for therapy, specializing in anxiety and depression, life transitions, and relationship and cross-cultural issues. Drawing on my 20-year career in marketing for Internet and technology companies including Yahoo! and Apple, I understand the challenges of balancing high-stress work, home, and personal interests.
