"I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist working in Oakland, CA. I have broad professional experience as a mediator, conflict management consultant, educator, and trainer. I bring the skills I've acquired in these roles to my therapy work. We humans are adaptive beings. When we adopt behaviors and mindsets that do not serve us, we may feel stuck, fearful, or intensely unhappy. Thankfully, we can modify our thinking and behaviors to promote a life of growth, happiness and healthy relationships. I provide skilled support to help repair troubled relationships and re-route unproductive thinking and behavior patterns."

"I have joyfully served children, youth & families, since 1981. I have worked in offices, homeless shelters, treatment centers, schools, group homes, hospitals, and the homes of many families. I truly believe in meeting people where they are. I believe that liberation comes from the relationships we form with people. My main goals in psychotherapy are to witness and appreciate your stories, as well as notice, validate and amplify your strengths, resources and values."

"We all sometimes face a challenge in life that we just can't seem to resolve on our own. It might be a new chapter in your life that brings unexpected trials: adulthood, marriage, parenting, step-parenting, divorce, children leaving home, caring for your aging parents, the loss of a loved one, or facing your own mortality. It might be a conflict in a relationship with a loved one or in your professional life. Or it might be more of an internal struggle, whether recent or long-standing, that is giving rise to anxiety, depression, struggles with food or alcohol, or other self-defeating behaviors."

"In a society that expects us to be constantly producing, connecting, and consuming, it is hard to take stock of the inherent complexities in our everyday lives, whether we are children, teens or adults. I see my role as creating a space for pause, reflection and calibration. I pay attention to themes that emerge from discussions we have, tracing the influences of past experiences to present decisions and emotions, helping to connect interactions in the therapy room to problems that emerge outside the therapy room."

"Are you seeking a space where your authentic self feels seen and understood? Therapy is a holding environment for you to express a range of emotions verbally and non-verbally. I provide an opportunity to do this through consistency and compassion. My passion is working with families, adults, and children and teens by assisting them to tap into their internal & external resources to heal and live more fully. Some of my unique traits people notice are I snort when I laugh and am very engaging :) I encourage people I work with to embrace themselves and develop space for inner kindness."

Using talk, play and art-based interventions, I provide insight-oriented therapy to individuals and families experiencing a variety of distressing emotions and experiences.

"I believe that healing can come from numerous sources, but one of the most powerful is through interpersonal connections. In my work, I provide a space for vulnerability and understanding that allows these connections to foster change. Therapy is like an objective mirror that reflects thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Through this mirror, you can begin to see a clearer picture of yourself, so much so, that eventually you can carry that image outside of the therapy room and be happy and confident in what you see. I believe to have this image, you must strengthen yourself and the relationships that are in it."

It's difficult when there has been so much love, to find yourselves at times in incredibly painful arguments. These reactions can go beyond rational thought to the physiological level, and even impact your health. Relationships make life meaningful and can be deeply rewarding.
