In these times of drastic global change, it is completely natural to feel anxious, fearful, overwhelmed, sad, and stressed. What's most important now is that you feel supported during this time not only by your self care practice, but also by your support team. I would like to be on that support team for you. In my practice, I specialize in working with individuals or couples who are feeling anxious or depressed, individuals dealing with stress and burnout, new and expectant parents, those who are dealing with loss, issues with self worth, and people from dysfunctional family systems.

We are now in a communal health crisis together. It exacerbates feelings of anxiety and depression that we may have, and can make us spin as we try to adjust to Pandemic reality. Many of my clients are parents, people with career questions, immigrants, social justice workers. Many are either coping with a current situational issue that is confusing, overwhelming, or painful, or with a longer term pattern that they would like to change. I work in an engaged manner, hoping to build trust and a collaborative relationship that will allow you to look at old patterns and create new emotional and behavioral options, especially now.

There are so many reasons why people seek out psychotherapy. Maybe you are feeling trapped in a cycle of destructive patterns that are causing great suffering to you or the people around you. These struggles might be a result of: a painful relationship with your body and food, an eating disorder, a history of abuse, trauma or alcoholism in your childhood home or difficulites parenting your child or teenager. You may be seeking help for your child who is having trouble with relationships, school, drugs and alcohol, adhering to family rules or is not feeling strong about who they are as an individual.

I use strength based approaches like: EMDR, Somatic therapy (Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, a mindfulness based talk therapy), and trauma informed Internal Family Systems.
When it's an uphill battle to manage anxiety, low self-worth or impulsive self-sabotaging habits, it’s probably time to get some help. Life doesn't need to feel so hard. I facilitate the wisdom and drive to heal already inside you. It's normal to feel transformation may be out of reach. But I have helped many people thrive. Impulses, emotional overwhelm and habits often get "updated." It's common to feel more ease, self-accepting and empowered to make key changes. I excel at supporting and guiding my clients along their path. Many indicate they feel refreshed, transformed and nourished. Feel free to call. I'd love to tell you more.

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in San Francisco view problems within the family as the result not of particular members' behaviors, but of the family's group dynamic. The family is seen as a complex system having its own language, roles, rules, beliefs, needs and patterns. The therapist helps each individual member understand how their childhood family operated, their role in that system, and how that experience has shaped their role in the current family. Therapists with the MFT credential are usually trained in Family Systems therapy.
