"I want to assist you in examining why you feel like your life is not where you think or sense it should be. Why you have a nagging feeling that perhaps you're wasting time and not living your life in a more deep and fulfilling manner. You may think you're “not good enough,” or “if only this would have/not have happened," life would be different. The activities you do feel banal, going to work/school is dreadful, relationships and family are difficult, and the values and beliefs that once held you have lost their ground. You feel lonely, depressed, anxious, and perhaps substance use is worsening. You’re wondering about doing therapy."

"Just as the words of a poem can open our eyes, minds and hearts in ways language otherwise might not be able to, I believe that psychotherapy is a creative process that utilizes language to access psychic terrain that's often inaccessible in our everyday lives. Accessing and exploring this internal terrain in therapy can be both enlightening and transformative."

"We live in a culture that tells us the type of person we need to be. Sometimes these messages start at home as children, but often continue as we grow up. It can be hard to clear away what we've been told and internalized from our own true nature and who we are destined to become. Parts of us have been left behind; authentic selves concealed but not forgotten. I help people to find their voice and claim it as their own. Some for the first time and others in a renewed manner, after they have lost their way."

"Therapy is something I truly believe we all can benefit from at some point and time in our lives. It is a place and space where we can unload all that we carry day-to-day, whether it be work and family stressors to past traumas. In learning to be vulnerable, we get the opportunity to explore who we truly are and what we might want or need for ourselves. It is my ultimate goal to provide a safe, warm, and non-judgmental space to allow for this kind of vulnerability and exploration. My work has focused on children and family relationships, attachment, trauma, addiction, immigration, impact of stress, and much more. "

"Most of us lug around a suitcase full of our thoughts, feelings, family history and past experiences and have no idea what's in there. Our current responses to and experience of life come from the contents of that suitcase. Together in therapy we gently unpack it. We will see what is working for you, what needs more support and what has served it's purpose but no longer works. I work collaboratively and am curious about all the things that make you who you are. I am particularly interested in working with people who feel misunderstood or unimportant."

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.
