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.

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.

If you're here, something in your life is causing emotional discomfort--and some part of you senses an invitation to explore your inner and relational worlds with understanding and compassion. I help adults and adolescents deal with obstacles to their preferred lives--unwanted symptoms, relationship challenges, difficulty adjusting to change and loss. My goal is to reinforce your strengths, while co-discovering with you new solutions to the issues blocking growth.

I treat alcohol, drug, and eating problems, depression, dual-diagnosis, anxiety, trauma, bariatric surgery patients, and relationship issues. Adults and teenagers address how the use of substances, alcohol, drugs, food, impacts their lives in negative and unproductive ways. We seek solutions together to more satisfying lifestyles and relationships. I work with couples and individuals having difficulties in relationships, wanting to resolve problems rather than separating or divorcing as the only solution. I work to separate past hurts from present reality. As an Equine Specialist, I use horses and exotic animals as requested.

I am enthusiastic, I feel deeply, and I believe in the power of humor - these are core to who I am as a person and core to who I am as a therapist. Many people come to me experiencing anxiety, depression, and shame - I help people move beyond these and feel less alone. Life is messy - I help people through the messiness. I work with adolescents/teens, adults feeling stuck, people across the gender and sexuality spectrums, and white people seeking to support anti-racism through self-examination of their experience of whiteness.

Therapy is a collaborative relationship, as individual as the people in the room. Often the work involves slowing down and creating a secure space for being open, curious and able to revisit and make sense of thoughts, memories and feelings that give rise to present difficulties. I'm especially attentive to your higher powers of perception and positive self determination. Together we resolve present-day problems with roots in the past, changing patterns that produce familiar and unwanted results so you are freer to choose the life you want.
