Many women have huge struggles with establishing breastfeeding.
I believe that finding a great match between therapist and client is imperative.I am happy to help you find that match if for some reason it is not with me. I offer a sliding scale.I provide a warm, non-judgmental environment. I am not a therapist who will stare at you in silence. I am challenging and direct. I specialize in working with pregnant and postpartum women. Making the transition to motherhood is huge. I try to be available for home visits for new moms. I am also a lactation counselor.

As a therapist with experience in workplace dynamics and relationships, I appreciate the unique dilemmas and pressures that women face today.
In the fast-paced, hyper-competitive Bay Area, it can be challenging to balance all of the roles that we assume. Work, school, money, technology, and relationship stressors can leave us feeling depleted. Anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and career dissatisfaction are some of the ways stressors may manifest. My aim is to support and help to empower you to improve your life by engaging in the life that you want to lead. This may result in increased effectiveness, happiness, and reduced suffering in all of your roles.

Welcome to my practice! My adult psychotherapy practice focuses on women's mental health, with an eye towards the multiple, and often competing, roles that we navigate throughout a lifetime. Making sense of personal identity within these roles can often fall by the wayside, impacting both emotional and physical well-being. I treat a number of challenges that women might face including anxiety and depression, relationship and career challenges, reproductive trauma, PTSD and racial & cultural identity.

As a mixed-race woman, I have lived with both dominant and minority culture experiences.
Life can be complicated and confusing. Making room for joy, for satisfaction – for even a deep breath – can get pushed aside amid the demands of family, school, work, and the flood of world news. You may be struggling with newness, such as new parenthood or going away to college, or the loss of a loved one or a long-term way of living. You may have experienced a traumatic event, or be concerned with emotional eating. Or maybe you just feel that something isn’t quite right, even though your life looks fine on the surface. For teens especially, today’s world can feel chaotic, where they must hide the person they feel themselves to be.

My practice is woman centered.
Life brings us so many transitions upending our daily lives and causing us to question everything we thought we always knew. Transition means CHANGE and sometimes change is hard. However you deal with change: rolling with it, fighting it, or ignoring it completely, you are still experiencing both an ending and a beginning, a loss and the unknown. For women in particular, life transitions especially ones that are part of the natural aging process, are tied to physical changes in our bodies that greatly impact our views of our selves. Navigating this amidst societal beliefs about women that don't reflect our needs is challenging.

I provide a nonjudgmental, safe and supportive space for you to explore stuck and challenging relationships, alter unproductive thoughts and behavior patterns, and navigate transitions in your life.

I see therapy as an opportunity for self discovery, healing and a safe space to move towards our growing edges. My approach is mindfulness based and collaborative. Together we can explore the narratives and relational patterns that may be getting in the way of our personal growth or intimacy with other. Through a somatic approach (integration of mind-heart-body), we arrive into a more empowered and embodied sense of being.

I have worked extensively with women with cancer, and people going through divorce, retirement, death of a partner, and most of life's various provocations which cause pain to the soul, all "traumas" in their own right.
I consider it a privilege to work with you to explore aspects of your life experience which have diminished your satisfaction with life or otherwise left you feeling lost or alone. Challenges around loss, aging, illness, trauma or relationships can feel too frightening to tackle alone. As a seasoned and compassionate psychotherapist, I can help you bear and work with what may feel unbearable. Together, we will create a protected space that fosters the trust, aliveness and self-expression that are essential to growth and success in love and work, where you can ultimately reclaim your life and joie-de-vivre.
