The decision to begin therapy is not simple and often comes at a particularly challenging time in your life. I know how difficult it can be to reach out during these times and my goal is to respond with curiosity, open-mindedness, and empathy. I believe that lasting change can come from exploring and ultimately freeing ourselves from the underlying causes of current symptoms. I want to work together with you to find ways to gain insight and relief. I work in an open and transparent manner, to help answer any questions or concerns you have along the way.

I provide confidential and non-judgmental consultations, referrals, and professional psychotherapy to individuals, couples, and groups; deliver substance ab/use assessment and treatment; and address a broad range of client concerns and multiple diagnoses including: anxiety, depression, isolation, stress, grief, and creative/spiritual blocks.
I believe that the therapy process is a practice of paying attention to what is actually happening - it sounds simple, but this is actually a deeply profound and challenging stance to maintain towards life. The work we do in therapy involves bringing elements of our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, how we relate to ourselves and to others, and how we move through the world, from the darkness of the unconscious into the light of consciousness where we can take a look at them. We do not have to struggle and toil in order to implement change in our lives.

I work with women's issues such as (in)fertility/IVF as well as general anger, grief, anxiety, shame, depression, and unraveling unhelpful social expectations.
Life is complex. We go through iterations of ourselves; it's a healthy part of being human. My job is not to judge you but to make space for your next iteration. In our lifetimes we get to be messy and beautiful; kind and mean; complicated and simple. We get to change. That doesn't mean it's easy. I'm a straight shooter who will tell it like I see it and challenge you compassionately when necessary. You're not "too much" for me. I see your challenges as coping skills that are no longer working rather than deficiencies. I'm client focused and I allow you to set the pace, flow, and tone. I meet you where you are.

We encounter many transitions in our lives. Transitions often come with intense life events such as moving to a new country, going through a divorce or losing a loved one. They also come at different stages of life like being an adolescent or growing older. We can feel depressed, anxious, frustrated and lost. I believe transitions provide an opportunity to re-examine ourselves and explore life’s meaning. Together we address issues of identity, interpersonal relationships, grief & loss, loneliness, immigration, and aging.

Grief Therapists
Grief is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.

If you're looking for a San Francisco grief therapist, these professionals provide grief therapy and counseling in San Francisco.
