About

I'm an integrative psychotherapist working with individuals and couples. My approach is engaged and caring, providing a safe and supportive environment, where you can reflect and develop new ways of handling challenges you are facing. The focus of my practice is twofold: relationship issues and life transitions (e.g. themes like change in relationship, career changes, relocation, pregnancy, child birth and parenting, facing illness, trauma and loss as well as seeking more meaning and fulfillment in life). I have a particular expertise in working with people who immigrated to the US or have diverse cultural backgrounds.
Combining psychotherapy, neuroscience and Eastern wisdom traditions, I help you create balance, insight and well-being. I draw from 20+ years of meditation background as well extensive training in traditional and current psychotherapy (e.g. Jungian Depth Psychology, Gestalt, Sensorimotor, Hakomi, Family Constellations, EFT, Biofeedback, CBT, EMDR).
Besides my practice, I am core faculty at California Institute of Integral Studies, where I offer courses in depth psychology and counseling skills. I previously taught at UCSF School of Medicine and founded and directed a program for Mindful Caregiving and Resiliency for physicians, nurses and other caregivers at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital.
