I am a licensed marriage and family therapist specializing in child and family therapy and social skills groups in San Francisco and the East Bay. I provide play-based child therapy, parenting support (with a focus on Hand in Hand Parenting), social skills groups, and school-based support, including in-class coaching/shadowing. I also provide depth-oriented psychotherapy for adults and offer skills to tackle anxiety, depression, and relationship challenges through EFT/tapping, CBT, mindfulness, and exploring challenges in a safe space.

Through a compassionate and understanding relationship I work with your child and family to improve communication skills, increase attachment, and learn how to deal with challenging emotions. As I support your family along the journey, each member has the opportunity to grow as an individual and as a harmonious unit.

My style is warm, inviting, and proactive, honoring both exploration and pointed troubleshooting. My approach to therapy is strongly integrative, including extensive training in modalities such as Floortime, Applied Behavior Analysis, Motivational Interviewing, Play Therapy, Expressive Arts Therapy, Depth Therapy, and Mindfulness.
