I believe that the authentic client-therapist relationship and our innate ability to heal are forceful powers for change. I would like our work to feel meaningful to you. We will work together to come to new understandings about your emotions, behaviors and experiences. The goal is to make changes in your unhelpful behaviors, to make peace through acceptance, and to gain insight into your personal system of meaning by looking compassionately at your relationship to self, body, food and community. Authenticity is being at home in your body which allows you to express yourself clearly; authenticity is linked to happiness.

My therapeutic style is integrative, drawing from modalities that are appropriate to each individual. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is based on the concept that our distorted thoughts lead to difficult feelings that lead to self-defeating behaviors. I teach my clients mindfulness skills to become more comfortable in their bodies and present in their lives.

With over 11 years of experience working in the SF community, I have had the privilege to be able to help a wide variety of clients reach their goals and improve their quality of life. My style is a combination of warmth and compassion, as well as direct and clear.
