Announcement icon As part of the effort to flatten the curve, I am offering video therapy for all clients and pro bono sessions to folks on the frontlines.
People, life, and work are complex. It can be hard to find your way and define who you are. As a therapist, my goal is to foster a space for you to explore what you want for yourself and your life through introspection, healing, and acceptance of self. I offer an interactive style of therapy that emphasizes personal insight and self-compassion in order to identify harmful thought patterns and behaviors. Together, we will find an approach that helps you achieve your goals, whether you’re looking to heal from past experiences or cope with present challenges.
My specialties include depression, trauma, and anxiety and panic, as well as life transitions, imposter syndrome and challenging the inner critic, concerns unique to working in the Bay Area, grief and loss, and LGBTQQIA issues. In addition, I consider it integral to my work to be cognizant of the cultural and societal influences that impact us everyday.
If you’re wondering if you would benefit from therapy, let's chat. I offer a free 30-minute phone consultation. In addition to my two convenient location in San Francisco, I offer video therapy for anyone living in California.
