Are you looking for a therapist who is warm and supportive? Do you want to feel truly heard? Are you interested in exploring how childhood experiences have influenced your present life? Are you struggling with an unhealthy relationship or with high anxiety? You might be nervous to start therapy, so finding a therapist who will collaborate with you is important. I will focus on your strengths to help you heal and grow, while providing you with tools and safe place to explore. I believe the relationship between the therapist and client offers opportunities for healing and transformation.

I specialize in working with clients around issues of domestic violence, and also focus on reproductive and maternal health, anxiety, adolescent challenges, and recovery from trauma. I offer short-term and long-term therapy and will collaborate with you to determine the course of our work together.

I like to bring in elements of mindfulness-based methods (such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), skill development (such as CBT) and non-verbal approaches (such as art). I provide therapy at Community Well, a space for holistic wellness services, in the Excelsior district of San Francisco (www.communitywellsf.com).
