From the outside-it might look like you have everything together. However, you can't stop thinking about food and your body. Your life is starting to revolve around planning binges and purges, restricting, compulsive exercise and/or body image distress. Or, perhaps you are becoming consumed with intrusive, dark, scary, weird thoughts that trigger anxiety. Thoughts that won't seem to leave you alone and feel too embarrassing to tell others about. You might feel unsure of reaching out for help, but deep down you know something needs to change. Whether you are struggling with an eating disorder, anxiety, trauma or OCD- I can help!

Courage, dear heart, as life will present you with surprises and in time, you will manage each one with bravery. Our families can push our boundaries; our relationships can challenge us; and our careers can stretch us so thin. Negative self-thoughts can keep us in our heads and repeating old patterns can feel like a roller coaster of emotions. Past traumas can intrude our present; social injustices can break our community down; and gender and cultural inequalities can be an exhausting battle. Our self-care can plummet and suddenly we are not our first priority. However, you are leaning in today and making an investment in YOU!

I provide tele therapy for individuals, and couples for CA residents. I do not have a physical office in CA. I also offer treatment for trauma. In today's world we are all finding that after working full time there isn't enough time to eat right, exercise, take care of errands, help the children with homework, and spend quality time with your significant relationships. What we end up with is exhaustion, feeling "burned out", anxious, and maybe even depressed. You are not alone. Don't suffer any longer. It's time to address your issues and get your life back.

I also have significant experience in working with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender clients and their families on a variety of issues including coming out, building identity, strengthening intimate relationships and finding community.
I work with adults--both individuals and couples in the areas of relationships, substance and sex addiction, mood disorders (anxiety and depression) and life transitions (divorce, empty nest, retirement). Relationships with others (partner, boss, siblings, friends, clients) are a central source of meaning and sometimes difficulty for us. I can work with you around relationship issues, including commitment, communication, sexuality, infidelity and healthy conflict.

**Openings on Mondays & Tuesdays.** Do negative thoughts interfere with your self-esteem? relationships? moods? I can help. I specialize in helping women recognize & amplify inner resources to recover from trauma, anxiety, and depression while attending to the important relationships in their lives. I inherently operate with a social justice lens, which means that therapy cannot be separated from familial, societal, and religious conditioning we experience as unique beings on this planet. As a mixed-heritage lesbian, I appreciate the ways internalized oppression can show up in our efforts to maintain mental and emotional health.

Gay and lesbian affirmative and culturally sensitive, I help locate the problem and its effects, and uncover hidden examples of resilience and success.
Choosing a couples therapist is no easy task, but it is important to find someone who actually is trained in this work. Relationships are the core of society and our lives, and yet we are never taught about the basics of communication: talking and listening. My work with couples AND individuals centers on learning how to talk about and listen to feelings, in order to build empathy and connection. Learn what works and how to get closer to those you care about (including yourself!).
