"Each client walks through my door with their own struggle. And although each person comes with their own unique story, the one thing that clients do share is a search for a more fulfilled life or a greater sense of self. I support clients as they navigate life's harder transitions - a loss of a relationship, the transition to becoming a parent, a job transition, or simply figuring out who they truly are and want to be. We work together to notice and shift your inner critic that so frequently gets in the way. Additionally, I support couples as they work through the challenges and desires that come with a relationship. "

Old methods of coping just aren't working anymore or are making things worse. There is hope. Psychotherapy can provide meaningful insights into established behaviors and thought processes.

"Therapy is something I truly believe we all can benefit from at some point and time in our lives. It is a place and space where we can unload all that we carry day-to-day, whether it be work and family stressors to past traumas. In learning to be vulnerable, we get the opportunity to explore who we truly are and what we might want or need for ourselves. It is my ultimate goal to provide a safe, warm, and non-judgmental space to allow for this kind of vulnerability and exploration. My work has focused on children and family relationships, attachment, trauma, addiction, immigration, impact of stress, and much more. "

Narrative Therapists
Narrative Therapy uses the client's storytelling to indicate the way they construct meaning in their lives, rather than focusing on how they communicate their problem behaviors. San Francisco Narrative Therapy embraces the idea that stories actually shape our behaviors and our lives and that we become the stories we tell about ourselves. There are helpful narratives we can choose to embrace as well as unhelpful ones. Although it may sound obvious, the power of storytelling is to elevate the client--who is the authority of their narrative--rather than the therapist, as expert. Check these therapists for find Narrative Therapy in San Francisco.
