About

I've been working as a clinical social worker/therapist for 16 years, with individuals and groups, from youth through adulthood, in a diverse array of settings, most prominently the health center at El Cerrito High School, where for many years I was the Training Director. I've also worked in jails, SROs, youth centers, camps, a small press, oftentimes offering writing as a vehicle for healing. My calling and gift is to hold sacred, safe spaces for people to be truly seen and known, and from there to support them stepping into their unique and authentic selves. It is my greatest privilege to meet people in this courageous place.
I come to this work from a life-long passion for personal stories, writing, and creative expression. For years, I've been practicing and teaching Narrative Therapy and am deeply informed by its respectful, life-affirming perspectives. Trauma-informed practices, mindfulness, energy, somatics, ceremony + racial/social/restorative justice also inform my work.
My clients share that I bring thoughtfulness, intention, heart, humor, authenticity, and presence to my time with them. I am not afraid of the complex, messy, grief-filled parts of our lives, and can join you in these places with compassion, curiosity, collaboration, and soulfulness. I view therapy as a creative space where you can bring all of yourself.
