A fully expressed life emerges when we connect with our innate resilience and become who we are meant to be. We have more energy, feel inspired, connect more deeply, and experience the natural ebb and flow of life with greater ease. Whether you have done psychotherapy before, or are brand new, I am here to help. I offer a beautiful, unique approach to healing, one that brings together teachings from Western psychology and Eastern wisdom traditions. Complete healing comes from mindful awareness of the whole self, and working from a place of embodied connection with our true, genuine essence.

I have over 12 years experience working with adults, children, and adolescents experiencing relationship problems, anxiety and mood concerns, emotional and/or behavioral troubles, trauma and loss, and difficulties with burnout and the compassion fatigue of caring for loved ones with these issues. If you are an adult attempting to work through such difficulties in your life, the partner of someone having these problems, or if you are a parent seeking help for your child, I would welcome a chance to talk with you about how I may help.

As a psychotherapist, I feel it’s an honor to be a witness and facilitator to client transformation, resilience, and growth. I believe my perceptiveness, compassion, and holding of a nonjudgmental space allow discovery and observation of patterns that may no longer be helpful. I see my work through a social justice perspective and understand oppression itself as a form of stress and trauma. As a mixed-race, multicultural woman, I honor experiences of being at different intersections of identity. I can relate to experiences of simultaneously belonging and not belonging in different spaces.

Have you been in several relationships that have ended poorly? Do you wonder why most of the people in your life are never there when you need them to be? Perhaps, you wonder if you can ever be in a happy healthy relationship, because many people in your life seem unreliable, manipulative, and inconsistent. Maybe you are starting to feel as though you may be better off alone because you doubt whether you will be able to connect with people who value you for who you are.

Over 40 years of diverse practice has taught me that when people are in psychotherapy they create ingenious ways to grow, to resolve internal/social conflict and to improve their sense of personal fulfillment. They are innovative and sincere. Therapy is more than a serious, shared introspection. It is also a playful interaction. It usually involves a full range of emotions that includes a sharing of ideas and a mutual exchange, which almost always involves a lively conversation. There seems to be one common theme, namely that each person is seeking to find a sense of truth and well-being.

Life is harder than expected at times. Transitions, loss, trauma, persistent anxiety or depression, or a feeling that things will never change are just a few examples of the ways in which people can feel less hopeful about their lives. Psychotherapy is a tool that can alleviate the stressors of everyday life, improve one's sense of well being and connection with others and enhance one's self understanding. Over time it can also lead to a greater sense of competency and satisfaction in the world.

Psychodynamic therapy in North Oakland, Oakland, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
