Feeling understood, feeling helped, and feeling supported are at the core of psychotherapy. This process also includes developing and enhancing self understanding. Many people contemplate calling a therapist for a long time, unsure of what to expect or how to proceed. Together, we can explore and understand difficult issues in your life and gain a deeper understanding of your situation. Through this process, we can begin to offer you new emotional experiences. In a safe setting with warmth and engagement, I provide an opportunity to gently move through what is bothering you most.

I work with women navigating the path to motherhood, including pregnancy and the postpartum period. I believe our past relationship experiences offer emotional clues that can illuminate current interpersonal patterns, and I help clients uncover this insight in a way that can lead to long-term change. In a fast-paced culture where spoken conversations are beginning to fade away; psychotherapy remains a place where clients can speak their narratives aloud, using psychotherapy as a healing opportunity to have their stories witnessed.

Building a healthy relationship in therapy is not only essential to immediate goals, but is a skill that patients take away for use with on-going problem-solving.

Do you feel stuck? Many people begin psychotherapy because they feel something is "off". They are dissatisfied, but unclear about what they want; they feel that "something is missing," but they're not sure what it is. Others begin psychotherapy because they find themselves repeatedly cycling through unhealthy relationship patterns and they want to change. Additionally, we all have traumas and woundings within us, to varying degrees. Psychotherapy can help untangle these knots and move you through suffering and pain towards greater health, integration, wholeness, vitality, and well-being.

You don't have to do it alone. People often come into therapy when they have hit a crisis in their lives. It can be hard to feel like your usual coping mechanisms are not working anymore, or the situation you are dealing with is more than you can handle. Having a warm, compassionate, supportive, and qualified ally to listen and help with these issues in a safe and confidential space can help you feel less isolated and overwhelmed.

I believe in meeting each individual where they are at any given moment. I believe that healing comes from forgiveness in all forms, and primarily, forgiveness towards ourselves. I work with people by establishing a safe and comforting environment and offer a non-judgmental view towards examining the underlying problems, thoughts, beliefs, or stuck feelings my clients may be holding onto. As a therapist, I believe my best asset, despite any certifications or specializations I may hold, comes from my authenticity, and the appreciation, and admiration I hold for my clients every step of the way.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in San Francisco, 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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in San Francisco are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in San Francisco
