About

My approach balances compassion with being direct. My clients experience care, acceptance and belonging, while also feeling challenged the right amount to grow, change and decrease suffering. I offer empathy while actively engaging my clients by setting weekly treatment goals, building coping tools/resources, and providing skills/knowledge to build self-awareness and integration. We are deeply influenced by our cultural identity and heritage. I am committed to the values of respecting and celebrating diversity, and supporting social/political policies of equal rights and opportunities.
My areas of Speciality Include: Relationship Difficulties; Complex Trauma; Depression/Mood Disorders/Anxiety; ADHD; Life Transitions; Alcohol/Substance Abuse Treatment; Grief and Loss; Behavioral Problems in Children; and Parenting/Caregiver Support;. I offer In-Person sessions, Teletherapy, as well as “Talk and Walk” therapy.
For over 20 years I have guided clients to access their internal strengths and resources in a variety of settings including- nonprofit; residential; community mental health; alcohol/substance abuse treatment; as an instructor in the Clinical and School Psychology Master’s program at San Francisco State University, and currently in my Private Practice.
