Visit my website to learn more about my practice, easily schedule an appointment online, or send me a message about a particular concern. Whether you're new to therapy or have been in therapy in the past, I will try to make the process go smoothly. Psychotherapy should be a collaborative effort between therapist and client, and I approach each session as an opportunity to learn something new. My style is engaging and interactive, and I help clients achieve their goals through a variety of empirically-validated means.

My specialties include overcoming anxiety/panic, depression, relationships problems, career issues, as well as life transitions. Please email me if you have questions about your particular needs. I am trained in traditional and modern therapies including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), as well as Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples therapy.

My office is conveniently located at the intersection of Market and Sanchez St. The F streetcar stops at this intersection, and my office is one block from the Church Street MUNI station serving the K, L, M, N, and J lines. There's non-metered street parking on Sanchez Street.
