Hello, I am a Marriage and Family Therapist who supports my clients in discovering and achieving what they most want in life. As we begin to look more deeply at who we are, we can move toward a life that has increased balance and fulfillment. Many of us suffer in our relationships, careers and internal worlds due to a lack of awareness of the ways in which our past wounds impact current choices and ways of interacting with others. By taking a deeper look at these processes problematic belief systems can begin to change.

Racism, harassment, brutality, microaggressions affect our levels of self-esteem, anxiety and depression. You're feeling shame and embarrassment. You are reeling from the shock, anger and pain and find it difficult to talk to others. You are experiencing trauma, and reliving it in your mind and alone. Telling those who may not understand, often makes it worse. I help and support those who've been affected by inequality of all forms, especially stemming from racism. I provide a safe space where you're heard and validated. Receiving support helped me heal from these experiences, and is crucial. Virtual therapy for CA residents

You: look great on paper, but deep down you're struggling and ashamed to admit it - especially when others have it so much worse. You're sensitive, idealistic, and creative. You're aware of your potential and people reflect it back to you, but you're having trouble finding traction. You're not connecting with your work the way you want to, and your co-working relationships are "fine," but not satisfying in the way you'd like them to be. It feels like something's missing, but you don't know what and you don't know where to find it. Behind the mask, you feel scared, sad, lonely, insecure, anxious, depressed and may be losing hope.

My San Francisco office will launch *virtually* in 2021, in hopes of holding space for clients when safety protocols allow. Sometimes we expect far too much from ourselves. Each client is invited into a space where there is no expectation and where they are free to be themselves, without fear of judgement or misunderstanding. Adults can sometimes struggle to find space to hold compassion for themselves. Couples (and all variants of relationship structure) can also use a nonjudgmental time and space to feel heard, while building tools for communication.

I specialize in helping women recognize & amplify inner resources to recover from trauma, anxiety, and depression while attending to the important relationships in their lives. I inherently operate with a social justice lens, which means that therapy cannot be separated from familial, societal, and religious conditioning we experience as unique beings on this planet. As a mixed-heritage lesbian, I appreciate the ways internalized oppression can show up in our efforts to maintain mental and emotional health.

I’m an advocate for self-compassion. I want to help you calm your inner critic and practice more vulnerability and self-acceptance. Working with high anxiety, high achieving individuals and at times being one myself, I have seen that there is no room to be “good enough”. There is a constant struggle between the desire for perfection and a need for rest. Maybe you’re the strong friend or the person everyone goes to for advice. Do your relationships feel one sided or are you the one who always has to compromise and please others? It’s time to change the narrative. You can control your difficult emotions and negative thoughts.

I find it important to examine the societal context of individual suffering, particularly themes related to oppression and injustice, and tend to be the most well suited for working with sensitive and creative individuals as well as those who struggle with depression, anxiety, self esteem, loss/grief, pregnancy/postpartum and chronic/ terminal illness.
It isn't difficult to feel scared, vulnerable and not good enough in our complex world, let alone if you have a history of being abused or neglected. Therapy can help you slowly make sense of the past so that you can encounter the present moment with more awareness and vigor. I am psychotherapist with an abiding love of the arts and often work with sensitive and creative individuals, many of whom have histories of abuse/neglect and are struggling to make sense of their past and present lives in order to find a greater sense of freedom/comfort within their own skins.

Self Esteem Therapists
Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum. Equally, to lack confidence or lacking confidence is common amongst teens: child self esteem issues can be helped with self esteem support groups in Oakland and therapists' support dealing with self esteem.

If you're looking for help with self esteem in Oakland or for an Oakland self esteem therapist, these professionals provide therapy for self esteem. They include self esteem therapists in Oakland, self esteem psychologists, self esteem psychotherapists and self esteem counselors in Oakland. They can help with counseling for self esteem in Oakland or self esteem counseling and treatment for self esteem.
