"Successful therapy means developing the capacity for the full range of feelings which we experience daily. My role is to help you to respond rather than react from an emotionally charged place. I support you in adding meaning and depth to your life while accomplishing your chosen goals. Somatic and trauma focused therapies and my warm, flexible, interactive approach augment our collaboration. You determine the pace of our work as I keep in mind your uniqueness and need for safety. When a problem solving approach is needed, I offer tools to combat anxiety and navigate through life's hardships."

"Trying to make sense of your life and begin a process of change can feel challenging. I believe that therapy is a place to feel safe, share your experiences, and explore new and meaningful ways of being. My intention is to listen and create a safe space free of judgement as I guide you on a journey that fosters awareness of your feelings, thoughts, beliefs and behavioral patterns. My clients seek growth and transformation through understanding life's challenges. Together we will create space to process a range of loss: death, relationships, life transitions, job loss, moving, loss of faith, loss of trust, loss of health and more."

"We have soul work to do together. Let's get started. It is discouraging to navigate a world that doesn’t see you, that misunderstands you or makes you invisible based on your gender, race, sexuality, size, trauma history and a host of other factors. Systemic oppression impacts your mental health as much your history does. It can be intimidating to reach out to a therapist because you want to find someone who really understands you. Mental health has a history of victim-blaming and pathologizing. You won't find that here. I offer trauma-informed therapy for individuals and couples in an intersectional feminist lens."

"Welcome, My experience includes work in residential settings with teens and kids who had severe behavioral needs and case management at a homeless shelter before starting graduate school. While earning my doctorate from the Wright Institute in Berkely CA, I trained for 5 years in different community mental health clinics around the bay area. Currently, as a post-doc, I split time between this practice and a therapy clinic as a child and family therapist. My patients connect strongly because I am a supportive competent and caring therapist with my patients' best interests at heart."
