I see people as having rich, complex human emotions that are not well described with overly simple and often stigmatizing diagnostic labels like depression or generalized anxiety. Each person is entirely unique, with their own history, strengths, and challenges. In therapy, I will work with you to better understand yourself. When we can understand why you might be feeling or thinking or acting in a way that is not best for you, we can work together to change it in a way that is tailored to your needs and your circumstances.

Welcome to my practice profile. My experience includes work in residential settings with teens and kids who had severe behavioral needs as well as case management at a homeless shelter. 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 with a focus on depth therapy. Currently, as a post-doctoral fellow, I split time between this practice and a therapy clinic. My patients connect strongly because I am a sincere, competent, and supportive therapist with my patients' best interests at heart.
