Being a therapist is one of the greatest joys in my life. It allows me the opportunity to encourage and witness the human growth process in a profound and personal way. More and more research shows that modern day distress is caused by isolation and disconnection, which many of us feel even in relationships. We are social creatures who thrive when we feel connected to one another, and especially to those who matter the most to us. The work and goal of therapy is to explore and strengthen our connections, whether it be with ourselves, our partners, our families, or our connections with people generally.  We all need help navigating through the rough or unexplored waters that prevent us from fulling connecting. By creating a safe space and being your trusted other, I can help you find your way through.

I come to this work with a wealth of experience working with preschool-aged children, teens, adults, and couples. I am grateful to have had exposure to human beings at all stages of the life cycle because the work in each of those stages informs the others. After all, those young parts of us are still there, and they show up in our adulthood in sometimes unknown and unexpected ways.  

I also have had the privilege of working in very different therapeutic contexts, including: Edgewood Center for Children and Families, Kaiser Permanente, Golden Gate Integral Counseling (a Transpersonal Counseling Center), and the Marina Counseling Center. I am also currently in the process of becoming certified in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), an evidence-based therapy that research shows is effective in helping couples back into loving relationship with each other. 

With my experience, I offer a warm and intuitive therapeutic approach that is supportive and direct to encourage thought and growth.  I also consider myself a staunch ally to all who have been "othered" by society, whether it because of race, class, gender expression, culture, able-ism, sexuality, or otherwise. It matters to me that everyone feels safe in this world, and I welcome everyone to a safe place in my practice. 

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to getting to know you and beginning our work together!
