About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    I have a warm, playful, and empathic approach. I listen to you and collaborate with you, as I believe you are the expert on your own life and family.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    Rather than try to "fix" symptoms or behavior at the surface level, I help you explore and address the feelings, unmet needs, and wounds/trauma behind the ways you (or your child) act and cope, which helps you move toward deeper healing and change.

  • Together, we will:

    find ways to make things better. I will give you/your child space to process feelings, and help you develop more insight into your/your child's needs and patterns, so we can find a way forward that works better for you/ your child.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    experience anxiety and emotional pain, or are concerned about their child/family. My specialty is helping young kids and families come together and manage change, stress, and challenges. I also help clients find more peace, self-love and connection.

  • I became a therapist because:

    I love helping others heal and get in touch with their inner reserves of strength and joy. I also love hearing people's stories

  • Something that stands out about where I offer therapy is:

    I am endorsed by the state of California as a specialist in providing therapy for children 0-5 and their families.

  • More about me and my practice:

    I am committed to social justice and anti-oppression in my practice. I also am very focused on relationships, early life experiences, and how we are shaped by social structures and historical and family contexts.
