About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    grounded, introspective, humorous, and warm. together, we navigate the conscious and unconscious realms to understand the root of your struggles.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    while my approach is grounded in psychodynamic theory, ultimately our work together is guided by your goals and intentions. as relevant, i like to weave in other modalities, such as jungian dreamwork, expressive arts, and the enneagram to name a few.

  • Together, we will:

    figure out why you're getting in your own way. sabotaging your desires so that everyone else feels comfortable. we'll work on the practical, such as boundaries (the ultimate self-care) and uncover what's underneath--the dreams, aspirations, & Self.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    find themselves pulled in a million directions, often putting others before oneself. all of your parts are welcome here--the perfectionist, the people-pleaser...together we can better understand these parts and find relief from the overwhelm.

  • More about me and my practice:

    I'm currently seeing clients in-person at my office in San Francisco (Cow Hollow) or virtually throughout California. Some clients choose a hybrid option of both in-person and virtual.
