Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist specializing in Pediatric and Adolescent Psychotherapy. Families come to me when a physician, school teacher, friend or counselor recommends psychotherapy for a variety of reasons. Many parents have read books and web sites looking for answers and feel exhausted. This can be frustrating, although it is a motivating starting place. I am familiar working with families with a range of issues including behavioral, social, emotional and family dynamics. My approach is to work with families and their children collaborating in a safe non-judgemental environment to make lasting, meaningful and positive changes. There are a variety of helpful counseling tools depending on your child's age. I use play therapy, talk therapy and motivational interviewing techniques which build on my primarily psychodynamic orientation.
I graduated from UC Davis with a BA in Psychology, SF State with an MFT in Clinical Psychology and completed CE with the American Academy of Pediatrics. I have experience as a school counselor at both San Francisco Day School and Fusion Academy and continue to offer training and consultation to private schools in the Bay Area. I also served on the board of Haight Ashbury Psychological services. In private practice I help clients understand their behavior, gain insight, and feel more aware and confident. I am direct and provide actionable feedback while maintaining an empathic and warm space. I treat every family with compassion and respect and feel honored to help kids get back on track.
