My goal is to help you think out of the box, believe in new possibilities and feel more joy and aliveness, even as you move through the most difficult of times.
You and your specific needs are what will drive our direction, along with my very keen intuition, empathy and down to earth directness!
Life can be seen as a mirror, reflecting back to us exactly what we may need to learn or grow from. How we interpret our lives( our stories) is what typically gets reflected back to us. I help you to envision the life you want, the way you want to feel and to create it. My approach is to partner with you, encouraging you to move through difficulty with an open mind and heart for the lessons that are surely there.
I take a holistic approach and help you to become more aware of how you feel in your body, as we often hold on to stuck energy and pain without the awareness to heal it. The option for my Soul Inspired movement sessions may be just what you need to heal any stuck places in the body. It's also freeing, empowering and can increase your sense of overall equanimity.

Besides working indoors, I also bring in the option of Walk and Talk sessions, where we walk in nature along with stopping intermittently as desired. I work all over the SF Bay Area, and love to share the many beautiful walking spots I've discovered. Walking forward can help spur new ways of thinking, increases positive endorphins, lessens stress and has proven healing results. There is also a fitness option--Please check out more details at

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

Healing of the Inner-Critic
Managing depression/anxiety with self-care focus, self-love, connecting to passion and purpose
Women's Empowerment
Freeing up creativity and getting unstuck

What I love about being a therapist is the partnering and guiding of clients back home to their true selves. It is a gift to witness growth in mind, body and spirit. I love that I get to share the many life changing lessons I've learned on my own journey, in a way that is helpful to others. Life is a process and a path, and I'm thrilled to witness so many special souls courageous enough to embark fully on this path called life!
