I believe that healing happens best in a relationship, and that sharing ourselves and being seen has an immensely positive therapeutic impact. My intention is to create a safe space for you to be completely yourself and to explore the issues that are important in your life, with the goal of increasing self-awareness, healing old wounds or misunderstandings about yourself, and creating a more positive and fulfilling future.
Some healing moves quickly while some takes more time, and I help clients by reflecting being by their side, reflecting progress, encouraging growth, and accepting what cannot be changed. My approach to healing is grounded in a deep belief that hard times are made easier when we know we are not alone in them.

More Info About My Practice
I offer Skype and phone sessions as well as appointments in my Oakland office. I am in network for CA Victims of Violent Crimes and provide receipts for clients who wish to be reimbursed by their insurance companies.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
The bulk of my training and experience has been with complex trauma, meaning that difficult life experiences pile up and make mood, attention, relationships, and school or work function challenging. As a result of the complexity of my past work, I am able to help clients with multiple issues, as well as those who deal with challenges in one or two of these areas. My understanding of trauma and interpersonal communications feeds my practice and offers a unique and useful perspective to clients looking to increase self-awareness.
What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
Some people say, to me "being a trauma therapist must be heavy." At times of course, it can be, but the challenges we face are a reality of life, and truth does not do well when ignored. What I love about being a therapist is that I get to witness and participate in people's healing -- people leave my office feeling better, and each person's individual healing benefits the community at large. I love being a psychotherapist because I am consistently reminded of the resilience of the human spirit.
