My Approach to Helping

From a safe and caring space, I will work with you to find new ways to view, interact with, and respond to the blocks that appear to be preventing you from living your preferred life.

I enjoy working with a wide range of clients, including college students, couples, seniors, and anyone facing major life changes. I have experience working with individuals impacted by anxiety, infidelity, divorce, parenting issues, trauma, addiction, grief and loss, adjustment difficulties, and issues associated with chronic medical conditions. I appreciate individuals whose identity (ethnic, cultural, sexual, gender, or other) places them between two worlds, with all the unique challenges and strengths that this brings.

I approach this work with flexibility, creativity, gratitude, joy, and humility, and I would be honored to assist you on your journey towards healing, growth, and expanded awareness.

More Info About My Practice

In addition to my regular clients, I provide preparation and integration services for individuals and couples who are working with psychedelics entheogens plant medicines, or are considering doing so. I offer support for harm reduction, setting intentions, developing grounding practices, and integrating insights acquired during ceremony. I provide a supportive framework to explore and expand clients' understanding and relationship with transpersonal and visionary experiences.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I bring a wide range of life experiences with me, including working for years in silicon valley as an interface designer for technology companies before making the decision to become a therapist. I love supporting systems in functioning more clearly, smoothly and elegantly--and I bring my joy in that approach to this work.
