My Approach to Helping

I'll work with you to find new ways to view, interact with, and respond to the blocks that appear to be preventing you from living the life you want.

I enjoy working with a wide range of clients, including college students, couples, 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 strengths and challenges 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 and skill in that approach to this work.
