My Approach to Helping

I provide counseling services for adults, teens, children & sometimes families in the San Francisco Bay Area. I work hard to break down the barriers people often feel towards therapy by using relatable language, humor, casual rapport, customized packages, videophone sessions, parent coaching & even home visits for kids or families. I make sure you feel safe & supported.

By including humor & other non-traditional approaches in my work, I am a good fit for those looking for someone who is not very 'therapist' like but still has all the experience, therapeutic skills & insight to help create positive change. I am often able to connect with children & adults that have previously not enjoyed or benefited from counseling. I am primarily a relational therapist, meaning that I hold the relationship between you & I as the most important aspect of therapy. In session I offer a warm & inviting space to safely discuss struggles, fears or future hopes. I truly believe there is nothing too severe, too dark, too weird or too hard to talk about & I am deeply committed to creating a non-judgmental space where all topics are open for exploration. So whether you are looking for some brief Solution Focused help or some gentle inquiry, you get to decide how work together. I have a real passion for Neurobiology & educating others on all the ways we are 'wired' & all the ways that we can ‘rewire’ ourselves with the help of Mindfulness & Self Compassion. I incorporate a lot of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Emotionally Focussed Therapy & more, along with a variety of Expressive Arts if you are so inclined.

I believe that sharing one's story with is the first step towards creating meaningful & lasting change. In therapy, I respect you & your story first & foremost, & endeavor to listen thoughtfully while supporting your experience. I see therapy as an opportunity to work with people to make sense of situations, help articulate feelings, develop new skills, coping mechanisms, create healthier relationships & improve general well-being. I am committed to the well-being of all my clients, often going above & beyond to address their needs or advocate for them. I truly care & am forever curious about people.
