My Approach to Helping

I use a relational psychoanalytic approach, integrating threads of Gestalt and Art therapies.

I enjoy working with people navigating grief, depression, anxiety, and stress-related to life transitions.

I have a master's in psychology from CIIS in San Francisco, CA, and am a Fellowship Year Graduate from the Palo Alto Psychoanalytical Psychotherapy Training Program. I am now in their Two-Year certificate Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Program at Stanford University.

More Info About My Practice

I work with children, adolescents, and adults.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

Typically, I work with people once or twice weekly, depending on the presenting issues. For some, meeting once every other week is an option as well. This is something we can work out together!
