My Approach to Helping
Since 2012, I have been practicing talk therapy with people roughly 12 to 90 years old and since 2015, I have seen most of my clients individually. I work with teens and adults who struggle with depression, anxiety, different levels of trauma, low self-esteem, compulsive behavior, attentional issues, identity development or (most often) some combination of these. I appreciate the opportunity to work with people representing a wide, intersectional range of identities and cultures.
My training as a therapist began at Thunder Road in Oakland, where I worked for two years with the families of dual-diagnosed adolescents, separately as well as in multi-family groups. During my subsequent training at The Psychotherapy Institute in Berkeley, I learned to work psychodynamically with teens, adults and couples. Since 2018 I have maintained a private practice working with individuals, families and couples, as well as occasional small groups, in person and via tele-health.
