My Approach to Helping
I am passionate about supporting women in their 20s, 30s, and 40s overcome stress and overwhelm caused by life transitions, breakups/relationship issues, anxiety, and depression. Many women today are lacking the support and role models needed to achieve their dreams. Through self-awareness, compassion, and empowerment, therapy can help you find relief from your suffering as well as create a new path for your future. Integrating mindfulness meditation, somatic (body-based) psychotherapy, and practical tools for you to use right away, I will work collaboratively with you to clarify and meet your goals.
More Info About My Practice
I am trained in somatic psychology, a modality of therapy that incorporates the body (including sensations, gestures, movement, breath, etc.) into the therapeutic process. This process uses the body, as well as the heart, soul, spirit, and mind, to more deeply inquire into your own unique self. Somatic therapy is an effective way to quickly and deeply connect with yourself. This allows you to more significantly understand your emotions and behavioral patterns and make changes faster and more long lasting.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
Nearly everyday I leave my office, I am overcome with gratitude for the work I am doing. It is an honor to support women in San Francisco, to guide them to deeper understanding, to assist them in opening their hearts and minds and discover something they did not know before. I am moved by their courage and vulnerability to look inside, to want to be the best version of themselves they can be, no matter what trauma or hardship they experienced in the past. What I love about being a psychotherapist is that there is no right or wrong, that all of this is a beautiful, unfolding process of learning, growing, and changing, and that we as human beings are here to do it together.
