My Approach to Helping

Are you finding yourself stuck in your relationships? Have you been told you're too needy or co-dependent? Are you struggling with anxiety, feelings of hopelessness, or low self-esteem? Do you struggle with feeling worthy? Through self-awareness, compassion, and empowerment, therapy can help you find relief from your suffering and create a new path for your future. Together, we'll use tools like mindfulness, somatic (body-based) techniques, and practical support like education and empowerment to help you overcome your challenges. I will work collaboratively with you to understand your goals for therapy and support you with tools to move beyond the patterns that keep you feeling stuck. I am passionate about supporting women in their 20s, 30s, and 40s overcome stress and overwhelm caused by life transitions, relationship issues, anxiety, and depression.

More Info About My Practice

I use both talk therapy and somatic techniques during sessions. Somatic psychotherapy is a holistic modality of therapy that incorporates the body (including sensations, gestures, movement, breath, etc.) into the therapeutic process. This process uses body awareness, as well as the heart, soul, spirit, and mind, to more deeply connect with yourself, understand your patterns, and empower you to move towards positive change. Somatic psychotherapy is an effective way to quickly understand something about yourself that may have taken multiple session with just talking alone. 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

I am filled 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.
