My Approach to Helping

My aim is to help people deepen their understanding of themselves and others, thrive, despite difficult circumstances, and unlock their resilience and creative potential. I offer psychodynamic-psychotherapy that can be playful and imaginative, while also serious in its task to surface the meaning behind challenges, conflicts, and symptoms. Together, we'll work to surface your creativity, your dreams, and imagination to overcome obstacles, heal, and deepen your understanding of your own mind.

This is the first step in your journey toward healing and change—and it's no small feat. I hope that the information I have shared here can be helpful to you as you make your decision. If you are interested in learning more, I find that the best way to see if a therapist could be a good fit is to meet a few times and experience what the work will be like. If that sounds good to you, reach out to schedule an initial, free consultation. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

More Info About My Practice

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, based in Oakland, CA. I provide psychodynamic psychotherapy to individual adults, children (3+), and teens.

People I’ve worked with have shared that I provide a warm and non-judgemental space for them to express their thoughts, feelings, and experiences.

If we work together, you’ll quickly see that I’m interested in learning about your dreams, imagination, creativity, life experiences, and relationships.

I offer weekly psychotherapy or play therapy sessions that are 50-minutes long and can be attended in-person or remotely.

My approach to therapy is informed by my training in psychodynamic psychotherapy, Jungian-oriented therapy, Jungian Sandplay therapy, and non-directive play therapy.

We can begin by scheduling a 20-minute free consultation. I’ll share a little about how I work, ask you a few questions, and see if it feels like a good time to schedule the first appointment.
