My Approach to Helping

Good relationships are crucial to our well-being, success and overall happiness. Whether you're in a relationship that is struggling or you've recently left a bad relationship, I can help you learn and grow through the process. We learn something from every relationship, and sometimes those lessons are tough. Let's change the pattern together. What do you need in order to have the more meaningful, connected relationships that you deserve?

More Info About My Practice

My office is centrally located in the Hayes Valley neighborhood of San Francisco. For insurance purposes, a detailed bill can be provided and you can submit for an out-of-network reimbursement.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I feel passionate about helping you have better relationships in your life. Whether we meet for couples therapy or individual counseling, I will provide a safe, structured and helpful place to make some changes in your life. In addition to working with couples, I feel strongly about helping you manage your substance use, compulsive behavior and anxiety. I'm also experienced at providing LGBTQ Affirmative therapy.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

When choosing a therapist, trust your gut. It has been proven in various studies that the therapeutic relationship is crucial to success in therapy. You should feel comfortable, safe and accepted by the person you're working with. If something isn't working, bring it into the session and talk about it. You're in the driver's seat.
