I am enthusiastic, I feel deeply, and I believe in the power of humor - these are core to who I am as a person and as a therapist.
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in San Francisco, CA
A core focus of my work is supporting adolescents/teens and parents of adolescents/teens. Adolescence is a time filled with immense change and growth. Throughout the course of that growth can often exist encounters with various challenges, obstacles, and difficult experiences that the adolescent must navigate past. I specialize in working with adolescents and their parents because I am passionate about walking alongside them and assisting them in their journey through this meaningful life stage.
"I just don't like myself," "I can't do anything right," "I'm trash," "I am not _____ enough"..... I call these the voices of our Inner Critic. We all have one, and it can sometimes be pretty brutal. I love working with people who want to dive into their Inner Critic - we first explore to gain a clear understanding of where this came from and why its still here, and then we utilize the strategies of self-compassion to shift the narrative.
A core focus of my work is supporting gender and/or sexually diverse adolescents and adults. I meet them wherever they are at on their journey through their own process of coming into their authentic selves, and support them in moving past any obstructions that are interrupting their access to joy and fulfillment.
