Accepting Clients

I help people who long to feel authentic but fear living an authentic life. I am a Certified Internal Family Systems and HSP Therapist.

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in San Francisco, CA


About My Clients

My clients are burnt out from seeking external validation, people pleasing and avoiding conflict. They question how they should feel or are overwhelmed when they do feel and have likely been told somewhere along the way that they are ‘too much’ or ‘too sensitive.’ They desire relief from uncertainty, anxiety and a sense of aloneness but the tools they have aren’t providing sustainable change.

My Background and Approach

In our work together, you will gain insight, increased self-compassion and a greater sense of internal connection. My hope for my clients is that they may know themselves in a way that fosters a sense of empowerment, compassion, grace and choice. As a Certified IFS Therapist, I use Internal Family Systems therapy personally and with my clients to facilitate growth and connection. Over the past 10 years I have helped clients gain a greater sense of internal knowing and calm, exploring beliefs they hold about themselves, their relationships and the world around them and understanding the way in which the systems that they are a part of have shaped their sense of identity. I also work with those that identify as ‘highly sensitive people’ or HSPs, who may experience emotion with an increased intensity and are often deep thinkers and feelers. I am licensed in California as a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (#7840) and in Wisconsin as a Licensed Professional Counselor (#7244-125).

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I personally know the exhaustion and confusion that can come from trying to embrace and advocate yourself while also being bombarded with messages from different people/environments/systems on how you should think/look/be/act. It takes a toll. For that reason I offer my clients guidance within a safe space for exploration, free of labels and judgment, and a collaborative approach which reaffirms them as the authority in their own lives. If you feel ready to engage with yourself and your world in a new way, I am here to help facilitate that process of discovery. Reach out to schedule a free 15 minute consultation.
