If we work together I will listen to you carefully and give sensitive feedback in a timely manner so you can be back in control of your life as soon as possible. Change is always possible if you will work for it.

My Background and Approach

My specialties include helping people experiencing anxiety, stress and depression, especially as they relate to relationships with loved ones, one's career and family. I am have been a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist for 18 years. I have an additional master's degree in Rehabilition counseling from SFSU , as well as a certification in alcohol and drug studies from UC Berkeley extension. I frequently use cognitive behavioral, family systems and psychodynamic therapy in my work.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that the motivation to make positive changes is often tied to those who touch us deeply. The capacity to connect with others and internally with ourselves naturally leads to changes that would otherwise seem impossible. Growing up I felt alienated and left home as soon as I could. It took multiple adversities to bring me to a point of reaching out to people who I hoped could help me. I was truly surprised and relieved when therapy actually worked. Since then, I have created non-profit organizations to support LGBTQ families, such as Ourfamilycoalition.org as well as becoming a therapist myself. I have been a parent, served on different Boards and developed a spiritual side that celebrates life in all its variety. I love working with people in the therapeutic setting, and have always been grateful to be able to do this sacred work.
