I see adults with challenging childhoods and couples who want to communicate better. Sub specialities are sexuality and multiethnicity.
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in San Francisco, CA
Partnership is a state of becoming. We choose an identity when we choose our partner. Along with joyful moments of care and shared values, bad habits in relating to one another and repetitive struggles will get in our way. I stay engaged with couples and help them figure out new ways of knowing themselves and each other better. I guide both partners to see the larger dance they're in as part of a desire to get their needs met, even when they step on each other's toes.
I love working with multiethnic/multicultural clients. Examples of that are mixed race or ethnicity, people of color, women of color, and second generation immigrants. Containing multiple identities means holding multiple truths within. I bring my clients' personal stories as valuable to the work, and I connect from my own lived experience.
