I have always wanted to be a part of the healing process.My professional career has always involved helping people though challenging times.
Marriage & Family Therapist in San Francisco, CA
My professional career has always involved helping people navigate systematic and cultural pressures and oppression to better care for themselves. In working with people who have lived with lower incomes and in marginalized positions in society, I quickly became interested in facilitating the healing of trauma (systemic and personal) and the reintegration of a whole and complete self.
By noticing rather than judging our experience we become better able to respond rather than react. In my approach, I attend to reactive patterns and help people slow down and notice what is occurring the body, the mind and emotional space. With compassionate noticing, naming and educating we can develop a language of authenticity and change.
I have been working directly with Eating Disorders and related issues for over 3 years and I find this work to be immensely fulfilling.
