About My Clients

I work with individuals, relationships, and families in the Bay Area, who are seeking collaborative & creative psychotherapy. Do you identify as a survivor, iconoclast, underdog, outsider, punk, or perfectionist? Is there is a part of you that you find shameful, confusing, embarrassing, or too dark to talk about? If so, youʼre in the right place.

My Background and Approach

I draw from many therapeutic orientations and influences, including attachment theory, mindfulness, somatic therapy, and neuroscience. At heart, however, I am gestalt therapist. In a nutshell, this means that I hold dear the principles of curiosity, awareness, inter-dependence, and self-responsibility. I help clients notice what they’re doing, how they’re doing it, and how to reach their goals, while bringing full acceptance to the here and now. I also use a social justice framework which allows us to look at the intersection of your personal history and the greater systems of privilege and oppression that influence who we are.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I'm not your mother's psychotherapist. No offense to the psychoanalytic couch, but I see therapy as dynamic, intense, and often fun space in which deepen our relationship to ourselves and to the world at large.

I have experience with the following
  • Buddhism
  • Christianity
