About My Clients

I work with individuals and couples including high performing professionals, entrepreneurs, creative artists, architects, designers and sex workers, with a variety of ethnocultural and religious identifications and immigration experiences. Many of my clients are LGBTQ and queer-identified. I specialize in working with non-traditional family forms and am sex-positive in my approach. I am also an HAES therapist.

My Background and Approach

I have deep training in family and couples therapy, contemporary psychoanalytic/psychodynamic approaches, Buddhist psychology, and conflict resolution. My training influences and gives depth to my work, but does not dictate a particular approach. Each client, each session, is unique and I work with attunement to what is most healing, most useful in any given moment.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe suffering is usually an invitation to growth -- we can decline by running to simple solutions and quick fixes, or dare to say yes by opening with courage and curiosity. I believe transformation requires the help of others; alone we can only see what we already know. I believe we all have the right to live a fully engaged life, uniquely defined by each of us. I believe satisfying relationships and human connection are the foundation for lives well lived.

I have experience with the following
  • Buddhism
  • Christianity
  • Hinduism
  • Islam
  • Judaism
  • Interfaith
