Licenced Clinical Psychologist, Psy 25119



        I am a San Francisco based psychologist serving both adults and youth with an array of concerns.  I provide individual and couples therapy, as well as group therapy, coaching, assessment, and consulting services. 

My approach integrates a range of treatment methods to best suit your needs as an individual.  Within a collaborative relationship, we work to deepen your self-awareness, inner strength, and cultivate life changes. 

I place an emphasis on authenticity and providing the guidance needed to uncover your own unique aspirations and values.  My priority is to provide a confidential, accepting environment to understand and illuminate your internal world.  I maintain the belief that we all have the potential for life satisfaction, healthy relationships, and personal development, regardless of the challenges we encounter.

Psychotherapy for Adults and Youth

        My clients consist of a diverse array of adults and youth.  I work with clients to enhance life satisfaction, improve the quality of relationships, heal trauma, and develop the coping skills needed to manage distress.   In a safe, confidential, and non-judgmental environment, I provide the framework to address the internal conflict that may be keeping you from living the life you aspire toward.
        I aim to support the unfolding of your authentic self and to inspire your personal growth and development.  My view of well-being is holistic, in that I am attentive your mental, physical, spiritual, and relational needs.  As I psychologist, I promote resilience, balance, and compassion. 

Couples Therapy

        I help couples to foster greater levels of intimacy, trust, and fulfillment as well as develop the tools to navigate conflict effectively.  I work with a diverse array of couples, including those who are married or unmarried, LGBT and traditional or alternative relationship styles.  I am experienced with couples across the spectrum of sexual diversity. 
        I am trained in the techniques of the Gottman Institute and Emotionally Focused Therapy, providing skills for effective communication and techniques to break out of destructive patterns. Couples therapy can help you to manage conflict, improve your connection, and restore the vitality of your relationship.
