Therapist in San Francisco, CA

About My Clients

I enjoy working with people facing racial identity development, overcoming racial trauma, exploring, and supporting sexuality, relationships, eating disorders, body image, disembodiment concerns, depression, and anxiety. This experience includes body betrayal, internalized phobic messaging, trauma narratives. Whether you are seeking therapy specific to any of these concerns or not, we may explore how your are responding to anxiety, stress, depression, grief, and other emotions.

My Background and Approach

I use a warm and focused approach by including genuine affirmative communication, compassionate listening, and often a sense of humor. All of this is done with a focus on creating a non-judgmental atmosphere where you feel able to explore your thoughts and feelings. I am mindful about including consent around interventions, empowering clients to understand their agency in our sessions. The development of mindfulness, self-compassion, intentionality, and self-reflection are important pieces of my approach. I also take an anti-racist stance to recognize how systems of oppression influence your identity and life. My style is direct, empowering, and collaborative. Together we will work on finding long-term and short-term goals within frameworks and rituals that are unique to you.
