About My Clients

My clients seek my services when personal problems or relationship disappointments drain the joy, fun & creativity from otherwise rewarding lives & careers. No one wants to remain stuck or feel sad, depressed or anxious for long. I offer a safe space where you'll feel heard, respected, & validated. Collaboratively, we will unpack the challenges you're facing & create insight around patterns that no longer serve you. I help my clients grow & develop, for themselves & those they love.

My Background and Approach

*Offering in-person + video sessions* Welcome! I’m so glad you are here, exploring options for support. It can feel intimidating reaching out for the first time, or finding a new therapist & I’d like to make it as comfortable as possible. Come as you are. I am warm, engaging, nurturing, direct, & relational. My intention is to provide you with the tools to live a life that expresses your deepest values. In the face of distress, living from your values will enable you to lead a meaningful life & to be the person you want to be. Because no single approach is right for everyone, I have trained in & use a balanced blend of client-centered & empirically-based approaches to help you reach your goals. More specifically, my work is informed by the following therapeutic orientations: Psychodynamic, Humanistic, Cognitive-Behavioral (CBT), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for Couples, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) & EMDR.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe every individual is different & each requires a unique perspective & different level of support. My clients are people who love life & want the most out of their relationships. Connection, love & companionship are all of great value to them. They are committed to those they relate to. However, the stress & the busyness of life may have gotten them off track. What I've learned in my over 10 years of experience providing mental health support in the Bay Area (in English, Romanian & Spanish) in different settings & capacities (from volunteering on the National Suicide Line, in hospice & domestic violence shelters, to working in community mental health clinics) is that clients often fear that their problems will be overwhelming. Paradoxically, even when experiences are frustrating, grim or frightening for clients, sharing them in therapy is typically relieving, enlivening and even joyful. Alternatives then become possible.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
I have experience with the following
  • Agnosticism
  • Atheism
  • Buddhism
  • Christianity
  • Interfaith
