Accepting Clients

I believe therapy should be thoughtful and client-centered, but also focused and finite.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Oakland, CA


About My Clients

I work with clients on substance use, anxiety, depression, OCD, ADHD, trauma, and many other challenges. I most love working with clients who have been in conventional talk therapy for years, don't feel like they've gotten anywhere, and want a fresh perspective. Also, I have a corporate background and find I bring particular value to professional clients with some combination of career stress/burnout/ambivalence and relationship difficulties/isolation.

My Background and Approach

After a lengthy finance career, I decided that I needed a career that was more about people and less about spreadsheets. Becoming an ally to those trying to make meaningful changes in their lives has proven to be a profoundly rewarding career decision. As far as my approach to therapy goes: I want to meet clients where they're at, but I also want to be focused on some sort of measurable change. I have worked with many clients who have spent years talking in circles with other therapists, and I love helping those clients finally achieve breakthroughs.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I have found clinical success with a wide variety of clients, and I am a proud advocate for all clients regardless of race, gender identity, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, citizenship status, body size, disability, or age.

I have experience with the following
  • Agnosticism
  • Atheism
