Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in San Francisco, CA

About My Clients

I tend to work well with busy people, those who work in tech or other careers requiring an analytical mind, high achievers, who might get stuck in their thoughts, or push themselves too hard. Those who are trying to find meaning amidst the rat race. Those who want to take stuff from therapy and implement it pretty quickly. The issues that I best serve: relationship problems, anxiety, depression, trauma, work-life balance, stress, anger management, finding meaning, and family conflict.

My Background and Approach

As a former attorney originating from a purely logical mindset, I utilize science-based, brain-based, evidence-based approaches to generate practical tools to use in your everyday life. Trained in the Developmental Model of couples therapy and PACT, which draw upon insights from neuroscience and attachment theory, I help couples replace frustrating, repetitive patterns of conflict with mutual responsiveness and alleviation of distress. With EMDR, together we can heal the impact of critical parenting, emotionally dismissive or neglectful parenting, persistent conflict in existing relationships, whatever's getting in your way. Especially when EMDR is combined with Internal Family Systems Therapy and even as-needed ketamine-assisted psychotherapy. Whether it's any of the above or CBT, mindfulness-based practices or attachment theory, my goal is to help you get to know yourself better, communicate more effectively, strengthen your relationships and better navigate the work world.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I volunteer as part of a very large organization in San Francisco whose mission includes building community and inspiring activism on behalf of the LGBTQ community. I am an active member and former Board Member At-Large of Gaylesta, the Psychotherapist Association for Gender and Sexual Diversity. My work as a psychotherapist is informed by my deep belief that we are all equal, we are all deserving of love and respect, and we all deserve to be happy, regardless of what we look like, how we identify, what pronouns we use, or whom we love.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
