About My Clients

After an emotionally damaging experience, you're left wondering what to do next. You feel exceptionally sad, lose motivation, or struggle with anxiety and panic in a new way. There are times where you can't stop thinking about what's happened to you, and you're unable to make those intrusive thoughts go away. Many people encounter difficulties after emotionally damaging experiences, and feel confused about what to do to make the pain stop. You don't have to be alone in this.

My Background and Approach

Together, we can process the difficult memories of what happened to you, and help you make sense of them. We can get your brain and your nervous system back on your side, so you stop fighting to feel ok every day. You'll learn the tools you need to better your life. By using a warm approach, I help you feel safe to explore the past and start to move forward. Adults, teens/tweens, and folks in any relationship structure are welcomed into my non-judgmental, open-minded private practice. When life gives you lemons... come see me. I'm honored to help you live your best life. Visit my website to learn more about me, and to schedule a time for a free consultation. Take the next step toward healing today.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My core values are centered in feminist, anti-oppression ideals (the type of feminism that includes and honors women of color and trans folks). It means every day, I work with folks like you to unlearn socialization of gender, sexuality, and so many other qualities to find out who you really are, or at least who you want to be today. Who would you be and what would your relationships look like if you’d learned different ways of being? This is a great space to practice what that would, and could, look like. I’m a self-described geek and creative who associates with various non-mainstream identities and communities. I love that, living in San Francisco, I get to live on the edges of normality (whatever normal means, anyway) and work with clients who are exploring and discovering themselves there, as well. I’ve had many clients tell me that coming to my office is like coming to a sanctuary– a place where they really get to be who they are and relax. I’m honored to create that safe space.
