About My Clients

Relationships can bring us the greatest joy and support, and the biggest challenges. We are wired to connect, but we sometimes need support around how we connect with others. I work with clients who are looking to heal within themselves, their relationships with their partners, or experience new ways of being in the world. I work with teens, individuals and couples experiencing loneliness, shame, anxiety, communication issues, self-criticism, depression, burnout and complex trauma.

My Background and Approach

Therapy is a place to unpack and explore. Having a dedicated time and place to process honestly and curiously can give you insights about your patterns, and the deeper currents that may be affecting you. You can experiment and practice different responses to your situation as a way to help you make changes in your life. I work with you where you are each time we meet. I draw on my expressive arts background and am influenced by attachment theory, mindfulness, polyvagal theory and trauma-informed approaches. I meet online with clients in the state of California, and also work with clients in nature in the East Bay and Marin County. I studied Counseling Psychology with Expressive Arts at CIIS in San Francisco. I have experience with teens, seniors, families and groups in medical, residential and psychiatric settings, and working with school-age children experiencing grief and sudden loss

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I donate to the ACLU, and the Street Level Health Project in Oakland. For outdoor sessions, I pay Shuumi Land Tax to Sogorea Te' land trust, an urban indigenous-women led organization.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
