My education and training took place at California Institute of Integral Studies where I completed a Masters in Counseling Psychology. I returned to school having felt called to engage in work that took in the whole person after supporting program planning at the Jung Institute of San Francisco and working for a Buddhist and meditation teacher amongst other healing arts organizations. Prior to this journey I worked in creative and performing arts organizations in both San Francisco at the Fine Arts Museums and New York City at New York City Ballet. I see the thread of how art, movement, symbol and story inform our lives.
Additionally, I find my practice to be informed by my varied life experiences. As a mother and partner I find continual awe in relationship and the unfolding of human experience. With a deep love of nature and a curiosity in what connects us all, I welcome you.
My hope is to support you in sharing your truth and in finding not only relief but in working towards greater clarity. Together, we can find a path towards a more fulfilling experience. I work out of the Marina Counseling Center and look forward to speaking to you about sliding scale availability.
People may come to therapy for a myriad of reasons. Therapy is a weekly space in which to look at and be with your internal and external experience – holding presence for your past, present and future. In exploring both triumphs as well as inquiring into what feels stuck, we take a look at your history and narrative and explore what is presenting itself in the here and now. All while attending moment by moment with compassion and curiosity. I am dedicated to supporting individuals, couples and adolescents of all backgrounds and identities.
Areas of focus:
Mood – anxiety and depression
Relationships – self, family, partner, parent, friend, colleague, community
Identity / Self-exploration / Personal growth
Couples / Pre-Marital
Pregnancy / Pre-Natal / Post-partum
Career / Purpose
Grief / Loss
I am dedicated to offering support and hope to individuals, couples and adolescents of any background and identity who may be working through a myriad of challenges. I offer a warm environment in which to explore and untangle the complexities of life. I aim to support you in sifting through what feels difficult and to offer a grounded, objective and kindhearted space in which to gain the insight necessary for growth. Transformation is possible when one speaks their truth and when one is fully seen in that truth in connection with a compassionate other.
My style of working is warm, interactive and collaborative. I work from an integrative lens incorporating relational, humanistic, psychodynamic perspectives along with mindful awareness. I offer sessions aimed at meeting you where you are in the present while also working towards hope and growth. I believe in supporting mind, body and spirit.
