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.

Good Faith Estimate for Health Care Items & Services (Under the No Surprises Act)
Under the No Surprises Act (H.R. 133 - effective January 1, 2022), health care providers need to give clients or patients who do not have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
This Good Faith Estimate shows the costs of items and services that are reasonably expected for your health care needs for an item or service. The estimate is based on information known at the time the estimate was created.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes (under the law/when applicable) related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
The Good Faith Estimate does not include any unknown or unexpected costs that may arise during treatment. You could be charged more if complications or special circumstances occur. If this happens, federal law allows you to dispute (appeal) the bill.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
You may contact the health care provider or facility listed to let them know the billed charges are higher than the Good Faith Estimate. You can ask them to update the bill to match the Good Faith Estimate, ask to negotiate the bill, or ask if there is financial assistance available.
You may also start a dispute resolution process with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). If you choose to use the dispute resolution process, you must start the dispute process within 120 calendar days (about 4 months) of the date on the original bill.
There is a $25 fee to use the dispute process. If the agency reviewing your dispute agrees with you, you will have to pay the price on this Good Faith Estimate. If the agency disagrees with you and agrees with the health care provider or facility, you will have to pay the higher amount.
Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate within the following timeframes:
If the service is scheduled at least three business days before the appointment date, no later than one business day after the date of scheduling;
If the service is scheduled at least 10 business days before the appointment date, no later than three business days after the date of scheduling; or
If the uninsured or self-pay patient requests a good faith estimate (without scheduling the service), no later than three business days after the date of the request. A new good faith estimate must be provided, within the specified timeframes if the patient reschedules the requested item or service.
Note: A Good Faith Estimate is for your awareness only. It does NOT involve you needing to make any type of commitment.
To learn more and get a form to start the process, go to www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call 800-985-3059. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate or the dispute process, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call 800-985-3059. Keep a copy of this Good Faith Estimate in a safe place or take pictures of it. You may need it if you are billed a higher amount.
