My Approach

I am a licensed Psychotherapist and use a mindfulness-based approach to help clients step into their truth and bring forth transformation in their lives. What I mean by a “mindfulness-based approach” is working with your present moment awareness, in the here and now. To move into the realm of deep transformation, any of the following may be necessary for you to take that next step: trauma recovery, forming a new relationship with your fears, cultivating self-acceptance and self-love and/or addressing relationship issues that keep coming up in your life.

I see creative professionals, parents, adults who are wanting to take the next big step in their growth, artists, adolescents, LGBTQQI community and queer youth. I have a speciality in early psychosis treatment and work in the Early Psychosis Clinic at UCSF.

I welcome a wide range of concerns to my practice. Below please find issues I am particularly skilled at working with: 

  • Anxiety

  • Trauma Recovery

  • Early Psychosis

  • Relationship Issues

  • Depression

  • Grief
