My Approach to Therapy:

Do you feel that life has gotten too fast and too crazy? Or perhaps the opposite, that you find yourself in the same old ruts at work, in relationships and you can’t envision life possibly continuing on like this for the foreseeable future?

You have come to the right place! I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in San Francisco. I do work that could be grouped with “counseling, coaching, professional listening, mental health and the healing arts.” No matter what you call it, I’ve been doing it for the past 10 years-- I work hard to create space where people like you can sit down, take a breath, let loose and be heard.

My clients come from a variety of places, are of different races and have different ways of gender expressions. Whether you are new to the area and adjusting to a change in scene, struggling with a new job or new promotion (congratulations!), or coming into or ending a relationship, you probably could benefit from a helping hand or listening ears.

Congratulations on taking this first step, a great first step in taking care of you. Together, we can make change, your change, happen.
