My style as a therapist is warm, direct and curious. I strive to form collaborative relationships with clients and utilize a mix of goal setting, treatment planning and exploratory/ open ended work depending on the client's needs and wants. I have 6 years of post graduate specialized training in Gestalt Therapy, a form of psychotherapy that is centered on increasing a person's awareness, freedom, and self-direction. Through my post graduate study, I also gained exposure to systems theory which has informed my therapeutic approach. I also have training in Internal Family Systems (Level 1) and 9 years of clinical experience. I work with couples and individuals both in person in Hayes Valley, San Francisco and through tele-health sessions. Currently, I am working with both Individuals and couples. Individual clients frequently come to therapy seeking help clarifying what actions they need to take in their life to feel happier and healthier. Additionally, they may benefit from support in taking those steps. I believe that this extra support through therapy helps us flourish, living authentically and at our true potential. I help couples communicate more authentically and effectively, building deep safety and trust in each other. Through practicing empathy, deep listening and personal boundary work, couples grow stronger and are able to both tolerate difference and experience intimacy. About me: On a personal level, I have a strong connection to nature, yoga and music. I am an animal and coffee lover. I am a member of the LGBTQ community and am committed to antiracism work.
