About

Therapy is a special opportunity to know yourself more deeply and make changes that are important to you. Our work together will support you in creating the life, work and relationships that you most deeply want.

I offer a warm, genuine and collaborative presence as a therapist and provide trauma-informed and inclusive care.  

I have a Masters degree in Counseling Psychology and am licensed with the California Board of Behavioral Sciences. My ongoing education includes somatic approaches to healing and anti-oppression work.

 

I have a special interest in working with people on relationship issues and anxiety. I also welcome individuals and couples with reproductive health concerns, including infertility, pregnancy loss, assisted reproduction, alternative families and support for birth. People of all genders are welcome.
