support for finding clarity

& creating transformation



I am a therapist based in San Francisco, but I work with clients throughout California. I work with people who are ready to make significant change in their lives. I support people in times of transition and when they want more out of life but feel stuck. Together we look at limiting patterns to understand what is needed to move forward. Helping people have a more fulfilling connection with themselves, loved ones, and the world around them is a main focus of my work.

To have a good life we need to free ourselves from patterns that keep us feeling small and stuck. First, we need to know what we want and what gets in the way of listening to ourselves or taking action. We need to be able to communicate in a way that feels authentic, which includes setting boundaries without being crushed by guilt, and learning how to connect with others without losing ourselves.

It often feels easier to live in a way that is familiar than to act on the desire for change. I create a safe space with my clients to gently challenge the status quo so you can make your way to a life that is more fulfilling and genuine.
