Hello and welcome to my therapy website.  I am a practitioner of holistic psychotherapy serving youth and adult individuals, couples and families in San Francisco. Holistic or Integrative approaches consider the importance of multiple facets of a person’s experience, such as the physical, emotional, mental and psychosocial.  Mindfulness, or attention to the present moment, is a cornerstone of my work.  In addition to holistic approaches I also practice traditional talk therapy.  I combine methods that are both practical and depth-oriented, so that we work on developing skills for navigating challenges while also examining patterns and personal histories.  An overarching theme in my work with clients is developing a sense of worth and value in themselves.   I welcome people of all ages, ethnicities, genders and sexual preferences.

A sampling of issues I treat:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety & stress management
  • Relationships & communication
  • Grief & loss
  • Getting through stuck times
  • Transitions
  • Self-esteem & self-acceptance
  • LGBTQQI* & Straight clientele
  • Personal growth

*Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, gender variant.

Approaches I may draw upon:

  • Mindfulness
  • Creative Arts Therapy
  • Solution-focused techniques
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
  • Somatic awareness
  • Psychodynamic Psychotherapy


These modalities are integrated according to what seems most helpful, in concert with clients’ interest and comfort levels.
