Licensed Clinical Psychologist:
Individuals, Adolescents, Couples, Perinatal Issues
I am a licensed clinical psychologist who provides individual and couples psychotherapy in San Francisco. Thank you for your interest.
Reaching out to get started in therapy can generate many feelings- relief, anxiety, hope, fear, and excitement to name just a few. All too often we've been alone with feelings of dissatisfaction, pain, suffering, being stuck, anxiety, shame, depression or crisis. Starting to think about getting support and speaking with a caring professional is a huge step in a promising direction. Therapeutic relationships can truly be life changing and transformational. The issues that are leading you to think about therapy can be worked on, leading to increased satisfaction and joy with yourself, improved relationships with others, and enhanced functioning in pursuit of the life you want.
My general practice welcomes individual adults and older adolescents as well as couples. I have experience working with depression, anxiety, grief, life transitions, identity and sexuality, trauma, substance use, LGBTI concerns, new parenting, family conflict, and work-life balance issues. I have advanced training and specialization in couples therapy, as well as issues relating to the female lifespan during the reproductive and perinatal periods. I received specialized couples training through the PACT Institute, which uses a psychobiological approach to couples therapy based on neuroscience and attachment theory. My expertise on issues of perinatal mental health have led me to publish articles (including the Huffington Post), present at state and national conferences and be featured on local NPR affiliate KQED.
