Psychotherapy for helpers, creative folks, and changemakers in the SF Bay Area.
Teachers: Burnout is real, and the stress is starting to impact your relationships, health, and home life.
Tech Professionals: You can have time for both relationships and work by building healthy boundaries and work-life balance.
Teens & Youth: I'll help you become more of who you are, not who someone else wants you to be.
You want to change the world, express yourself, and feel awesome. But it seems like whenever things are going your way, a voice in your head starts beating you up. You feel ashamed, self-critical, alone, and like a loser. Every time you achieve something, you feel scared you're going to lose it. You're not sure if it's the world that's against you or if you're your own worst enemy, but either way you're tired of feeling stuck. You're tired of these old painful patterns with food, blowing up or shutting down in relationships, and letting perfectionism and self-criticism dictate what you're allowed to do (and who you're allowed to do it with). If you ever feel self-critical, stuck, overwhelmed, anxious, or completely burnt out by everything you're trying to do, call me.
I am skilled at diving deep and making links between parts of you that might have been pushed aside in order to cope. For ten years, I have helped people like you de-escalate that critical inner voice so that you have more energy to play, have fulfilling relationships, success at work, and learn how to love yourself. If you feel stuck in grief, I can help you mourn, and find your own direction after loss and transition. At your own pace, we will explore the parts of you that might feel afraid, hidden, and vulnerable. Facing your fear and shame in a warm and containing environment can help liberate you from the ways you unconsciously keep yourself stuck. Over time, you can become more aware of your feelings, needs, and desires, and feel more confident and powerful in your life.
It's time to stop hiding. Let me help you live the life you desire.

"And the speaking will get easier and easier. And you will find you have fallen in love with your own vision, which you may never have realized you had. And you will lose some friends and lovers.... And new ones will find you and cherish you. ... And at last you'll know with surpassing certainty that only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth. And that is not speaking.” - Audre Lorde
