I have always had a passion to do something that would make a difference in people’s lives. Through hearing people’s stories and creating authentic relationships I found my dream. Allowing space for the good, the bad, and the ugly, the real life stuff, makes that connection possible. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I am committed to the well-being of all my client’s and helping them to find themselves and live the life they were meant to be living. I care for all of my clients, and work diligently to help find them the answers they seek. Since 2010, I have worked with a variety of clients dealing with circumstances that are unique to their lives. I believe everyone has a story to tell and I want to hear yours to help you gain greater insight into you and find the tools necessary to begin the path towards a life of fulfillment. In addition to providing therapy to my clients, I offer individual and group supervision for MFT’s in training, helping them develop their therapeutic skills and advance their knowledge in the clinical setting. Lastly, as a way to give back to the profession and stay closely connected to the newest developments in the field, I teach graduate courses in Marriage & Family Therapy.

I seem to be wired towards empathy – I often feel and pick up on the emotions of others around me, and can rather easily “put myself in their shoes”. I grew up as a dual-citizen in Europe and moved to the US for college, and having been raised bi-culturally, I can often connect deeply with others who feel different, disconnected, or feel there is a part of them that doesn’t “belong”. My work experience pre- and post-licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist includes working at a residential care facility for troubled youth, in homeless and recovery transitional living, in a psychiatric hospital PHP program, and in private practice settings. I believe there is great purpose for every person’s life, and that their whole being is precious and valuable – even the parts of them that have been rejected by others or cut off and pushed aside by themselves. My desire is to help my clients find wholeness and peace, even when circumstances around them don’t always change. I approach the healing journey from a holistic perspective, considering the mental, physical, emotional, spiritual, and relational parts of a person as equally needing attention and care, as I believe they all affect one another. It is my hope that in our time together, you find a safe haven in which you can build trust with me, allowing you to heal, grow, find peace, increase your ability to manage life’s stressors and hardship, and move into the future seasons of your life with greater confidence, courage, and joy. I take my responsibility as a therapist but also as a fellow traveler on this healing journey very seriously, and consider it an honor to walk with you.

We all have a story.

For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by stories.  Through these stories I have learned that at their core, we all experience similar joys, trials, milestones and heartbreaks.  We were never meant to go through these experiences alone and having someone along for the ride makes all the difference.

As a marriage and family therapist, I invest wholeheartedly in my clients to foster a safe, nurturing relationship where clients feel seen, understood and valued.  Rooted in a holistic and humanistic approach, my goal is for each client to leave my office with the confidence that they are worthy, loved and capable of achieving the healing and peace they are desperately seeking.

My pre and post licensure experience has been spent serving in academia, working with undergraduate and graduate students both at the therapeutic and administrative level.  Prior to working full time in private practice, I worked intensively in the San Francisco foster care system providing trauma-informed community based therapy, case management and court mandated therapeutic visitations with foster youth and their families.

I am passionate about the therapeutic process and believe with each session you will get closer to achieving what you set out to discover.  I consider it a true honor and privilege to bear witness to your story and am eager to take that next step with you.
