I provide relational, developmental, psychodynamic psychotherapy in English in an Emeryville office, SF office (Wednesday only), or over video. As of April 2020 new clients are welcome to schedule a full appointment or call and discuss questions and needs before deciding to schedule.
I have 10 years of clinical training and experience, particularly with youth and adults seeking a different understanding or relationship with their emotions or sense of self. I enjoy working with individuals who identify with or are exploring minority and subculture identities, including ethnic, religious, ability, poly, non-monogamy, kink, D/s, queer, LGB, trans, non-binary, and gender-expansive identities. I like to provide a liberated space where any identity is welcome, regardless of the focus or goal for therapy. I have a deep research background in neuropsychology and am happy to provide information on how our brain works in terms of emotional processing, motivation, and habits. In case you are seeking a particular style of therapy, I also enjoy Dialectic Behavior Therapy (DBT), Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), Prolonged Exposure (PE), and integrate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and neuropsychology into my approach whenever desired and helpful. I also have a niche interest in consulting with first-time clients on how to find a good fit in therapy and realize or get what you want out of it.
