Raised in a multicultural, blended family on the East Coast in a diverse and status-oriented suburb of NYC, I made my way to the Bay Area in 2010 and quickly felt at home. I've had the experience of living in the Northeast, MidAtlantic, Midwest and West Coast of the US, as well as a short time in Rome, Italy. Much of my early life was dedicated to the arts where I learned to cultivate my own sense of creativity and self-expression, and had the opportunity to know many different types of people. I spent a decade working at large corporations and tiny startups prior to making the jump to psychotherapy.
I received my Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from The Wright Institute and completed my practicum as a Clinical Intern at The Stonewall Project, which is a state-certified drug and alcohol treatment program for men who have sex with men (MSM) providing harm reduction-based counseling that integrates substance use, mental health and HIV prevention and education at the San Francisco Aids Foundation. These earlier experiences have served as the foundation of my social justice lens, and I actively pursue antiracism, feminism, Health at Every Size (HAES), LGBTQ allyship, and disability justice.
I have deep knowledge of working with work stress and discrimination, chronic pain, body image issues and intuitive eating, negotiating multicultural relationships, substance use, identity, sex, depression and anxiety. My work is most influenced by psychodynamic, attachment-based, humanistic and narrative lenses, though I also like to incorporate creative, artistic techniques, CBT, and mindfulness-based self-compassion exercises.
I welcome clients from a variety of backgrounds and with different interests and lifestyles, and commit to providing a non-judgmental space where we can explore who YOU are. I know no two experiences are the same, and while I pursue training and education in cultural and lifestyle competencies, I trust that you are the expert in your own life.
I am currently accepting new couples/partner clients, as well as teens age 14-18.
