  • Life is stressful for everyone these days and disconnection from ourselves and others can lead to increased emotional distress and trauma . I believe connection is central to healing. As a therapist my approach is warm, open and friendly. A trusting, safe relationship is essential to all therapeutic work. I will offer tools including; acceptance, compassion and body based somatic exercises to help you become “unstuck” in old patterns and move towards a rich and meaningful life. Together we will work to gain awareness of unhelpful patterns, towards achieving clarity and building greater connection to those around you
    My practice was created with the needs of queer folks, disabled and neurodiverse folks at the center. It is deeply influenced and inspired by the inherent strengths, resilience and wisdom of queer, disabled and neurodiverse individuals. I acknowledge the reality of the systemic, historical and intergenerational traumas that impact these individuals.
    Please reach out for a free consultation. I would love to hear from you! My number is (510) 730-0327 or you can reach me at Thanks.
