Many of us reach out when we feel the need for support, or help working through challenging times. Sometimes we face challenges we think are too difficult to manage alone. I believe in taking a strength-based, client-centered approach to psychotherapy, working with you to help you grow toward your best self. The familiar ways you have of dealing with life's complications may not be working; together we can work to identify new positive means of change.

I have trained in an integrative model of psychotherapy, and have experience with person-centered, CBT, narrative, existential/humanist therapies, and other methods. No two clients are alike, and I collaborate with my clients to plan customized therapy that works for each person.

I am a Gender Specialist as defined by Gaylesta, and work as part of a Gender Team of clinicians at UCSF. I regularly assist clients with issues related to gender identity and gender-confirming surgical options.
