As research has shown, the quality of the relationship with your therapist is important for a successful outcome in psychotherapy. With this in mind, my approach involves a warm, caring and attentive style of listening and exploring, and I will work with you to help you find your way.
I have many years of experience successfully helping individuals through a range of issues involving anxiety, stress, depression, anger, healing from trauma, addressing problems with relationships and life changes, working through grief and recovering from loss.
EMDR Therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an effective form of psychotherapy, in addition to traditional “talk” therapy. I am trained and experienced in providing EMDR Therapy and, when appropriate, EMDR Therapy can successfully help with many issues.

I received the Integral Counseling Psychology Master of Arts degree from the California Institute of Integral Studies, completed extensive training at The Psychotherapy Institute and trained while providing counseling and therapy services at various agencies in the San Francisco Bay Area including Haight Ashbury Psychological Services, San Francisco Suicide Prevention, Bonita House Creative Wellness Center, Peninsula Family Services and Adolescent Counseling Services.
I have a comfortable, private psychotherapy office conveniently located in downtown San Mateo.
