About Me

My approach is collaborative and warm.

My goal is to provide you with tools to improve your mental and emotional health. I aim to do this with curiosity and encouragement in psychotherapeutic partnership.

I offer experience and training working throughout the San Francisco Bay Area in mental health and substance abuse treatment, mostly in community programs. I have met and provided clinical services to adults from lots of walks of life. I truly like to get to know new people, and – with time and patience – learning about their intricacies. I like asking questions that others might be afraid to ask. And I welcome humor as a way to deepen connection.

I am licensed with the California Board of Behavioral Sciences as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, License No. LCSW 97372.

Clinical social workers, professional clinical counselors, marriage and family therapists, and psychologists all practice psychotherapy – clinical social work specializes in making sense of the person in their environment and connecting our clients to services, with focus on social justice.
