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 people to services – it also focuses on social justice.
