I'm Not Your Mother's Psychotherapist!
Congratulations on taking this first step to making a positive change in your life. Itʼs a reflection of the belief you have in yourself, your courage to change, and your willingness to empower yourself with the tools and support to finally live the life you want.

I work with artists, activists, teenagers, immigrants, dieting survivors, couples of all kinds, bicultural identities, money matters, sexual outsiders, grief and loss, body size issues, PTSD, trauma, substance abuse, sex and love addiction, adult children, LGBTQIQ/gender identity, and eating disorders.

Together, we will roll up our sleeves and explore whatever it is that is keeping you depressed, overwhelmed, anxious or stuck in behaviors, patterns and relationships that arenʼt serving you.

I believe beyond a shadow of a doubt, that we all have the capacity to transform our lives; to find satisfying relationships, meaningful work, and make conscious contact with the incredible healing power inside of us all.
Clients describe me as warm, engaging, challenging without being harsh, kind, creative, playful, and intuitive. I offer a safe and healing space in which to move at your own pace. By using your experience as the focal point of our work, we will come up with active ways to expand your awareness, and confront whatever is keeping you from the increased creativity, growth and satisfaction that you seek.

I draw from many therapeutic orientations and influences, including existentialism, mindfulness, humanistic, and somatic therapies. At heart, however, I am gestalt therapist. In a nutshell, this means that I hold dear the principles of curiosity, awareness, and self-responsibility. I help clients notice what they’re doing, how they’re doing it, how they can move towards where they want to be, while bringing full acceptance to the here and now.

I am sex-positive, & queer and kink friendly. Hablo español.
