Somatic Psychotherapy



Perhaps you can relate to one of the following experiences:

  • You're resourceful, intelligent, and talented, yet noticing a desire for more happiness, confidence and sense of purpose in your day to day life. 

  • You've been striving to quiet and calm challenging or overwhelming thoughts, feelings, and emotions.   

  • You have a felt sense or gut feeling that something is off.


If so, listen to your body and emotions, their telling you something.

I understand, and I'm here to help and support you in your growth toward:              ​​

  • Reduced symptoms of anxiety, depression, and feelings of isolation

  • Integrating and resolving sexual trauma, developmental trauma, and PTSD

  • Developing and strengthening self-compassion and self-agency

  • Improved relationships for individualscouples, and multi partners

  • Alternative explorations of identity and sexuality

  • Navigating transitions

  • Processing grief and loss 

  • Movement through creative blocks to a more enlivened self-expression

Welcome! I offer a safe, empathic and compassionate place for therapy  clients in the San Francisco Bay Area to feel support, encouragement, and guidance as they navigate lives many transitions and challenges.



I believe that everyone has the capacity for growth and change, and is equipped with the inner resources to do so...


Adolescence involves physical, psychological, and cultural transitions that can be quite challenging and even painful to navigate, an empathic therapist offers a much needed refuge. 


I understand it may be difficult to reach out for help, it's important we go at your pace...


I welcome and work with couples of all configurations and sexual orientations toward realizing true intimacy. If there is struggle, growth is trying to happen, it's the perfect time to deepen awareness together.

Thank you for the work you do."                                                                                                                                                              - client 2016
