I believe that how we relate to others is deeply connected to our view of self. I work with clients to recognize and challenge their own inner critics, and cultivate more compassion for self and others. My expertise is helping individuals and couples identify and address interpersonal and relationship difficulties, sexuality-related concerns, symptoms of trauma related to abuse or neglect, depressive and anxiety disorders, minor substance abuse issues and other concerns. I am passionate about working with clients who identify as sex positive, LGBTQ and those who practice consensual non-monogamy. I have 10 years of experience as a therapist treating ethnically and socioeconomically diverse clients in a variety of mental health settings.
