I am a licensed Marriage + Family Therapist. I've worked in the mental health field for over 20 years and in private practice for the last 13 years and I love what I do.

In addition to private practice, I've worked in many settings: for-profit and nonprofit organizations, out-patient clinics, universities, primary and secondary education and foster care; providing individual, couple, family and group psychotherapy, wellness and education.

I specialize in Perinatal Mental Health, which means much of my work is with women, men and couples who are contemplating pregnancy, are expecting and who are parenting. I help my clients navigate the intense time of new and early parenthood.

It is my goal to welcome all of my clients into the challenging work of self-discovery and growth with warmth, humor, expertise, and humility.

When I am not working you can find me exploring the Bay Area with my partner and two children.
