The therapeutic relationship is a powerful place for significant growth, change & meaning. My aim as a psychotherapist is to offer you a space where you can freely express and feel, while moving towards a deeper engagement with your inner and outer worlds. Clients come to me to work on concerns such as depression and anxiety, grief, trauma and PTSD, mood and personality disorders, sexuality, spirituality, and relationships. As your therapist, I will meet you with curiosity and compassion, we will slow down together and explore your depths to bring to consciousness the things that may be obstructing your path forward.

My approach is collaborative and relational, and varies based on your specific needs and pace. My therapeutic background is grounded in a depth perspective, emphasizing psychodynamic, relational, somatic, and Jungian theories, while bringing in mindfulness, IFS, and mind-body practices when appropriate. As a depth-oriented therapist, I orient to the unconscious, those aspects of experience and suffering that are not always known to conscious awareness. Together we may explore the unconscious through dreams, fantasies, body sensations, thoughts, and feelings. I draw from psychodynamic approaches, which emphasize how past experiences and relationships shape our present reality.  I value the importance of relating to the patient as a whole person, appreciating the complexity of the mind and the multiplicity of the psyche.

I view the client-therapist relationship as sacred, requiring compatibility and trust, and it is deeply important to me that you feel respected and cared for throughout this challenging work. If you are seeking therapy, I’d love to learn more about you and see how I can best support you.

I am currently working towards my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute. I earned my Master’s in Clinical Psychology from the same institution in 2022. My previous therapeutic experience from a psychodynamic approach includes training at California Pacifica Medical Center in San Francisco and at Bay Area Clinical Associates in Berkeley.

I received a Bachelor of Sciences in Biopsychology, Cognition, and Neuroscience from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Additionally, I hold a certification as a yoga teacher. Presently, I teach classes for veterans at the Palo Alto VA. At the VA, I also participate in assisting clinical trials that evaluate yoga as a treatment for Alzheimer’s, chronic pain, and Lyme disease. My passion revolves around movement, music, and the mind/body connection.
