About Me

I was born and raised in NYC and have lived in Lagos, Madrid, Dubai, Jakarta and Mumbai. Each city opened my eyes to expansive values, beautiful cultures and the notion that life can be lead in so many incredible ways, not one better than the other. I have now been in San Francisco for over 8 years and never want to leave.

Before becoming a therapist, I tried my hand at a lot of different jobs but I never had a career. I worked in services, education, advertising, entertainment, journalism and tech. I can relate to high stress, intense pressure, unyielding expectations and endless workloads. I’ve experienced the desire for work-life balance and the not knowing how to get there; the want for peace and quiet and the need to constantly be busy; and the necessity of appearing like I have it all together meanwhile feeling like I was just hanging on by a thread. I get it. I’ve been there. Now I want to help.

In graduate school I worked with clients around the Bay Area to overcome whatever was standing between them and their best self. My passion for this work led me to create Honest Space Psychotherapy, where I focus on teaching young professionals (individuals and couples) how to manage anxiety, build self-worth and strengthen relationships. In session, we practice mindfulness and create balance. We laugh, we cry, we explore and we connect all to help you be the person you want to be.

My approach to therapy is collaborative, active, and nonjudgmental. I believe that we are a team working together with a common objective – helping you feel better. I don’t work from one specific theoretical orientation (such as CBT or Psychodynamic), but instead I pick and choose the most helpful tools from a variety of models based on our conversations and your needs to help you achieve your goals quickly and confidently. I do not believe in the one size fits all model and so every session is specifically tailored to you. I value transparency and constantly encourage open and direct feedback from my clients.

When I'm not with my clients, I'm usually chasing my toddler around various parts of San Francisco, hiking, sailing, camping, doing yoga or spending time with family and friends.
