I’m a Marriage and Family Therapist in San Francisco, with over 7 years of diverse experience working with adults, couples, families, and children. I provide compassionate, skillful therapy to clients struggling with depression, anxiety, relationships, career challenges, or seeking greater personal growth and creativity.
I draw on multiple approaches including psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and somatic therapy. Prior to training as a therapist, I earned a PhD in physics from Boston University and had a 15-year career as a writer, manager, and entrepreneur in the technology industry. Drawing upon these diverse experiences gives me a broad perspective and multiple options, so I can adapt my working style to each person's needs and preferences.
My focus is not on analyzing the past, but on addressing current problems in living. We all have patterns of thought and behavior, which can stifle our natural capacity for healing and growth. By helping identify and change these patterns therapy enables greater self-awareness, authenticity, and intimacy, which are the foundation for emotional health and happiness. If you need support in improving your life and relationships, please contact me. I look forward to working with you!
