About

In my practice, I work with individuals seeking personal insight, relief from anxiety or depression, and a variety of mental health concerns. I also work with couples and other relationships in whatever forms they take.  My training included two years at Haight Ashbury Psychological Services (or "HAPS," where I now serve as President of the Board of Directors) and UCSF Alliance Health Project (AHP, where I also work as a psychotherapist).  I'm glad to have the opportunity to bring my work into a private practice setting. I have many years of experience with the LGBTQ+ community, and I continue my work as part of the AHP Gender Team to provide services for trans and gender-expansive clients as well as others.  I have presented at conferences and organizational meetings about cultural humility and working with gender issues.

My therapy style is integrative, working with each client to create a treatment plan that fits their specific needs.  Generally, I combine psychodynamic work with a strong client-centered/person-centered (Rogerian) orientation. I have experience with CBT and ACT techniques, work with substance use issues from a harm-reduction perspective. I also incorporate elements of narrative, feminist, and interpersonal therapy.

I have extensive group experience, having facilitated groups at AHP and other agencies for over 20 years. Recently, I presented to the California Counseling Association about group therapy, and I also presented at two other conferences on the "Creative Arts for Active Substance Users" group I co-facilitate. And I worked as a guest lecturer at California School of Professional Psychology in a graduate-level Group Psychotherapy class, and also taught the experiential lab for that class.

My undergraduate education began at UCLA, and (after some studies in Burma) I received a Bachelors in Humanities and Psychology from New College of California. I received my Masters in Clinical Counseling from the California School of Professional Psychology.
