About me

As a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist with more than 15 years of experience treating adults, couples, adolescents, & families, I offer therapy utilizing my training in CBT, DBT, Gottman, & Brainspotting. My counseling services are provided in English, French, & Spanish.

"The Bay Area is both a beautiful and challenging place to live. Many dual income and professional families struggle with the pressures of maintaining their lifestyles and helping their children succeed in school and life. Many are suffering from anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and even infertility that are directly related to the challenges they face day in and day out. As a former practicing lawyer, a hi-tech business development manager and marketing director, and a first-time parent later in life, I am intimately familiar with these challenges. When I began practicing as a therapist, I knew I wanted to apply my life experience to help inspire busy professionals and their families work through the challenges, transitions, and struggles of living and thriving in the Bay Area."
