I am a licensed clinical psychologist. I have a private practice in downtown Castro and the Financial District. My passion lies in working with individuals seeking personal growth, self-awareness, self-acceptance, and authenticity. I address the mind, body, and spirit in my practice, by empowering individuals to trust in their own experience and tune in deeply to presence and healing. I have a deep respect for the healing properties of psychedelics and the important roles that they may have in our life’s journey. I have a Masters (MA) in Transpersonal Psychology and a Doctorate (PsyD) in Spiritually-Oriented Clinical Psychology, at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology at Sofia University in Palo Alto, California. Transpersonal psychology integrates the spiritual and transcendent aspects of the human experience through East-West modalities of modern psychology.
How I work with clients
Our work together will invite you to reconnect to a deeper sense of meaning within yourself and in your daily life. I offer a space of learning and guidance for how to welcome all parts of yourself with compassion, attentiveness, and deep care. I blend mindfulness-based techniques rooted in psychodynamic, somatic (body-oriented), and East-West psychology. I work collaboratively, helping you see your personal challenges with greater clarity and compassion, by bringing in opportunities for mindfulness and emotional healing that inform the healthy aspects of your being. My ultimate goal is to help you reestablish a sense of inner safety, trust within yourself, and your ability to love deeply.
