Personal Statement

I work primarily with individuals and some families. My main focus of treatment and experience are in anger management, adolescents, life transitions, and relationships. I enjoy working with adolescents and young adults as they develop their personal identity and grow towards healthy independence and need support they cannot get from their peer or parent group. I like to work with young adult and mid-life individuals facing career stress/fatigue and life challenges. I have experience in working with the parents of children who are learning to support the needs of a child with emerging mental health issues.

Since 2008, I have provided high quality mental health services in settings ranging from college counseling centers, inpatient psychiatric facilities, juvenile correctional centers, and community-based not for profit agencies to a very diverse population of individuals and families. My background training in the field is influenced greatly by Humanistic/Person Centered Theory, Family Systems, Solution Focused Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I have received extensive training in Anger Management and have facilitated numerous groups to address issues associated with anger control. I am also passionate about Integrative Mental Health, which seeks to combine traditional and alternative therapeutic treatment to fit the needs of the individual. Working in the San Francisco Bay Area, I’ve been fortunate to work alongside and learn from some very unique and talented people and like to “borrow” some of the cool stuff that they have taught me when working with my clients.

My approach with each individual is very collaborative. I truly believe in identifying the goals the client wants to get out of their work with me and determining the best strategy for getting results.

My Approach to Helping I truly believe that healing comes from exploring and working through what “comes up” in your mental, physical, energetic, and spiritual bodies.
