I am a licensed psychologist and utilize Attachment-Focused EMDR to help individuals process underlying traumatic experiences to help facilitate healing from depression, anxiety, problematic relationship patterns, unresolved grief, and self-destructive behaviors. Helping clients improve their lives and restore their sense of well-being and fulfillment is my priority as a relationally-oriented practitioner.
I am passionate about and trained in transformative therapies that are relational and humanistic in their approach. In my utilization of EMDR I place great value on the therapeutic relationship. I strive to create an atmosphere of safety and trust so that clients can feel comfortable sharing and processing difficult life experiences in an accepting environment emphasizing understanding and support. My therapeutic style offers warmth, care and compassion, as well as feedback and ideas about how you may work to improve areas of your life you are seeking to change or manage more successfully.
I maintain a private practice in San Francisco and have completed EMDR Basic Training with Laurel Parnell. I am currently working toward becoming a Certified EMDR Therapist. Additionally, I am a Certified Emotionally Focused (EFT) Couple Therapist.
