I’m glad that you’ve made the decision to seek support in addressing the challenges that you’re facing. Working with a therapist who accepts and understands you provides valuable new perspective and awareness. We'll work to find new ways for you to view, interact with, and respond to the blocks that appear to be preventing you from living your preferred life.

I enjoy working with a wide range of clients, including college students, couples, seniors, and anyone facing major life changes. I have experience working with individuals impacted by anxiety, infidelity, divorce, parenting issues, trauma, addiction, grief and loss, adjustment difficulties, and issues associated with chronic medical conditions. I appreciate individuals whose identity (ethnic, cultural, sexual, gender, or other) places them between two worlds, with all the unique challenges and strengths that this brings.

I approach this work with flexibility, creativity, gratitude, joy, humor, and humility, and I would be honored to assist you on your journey towards healing, growth, and expanded awareness.

My professional background

I have a diverse professional background that informs my work as a therapist. In addition to a few small writing, consulting, and performing jobs in the entertainment industry, I've worked for decades in Silicon Valley as an interface designer for technology companies. This is technical work that also incorporates heart and humanity. I love improving how things work--making them function more clearly, smoothly and effectively, and making them a lot more fun to interact with. This passion, creativity, and heart, also comprises a big part of my work as a therapist.

Preparation and Integration

In addition to my regular clients, I provide preparation and integration services for individuals and couples who are working with psychedelics / entheogens / plant medicines or are considering doing so. I offer support for harm reduction, setting intentions, developing grounding practices, and integrating insights acquired during ceremony. I provide a supportive framework to explore and expand clients' understanding and relationship with transpersonal and visionary experiences.

Video Sessions

I offer both in-person sessions and video sessions.
