Biographical Info I run a private practice in the Mission district of San Francisco with adults, teens, tweens, and relationships. Primarily, I address issues related to trauma and abuse, including harm reduction and behavioral interventions for high risk behaviors. I also work with young professionals to address challenges they are facing in succeeding or advancing in career, relationships, and other areas of life-- including stress management, increasing positive mood, accessing flow states, and more. I always strive to create a space that is friendly, aware, and affirming of marginalized identities, including sexual and gender identities (LGBTQ+), non-monogamy/polyamory, and kink/BDSM. I am aware of intersectional identities, and work to honor and address the dynamics in the therapy room.

Short Description Trauma Therapy for Survivors of Sexual and Domestic Violence and their Loved Ones

Description Are you a survivor of trauma, abuse, and/or violence? Are you working through challenging symptoms, such as post traumatic stress (PTSD), anxiety, panic attacks, depression, insomnia, anger, and nightmares? I know how hard it can be to make it through even one day of that struggle. I have experience helping people who have survived these circumstances with rebuilding their lives, and would be honored to see you along your journey to inner peace.Your relationships may also be majorly impacted by your symptoms. Maybe folks in your life don\'t understand why you\'re quick to anger, or why you have a hard time getting out of bed some mornings. Perhaps you can\'t tolerate conflict, high stress, or loud noises, and your loved one thinks you\'re being overly sensitive or gets frustrated with you. It might even feel like these relationships are so strained that you don\'t know if you want them to continue. While working with an individual who has a trauma history is definitely beneficial, it is also helpful to work with partners and family members to better understand and support the survivor and more thoroughly work through the issues that are arising. Because the wounding happened in relationship with others, the healing must also occur in relationship with others. For this reason, I work with survivors and their loved ones, including parents, partners, best friends-- you name it! It\'s a passion of mine to help folks better understand and support survivors and help save relationships that don\'t need to end due to trauma symptoms.Does any of this sound like you?
