Short Description I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the San Francisco Bay Area with core focus on Anger Management, Adolescents, Life Transitions, and Relationships.

Description I am a Marriage & Family Therapist (MFT) with my offices being located in Noe Valley, Marina District, and Inner Sunset/UCSF areas of San Francisco, where 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 teenagers 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 have a great deal of experience with young adults 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. For the majority of my professional career, I have provided 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 also regularly facilitate trainings on the impact of trauma on individuals and communities. 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. Often times, to augment the therapy one is receiving, a person will also work with psychiatrists, nutritionists, school teachers/counselors, and other healthcare providers. I have vast experience in working and coordinating treatment with adjunct professionals to best formulate a comprehensive treatment plan for you to get the results you define. I have a very broad knowledge of services offered within the San Francisco Bay Area and can be of assistance in making these connections and referrals. I am also a firm believer in constant personal and professional growth through ongoing learning, reading, research, peer and professional consultation, and experience. In my time outside of work I enjoy surfing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and hanging out with my dog. I have been fascinated by stand-up comedy since I was a child and watch live shows as often as possible.
