San Francisco Trauma and Addiction Counseling

Thank you for visiting my site. I feel honored whenever people allow me into their lives—especially when they don’t know me. One of my first priorities as a therapist is to create a collaborative, affirming environment in which both of us are able to engage in an open dialogue. My intention with this website is to start a dialogue by introducing myself and my practice.

As a therapist, my primary areas of focus are trauma, addictions, anxiety and relationships. I've chosen to focus on these four areas because a problem with one typically creates and reinforces challenges in the other areas as well.

I offer a unique, multi-disciplinary approach that addresses issues in two or more of these areas simultaneously using evidence-based, cutting-edge modalities such as EMDR, Brainspotting (for trauma and anxiety) and EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy) for relationships.

I’m an LGBTQQI affirming therapist and have over a decade of experience supporting people with diverse identities across the gender and sexual-orientation spectrums. If you have questions about my practice or any of the material on this site, please feel free to contact me here. I offer a free 30-minute consultation to provide you with an opportunity to find out more about my work.
