I hold a masters degree in counseling psychology from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology. My past experiences include Youth and Family Enrichment Services, Peninsula DBT, California Pacifica Medical Center and New Perspectives Center for Counseling.
I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and have my private practice in San Francisco.
Prior to embarking on this profession, I worked in the software industry for over a decade. During my search for a new career, I was a math tutor, music teacher and professional organizer. Many of my clients are seeking meaning and purpose in their lives. In my search, I was called to this work and I hope that I can help you in discovering and following your life purpose.
I believe that everyone longs to be understood and validated.
I believe in the mind, body and spirit connection as well as interconnectedness of all beings.
I believe that each person has innate wisdom and can access this wisdom at any time.
I believe that everyone deserves to live a happy, purposeful and rewarding life.
I believe in the healing power of having an empathic witness to one's life.
I believe that mindfulness is the foundation of healing and that it cultivates compassion, authenticity and love.
