I am a licensed psychotherapist with a real passion for helping people heal. Perhaps you are struggling with depression or anxiety; perhaps you had a difficult childhood; maybe you are seeking a spiritual connection to yourself, others, the universe. I strongly believe that your capacity to heal lies within you, and that my role is to create a safe place so that your inner healer can work its natural magic. I am a certified practitioner of EMDR, best known as a powerful therapy for treating post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), but also great with addiction, mood disorders, and spiritual exploration. I also help people prepare for and integrate states of expanded consciousness, I have a Masters of Science in Counseling Psychology from Dominican University of California and a PhD in English from Cornell University. También hablo español.
It was women in asylums at the end of the nineteenth century who first realized that talking to a healer they trusted made them feel better. (Freud's hysterical patients dubbed it "the talking cure.") With 13 years of experience hearing people's stories and acting as a compassionate witness, I consider myself a professional listener.
I'm honored to hear you.
EMDR is the leading-edge treatment for trauma, whether it's a car accident that happened a week ago, or chronic abuse that took place in childhood. I am trained in Attachment-Focused EMDR, which goes deep and helps rebuild your fundamental ability to feel trust, love, and happiness in relationships.
I am EMDRIA certified.
Many people today are seeking healing and awakening through expanded states of consciousness, including EMDR, meditation, and medicines. I do not advocate illegal substances or guide people on them; I do offer preparation and integration to folks before and after their independent journeys with entheogens.
I am MAPS trained.
My regular fee is $185 per 50-minute session. Longer sessions may be advisable for EMDR or Integration, in which case we will discuss your fee in advance.
I have a limited number of openings in my practice for people with San Francisco County Medi-Cal or who need a sliding scale.
My San Francisco location is in the Hayes Valley neighborhood. My Marin office is near downtown Tiburon, a lovely 15-minute drive from the Golden Gate Bridge. My Marin office is accessible to people with disabilities.
