Welcome! 

 

Some of my areas of expertise:

  • Family conflict and communication issues
  • Compulsive and addictive behaviors
  • Teens struggling with issues like self esteem, problems with peers, ADHD symptom management
  • Young Adults struggling with substance abuse, anxiety/depression or the transition from teen to adult.

 

How I work:

We focus on working toward your goals. Sometimes we’ll go deep and you’ll learn more about yourself. Other times you’ll leave sessions with concrete tools you’ll start using right away.  

 

Why I do this work:

Through my own life struggles and pain, I learned the value of having a skilled therapist support me through challenging times. I know the struggle to get sober and what it’s like to experience deep, shocking grief in sobriety. I can say from experience that life is much better when I am fully present.

 

Experience and training:

I’ve been a therapist for over 15 years. I’ve worked in a high school counseling center, inpatient and outpatient treatment center for teens, and before opening my private practice in Lafayette, I worked for over 6 years at Kaiser’s Chemical Dependency Program in Oakland.
