Maybe you've been told you should be smaller-- thinner, quieter, take up less space. I work with mostly trans and non-binary clients, as well as cisgender women who are tired of being told they are "too much." I believe no one is "too much," and that trying to fit ourselves into a box is harmful.

I am a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist offering services to adults and adolescents with trauma or relational difficulties. I shine when working with emotional overwhelm,  fear of intimacy, and spiritual/existential concerns. Currently my caseload is 40% adolescents and 60% adults. 


I identify as white, queer, and female, and I always take into account the sociopolitical context of my clients. I work with mostly trans and non-binary clients, and I view societal oppression as a crucial force in people's lives. I am kink and polyamory affirming, and I strive to acknowledge and grapple with my privilege as a white person.

My style is relational-- meaning I am a real person who is invested in forming a relationship with you that feels good and facilitates healing. In session, we will co-create a space where you can grow in the ways you need.

I also have a passion for working with teens and children. As a San Francisco native and previous high school academic tutor, I can empathize with the uniquely overwhelming pressure of the Bay Area high school experience. I feel particularly called to work with children and teens who are socially anxious, shy, perfectionists, overachievers, autistic, have learning disabilities or ADHD, or are questioning their gender and sexuality.

Scientific research has shown that the best predictor of success in therapy is the strength of the relationship we form together. In other words- we have to like each other! I encourage you to reach out and see if the vibe is right, and to trust your intuition. There's no forcing a good connection.
