I am an Early Childhood Mental Health Consultant / Child and Family Therapist at the Homeless Children's Network in San Francisco, CA.
I approach therapy holistically, integrating the mind, body, and spirit. I believe that we are shaped by our early relationships, the socio-cultural-political context we find ourselves in, and our collective histories. Our suffering comes from resilience and survival strategies that may not serve us fully. Growth comes from increasing our self-awareness, learning to love our different parts, and practicing new ways of being, relating, and knowing that align with our deepest values, intentions, and desires.
I graduated with an M.A. in Counseling Psychology with a concentration in Community Mental Health from the California Institute of Integral Studies. In the past, I worked as a therapist at a free outpatient clinic for adults, a mindfulness-based nature program for children, and with survivors of sexual and domestic violence. Before this path, I spent 10 years working on marketing and product development at technology companies.
