My background is in medical care and education, working in women's health, assistant teaching elementary-aged children, serving as a birth doula, and teaching yoga. These experiences, along with my formal education, dance practice, and voracious appetite for books and articles from The New Yorker, greatly inform my work as a therapist. I hold a bachelor's degree in communications from Simmons College, a master's degree in somatic psychotherapy from John F. Kennedy University, and am a SFSI certified sex educator. I’ve lived in the Bay Area for the past decade but you’ll still be met with East Coast candor. I’m an active listener; you won’t be talking to a blank wall.
I am dedicated to practicing respectful, non-pathologizing, culturally-informed, and community-relevant therapy.
