There are times when we can feel overwhelmed in our life and our usual coping skills are not enough. We may be struggling in our relationships, work, with addictive behaviors or just a general sense of unhappiness or anxiety. Individual or couples therapy can help. I have a warm, collaborative and interactive approach to help you uncover the roots of the issue and help you heal and change the patterns that are blocking you from feeling a sense of connection and joy in your life, relationships and work.
I specialize in working with couples and individuals. I have trained extensively in couples therapy including AEDP for Couples, Ellyn Bader's Couples Institute training, Dan Wile's Collaborative Couples therapy and EFT. I work relationally with an attachment focus and incorporate mindfulness, behavioral, somatic and experiential approaches as well as EMDR for trauma resolution.

I specialize in burnout, blocked creativity and loneliness because I know all of those things. I’ve worked in corporate and tech settings for most of my career and spent several years working from home. I found that creative expression, movement and in-real-life contact were the antidote to feelings of disconnection and burnout.

I earned my Masters in Counseling Psychology in the Expressive Arts program at California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco. My expressive arts training and experience includes Narrative therapy, movement, sandtray, sound healing, visual arts, and drama therapy.

Prior to Grateful Heart, I worked as an expressive arts therapist intern at Contra Costra Regional Medical Center, and as a group and individual counselor at the Oakland Adult Rehabilitation Center.
