In my role as a psychologist, I have the opportunity to share information and skills in a way that allows people to learn how to best take care of themselves, and advocate for their needs. I believe in the healing power of human connection, and recognize that our daily experiences may contribute to symptoms of depression, anxiety, and other unwanted health outcomes. I appreciate the vulnerability of people who choose to share their stories with me, and enjoy working with people who want support as they engage in self-exploration to make sense of the complexities and intersections of their identities including race and ethnicity, spirituality, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status.
My approach is integrative, with a focus on understanding the systemic and environmental forces that contribute to our understanding of this world, ourselves, and our relationships. I also utilize skills and techniques from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).
I have to do a bit more restaurant exploring in SF to choose a favorite, but I have had an incredible meal at La Mar.
