My psychotherapy and counseling practice is in San Francisco's Hayes Valley and Downtown Petaluma. I work with individuals, children, and adolescents.

My post-graduate experience was with the Grateful Heart Holistic Therapy Center as an intern where I had exposure to body based therapies including trauma interventions.

With respect to children and adolescents I had a post graduate internship at St. Mary's Hospital's Mcauley Psychiatric Unit where I worked with children and teenagers who were dangers to themselves or others.
