There are many reasons to begin therapy. At times, we arrive here because life challenges us to heal and to grow. At other times, we challenge ourselves to a deeper understanding of who we are and where we belong.

Psychotherapy is an inquiry into how to live, and how to be with difficulty. It provides a protective space for slowing ourselves down to take a closer and more honest look.  Therapy supports change towards a self that feels more whole, healthy, and understood.  Doing this work reconnects us with our inner creative potential to choose.

I am a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist in California and a Certified Philosophical Counselor. I offer psychotherapy for San Francisco and the Greater Bay Area (Marin County, the East Bay, and Silicon Valley), in Nevada County in the Sierra Nevada Foothills (Grass Valley, Nevada City, Auburn), the Greater Sacramento Area as well as the Greater Los Angeles area, San Diego, and all of California.

If you are outside of California and want to work with me, I offer comprehensive inner work. Inner work are depth session packages focused on specific topics that come up frequently for my clients. While these do not replace psychotherapy, they are informed by all the modalities I am trained in and use regularly. I offer inner work as an addition to therapy, or independently, to clients in and outside of California, throughout North America, Europe, and internationally.

Both psychotherapy and inner work sessions are offered in English and German.

sensitive mastery

I am now happily able to work with sensitive people internationally.

If you identify as a highly sensitive person (HSP), an empath, or an intuitive person, this work is for you.

  • Deepen your understanding of yourself, your relationships, the way you move in the world, and in your work.
  • Benefit from a comprehensive framework to address patterns you wish to shift: My approach is therapeutically and specifically trauma-informed. I work with you to integrate spiritual and ancestral resources, as relevant.
  • Philosophical counseling helps us to address existential issues that are often neglected – how you make sense of your experience, the shape and dynamics of your belief system, as well as ethical considerations.
  • Select this option as complementary to therapy, or independently from it. 

I currently offer this work in a 1:1 setting for adults.
