Welcome to my practice.


Hello, I am a San Francisco licensed clinical psychologist with over 20 years experience providing psychotherapy to women, moms, and moms-to-be, with an expertise in the areas of women’s issues and maternal mental health. I help women navigate difficult transitions and identities in their life, toward becoming more balanced, empowered and compassionate individuals. 

Many women I work with struggle with starting a family,  depression or anxiety, loss, difficulties with pregnancy, postpartum, nursing or transitioning back to work, high expectations, perfectionism, trauma, divorce, and difficulty finding their voice.

I also help women address adulting, assertiveness, boundaries, relationships, and family of origin issues so they can better thrive. I am committed to helping you gain the tools you need to cope and help you work through the obstacles that get in the way of your living a more fulfilled and less stressful.

I am co-founder of Potrero Hill Psychotherapy, a group practice dedicated to the excellence of psychotherapy, established in 2002.

Please call me at 415­.487.­7402 to see if we might be a good fit or send me a message via my contact form.
