"Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and by honoring the questions, one day, you will live your way into the answers"- Rainer Maria Rilke
I specialize in women's health and wellness with a particular focus on reproductive and maternal mental health concerns, such as postpartum depression and anxiety. I feel honored to help many women explore and adjust to the many identity transitions that accompany pregnancy and new motherhood.
My clinical work is rooted in my deep passion and training in psychoanalytic and psychodynamic theory, as well as mindfulness-based practices. I believe that psychodynamic therapy helps people discover something that they did not know about themselves, previously (insight) and that this insight, over time, leads to personal change.
I bring a depth-oriented approach to my work and I have completed several Mindful Parenting workshops along with clinical training in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of perinatal mood concerns, such as the baby blues, postpartum depression and anxiety.
I integrate a mind/body approach that focuses on the holistic well being of each individual. I work with my patients for brief and longer-term treatment. I also co-facilitate a postpartum support group, "The Afterglow" for the UCSF Women's Health & Resource Center, as well as "The New Nest," a three-week pregnancy support circle.
