There is Hope for your Relationship!

75% stay better
90% of couples feel better

Get back that loving feeling.
Most people start to feel better by the end of the first counseling session!
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is proven to help. In fact, research shows that 90% of couples improve after a brief period of EFT guidance and 75% have maintained their improvements when we check back in two years later.
I am a Certified Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist.
The research also shows I have close to the same probability of helping a highly distressed couple as I do a couple without significant conflict.
The hardest part is just getting started.
Don’t wait any longer to attend to love!

Relate Better to Self and Others with Figs

I specialize in relationship focused counseling for individuals and couples. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (#79062) and certified in Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples. I currently practice in the Inner Sunset neighborhood of San Francisco. My practice is pretty evenly divided between individual and couples counseling. I love to help people workout how to love and feel securely bonded. I am constantly training and working on my skills and psychotherapeutic approach. I am not one to rest on my laurels. In particular, I love being a couples counselor. I often find it is the perfect space, not only to work on improving relationship, but also to explore one’s individual “stuff” in the process. I strive to show up with as much access to my own wounded parts as I do my healer parts when I sit with clients. That way you get to sit with a fellow traveler on the journey of life. If you want an old school blank slate therapist, tis not me you need to call. Relationship is what ultimately heals. So our first step together is to establish a relationship and alliance. Psychotherapy is truly a vocation for me and I am happy to share my passion and down to earth approach with you.
