I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (#130852), a San Francisco Sex Information (SFSI)-certified sex educator, and a Somatica®-trained sex/intimacy coach. I have worked with a wide variety of populations, including queer and trans folks, adolescents, and recently homeless adults. I started a queer sex workers support group at Queer LifeSpace in the Castro in San Francisco. If you are a provider and would like to learn more about working with sex workers, I also offer a training on Sex Worker Affirming Care.
I work from a psychodynamic and social justice framework, integrating dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) techniques such as mindfulness and distress tolerance to provide clients with more immediate relief of symptoms. I work from an attachment lens, meaning that I help people understand the way they relate to others in relationships and help people feel more connected and secure. I also speak Spanish, and enjoy working with folks from a wide variety of backgrounds and cultures.
