Overcome. Grow. Thrive.

Welcome, and thank you for your interest in my practice. I specialize in serving gifted, professional, and creative/artistic adults. When you have a demanding job or high visibility it can be hard to seek help because of the pressure to maintain a “game face”. In my office, you can be yourself because I’ve walked in your shoes and get your world. I have a Stanford MBA and Berkeley MSEE, and have worked in startups, nonprofits, academia, and F500 companies. I have special training in working with gifted clients.

Executives and professionals seek my help with anxiety, depression, work/life balance, stress/burnout, impostor syndrome, procrastination, romantic and workplace relationships, creativity blocks, feeling disconnected/isolated, navigating transitions, and feeling trapped or unfulfilled in work. Gifted individuals often feel out of step with the world. They may have trouble finding like-minded people, be told they’re “too intense”, and feel socially awkward, frustrated that others can’t keep up, and disappointed with the world’s imperfections.  Learning about the complexity of being gifted can offer relief from self-doubt, loneliness, and depression.

I really love helping my clients find a path to greater joy, authenticity, and healthier and more harmonious relationships.  I believe that growth and change are possible throughout our lives, and that we each have within a natural drive to health and wholeness.  I help you connect to this inner resource, empowering you to make change and maintain it once therapy is complete.  I provide a safe, compassionate, and nonjudgmental setting for you to explore what’s troubling you.  Working collaboratively, we will uncover what’s holding you back, so you can develop new ways of relating to yourself and others, new options for unsatisfactory situations, and experience greater resiliency in facing ongoing challenges.
