Hello Thank you for visiting my website. I’m a board-certified  psychologist with a private practice in San Francisco and Burlingame. I have 16+ years clinical experience in working with children, adolescents and adults in Bay Area. 

Along with my private practice, as a psychologist, I've worked with both children, teens and adult professionals in a variety of settings including community mental health centers, family shelters, schools, and universities. I started my private practice in San Francisco since 2010. 

I feel so blessed to have worked with so many persons with strength, courage and resilience.

I work in San Francisco financial district and Burlingame downtown. Many of my clients in San Francisco are adult professionals. Many of my clients in Burlingame are youth and young adult professionals. I also work with a couple and parents.

Trauma can manifest itself in many forms and can be the result of direct attacks on a person or simply witnessing another being subjected to violence.

  • The different types of trauma
  • The aftermath and how it affects you
  • The relationship between trauma and addiction

  • Ways to assist the healing of trauma
  • Mindfulness and meditation and how they can help
  • And much more…
