MFT / MFC 39821

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I work with adult individuals and couples seeking to develop fuller understanding of themselves and their relationships. I have been in private practice since 2009.

I worked in community-based mental health agencies for 20 years. For most of those years, I directed a program offering long-term individual and family therapy to children who were dependents of the court.

I received a bachelor of arts degree in Spanish philology from the Universidad de Costa Rica and a master's degree in feminist psychology from New College of California in San Francisco. I completed the two-year supervision study program from The Psychotherapy Institute in 2009. I am in the second year of an intensive study program in psychoanalytic couple psychotherapy (PCPG).

I am a member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists, a community member of the Northern California Society for Psychoanalytic Psychology, and a board member of The Psychotherapy Institute, where I am also part of the supervising faculty. I am licensed with the California Board of Behavioral Sciences.


My office is located in Emeryville, just three blocks west from the corner of San Pablo Ave and Powell St. (Stanford Ave.)
