I’m a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 15 years experience helping adults of all ages improve their relationships, overcome problems and get in touch with their values, hopes and dreams. As a proudly feminist, anti-racist and LBGTQ-affirmative* therapist, I’m passionate about hosting therapeutic conversations that explore the ways that culture impacts our experience. My work is influenced by Narrative Therapy, a trauma-informed therapy rooted in social justice values.


I’ve been a member of the Mental Health Professional Group of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine for over 10 years and have taught and presented on topics related to infertility and third party reproduction. From 2020-2021, I was a member of the MHPG Task Force on Diversity and Antiracism and went on to chair the MHPG Diversity, Inclusion and Anti-racism Committee in its first year. I currently serve on the Medical Advisory Board of The Sperm Bank of California.


I’m available to consult with mental health professionals and other health care providers on the psychosocial aspects of infertility, assisted reproduction and third party family building.

When I'm not working, I enjoy movies, art museums, hiking the Oakland Hills and reading fiction.


*The term “LGBTQ affirmative” has been used to identify therapists who support LGBTQ people, in opposition to the antiquated (and repugnant!) notion that LGBTQ identity is pathological. I strongly believe in going beyond “affirmation” and enthusiastically celebrating LGBTQ identities.
