I run a small agency, Blackbird Family Therapy, Inc., that helps clinicians in private practice work with clients traditionally served only by community mental health services. 

Blackbird Family Therapy, Inc. provides free therapy to adults and children who have witnessed or experienced violent crimes such as child abuse, sexual assault and rape, stalking, domestic violence, homicide, and gang violence. We work extensively with children in foster care. We also train people who work in law enforcement and caring professions to effectively handle the stress of their work.

In my private practice, I provide child, adult, and couples counseling, Somatic Experiencing, and EMDR for PTSD, child abuse, and domestic violence in Oakland.

* Find and maintain loving relationships
* Handle grief, loss, anxiety, depression, and trauma
* Heal from domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, or combat trauma
* Manage divorce, chronic illness, and career problems
* Navigate foster care, group homes, family reunification, and adoption
* Recover from sexual addiction or problem gambling


I provide clinical consultation, and work with clients, around the following therapeutic techniques and clinical concerns:


+ Somatic Experiencing

+ Severe Trauma

+ PTSD, anxiety disorders, panic attacks, phobias, depression, bipolar disorders, dissociative disorders

+ Child and Family Therapy

+ Couples Therapy

+ Sex Addiction

+ Problem Gambling
