A Bit About Me

Hi, I’m KK, a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist. I utilize my experience as a psychotherapist, a former tech executive, and a queer woman to support clients with challenges like impostor syndrome, burnout, career disillusionment/layoff grief, substance concerns, internet/gaming addiction, body image struggles, perfectionism, work/life balance and navigating interpersonal dynamics at work and at home. I also treat common mental health struggles like depression, anxiety and trauma. I am especially passionate about working with queer folx and women in the tech industry. 

My style is warm and down to earth, personable yet direct, and is especially helpful for clients who may be anxious about starting therapy, or who may have had negative mental health experiences in the past. Perhaps you are one of the many Californians who have recently experienced a job layoff and you are struggling with feelings of grief or identity loss. Or you might just be feeling burnt out, disillusioned and cut off from yourself and the world around you. My goal as your therapist is to recognize your unique potential as a person and as a professional (even if you are struggling to!) and to help you reach it. In session, I offer both space for deep reflection and pragmatic skills for navigating life more successfully. Therapy is a big investment in time and resources, but it can pay tangible, long term dividends in all areas of your life. So congratulations on taking this step!


I offer individual psychotherapy in person in San Francisco and via Telehealth throughout California. To learn more about me and my approach please reach out for a free 15 minute consultation.
