    Ryan’s compassionate approach to therapy leaves judgement at the door to guide her clients toward positive growth and transformational healing. Specializing in resolving challenges within relationships, Ryan supports adults across all stages of life in self-empowerment, boundary setting, grief/loss, and developing healthier communication. Ryan also skillfully helps clients process issues related to infertility, women’s mental health, and motherhood.

    For the past decade, Ryan has worked in the human services field, supporting individuals, families, and couples to heal from traumatic experiences and become empowered to navigate life’s challenges. While serving diverse populations through nonprofit work at domestic violence women’s shelters, juvenile halls, public schools, and foster youth and family centers, she has become adept at navigating the challenges that come with involvement in systems and generational traumas.

    Ryan’s therapeutic philosophy is person-centered and strengths-based, meaning she will partner with you in identifying your inner wisdom and core strengths to help you make deeper connections with yourself, your faith, and others. She practices evidenced-based treatments grounded in cognitive behavioral and solution-focused theories to help you achieve your goals. Ryan strives to ensure that clients feel safe and heard, as this is paramount to healing parts of the self that may be broken and moving towards achieving wholeness and inner peace.

    Outside of her practice, Ryan is family focused and has a heart for the great outdoors. She enjoys hiking, reading, practicing yoga, a good cup of coffee, and exploring all that the Bay Area has to offer.
