Hello, I'm Xana.

(pronounced Shawna)

I am a Relational Psychotherapist, based in Pacifica and San Francisco, California. 

I work with adults, couples and adolescents. 


I received my MA in Integral Counseling Psychology from the California Institute of Integral studies and completed my graduate training at the Integral Counseling Center at Church Street. I practice trauma informed, Relational Therapy. 

I'm very happy to now be  working with the Center for Mindful Psychotherapy, offering therapy via HIPPA compliant video conferencing and telephone.  

How I work

As a relational therapist, I bring a trauma informed approach of steady, compassionate understanding & open curiosity. With careful attention and listening, I work to support your awareness, sense of aliveness and agency

I specialize in anxiety & depression, grief & loss, relationship & attachment issues, parenting/co-parenting & misattunement. 

I work in humanistic, client centered modalities that include 

mindful & awareness-based self-exploration
