I provide psychoanalytic psychotherapy for children, adolescents, and adults. Psychotherapy is a deeply personal and intimate undertaking that allows us to privately express, explore, and make sense of our lives and histories. I offer a style that is down-to-earth, thoughtful, practical, and collaborative. Because each person seeks out therapy for different reasons and brings a complex history, I tailor each treatment to meet your unique needs, goals, strengths, and preferences.

Life is harder than expected at times. Transitions, loss, trauma, persistent anxiety or depression, or a feeling that things will never change are just a few examples of the ways in which people can feel less hopeful about their lives. Psychotherapy is a tool that can alleviate the stressors of everyday life, improve one's sense of well being and connection with others and enhance one's self understanding. Over time it can also lead to a greater sense of competency and satisfaction in the world.

You look around, the common culture doesn't reflect your ethnicity, gender expression, ability, or sexual orientation. You don't fit into a neat little box. The stress of not fitting in, or having to explain or feel guilty for who you are has taken over. Is this how it's gonna be for the rest of my life? - you wonder...and it makes you tired. My clients come to me to overcome doubt, build confidence. I use techniques to help them slow down and listen to their inner voice so it's so loud and clear that anxiety has no room to stay.

I've been treating adults, couples, families, and groups in CA since 1993 (and earlier, children, teens, families, university employees, addictions and psychiatric illness, back east 1985-93). My post-grad training was in Berkeley at The Psychotherapy Institute (long-term psychodynamic) and UCB Counseling & Psychological Services (brief and long-term). Recently I worked at San Francisco Kaiser treating adults, young to elderly, with a full spectrum of mental health and medical concerns. Based on my clinical background, I tailor therapy to your present experience, future hopes, and past conditioning so you can move forward, potentially even be "self-therapeutic."

I view therapy as a collaborative process where we work together to understand the challenges you are facing. My initial goal is to provide empathy and relief, while working in the longer term to help you feel more open and able to access parts of your experience that may be hidden. This can be scary and vitalizing, and I view work with each client as a unique journey where the path to healing unfolds over time. For me, the ultimate goal of therapy is to help you both accept and challenge yourself, and thereby become more fully who you are.
