Let’s be honest: you’ve always been a responsible adult, and now you’ve got a lot to manage! Between a demanding career and family needs, you’re feeling stressed, and life feels out of balance. It’s impossible to do it all, and nothing ever seems good enough. You feel alone and worried, and your social network isn’t able to provide you with the support that you need. Perhaps your sleep is problematic, or your energy is low. Maybe you’re feeling anxious, depressed, irritable, or having difficulty concentrating. You might be troubled by feeling that you're an ineffective partner or parent. Things will get better soon, right?

Welcome! I'm so glad you're here. I am passionate about working with couples (all configurations) and individuals in growing a greater sense of influence in their lives. Perhaps you struggle with anxiety, forming boundaries, managing your relationship to food or intimacy, or are wanting to know yourself better; perhaps you are a couple needing support with feeling seen or heard by each other, navigating a cycle of conflict, or preparing for an upcoming transition.

Many people find themselves with one hand tied behind their backs. They weren't taught or allowed as children to express what’s happening inside of them. Rather than showing any vulnerability, they're told to not feel, to act as if everything is fine. Given these messages, we can lose track of who we really are and what we really want. Unfortunately, this leaves many people with few ways to know their needs, wants, and conflicts when it comes to the most important parts of their lives: their relationships.

I work to build a warm, empathic relationship with my clients to create an environment where we can think together about the issues that bring you to therapy and how best to resolve them. I am informed by psychodynamic theory and utilize this rich tradition to explore unconscious defenses, maladaptive patterns, and underlying schemas that can cause a person to repeat problematic behaviors despite their best efforts to change. I also draw from Cognitive Behavioral and Mindfullness practices to support clients with acquiring the tools they need to make those changes.

I believe that therapy can be a catalyst not only for insight, but also for transformation. Life can be challenging, and at times, despite our best efforts we can feel stuck or lost. I strive to provide a calm and compassionate space where you can get in touch with what matters most to you, and use that as a guide to making changes in your life. I offer specific strategies and tools to help you change your relationship to difficult thoughts and feelings, and work collaboratively with you to take steps toward a life that is full of vitality and personal fulfillment. My style is warm and genuine, interactive, and culturally-sensitive.

I am passionate and committed to helping you break free from emotional eating and poor body image. Through my own recovery journey with emotional eating, I understand your journey very well and I'm here to tell you that there is relief in sight. This is not necessarily about getting skinny, losing weight or fitting into those size 6 jeans (though that could be a side effect). This is about letting your body recalibrate to it's natural weight by becoming a mindful, intuitive eater and healing the pain that caused you to overeat in the first place.

Each person is unique, therefore so are their concerns. I approach therapy based on the individuality of each adult, teen, and child, and their personal needs. Assisting you in working though thought patterns and feelings that are causing you distress is my goal. Being the parent of a tween/teen, you might find yourself looking for answers to questions that allude you. Often there are issues you would like to have a better understanding of, or a way to process them. I will assist you in finding the tools needed for you or your child to live a less stressful and more fulfilling life.

I believe life is a journey over mountains and through valleys. At any point along the way a large or small obstacle may seem to obstruct the path and potentially end one's journey. Learning techniques to go over or around obstacles can thus become a valued life skill. Helping people learn the skills to navigate through life's good and not so good times is what therapy is for.

We all get stuck sometimes, or find ourselves in places that push our limits. Perhaps you are grieving a loss, dealing with depression or anxiety, or navigating a life transition. Maybe you are trying to cope with collective challenges such as climate change or inequality. Therapy can help unravel harmful conditioning and create more choice and flexibility for new ways of being. I love working with young adults and also have specialty experience with grief, loss, chronic illness, and end of life. Regardless of what is bringing you here, I would be honored to support you in finding your way to more joy and aliveness.

Our relationships can be the most fulfilling part of our lives and, in moments, they can feel exhausting, specifically if you haven’t had the guidance in recognizing or communicating needs in relationships. As a result, one can feel overwhelmed by the constant misunderstanding they experience in relationships. Some of the patterns that may come up in relationships are attracting the same person that is anxious, distant or in general unable to be there for you. These patterns may lead to disappointment, disconnection and burn out of relationships.

The most important questions is: "What pain brought you here? What is the hardest issue for you to deal with?" The most important result of the first session is that you walk out feeling that I understand you and will be able to be your ally in working through your issues. In other words we need to like each other and you need to feel that I have the expertise to handle your problems and not judge you.

All life is a relationship. From our very first moments and onward, what happens in relationship teaches us about how to be in the world. We continually form certain core beliefs, ways of thinking, patterns of tension, and ways of moving our body that can be both healthy and limiting. Trauma, abuse, neglect, and other wounding contribute to how we form our relationship with the world and with ourselves. All of our past experiences have an impact on our present experience. Our day to day life can then be full of a sense of meaninglessness, emotional and physical pain, chronic anxiety, mistrust, or general unease.

Adolescents / Teenagers (14 to 19) Therapists
Adolescence describes the teenage years between 13 and 19 and can be considered the transitional stage from childhood to adulthood. However the physical and psychological changes that occur in adolescence can start earlier, and it can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can bring up issues of independence and self-identity. Sometimes teens may be experimenting with drugs and alcohol or sexuality. During this time, peer groups and external appearance tend to increase in importance.

For help with adolescents or for a Berkeley adolescent therapist these professionals provide help for adolescent development and adolescent education. They include adolescent therapists in Berkeley, adolescent psychologists, and adolescent counselors. They can help with adolescent behavior, adolescent learning and adolescent discipline.

Berkeley teen Therapists also provide help for troubled teens in Berkeley or troubled teen boys and girls. For parents of out-of-control teens, Berkeley therapists can help with communicating and understanding your teen. And therapists in Berkeley can help with teenager behavior and teen learning issues.
