"Therapy is the process of coming to a deeper understanding of ourselves and how we approach the world while contained in the therapeutic relationship. I aim to create a safe, compassionate, and collaborative space to explore why patterns of thinking and interacting have become painful. In my experience, this process leads to improved relationships and communication, greater confidence and enjoyment in life, relief from feeling stuck, strengthened coping skills to manage life stressors, and progress towards one's inherent potential to thrive.

"People often come to therapy because they feel stuck in their lives, are experiencing anxiety or depression and are struggling with personal and professional relationships. My style is warm, supportive and engaged. I believe that the more access we have to our authentic selves, the more we can live a life that is deeply fulfilling. We will work collaboratively to develop a relationship in which there is room to take risks and experience aspects of yourself that may have been previously unknown to you. You will gain valuable tools to help you reach your goals personally, creatively, and professionally."

"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.""

"Aren’t emotions the worst? You're chugging along in your routine that includes all the things you’re supposed to do to be healthy, happy and successful, and then boom! Overwhelming anger or despair pops up out of nowhere and knocks you on your ass, and despite your efforts, there is nothing you can do to stop it. You are extremely intelligent, highly disciplined; you don’t need any more self-care tips. What you do need is someone there when you feel out of control, who won’t be intimidated by how deeply you feel and who in fact relishes the opportunity to walk with you on this terrifying and exhilarating journey of being human."

"Trauma takes many forms; often in the guise of unprocessed grief and loss. Loss of employment, financial insecurity, divorce, separation, domestic violence and abuse; all must be mourned. We become stuck; often not understanding our own reactions to people, places and things. Our partners, children, colleagues and superiors can appear to feel unfairly entitled to what we have to offer. Our ability to tolerate distress is limited."

"Have you experienced events in your life that left you feeling scared, worried, and fearful about your safety and the future? If so, you may be suffering from trauma. As a trauma-focused practitioner, I have assisted children, teens, and adults in building resilience, finding hope, and improving their relationships with others. Many of my clients are victims and survivors of childhood trauma which can leave a person feeling detached and without the ability to set limits and boundaries in relationships. It is difficult for some to believe that the symptoms of today can be the result of a residual traumatic experience. However, it is my experience, that the implicit and explicit messages of our past have had a profound effect on our current thought processes and only until that is realized, can we evoke change. "
