Have you had a recent difficult or traumatic life experience that you can't recover from on your own? Did you grow up in a chaotic home where it felt hard to be seen or get your needs met? You may have felt an underlying anxiety and not enough soothing due to issues beyond your control. If you struggle in your current relationships and seem to experience too many painful feelings like fear, anger, sadness, shame, or guilt you probably have unresolved trauma, even if it doesn't seem to match your idea of what that is. I can help you overcome these damaging experiences and negative feelings so that you can feel more at peace inside.

I create a safe and warm container to help you explore the blocks and obstacles that are keeping you from knowing your joy and the truth of who you are. I believe that we all come into this life with a soul purpose, lessons to learn and gifts to offer. Yogis call this our Dharma. Dharma can be seen as our sacred duty, our purpose in the world. Our primary purpose is to find inner peace and joy. Each individual has their unique path and ways to find this state. Fear and doubt causes suffering and takes us away from our dharma. Trust and listening to inner wisdom brings us closer to it.

No one, no matter how much difficulty they are facing in their life, is broken. At some point in our lives, we may feel stalled, even hopeless. I work with anyone who finds themselves in emotional pain, who wants to live a life with a sense of satisfaction, vitality, and purpose. Anyone who has the slightest desire to move towards something fuller. One of my aims is to help clients discover what it is they feel is missing in their lives, what they'd like to change about their behavior, and to hone in on what matters most to them.

I am currently accepting child and adult clients in both San Francisco and Marin. In general, my approach is insight oriented, psychodynamic and solution based. My clients would say that I am excellent at understanding the complex dynamics of both psychological and interpersonal issues. I have excellent rapport with parents and understand that bringing a child into therapy can be a difficult decision. Therapy may be a longer-term process, or it may be brief to solve an immediate crisis. Working together, we can be successful with both approaches. I am also accepting Parent Coordination clients, and Co-Parent Counseling

We humans are wired for contact and connection. Yet sometimes we don't know how to develop the needed connections; relationship building and managing one’s life effectively can thus be both terrifying and exhilarating . Lack of healthy support and resultant traumas leave us depressed, anxious, isolated, or insecure, leading to addictions, obsessions and compulsions, poor communication, relationship difficulties, or general dis-ease in one’s life. Yet healing is possible, and finding a therapist with whom you resonate is crucial.
