I have great compassion for the human struggle and I don't want you to feel alone with it.... It's far easier with another person who cares and understands. I've spent my whole life studying psychology: Formally, at Stanford (BA), at UC Berkeley (MA, PhD), and ongoing Continuing Education; informally, from colleagues, clients, and 20+ years in private practice. I enjoy working with people from all walks of life. I'm open, empathic, authentic, interested and interactive. I like helping people with relationship difficulties, life transitions, anxiety, grief, self-criticism, social inhibitions, and emotional trauma, abuse, or neglect.

Living a life that feels true to ourselves may take additional support and understanding. Sometimes life becomes overwhelming, either because we are faced with trauma, loss, illness and other transitions, or because we are experiencing unexplained feelings that are keeping us in a stuck place. I would like to work together with you to help you better understand yourself and create the changes that you want to see in your life. My style is relational and authentic. I want you to feel supported and better able to become who you want to be. I use mindfulness and CBT when helpful.

I work with people who are suffering and are looking to better understand why they feel the way they do. My clients are open to exploring the role that internal unconscious forces, as well the role that the social environment, play in how they experience themselves and others. Long term psychotherapy is not only beneficial for dealing with suffering. Once a person has made progress with the primary life concerns, room is created for expansive growth, including the attainment of goals, and I believe that it is equally important to go through this process accompanied.

You might be grappling with grief, stress, relationship troubles, or a separation and the aftermath of loss. Maybe you're an adult who was once a neglected or traumatized kid, trying to have close relationships. Or you're a teacher with intense perfectionism, an artist whose self-criticism blocks creative projects, or an athlete plateauing in sport. Maybe you're a therapist struggling to navigate her personal history and clinical work, or a white person wanting to address racism and privilege. Coping mechanisms like food, alcohol, exercise, are your "game face," but you wish you could let people know the real you.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist with many years of experience working with children, adolescents, and their families, as well as adults. My interventions are heavily rooted in behavioral therapy and evidence-based practices including feminist and attachment theories. However, I tend to conceptualize clinical presentations from a multicultural and social justice perspective. While I employ empirically validated treatments to ignite change, I am also of the belief that there is no single story to any individual. Consequently, it is important to understand the social, cultural, political, and spiritual context of each individual.

Since 1989, I have been helping people uncover, explore, and work through barriers to authenticity and aliveness. Together, we bring into awareness the thoughts and feelings that can interfere with being more fully engaged with yourself or others. You may feel that you don't know yourself or can't be yourself; that decisions are difficult to make or impossible to follow through on; or that connections with others are empty or unsatisfying. Taking a closer look at what's getting in the way can make a difference.

Anxiety is the most common mental health problem, with an estimated 18% suffering from anxiety disorders at any one time. Fortunately, anxiety disorders are one of the most researched areas of mental health and have numerous treatments with strong research showing its effectiveness. Anxiety can come in many different forms from specific phobias to an inability to stop worrying about most everything. Anxiety can cause physical illness, pain, difficulty sleeping, weight gain, distress in relationships with partners, children, or parents, and can have a profoundly negative effect on work and school.
