It's another day feeling inundated by work and family demands. Working, parenting, and home schooling are three jobs you never thought you would be doing at the same time. Your sweet kid went to bed late last night again and woke up tired and complaining about everything. You worry she might fall behind in school or that she's developing bad habits. Your protectiveness and patience turns to irritation and you tell her to “Just stop!” She stays in her room for most of the day doesn’t say another word to you until dinner. You want what’s best for your kid. It’s confusing not knowing what just happened and why.

Life is inherently stressful and sometimes can feel overwhelming. Seeking guidance is a sign of strength and courage. We will work together first to address your current symptoms and alleviate your suffering. As you begin to feel better, we can then shift into working with longer term patterns and challenges. As you embark on this journey, I offer a mindful, compassionate and collaborative container for our process together.

We are living in unprecedented times that can feel quite surreal due to the corona virus pandemic. We don't know when life will return to normal or that that "normal" will even look like. This can be very unsettling and therapy can offer skills in coping and adaptation to what is. I work with adults of all ages who are in transition. How can we manage our expectations and the losses that come with an uncertain future? Is it possible to thrive during times of uncertainty? How do we develop resilience when so much is yet unknown. Is it healthy to feel traumatized or to feel frightened or angry? What can we do with those feelings?

Somatic Experiencing (SE) takes healing to a deeper level. Combined with 'top-down' approaches, SE helps identify strengths and intentions beneath painful survival patterns. Shame, fear and anger transform into vital life energy. Surviving becomes thriving. As a private practice psychotherapist based in SF & Marin, I primarily work with adults, but also love to assist children in the healing process.

I treat alcohol, drug, and eating problems, depression, dual-diagnosis, anxiety, trauma, bariatric surgery patients, and relationship issues. Adults and teenagers address how the use of substances, alcohol, drugs, food, impacts their lives in negative and unproductive ways. We seek solutions together to more satisfying lifestyles and relationships. I work with couples and individuals having difficulties in relationships, wanting to resolve problems rather than separating or divorcing as the only solution. I work to separate past hurts from present reality. As an Equine Specialist, I use horses and exotic animals as requested.

I think of therapy as like sanctuary - a place where there aren't distractions, where there is an opportunity to pay attention to what is important, in a spirit of kindness. Because of this, many individuals and couples find it to be enjoyable, and very relieving. Of course, since people do therapy to work on painful things, therapy itself isn't always easy. But at least things can be approached thoughtfully and skillfully, in a safe context, and this itself brings great benefits.
