"I work especially well with adults who were impacted by their parents' substance use or an unpredictable, neglectful, or traumatic environment, and who may now be in some kind of recovery/deconditioning process themselves. Couples and families are welcome. My clients want to overcome anxiety and relationship struggles; achieve emotional stability, presence, acceptance and peace; and experience more choice and less habituation with behaviors. For Adult Children identified clients, some particular themes they often want to attend to are "not good enough" beliefs; perfectionism; over-responsibility; shame; depression; and a stressed response to authority, to disagreements, and to unexpected changes."

"I work with clients at my office in Oakland near the Rockridge Bart Station. I prefer to work with a client who will come to sessions even when it is challenging to do so and allow the therapy relationship to open up space for safe exploration of the realities of life, ways to cope with reality, and improve spiritual and mental strength. Therefore, my client would demonstrate commitment to the therapy relationship, whether it is for brief therapy or long-term work, by doing the work necessary to understand the self and make necessary life decisions in order to maximize the availability of life energy."

My approach is eclectic and tailored to each individual's needs to facilitate healing and growth. Through my years of experience I have witnessed over and over again people coming into therapy with great pain, discomfort and despair but with time, (sometimes within a very short time) their symptoms diminish and a whole new person emerges. Crisis times can be extremely painful and distressful but they can also be opportunities for growth and healing through therapy."

"We all have our own unique truths. As we live as human beings, however, we tend to be disconnected from our truths in order to physically and emotionally survive in the world. Ironically, the more we push our truths away in order to be "alive" in the world, the more "dead" we feel in our bodies. When we have the courage to pause and deeply feel ourselves, we begin to notice that something most important has been missing from our lives. If you have ever experienced this sense of something missing, you may have arrived on the right page. "

"I specialize in serving GIFTED PROFESSIONAL AND CREATIVE ADULTS AND COUPLES. Being gifted is a minority experience, which is hard to own or talk about due to cultural (mis)attributions of elitism and arrogance, so many gifted people have not explored this aspect of their identity and how this may be related to difficulties in their life. You may feel out of step with the world or misunderstood, and not know why, or that you have to hide aspects of yourself. Or have trouble making friends, be told you’re "too intense", feel socially awkward, not understand why others seem to respond negatively to your ideas, or feel deeply disappointed with the world’s imperfections. IN MY OFFICE, YOU CAN BE UNRESERVEDLY YOURSELF. Talking frankly about being gifted can improve your self-esteem and offer relief from self-doubt, loneliness, anxiety, or depression, as you develop strategies to meet the majority culture more effectively. Before becoming a psychologist, I worked for 25 years in startups, nonprofits, academia, and F500 companies. I hold a Stanford MBA and Berkeley MSEE, and have special training in assisting gifted clients. I've also published research on the creative process."
