About

I work with a wide range of clients. Those confronting transitions, relationships problems, career concerns, addictions, student concerns and other challenges. Depression, anxiety, stress or addictive behaviors are usually the first step in a journey to self-discovery. I create a nurturing, supportive and warm space for my clients to examine their relationships, the impacts of their family environments, thought patterns and dreams. I help my clients understand concessions they may have been made in their original family enabled adaptation, but may later interfere with their fulfillment. Together we create new stories with happier endings.
I have been in practice in Palo Alto, California for thirty years. I see individuals, couples, families and groups. My approach integrates Jungian, Cognitive, Psychodynamic, Buddhist and other theoretical perspectives. I create a new therapy for each client in order to evoke his or her underlying special and unique personality.
I welcome the opportunity to work with dreams, fairy tales and the inner world. I believe creativity is the highest form of defense against psychological pain, and encourage my client's self expression. I frequently provide crisis interventions, trainings, and management consultations within many Silicon Valley Corporations.
