It is during challenging times such as these when one is often afforded the greatest opportunity for growth, transformation, and healing. If you’re feeling lost, broken, or like you've exhausted your resources to cope with life, it may be a good time to start therapy. Whether you’re depressed, overwhelmed, or struggling in relationship, my goal is to use my seventeen plus years of experience as a psychotherapist to help you relieve suffering and arrive at a deeper understanding and appreciation for yourself. Pain is sometimes inevitable in life, but suffering need not be.

I have come to realization that we all need tools and guidance to navigate through life. As a therapist, I see myself as an ally who will help you to better understand your own choices and to cope with the changes in your life. As human beings, we value happiness, and we reject feeling sad, angry, nervous. As we experience these “negative feelings “, we become frustrated with ourselves, even angry. Nobody wants to be anything but happy. What if we were able to accept those “other feelings” for what they are...Therapy helps to better understand the moments in which changes seem overwhelming and unnecessary. Therapy helps to simply “sit with those feelings”, no judgement; just observing. I can help you to be in a place in your life where you can feel more comfortable with who you are, where you can become more aware of your capacities and more accepting of your own struggles. You are the expert on your own life. My job is only to assist you through therapy in your journey to self discover, acceptance and letting go.....

In short though, if we work together we would explore the dynamic terrain of your relationships - your relationships to your emotions, your thoughts, your behavior, to your idea of self, and to others. This is done in a relationship of genuine curiosity and compassion, so that change, in place of judgement, is fostered. Eventually, this productive and curious environment or relationship that we foster together, can be internalized and taken with you as a tool for your life journey.

Beginning therapy is not easy. Finding the right therapist in San Francisco can feel daunting. Examining one’s difficulties requires courage and resolve. Feelings of reluctance and apprehension are common and understandable. But, therapy is a long-term investment in yourself and in your desire to live a fuller, more satisfying life. With a lot of effort and patience, the therapeutic process can pays off. If you’re interested in starting therapy I recommend we have two or three initial meetings to see how it feels to talk and think together.

Each moment in life offers us the chance to become the fullest expression of who we really are. In therapy I help to hold a space where we can explore anything that might be keeping you from that fullest expression. This might mean finding a deeper connection between your mind and body. It might mean getting a new perspective on some of the stories you have been telling yourself. It might mean consciously having a different experience here than you have had in other situations in life.

Therapy begins with curiosity and a willingness to explore difficult emotions or areas that keep you stuck. Building a trusting relationship with a therapist in a warm, supportive environment is crucial to making the changes you want. Using a collaborative approach, we'll work to understand what is getting in the way of making positive change. I believe that each of my clients is the expert on their own experiences and I work to make you feel supported and heard, while helping you to shine a light onto things that are not serving you - limiting beliefs, negative patterns, or unhealthy relationships with yourself or others.
