As a therapist for over thirty years, the focus of my work is helping people to create and sustain healthy relationships, and to learn how to thrive in their lives. I listen carefully to the nuances of what you say and don't say, and help you to become more aware of your unconscious beliefs and the energy that you hold in your body that may be an obstacle to your creating the life and relationships that you yearn for. Together, we take the journey of understanding and resolving what is in your way, so that you can discover new pathways to live your life with more joy, ease and connection.

I offer a nurturing and accepting space to begin a journey of personal and relational growth. I have experience providing therapy for individuals, couples, and families. Mood disturbances (such as depression), anxiety, trauma symptoms, and relational issues are my specialty. I work from a systems perspective and address problems with consideration of contextual and cultural factors. My extensive experience in working with a variety of populations within community mental health makes me especially effective with those new to or hesitant to start therapy.

I am a licensed psychotherapist providing holistic counseling to individuals and couples. My practice is presently focused on helping clients work through feelings of anxiety or fear that can arise during important life transitions such as: getting married, becoming pregnant, becoming new parents, blending families and facing separation or divorce. You may feel a sense of instability during such major life changes and it is my goal to help ground you by identifying what you need while accessing your inner strengths and resources. I create a safe and non judgmental space for you to do this important work.

Do you often feel ashamed and not good enough, even though others think you have it all together? Do you find yourself caring for those around you, all the while wondering when it will be your turn to get what you need? Does the intensity of your negative feelings sometimes scare you?

I believe that our minds and hearts, like our bodies, possess an innate wisdom and ability to heal, given the right environment and structure. Sometimes we get stuck in old patterns and beliefs that helped us in the circumstances we learned them in, but need to be updated in order to allow us to fully embody our best, most authentic and empowered selves. Therapy can assist us in learning more about what automatic programs our system is running, and give us the tools to make these changes.

I hold a belief that every individual I come across holds within him/herself the power to heal. My role is to help those individuals access their power when they feel they have none. I specialize in the treatment of trauma and anxiety disorders and I am passionate about bringing a sense of hope and empowerment to the individuals I serve. My hope is that individuals will learn to embrace their power, learn to be at ease in their own skin and find loving and fulfilling connection to others; bringing them closer to their personal healing and, ultimately, to the life they dream of living.

I am drawn to support clients heal the anxiety, guilt and shame from trauma. This may include trauma related to abuse, bullying, accidents, harassment, religious impositions, discrimination, and more. My clients often want to feel less anxiety, better manage their triggers, enjoy sexual intercourse with their partner(s), and redefine themselves from the trauma they experienced. Grounding techniques, challenging learned beliefs, asserting needs, and living more for self, are common themes in my practice and essential for post-traumatic growth. Integrating identities (e.g. race, ethnicity, sexuality, etc.) is common in my practice.

A satisfactory relationship to one's self is the most significant element in finding a way through life's challenges. Sometimes this pathway feels chaotic, confused, conflicted, or just not strong enough. Sometimes life experiences overwhelm our capacities to contain and reflect on their meaning for us in a way that keeps us from our potential as persons, as partners, or as an employee/job holder. Therapy offers an opportunity to listen to yourself in an uniquely individual, finely-tuned, non-judgmental way. Fears, sadnesses, and blocked places may all find they have something important to reveal to us when explored in a therapeutic relationship.

I work with individuals and couples who are trying to understand both their inner psychological issues and their responses to complex and stressful outer lives. I listen for the strengths each person has for meeting challenges, and listen also for the ways clients create losses for themselves. Within a warm, caring, reliable working relationship clients have the opportunity to more deeply value themselves and to grow interpersonally.

Empathy is a must! My work is grounded in the therapeutic relationship as a space that, first of all needs to be an empathic place, where you as a client feel seen, heard, understood and supported as you tap into yourself, what drew you into therapy at this time & where you want to understand and grow. I draw from intuition and insightful engagement utilizing a strong theoretical background, tools and psychological understanding to empower you as you move into your heart for healing, find your hope and dreams, and step into greater self-understanding, self-care, connections with love, work & life & overall wellbeing.

Welcome. I do this work because I care deeply about healing through connection and compassionate relationships. I love working with people so they can learn about themselves, challenge old stories that may no longer serve, and ultimately live more authentic lives. Each of us is strong, powerful and beautiful, with unique gifts to offer this world. Yet sorrow is real, and having a safe and compassionate space to address grief, transition, relationship issues, trauma, anxiety, depression, addiction, and questions about gender and sexuality is fundamental and healing.

My clients are generally successful in life except for one thing - an old trauma gets triggered often enough to interfere with being fully happy and realizing important goals. The EMDR modality I practice along with traditional talk therapy can resolve the core trauma problem. Sometimes my clients experience various types of anxiety that are not trauma related but interfere with freely participating in life. For general anxiety our therapeutic relationship is the basis for talking through the problems consistently to get more insight. We can develop a plan to tackle the unique symptoms through appropriate supportive resources.

I enjoy working with a diverse range of people who are dealing with a broad spectrum of life experiences. I particularly love working with people inside the LGBTQ+ family. I help people navigate through many things including life transitions, anxiety, relationship dynamics and family of origin conflict. My ideal client is someone that is ready to engage in therapy with openness, curiosity, and vulnerability. You are ready to build a therapeutic collaboration to explore, process, and challenge yourself for growth. You are interested in learning ways to do or see things, or are curious about why things happen as they do.

What type of Berkeley mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Berkeley?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
