I have the unusual work history of combining 21 years of work at Kaiser Oakland's Department of Psychiatry and being a personal and supervisory psychoanalyst at the Psychoanalytic Institute of Northern California.
Over 40 years of diverse practice has taught me that when people are in psychotherapy they create ingenious ways to grow, to resolve internal/social conflict and to improve their sense of personal fulfillment. They are innovative and sincere. Therapy is more than a serious, shared introspection. It is also a playful interaction. It usually involves a full range of emotions that includes a sharing of ideas and a mutual exchange, which almost always involves a lively conversation. There seems to be one common theme, namely that each person is seeking to find a sense of truth and well-being.

Welcome to my practice. I have about 15 years of clinical experience and have been featured on NBC/KCAL/HLN as an expert psychologist. I work primarily with men who have hit “rock bottom” and would like help getting up. These men are often in crisis when we first meet. The issues I address are typically related to unhealthy sexual behaviors, infidelity, financial recklessness, gambling, drugs/alcohol, dishonesty/lying, and relational conflicts. My therapy approach is a combination of psychoanalytic , cognitive-behavioral, and the 12-Step recovery model. I also share insight from my own painful but redemptive recovery journey.

My practice focuses on what is unique to your life experience through compassionate listening & careful attention to the thoughts, feelings, speech, & symptoms of past & present trauma. Those closest to us are not always able to make sense of our most intimate experiences, which can often become a source of distress. I create a safe space in which you can speak freely & elaborate on your concerns in finding the words that make sense of your suffering. I follow a psychoanalytic approach that explores your concerns in-depth, allowing you to be heard, seen, & understood in ways that are attuned to your life context & experiences.

I specialize in long term psychoanalytic psychotherapy and value empathy, understanding, and reflection in healing previously unmet relational needs.
Are you struggling with how childhood experiences, losses or trauma continues to influence your life? Are you discouraged at repeating difficult situations or find it hard to get out from under depression or anxiety? I'm glad to see how we can put our minds together to understand your dilemmas and see things differently. Change is possible no matter what your age or your life circumstances when you feel seen, accepted and appreciated for who you are and where you've been.

My clinical orientation is grounded in both Psychoanalytic and Attachment Theory.
I am a psychotherapist with offices in SF and Oakland, treating both adults and couples. I take a relational and collaborative approach to psychotherapy. We are all unique, consciously and unconsciously influenced by the relationships and life-events that leave a lasting impact on how we address our current situation. Difficulties can sometimes arise when the habitual thoughts, emotions, or behaviors that once served us now have us feeling stuck, depressed, and powerless. Fear, ambivalence, compulsivity and patterned thinking can hamper our ability to address the inevitable twists and turns of daily life.

My approach is psychodynamic/ psychoanalytic , meaning that you and I use the therapeutic relationship as a laboratory within which to facilitate the meaningful changes that will reconnect you with yourself, with life, and with the people around you.
Life is change and, mostly, you've been rolling with the punches. But complicated life transitions can leave anyone at a loss. You might feel helpless, hopeless and alone in trying to cope with relationship issues and troublesome or debilitating symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma, and obsessions. With more than 15 years of experience, I help adults and families like you navigate the turmoil of challenging life passages including death of a loved one, chronic or terminal illness, relationship issues, separation or divorce, or adjustments to a different job, culture, gender, or sexual orientation.

The question we struggle with is what's not working in my relationships, my work life, or myself? How does a person change so that you can get unstuck and pursue what is meaningful? These are the questions we'd explore and answer together. Through an appreciation of both conscious ideas and the pull of unconscious and historical forces, we would work to focus on what can be understood, what can be altered, and what must be accepted.

My training is in psychodynamic psychotherapy. However this is only short-hand for working with you in a deep and resonant way. I primarily work with adults and children but also treat dyads (parents and their children, friends, and couples). We will take into account the ways your past has shaped the present. While, at the same time concentrating on how you are living life now in relation to your family, your friends, your workplace, your community, and of course your innermost self.

Therapy is a deeply personal experience and there are as many reasons to seek therapy as there are people who seek it. Perhaps you are struggling with anxiety, depression, grief, or shame. You may have suffered traumas or losses and are wondering how these shape your thoughts, feelings and relationships. Maybe you simply have a sense that aspects of your life are not coming together in the ways you desire. Therapy is a space to explore these curiosities, to develop insight into your self, and, ultimately, to find greater fulfillment in your work, relationships, and play.

The people I work with are unsatisfied or struggling in key areas of their lives. They are challenged by unfulfilling relationships with co-workers, romantic partners, dating, friends, or family members. Some struggle with their career and creative pursuits, or with major life decisions. The difficulties they face tend to feel familiar; patterns they have not yet been able to fully understand or find their way out of on their own. Since patterns are formed by relationships early on in our lives, it takes a healing and generative relationship to make changes.

Many people seek therapy to alleviate painful symptoms and suffering. In my experience, insight about oneself can often be the best healer. And while therapy can lead to change, it can also bring the satisfaction of becoming even more fully oneself. My approach is warm, interactive, and non-judgmental. I strive to help you understand the meaning of your troubles and their origins, which may be familiar or altogether new to you. I welcome many forms of communication - although talking may be the primary vehicle for our explorations, much can be learned from the body sensations, images, and fantasies that appear in your sessions.

My practice focus includes treating children, teens, and families as well as adult individuals facing complicated emotional and behavioral conditions. How I work depends upon the circumstances bringing you to a psychotherapist as different problems and situations need different approaches. Every therapy is unique even if there are preferred methods and practices for treating anxiety, depression, and others. Each treatment is foremost a relationship. This often takes time to build, which may be a challenge when limited by schedules, insurance benefits, or circumstances. My goal is that psychotherapy is effective in addressing change in thinking and behavior, and that you find it helpful.

It is an inevitable part of being a woman (inclusive of any self-identifying woman) that we will go through significant transitions in our lives. It is in these moments we may feel called to live more in alignment with our purpose, and to find greater personal and spiritual fulfillment. However walking this path can feel isolating, and knowing how to begin the journey can feel overwhelming; stepping into the unknown often is. We are meant to have a traveling companion.

I am a psychologist and a certified Jungian analyst. I have been in private practice since 1979, initially as an MFT, then as a psychologist starting in 1989. I became certified as a Jungian analyst in 2010 after seven years of training at the C.G. Jung Institute in San Francisco. It is my privilege to work with many different people, those coping with uncertainties and ambiguities of life transitions, those who suffer a range of painful symptoms such as anxiety, depression, grief, addictions, trauma, divorce, identity issues, spiritual crisis. I value depth, difference and relationship.

Life will present us now and then with the unexpected.  This clearly is a time of major change for all of us. Not all of this is new nor is it novel. Even in the most normal of times we often do experience unwelcome events, the loss of a loved one, disability, addiction, economic insecurity, loneliness. To live is perhaps also to suffer. But we need not suffer alone. You will find me to be a compassionate, capable psychotherapist. Working together, I can help you to live a happier, more contented and fulfilling life. So then, where are you now? Where would you like to go from here? Would you like to create a new narrative?
