I believe that effective psychotherapy enables clients to take control of their own feelings and behavior by gently uncovering the connections between past experiences and current difficulties. Positive change occurs in an atmosphere of responsibility and hope, and a respectful, dedicated therapist can effectively guide this process. I integrate straightforward communication and empathy in the context of steady, clear boundaries. Psychological services for children and adults include psychodynamic therapy, play therapy, and family court related interventions.

I specialize in the following areas: Individuals, all ages Couples; pre-marital counseling; marital adjustment; midlife shifts New mothers and infants; Postpartum Depression Gifted Children Families Women's groups Successful coping for wellness: stress, weight management; sleep issues Spiritual/Religious Issues Trauma Chronic Illness.
I believe successful therapy relies on the professional therapist's core knowledge and listening skills. Both are needed to pay depth of attention to your perspective with a caring therapeutic ear. I listen well, draw from theory and practical experience to understand what my client is experiencing. I also consider what social pressures or situations impact your thinking/emotional states and what therapeutic approach might be most helpful. I take into account the client's unique human diversity, level of personal development, consciousness and, if applicable, spirituality. Together, we select the most desired and achievable goals as the therapeutic focus of our time together.

I specialize in supporting families and couples who are working to resolve family conflicts, or to address trauma that is disrupting family relationships and interfering with healthy family functioning.
I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist working in Oakland, CA. I have broad professional experience as a mediator, conflict management consultant, educator, and trainer. I bring the skills I've acquired in these roles to my therapy work. We humans are adaptive beings. When we adopt behaviors and mindsets that do not serve us, we may feel stuck, fearful, or intensely unhappy. Thankfully, we can modify our thinking and behaviors to promote a life of growth, happiness and healthy relationships. I provide skilled support to help repair troubled relationships and re-route unproductive thinking and behavior patterns.

I have a passion for working with individuals, couples and families to explore the deeper issues and create a happy and fulfilling life for themselves.
Relationships are critical for our survival in life. The quality of our relationships determine the quality of our lives. Such relationships, that are so important and yet at times seem so hard to achieve, include husband-wife, parent-child, teacher-student, and employer-employee or any other significant relationship. Our life journey can become complicated, however, we are much more in control of our lives than we realize. Taking more effective control means making better choices as you relate to others around you, as most of our struggles in life are a result of unsatisfying relationships.

I use a blended approach to meet each client’s unique needs, drawing from psychodynamic, CBT, brief models, family systems and play therapy.
One of the amazing aspects of therapy is that it provides a unique opportunity for people to have a space where the focus is on their needs and growth. Very few other spaces exist where your needs and well-being can be the priority. This is a key part of the healing power of therapy, which is why I believe it is so important you find a therapist who is a good fit for you.

I work with individuals, couples, and families , providing support with high-functioning anxiety, mental/emotional suffering, relationship difficulties, life transitions, daily stress, and unhealthy behavior patterns.
With great courage and a sense of curiosity, you’ve already taken the hardest step towards feeling better—reaching out for help. Maybe you’ve been feeling "stuck" or overwhelmed? Perhaps you and your significant other find it difficult to communicate each other's feelings and needs. Or maybe you're trying to make sense of a life experience and don’t know where to start. I would like to reassure you, you don’t have to endure the pain or confusion alone. We, as humans, have all experienced moment(s) in life where we feel disconnected from our true selves and even our loved ones. Sometimes we just need some support along the way.

Despite our best efforts, sometimes it just doesn’t seem like life goes quite the way we planned. Family /relationship conflicts, worry about a child’s choices/behaviors, feelings of overwhelm/anxiety, grief/loss or a major life transition are often a part of our lives. And, unfortunately, sometimes these events are compounded by a lack of support or critic voices. Although it may not feel like it, I truly believe we are all doing the best we can in any given moment with the tools & information we have at that time and am passionate about supporting you in discovering your strengths and new strategies to create the changes you seek.

My practice is rooted in the belief that there is power in knowing and telling your own story. Who are you? Where did you come from? What's important to you? Let's work together to untangle your story, identify your strengths, goals, passions, and barriers; and make you the author of what comes next. I work with people who want to make positive changes, but feel paralyzed by stress, fear, indecision, or old habits. I can also help you learn concrete strategies for managing uncomfortable thoughts, emotions, transitions, health conditions or problematic relationships.

Do you feel weary of the constant parade of "failed" relationships that show up in your life? Would you like to discover the secret to attracting and keeping a healthy committed relationship? If you answered "yes" to these questions, you have come to the right place. I have 25 years of experience in helping people just like you to understand how the patterns of unhealthy relationships are laid down very early in life. Relationships are like a "dance" in which each partner performs their "steps". Becoming aware of your "steps" means you can change them, and reap amazing rewards.
