I also assist individuals in life transitions, including adjustment to chronic pain syndromes and health challenges.
We all want to be happy, or at least free from emotional pain . If you're here, something in your life is causing emotional discomfort--and some part of you senses an invitation to explore your inner and relational worlds with understanding and compassion. I help adults and adolescents deal with obstacles to their preferred lives--unwanted symptoms, relationship challenges, difficulty adjusting to change and loss. My goal is to reinforce your strengths, while co-discovering with you new solutions to the issues blocking growth. I offer a creative and practical style, drawing on approaches specifically tailored to your needs.

Living with medical illness can bring stress and suffering on many levels, to the patient and caregivers. I work with my clients, consulting with their medical team as appropriate, to address this suffering in a holistic manner, keeping the client's priorities and definition of quality of life front and center.

Use words, imagery, movement to help people with illness and healing, surgery, life changes, loss, marriage and relationships, meaningful work, a life of meaning and purpose, spirituality.
I'm a very experienced psychotherapist with over 30 years experience in many settings. I'm warm and compassionate, but also practical. I work from a growth model that helps you access your own wisdom and make a commitment to change. My background in the arts and Jungian psychology attunes me to the dreams and imagery that can inform you about your life course, but I also help you bring these dreams into action. My experience with mind/body can help you prepare for and recover from surgery, develop resilience, stress reduction, confront mortality and life changes, find meaningful work, and appreciate relationships.

Any scary event or even a medical diagnosis can wreak havoc & any daily routine is quickly found unmanageable. If the physical body fails you, it affects your mood. If emotions are out of wack, it affects your health. Either way, you deserve to feel in control and you can reclaim control. The goal is to highlight your strengths and minimize or eliminate any obstacles to healthy wellness. A direct benefit of engaging in effective help elevates your protective factors against emotional decay now a known correlate with disease. Together we can restore a sense of control, balance, and develop your future goals. You deserve to be happy.

I provide psychotherapy to people who would like to find healing, happiness and peace in the midst of life’s challenges. Critical elements of my approach are deep and persistent compassion, acceptance, collaboration and partnership. My goal is to help you develop strategies and coping skills, cultivate new attitudes and increase insight while all along holding space to honor your journey and inner strengths. This is done by exploring the functions behind emotions, thoughts, behaviors and beliefs, all of which are valid and important, but can be difficult to interpret in the chaos of everyday life.

Therapy can be a source of tremendous relief and gratification. Unhappiness and anxiety that feel unbearable can lessen and disappear when you have someone who can help you understand the reasons for your suffering. A good therapist can also help you more easily get your mind off upsetting thoughts that preoccupy you. Or if you find yourself acting in self-defeating ways, studying it with a therapist can be of enormous help. Ideally, you will leave an initial consultation with a new way of thinking about the problem that brought you in.

Overwhelmed and feeling isolated? Stressed and not sure how to get relief? People are resilient and innately driven to lead their best lives. Sometimes we forget mental health and physical health are deeply entwined and everyone needs support to attain wellness. Perhaps now more than ever.

I treat adults as well as adolescents and children, most frequently through individual therapy. I also work with couples. I work with people with a wide range of problems and especially enjoy working with people experiencing anxiety in relationships or at work . I also enjoy working with people who are unhappy and don't know why, and people who are repeating self-defeating patterns they feel unable to change. Meeting with a well-trained and experienced therapist can be a powerful and effective way of strengthening one's confidence and developing a personal sense of control over one's life.

Are you finding that your relationships are not working so well? It can be your relationship to yourself (just not feeling good about your self), your relationship to work (such as difficulties with co-workers or a boss), or your relationships with your family and/ or partner or friends. I believe that we are always striving to move towards personal growth and health. Our work is to remove these blocks with compassion and understanding so that you can achieve the changes that you want to make. My style is an interactive,individualized one with warmth, support, insight and humor.

I am a compassionate and caring therapist with 30 years of experience. My first priority in therapy is to lower your distress and give you hope for the future. Together, we uncover the triggers and negative patterns that lead to your unhappiness, and then build a personalized "tool kit" of coping skills, specifically designed around your life challenges. By doing so, you develop a stronger sense of self and compassion for your suffering. With this new understanding, you learn to honor and listen to your authentic self, which is the ultimate key to happiness.

Despite huge advances in modern technologies to extend life expectancy and increase physical comfort we have made only modest progress in relieving human psychological suffering that manifests as mood disorders and anxiety. It appears that many of our attempts to "fix" ourselves frequently backfire. My approach is highly collaborative and uses the most up to date discoveries in the field of behavioral science to help you "have a mind without your mind having you". Together we can help you gain flexibility that reduces suffering and learn skills that increase values-based living.

Somatic Experiencing (SE) takes healing to a deeper level. Combined with 'top-down' approaches, SE helps identify strengths and intentions beneath painful survival patterns. Shame, fear and anger transform into vital life energy. Surviving becomes thriving. As a private practice psychotherapist based in SF & Marin, I primarily work with adults, but also love to assist children in the healing process.

I find that what brings people to psychotherapy is a personal struggle, feeling stuck or a sense that something is missing, though what specifically is missing may not be known. As a psychologist I work with feelings of frustration or disappointment that may be related to anxiety, fear or prior messages that keep us from achieving personal goals. I am experienced in working with lifes transitions, such as a change in career, becoming a parent, diagnosis of a chronic illness or retirement. I believe bringing these challenges into therapy can be both illuminating and helpful.

Sometimes there is a powerful link between pain in the body and the unconscious mind.
Psychotherapy offers help when you are struggling with something specific, or when you are feeling concerned about where your life is going in general. There may be patterns that you tend to repeat and wish to change. Common concerns include relationships, career, family, anxiety, depression, and childhood trauma. Depth-oriented therapy and psychoanalysis are approaches with transformative potential. They aim to go beyond immediate symptom relief to unlock your capacity to grow, and to live fully.
