I am also trained in EMDR therapy for healing trauma, a therapy that processes 'frozen' experiences that are still causing problems and integrates new ones that enhance healthy functioning.
Personal issues often show up in relationships where we get caught in freeze, fight, or flight reactions. Friendships, colleagues, family, and intimate partners are our best mirrors leading to effective personal work in therapy. My experiential three-fold model of problem solving integrates mind, body, and emotions. We begin with the description of a problem or struggle, identify associated emotions, and locate the way the issue is held somatically. This may develop into a visual or symbolic representation with which one can dialogue, apply insight, antidote and release, or reveal deeper targets that need to be reprocessed.

In addition to psychodynamic treatment and effective cognitive behavioral approaches for anxiety and depression symptoms, I have specialty training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing ( EMDR ), an empirically validated method for trauma.
Welcome to my practice. Trained at the The Wright Institute in Berkeley, my approach emphasizes compassion, collaboration, and evidence-based treatment. I view my role as posing questions or reflections that will help you think your way through challenges and open up new possibilities.

I use EMDR , somatic, & emotion-focused therapies that go underneath the surface and get you unstuck.
You have tried everything—done all the yoga, lifted all the weights, read Brené Brown’s books, but none of it feels like enough. There is still that thing (or things) that keeps coming up and gets in the way of you living your best life. Perhaps you are still full of anxiety or quick to anger even though you’re meditating every morning. Maybe you’re drinking too much, feel disconnected in your relationships, or just can’t seem to find the right relationship—whatever it is, you feel trapped in this cycle and recognize that you might need some help getting out of it. If this is resonating, you are not alone AND there is hope.

EMDR is used to bypass painful memory recall.
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 work relationally with an attachment focus and incorporate mindfulness, behavioral and experiential approaches as well as EMDR for trauma resolution.
There are times when we can feel overwhelmed in our life and our usual coping skills are not enough. We may be struggling in our relationships, work, with addictive behaviors or just a general sense of unhappiness or anxiety. Individual or couples therapy can help. I have a warm, collaborative and interactive approach to help you uncover the roots of the issue and help you heal and change the patterns that are blocking you from feeling a sense of connection and joy in your life, work and relationships.

I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing ( EMDR ), Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and utilize these as practical tools to reduce stress and recover from trauma.
Therapy provides an opportunity to better understand ourselves and our experiences. You may be feeling stuck in old patterns, ready for a change, but unsure where to start. You may be struggling with new symptoms after a recent life transition or traumatic event. You may just need a space to be yourself and be heard. As a therapist I am direct, compassionate, and practical. My goal is to help clients gain a sense of balance and fulfillment in their lives. I work collaboratively with clients to explore areas of change, gain insight into patterns, develop practical strategies, and improve relationships with self and others.

Areas in which I have experience and success are: anxiety, depression, ADHD, (both with children and adults) relationship problems, trauma(using EMDR ), drug and/or alcohol abuse, grief and loss for adults and children.
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.

My specialty is EMDR therapy which uses eye movements or tapping, to activate both your "thinking" and "feeling" brain to resolve issues in a new, more balanced way.
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.

I am also trained in EMDR trauma release.
Does this describe your current state? You are feeling stuck during a difficult life transition, or realize that you have to resolve issues that you have been carrying with you. Or, you are the parent of a teen who is struggling and your family needs professional support to gain ground at this time. Your teen son or daughter could use a compassionate and skilled guide through the turbulent time of adolescence. If you, or your teen, has a trauma to be resolved, are stuck in your life circumstances, or in feelings that are overwhelming, then you have found help! Living a full, healthy life is possible!

I use CBT and mindfulness to help clients learn how to notice their thoughts and feelings, challenge distortions and shift perspective; EMDR therapy gets to the root by processing disturbing memories that have lead to negative beliefs.
I help clients of all ages process and heal from traumatic experiences; these are things that happened earlier in life that may have been overwhelming and created false, negative core beliefs about oneself, others, and the world. Beliefs such as “I’m not good enough, I can’t trust people; I'm not safe” can significantly impact how a person feels, thinks and reacts to the world, and lead to issues such as depression, anxiety, and substance abuse. I help clients process those experiences, transforming the negative beliefs into positive, helpful ones. This allows clients to experience more joy and ease in their life and relationships.

I believe that feeling safe is the most necessary factor for us to create change in our lives. Each of us deserves to feel valued for who we are. Often our life experiences, beginning in childhood, have convinced us we are undeserving of happiness and good things. How can we create the life we long for if we don't believe we deserve it? Sometimes it is necessary to unlearn some of the distorted messages that came out of childhood. I can help you uncover what is in your way and help you to heal.

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.

Adolescence can be a very challenging time for teens and their families. Although developmentally it is a particularly wonderful time of exploration and curiosity for teens, sometimes things do not go as expected. Individual adolescent therapy and sessions incorporating parents and /or families can make this time much easier to negotiate. I see primarily adolescents, and often incorporate parents and families into treatment planning. Presenting issues may range from anxiety and depression to substance abuse and eating disorders where I hold additional certifications and trainings. I also see adults with persisting eating issues.

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.

EMDR Therapists
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) is an information processing therapy that helps clients cope with trauma, addictions, and phobias. During this treatment, the patient focuses on a specific thought, image, emotion, or sensation while simultaneously watching the therapist's finger or baton move in front of his or her eyes. The client is told to recognize what comes up for him/her when thinking of an image; then the client is told to let it go while doing bilateral stimulation.
