Whether you are seeking therapy for relationship problems or experiencing difficult emotions, negative patterns, career challenges, self-sabotage, family conflicts, or plain sick-of-being sick--it is a trusting therapeutic relationship that provides the foundation for helping you.
I am a licensed psychologist who sees individuals, couples and families for more than 20 years. My goal is to help patients live psychologically healthier and more fulfilling lives. My patients want to remove obstacles and recover hope, purpose and themselves. I help explore deeper issues and patterns underlying persistent unhappiness, as well as help navigate life transitions that are overwhelming. Adjusting to uncertainty, new beginnings, endings, isolation, grief, and constantly changing conditions are challenging and can cause us to get stuck. I can help unstick.

Several psychological schools of thought, including psychodynamic theory and family systems theory, inform my work.
My professional training and years of experience have taught me that the people I work with genuinely want to lead happier and more fulfilling lives. They enter treatment because they want to develop closer and more rewarding relationships, because they want to achieve their life and career goals, and because they want to overcome the self-defeating thoughts and behaviors that get in their way and cause them pain and suffering. I have never met a parent who did not truly want the best for their child.

For the past two years, I have practiced as a psychotherapist for children, adults, seniors and families presenting with a wide variety of concerns at Jewish Family and Children's Services in Marin.
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.

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.

I enjoy helping both individuals and couples successfully navigate the inevitable challenges of long term relationships and family life.
You may be educated, even outwardly successful, but struggle to feel good about yourself, have difficulties with close relationships or just want more out of life. I believe it's human to struggle and that we all can benefit from self exploration. You stand to gain, and so does your partner, children, friends, even co-workers when you're bringing more of your best self to the game. My style is active and I bring humor and compassion to help you develop solutions as well as grow from your struggles. A seasoned therapist, my approach is flexible and practical, tailored to meet your needs. I'm LGBTQIA sensitive and welcoming.

Depending on the treatment goals, I may work alone with the child, with the child and parents together or separately, or with the entire family .
Are you concerned or confused by your child's behavior? Has your child's teacher suggested your child work with a therapist? Are you worried that your child is under stress? Do you feel like you are not a good parent for your child? It is very difficult to parent a child who is struggling with challenging feelings and behaviors. I provide therapeutic support to kids who struggle with ADHD, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, adoption issues, learning disabilities, behavioral challenges, academic or social issues, or major life changes. I offer support for parents.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
