The impact of chronic pain often goes far beyond the body, and may leave you feeling depressed, anxious, angry, and isolated. As a pain psychologist, I can help you build effective coping tools to take back control over your thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and physical symptoms so that you can live a meaningful life that is not defined by your pain . I emphasize a collaborative, solution-focused approach to therapy, and will work with you to create a treatment plan that takes into account the unique biological, psychological, and social factors that make you who you are.

I specialize in sexual issues and persistent psychogenic pain . Both of these realms entail working through trauma, anxiety, grief, impulsivity, and depression. In sex therapy, I help clients grappling with issues around functioning, sexual shame, sexual trauma, impulsive behaviors, sex and porn "addictions," low and hyper-arousal issues - all from a sex-positive, kink/poly/bdsm-friendly stance. I also help couples navigate challenges in their intimate relationships. With chronic pain and discomfort, I help people change their relationship to the symptoms, which leads to drastic reduction and often elimination of symptoms.

I work both as a psychotherapist and a neuropsychologist. My areas of therapy specialization are illness /medical issues (such as cancer, chronic pain , and spinal cord injuries), aging issues, coping with dementia or other cognitive limitations, and couples issues. I also provide neuropsychological assessments, particularly for seniors who may be concerned about cognitive decline. My style is flexible, compassionate, and down to earth. I try to be responsive to the needs of my clients, and work creatively and collaboratively to find the best way to be helpful.

I believe creativity is the highest form of defense against psychological pain , and encourage my client's self expression.
I work with a wide range of clients. Those confronting transitions, relationships problems, career concerns, addictions, student concerns and other challenges. Depression, anxiety, stress or addictive behaviors are usually the first step in a journey to self-discovery. I create a nurturing, supportive and warm space for my clients to examine their relationships, the impacts of their family environments, thought patterns and dreams. I help my clients understand concessions they may have been made in their original family enabled adaptation, but may later interfere with their fulfillment. Together we create new stories with happier endings.

For over 24 years, I've collaborated with people to resolve their psychological trauma, phobias, anxiety & stress as well as maximize responses to their medical diagnoses, treatments & conditions. This clinical focus stems from both a personal medical challenge since age 12 and research on treating women with breast cancer and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Yet Kaiser research (1998) finding 70% of primary care visits are driven by mental, emotional and relational issues highlights how mind and body are interwoven for each of us. This interplay provides leverage for preventive medicine, for responding to illness and for maximizing peak performance.

Whether you've been in therapy before, or this will be your first time; it is important to feel safe and comfortable enough to talk about things that are causing you distress. Are you experiencing life changes, decisions, challenges, trauma, illness , or disabilities? Are you looking for a way to cope with anxiety or depression?  Do you have nightmares or trouble sleeping?  Maybe you have experienced the loss of someone close to you, or a job, or a beloved pet.  Or you are just plain stressed out.  All the time. Talk can help, but so can non-verbal expressive therapies, in a non-threatening, non-judgmental environment.

I work within your world, not you within mine, It's my responsibility and privilege to choose, from a range of therapeutic modes and experience, what suits you and/or your situation--whether it is stress management and meditation, executive coaching, dreamwork, coping skills for health crises/chronic illness or spiritual concerns.
Working in Silicon Valley and close to Stanford University has given me the privilege and delight--for 25 years--of accompanying executives, professionals, academics and/or their partners and families during times of growth, grief, and change, both welcome and unwelcome. I respect the courage and commitment these gifted, stressed individuals and couples bring to their personal and professional development and challenges, and to increasing the quality of both their inner and outer lives.

Anyone who has ever experienced trauma cannot overlook the excruciating pain and fear it instills in the body and mind. Such pain , if left unattended may morph into depression, anxiety, chronic physical pain , and profound sense of loss and continuous grief. It can mask our identity and destroy our lifestyle. We turn out to be disoriented, stuck, and confined. Our lives become foreign to us. We find ourselves witnessing its broadcast, as opposed to fully experiencing it in the moment. Hence, we turn to our defenses in the form of compensatory behaviors, such as addiction and compulsions or lose the meaning of life.
