I believe that therapy can result in real and dramatic changes. My goal is to create a safe, compassionate, and confidential setting in which to work on such changes. Together, in a collaborative process, we can create a plan to help you be more productive, feel less overwhelmed, and more satisfied in your relationships. I can help you look at yourself clearly, explore how your past impacts the present, and how current behaviors, feelings, and ideas may interfere with achieving a fulfilling life. I am open, value diversity, and enjoy working with people of all ages.

We often seek out therapy in the harder moments of life. These moments leave us feeling broken or stuck and can emerge as a result of anything from challenging personal relationships and life transitions to systemic oppression. I view my work as a therapist as an opportunity to enter these places with my clients—finding beauty in the shadows and guiding you back to remembering your inherent wholeness.

I'm a therapist specializing in working with teens and young adults, focusing on anxiety, perfectionism, addiction, and neurodivergence, particularly ADHD and concussion/TBI. In my practice, I help teens understand that anxiety is not an enemy to be feared but a signal to be understood and harnessed. Together, we work on strategies to manage anxiety effectively, allowing it to serve as a guide rather than a ruler. By shifting this perspective, teens learn to recognize anxiety's presence as a normal and manageable part of their lives, building resilience and gaining control over their emotional responses.

Because everyone comes with their own needs, goals, and styles, I am flexible in my approach. I can be practical and problem-focused, but much of my work is deeper, and deals with emotional patterns developed early in life, I work a lot with trauma and loss. Attending to the therapy relationship is also important for learning about relationship patterns and trust. I bring my love of creativity to my work as well. Working with dreams and imagery, I find, can bring surprising insight. When therapy really takes off, I find that clients often discover their own creativity and a sense of life purpose.

Welcome. If you have found yourself here you are probably looking for relief. My passion and experience focuses around helping others find clarity and balance. We each have different histories, needs, patterns of thinking, and struggles. All of us develop strategies of protecting ourselves that have been useful in the past but have become outdated. It's important that we move toward ways that currently work; that help guide us toward the most peace and happiness possible. Guiding individuals toward getting to know, accept, and thrive in one's own self and in relationship is something I am dedicated to.

I would like to tell potential clients that my style is interactive, that I am a good listener, and that most people improve if they are committed to changing. I am particularly good at treating grief and trauma. Patients have come in with multiple losses, have seen their loved ones hurt, injured or murdered, or have themselves been raped, or assaulted and have turned their lives around. Many clients cannot get over a loss of a husband, wife, or lover and have been able to move forward. I value a partnership. I value an open heart and emotional expression.

Together we can understand your child's behavior and develop insights into your parenting.
Major life events, both positive and negative, can require emotional adjustments that take us by surprise. Even desired life changes like parenthood, marriage, and graduation can lead to unexpected feelings. Current research on attachment confirms that humans are more resilient in the face of major life change and trauma when they feel understood and supported by another. I use psychotherapy and EMDR in my practice. In therapy I am direct, but I provide the empathy and compassion that we all need. My patients feel seen by me and in turn, seek out other fortifying relationships.

Depth-orientation Jungian therapy for adults offers more than relief from symptoms. It provides an understanding of symptoms as symbols that potentially point the way to greater development and wholeness; allowing for the emergence of your true self. In therapy, we build a trusting, deeply connected relationship that holds and contains deep emotional experiences. Ultimately accessing these deep and disowned parts of psyche lays the groundwork for healing and wholeness, a process also known as individuation.

I've been in private practice for over 34 years in the San Francisco Bay Area working with individuals ,couples and families seeking support for trauma, life transitions, and development. Whatever stimulus propels an individual to seek support, can be an opportunity for each person to engage more fully in their life. The therapeutic process is an organic one that involves a mutual exploration between myself and clients with the client's needs and purpose informing the process. What may seem an obstacle may be an opening when viewed from a different perspective with another,to make a difference in one's mental health.
