I specialize in both individual trauma and grief work, as well as work with couples. I am a certified Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist, (CEFT) and I specialize in working with couples to address and remedy destructive communication, breaches in trust, infidelity issues, premarital counseling, and sexual incompatibility. My approach helps couples to reestablish a sense of connection by allowing couples to better understand the areas in their relationship where they have difficulty feeling that they each see eye-to-eye, by facilitating clearer communication of what both are needing from each other in order to feel more connected.

We all know life can be hard... And we don’t have to do it alone. I work with couples and individuals ranging in issues of anxiety, depression, grief/loss, self esteem, relationships, and parenting. My own painful experiences, and the work I have done to heal, have afforded me the ability to be present and sit with people in their own pain. I have a natural inclination to seek out deep connection with people which informs my work with clients. This can help my clients to deepen connections with others, outside of the room. I work with couples to strengthen connection, deepen intimacy, and find their voice within the partnership.

Unlike most psychotherapists, I’m a Board Certified Addiction Specialist, well versed in both abstinence and harm reduction strategies. Unlike most addiction professionals, I am also psychotherapist who also treats the anxiety, depression, and other psychological issues that often manifest after being uncovered through recovery.

I've been treating adults, couples, families, and groups in CA since 1993 (and earlier, children, teens, families, university employees, addictions and psychiatric illness, back east 1985-93). My post-grad training was in Berkeley at The Psychotherapy Institute (long-term psychodynamic) and UCB Counseling & Psychological Services (brief and long-term). Recently I worked at San Francisco Kaiser treating adults, young to elderly, with a full spectrum of mental health and medical concerns. Based on my clinical background, I tailor therapy to your present experience, future hopes, and past conditioning so you can move forward, potentially even be "self-therapeutic."

We all sometimes face a challenge in life that we just can't seem to resolve on our own. It might be a new chapter in your life that brings unexpected trials: adulthood, marriage, parenting, step-parenting, divorce, children leaving home, caring for your aging parents, the loss of a loved one, or facing your own mortality. It might be a conflict in a relationship with a loved one or in your professional life. Or it might be more of an internal struggle, whether recent or long-standing, that is giving rise to anxiety, depression, struggles with food or alcohol, or other self-defeating behaviors.

I'm a psychotherapist, relationship specialist, wife and mom. Many of us can recognize patterns of our behavior that used to be helpful but now get in the way in the relationships we want. In many ways navigating difficult circumstances allowed us to survive or even thrive, but the ways we cope now don’t benefit us in the long run. These interactions can surprise us at times because while our lives can feel full and abundant, we also can feel sadness, resentment, and worry.

If you are an individual or couple who experiences frustration and unhappiness in relationships rather than the sense of ease and flow that you long for, I urge you to dare to hope it can be different and call me. The process I use does not usually take years, like you've been led to believe by popular media! It works well with many types of "personality symptoms," from relationship issues to depression, anxiety, fears and other specific ways in which you've been frozen out of the life you want to lead.
