Damaged relationships with the world and our families can affect us deeply throughout our lives leaving us feeling isolated, uncomfortable in our bodies and generally unsafe. Our energy begins to decline along with our enthusiasm for life. Its confusing. We quietly stonewall everything and everyone while wishing for the right partner, right career and right friends. Feelings of insecurity, loneliness or shame can spiral into deep bouts of depression, acting out, despair and suicide. Prioritizing the needs of everyone else can lead to unhealthy behaviors and choices supplanting authenticity and joy, while swapping virtual reality for real relationships and happiness.

Everyday I meet with individuals and couples who are in the process of confronting worry, depression, conflict and dissatisfaction to find greater joy, peace and meaning in their lives. If and when you decide to take a first step into therapy, I think you will find me to be an insightful, responsive and non-judgmental individual with an extensive therapeutic "tool kit." My approach is interactive and person-centered. Together we will engage in a process of deepening your understanding of the feelings and views motivating your actions, which can then lead to more effective and skillful ways of living.

For three decades I have been privileged as a marriage and family therapist to make a difference in people's lives. Though I am most known for being a Jungian-oriented therapist and author, my training in pastoral counseling and spiritual direction, my experience in long-term psychodynamic treatment, and my long-standing interest in all the many forms and expressions of human sexuality, as an "out" gay therapist and activist, are areas of expertise that come together in my work to help clients find a way to be their deepest, healthiest and most authentic selves.

Welcome to my practice. I have been in practice since 2007 and have been featured on ABC, NBC, and KCAL as an expert psychologist. I work primarily with men who have hit “rock bottom” and would like help getting up. These men are often in crisis when we first meet. The issues I address are typically related to unhealthy sexual behaviors, infidelity, financial recklessness, gambling, drugs/alcohol, dishonesty/lying, and relational conflicts. My therapy approach is a combination of psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioral, and the 12-Step recovery model. I also share insight from my own painful but redemptive recovery journey.

We seek therapy because at some level we imagine that life could be better. We all suffer in different ways and suffering is universal, but it is precisely that suffering that leads us into a process of discovering how our deepest selves want to be expressed in the world and then to find the inner resources to live that out. In its truest sense, psychotherapy – which means “tending to the soul” – is not only concerned with alleviating symptoms, resolving issues, or adapting to life’s demands (though these are important), but ultimately with living lives that are more joyful, creative and free.

I can make a difference in your child's success in special education, IEPs, learning differences, navigating for parents whose children may need extra help in school, or having a negative effect on a young child who has lost their self-esteem and has a failure mentality and turns it into a child believing and feeling like they can succeed and has pride with knowing they can achieve success. Academic help is every child's right through a federal law that is already in place. Many parents do not know how to access these programs. These techniques or resources are tailored specifically for your child.

For years, clients have responded well to my approach, as I have lived experience in overcoming complex trauma. I truly understand and offer something many clinicians cannot - authentic insights and support strategies that actually work. I provide a judgment-free, compassionate space. I have worked in the mental health arena for my entire adult life. I worked and studied in several Latin American countries but call the Bay Area home. I have an extensive background supporting adolescents, adults and families experiencing anxiety and depression, survivors of trauma including complex trauma, as well as individuals battling addiction.

Many clients I work with have difficulty letting people really see them. Outwardly, they are viewed as smart, creative, and successful, but have a hard time feeling vulnerable and may even feel "broken inside". These clients are my specialty. I provide my clients with the feeling like I always have their back by creating a safe, supportive, and consistent relationship. This allows you to develop the perspectives and abilities that may have felt too overwhelming to change on your own. Through our work, you will feel a strong and steady sense of who you are, allowing you confidence to grow.
