I value working with individuals who are ready to dive into the journey of self-exploration, self awareness and emotional growth. You want a life filled with purpose, joy, and authentic connections. You're ready to invest in yourself, break free from limiting beliefs, and embrace a future where you thrive. I use a mind and body-integrated approach to treatment, such as increasing awareness of the Gut-Brain connection and incorporating Mindfulness practices along with traditional talk therapy to help you improve your mental wellness using all the ways your body naturally heals itself.

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.

Welcome! Are you experiencing an unexpected transition, difficulties in relationships, feelings of uncertainty, or are you at the threshold of having to make significant life decisions? If any of these questions resonate and you are in search of guidance to actualize change in your life, therapy can offer a compassionate private space to deepen your process of self-inquiry, gain renewed perspective, heal from past pain and losses and reimagine your future through clarifying your truest feelings, needs and choices. Therapy is most optimal as an interactive collaboration between client and therapist with the relationship at the heart.

I often work with patients to examine longstanding difficulties, both with others and within their own selves. Such patterns often leave people feeling misunderstood, empty, lost, unheard, unseen, taken advantage of, stuck, angry, or resentful. Feeling this way can leave you feeling disconnected from and distrusting of others; even those who you love and want to feel close to. Many times, these pieces can be extremely difficult and even can feel impossible to share. And that's okay. We will work together to address what feels important to you and at your pace.

Over 40 years of diverse practice has taught me that when people are in psychotherapy they create ingenious ways to grow, to resolve internal/social conflict and to improve their sense of personal fulfillment. They are innovative and sincere. Therapy is more than a serious, shared introspection. It is also a playful interaction. It usually involves a full range of emotions that includes a sharing of ideas and a mutual exchange, which almost always involves a lively conversation. There seems to be one common theme, namely that each person is seeking to find a sense of truth and well-being.

Are you worried about self-defeating tendencies? Why do you get in your own way in relationships, at work, in school, or in expressing your inspiration and creativity? We look together at the barriers to success that interfere with productivity and peace of mind. Because I co-authored the book, "Procrastination: Why You Do It; What To Do About It NOW," (and because it took me six years to complete my dissertation!) I like to help people overcome procrastination and achieve their goals. My other specialities include: grief, trauma, relationship difficulties, sexual and gender confusion, low self-esteem.

Going into psychotherapy or coaching should be like putting the finishing touches on your life. My goal in working with clients is to assist them in discovering their strengths so they can use them to create the life they most desire. I believe clients move towards growth when time is right.

As a result of our meetings, you will gain tools to feel better, more confident, and satisfied with your life.

I believe the therapeutic process is collaborative: You share your experience, I listen, respond, and together we find the way towards your goals and healing. Perhaps you have clear ideas about what you want to work on, or you might have a sense that life isn't going well, but you don't know why.  You may have experienced troubling events in the past or in the present; perhaps a family member, friend or boss has encouraged you to seek help.  I have more than 50 years of experience as a psychotherapist in the Bay Area. I welcome your call.
