I’ve helped clients emerge from anxiety, trauma, depression , low self-esteem, & burnout with a client-centered, trauma informed, & multicultural approach.
Maybe you’ve dedicated many years to meeting the needs of your family, your children, or your career. Perhaps you feel like no matter what you do, it’s never enough, and you’ve become burned out, frustrated, maybe even numb. You might be coping with a major life transition such as a divorce, job change, or a newly empty nest. Suddenly, you hear a wakeup call: Who am I now, and what do I need to be happy?

I primarily see clients struggling with depression , anxiety, and adjustment disorders.
Life is full of transitions, whether in childhood or adulthood. They are part of life and can be positive or negative. Life will always throw something your way. I'd like to help you through these transitional periods and make the journey smooth and comfortable. Seeking treatment can be a difficult choice, but in the end is a rewarding part of life. I'm looking to support parents of young children, children/teens transitioning to new stages of life, adolescents transitioning to college, new mothers adjusting to being a parent, and women who are struggling with job/school/relationship/motherhood stressors.

Or have life events left you with unresolved feelings? If you're worrying, feeling depressed , anxious, grieving, or facing a life transition, I can help. For over 15 years I have been helping people improve their relationships, deal successfully with their problems, and live life on their own terms.

I have helped people suffering with anxiety, depression , and the pervasive effects of childhood trauma to cultivate a more flexible emotional life grounded in self-compassion.
I am currently accepting individual adult clients of all ages. My approach is warm and collaborative, drawing on different therapeutic models to target your specific needs. I use a psychodynamic lens to help you identify what past and present conditions are determining your choices and coming between you and a more satisfying way of life, cognitive and mindfulness approaches to help you regulate emotions and gain perspective on self-defeating thoughts, and Sandplay therapy to process trauma and explore states of mind that are difficult to put into words. I also use Ecotherapy perspectives and exercises.

In every psychotherapy session there is a place where the client and therapist meet and come alive in the present moment. This is the place that I work from. I achieve this through active dialogue, attentive listening and creative exchange. I think it is essential to offer a space where you can feel safe to be honest about what is happening in your life.Whether you're dealing with relationship issues, anxiety, depression or struggling with a life transition, it is the relationship between you and me that leads to insight and healing.

As a caring & experienced psychotherapist, I listen carefully & respond honestly in person or by phone, FaceTime, zoom, Skype. Parental neglect or abuse leaves us with low self esteem, unresolved hurts & insufficient coping skills. Self criticism leads to painful and negative beliefs that cause depression and anxiety. We begin with the formative events in your life & your current issues. By drawing on family systems & psychodynamic principles, I use the latest interpersonal, cognitive & behavioral techniques with an informal and collaborative therapeutic approach that leads you toward greater self understanding & positive steps.

I offer longer-term integrative Jungian/psychoanalytic psychotherapy to people who are motivated to look at underlying reasons for their struggles and address them. Relationship issues, anxiety, and depression are often rooted in relationships with primary attachment figures. Hidden wounds often manifest as life-long beliefs that you are damaged, overly sensitive, unhealthy, and have poor judgement in relationships. On the one hand you may be quite accomplished, socially and professionally, but deep inside you may suspect that you are irrevocably broken, eternally confused, and unlovable.

You may be feeling lonely, frustrated, angry or depressed ; or riddled with anxiety, fret, or fear. Wherever you are along your unique journey of suffering, you are welcome here. You may be grieving, weeping, or mourning. Or you may be experiencing one of the many and innumerable ways in which we human beings are vulnerable to adversity; trying to function in a complex and deeply bereft world. Alternatively, you may be experiencing great joy and pleasure and find yourself unable to transcend to your next level of potentiality. You may see the life you want, yet you find yourself idling and dreaming. You feel it's time for support.

At the heart of our struggles and pains are relationships. At the heart of our hopes and dreams are relationships. Whether it is your relationship with anxiety and depression , with your career, with your partner, sister, son, daughter, boss, or parent-everything is about relationships. Therapy helps you tackle some of the most challenging questions we all face. How do we repair what needs to be fixed in our relationships, including the relationship with ourselves? What needs attention, a new perspective, a better skill, or emotional resolve to enable you to become more authentic and improve your connection to self and others?

My areas of specialty include anxiety, depression , stress, LGBTQQI issues, teens (high school and older), and women's issues.
We've all seen the stereotypical therapists on TV, but that's not what you'll find with me. I am a down-to-earth person, which is reflected in my approach as a therapist. Compassion, warmth, and believe it or not, humor is what you will experience in our work together. You first must feel comfortable with your therapist for the experience to be successful.

I specialize in anxiety/ depression , body self image and eating disorders, men's issues and substance /recovery.
Psychotherapy offers emotional and psychological space for change. It is an opportunity to decode what is not working and with therapeutic guidance provide clients with a scaffolding to try out new thinking and ways of feeling. I see psychotherapy as a kind of lab, where clients safely get to try new approaches out, notice what works and what is most effective. My work is about helping clients; whether a problem to be solved, a desired behavioral change, or finding meaning during a life challenging experience. I encourage individuals to contact me and explore that change. I am here to help.

Whether you are struggling with a relationship conflict, grieving a significant loss, experiencing a lack of joy or creativity, or perhaps making a career change, I offer support and guidance to work through feelings of confusion, fear, self-doubt, isolation or loneliness that often accompany these challenges. Therapy can be a comfortable place to address many troubling concerns in a careful, reflective way so they become life-enhancing experiences rather than simply "bearable" moments to endure.

Carl Jung said: “It is what you are that heals, not what you know”. The journey of self-discovery is exactly that – getting to know and deeply appreciating your true and authentic self, even when that essence may be covered by trauma, hardship and suffering. It is this uncovering that many who experience psychotherapy to be transformative and healing refer to as a “re-birth”, a coming home to and an unfolding of who you truly are. Engaging in the process of self-inquiry can be a rewarding and even a life-changing experience, especially in the presence of an empathic and compassionate other.

People often seek therapy when they sense that their lives could be bigger - when they feel limited by old patterns, beliefs and behaviors. We all share the human need for freedom. I help people address their inner barriers to living the expansive lives they imagine possible. The core of my style is a deep respect for each individual's unique process. Clients I've worked with have reported benefits such as experiencing more joy; greater inner peace and wellbeing; more satisfying relationships; a deeper sense of connection with others; more effective communication; enhanced creativity; and greater self confidence.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Pacifica. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
