I'm here to help find fulfilling and lifelong sexual/intimate satisfaction, whether you are partnered or single, straight, gay, bi, poly, kinky, asexual, furry or fandom. These days, so many of us are seeking less stress and more balance. The Bay Area is a worldly place, many come excited by its progressive sexual energy. Others may find sex confusing, challenging to talk about, or even perhaps, their worst nightmare. Most want better ways to communicate, especially about sex; perhaps to deepen love and connection, or for a path to restore trust and find pleasure. Sex can be juicy and life affirming, I am here to help you find that.
My primary theoretical orientation is Cognitive-Behavioral (CBT). This means that I attend to your thoughts and feelings and to how they influence emotion and overall well-being, now and in the future. CBT offers a number of strategies for promoting change in the direction of one's long term goals. For our treatment to be most effective, you will need to be an active participant and collaborator in establishing your goals. I also ask that you work on treatment in between sessions, and I frequently give homework assignments to assist in the process.
For me, the focus of therapy is not primarily to fix disorders or cure diseases; I seek to increase your positive life skills rather than address negative patterns. What happens in the therapy hour is a microcosm of life at large. How you do anything is how you do everything. And so, I give special attention to the actual, to the present moment, in particular your immediate subjective experience. Ultimately, when you become aware of your resistance(s) to pain and return to wholeness and authenticity, my work is done.

Does your teenager appear to be struggling with big emotions and uncharacteristic behavior and you and your partner don’t know how to help? Do you feel disconnected from yourself, your partner and your teen? Has there been a communication breakdown in the family and your usual tools to maintain closeness are not working? I understand that sometimes even the strongest families and relationships get shaken up by unexpected feelings and intense situations that their kids go through.

Greetings...I have been a licensed therapist since 1987 and specialize in working with men, women and couples. I have been facilitating men's groups since the early 90's in my Redwood City office. My work is grounded in my deep understanding of the human experience and how we want to better understand ourselves and each other. Many of us lack some of the skills to accomplish this. I see myself as an experienced, wise and compassionate guide helping others navigate and master emotional challenges. Let me join you for a time on your life's journey.
People come to therapy with a wide range of issues and concerns. The common feature among my patients is an interest in coming to understand themselves better as a way to help them head in a different, more satisfying direction. Specific presenting problems have involved disappointments in employment, substance use, and relationship difficulties. My patients have included individuals experiencing somatic symptoms and people with mood disorders such as bipolar, depression, and anxiety.
It truly is possible to be at ease, joyful, fulfilled, and authentically yourself - and have the resilience to get through the tough times. You may have been on the path of growth for some time and are ready for a new approach. I have walked the path, know the territory, and can guide you to a whole-hearted, confident, happier life. If you seek a depth-oriented, body/mind/spirit approach to overcoming anxiety and depression, releasing stress, transforming relationships, dealing with life transitions, or healing from loss, you've found the right place.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) who specializes in working with children, teens and individuals on the autism spectrum. My approach is built on the notion each person has the natural inclination for personal growth and change. My role as the therapist is to provide empathy, guidance, and unconditional positive regard while being genuine and honest in the therapeutic relationship.
I appreciate working with people who for whatever reason feel change tugging on them. Sometimes this "tug" may manifest as a crisis in one's life. I believe that some of the most profound changes are initiated through what are experienced as a crisis.
My approach is based on principles from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, a mindfulness-based behavioral approach that has been empirically-validated to be effective across a wide range of diagnoses, age groups and cultural backgrounds. I enjoy working with tweens/teens, individual adults, parents and families struggling with challenges related to parent-child issues, ADHD, grief, transgender, adoption, trauma, life transitions, spirituality and diversity/race-related issues. I also have a passion for working with Asian/Pacific Islander and BIPOC women.

Are you or a family member looking for an evidence-based, scientific approach to the treatment of Anxiety, OCD, Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors, or Tic Disorders?

It takes a great deal of courage to reach out to a stranger and ask for help. We can take the work at your pace whether you’ve been in therapy before or this is your first time. I work relationally and, as a result, care deeply about your experience of our work and our relationship. I will encourage you to pay attention to how our work is impacting you emotionally and physically. I can work with you briefly to address a discrete issue or longer term to address a more pervasive difficulty.
