Many of the clients I work with have either lost or struggled to develop a sense of control in their lives and relationships– having fallen into destructive patterns of substance abuse/addiction and impulsive and/or self-harming behaviors. Others may be struggling with an excess of self-imposed control– leading to a sense of isolation and fear of taking healthy risks. Some are confronting a major life-transition, loss of identity, divorce, death of a loved one or faced with a pervading sense of meaninglessness. All are, in one way or another, seeking to increase their sense of personal agency and effectiveness in daily life.

I have experiences with clients ranging from ages 5-92, covering issues from parenting challenges, anxiety, depression, ADHD, suicidal ideation, self-harm, life transitions, trauma, and grief / bereavement .
Sometimes you can sail through your life issues just fine without any professional therapy help. Other times, therapy can help you navigate difficult times, which are inevitable given that life is sometimes unpredictable, odd, and even painful. Therapy can help smooth the bumps in the relationships that you have: both within your own self and with others.

Whether you've been in therapy before, or this will be your first time; it is important to feel safe and comfortable enough to talk about things that are causing you distress. Are you experiencing life changes, decisions, challenges, trauma, illness, or disabilities? Are you looking for a way to cope with anxiety or depression?  Do you have nightmares or trouble sleeping?  Maybe you have experienced the loss of someone close to you, or a job, or a beloved pet.  Or you are just plain stressed out.  All the time. Talk can help, but so can non-verbal expressive therapies, in a non-threatening, non-judgmental environment.

My private psychotherapy practice was built to serve individuals and couples in the San Francisco Bay Area. Through life we are faced with a range of stressors, from natural transitions, to abrupt grief and tragedy. It is a normal part of development to find ourselves faced with overwhelming emotions and at a loss for what to do next. These are the times when a licensed and compassionate clinician can be an asset for creating healing and change. At the heart of my work, I aim to help you turn a season of challenge into an opportunity for character transformation.

Are you unhappy in your primary relationship? Have you suffered the loss of a love? Are addictions (yours or your partners) hurting you and the people you love? Would you like to have a more fulfilling sexual relationship with your partner? I have been helping couples increase emotional and physical intimacy for over 20 years. I take a directive approach to helping couples communicate more effectively. Often they find this results in more frequent supportive and loving interactions. Therapy can help you become more empowered in all your relationships. This often results in being more productive at work as well.

I specialize in trauma, anxiety, pregnancy loss , fertility issues, and insomnia.
Experiencing challenge is part of the human condition. When those challenges threaten to overwhelm, having a warm, empathic, non-judgmental therapist to walk alongside you can be extremely helpful. I specialize in helping individuals with a trauma history, recent or remote, to regain confidence and a sense of control in their lives. Understanding how trauma has affected one's outlook on themselves, others, and the world allows lasting change to unfold. In addition to childhood trauma, I work with those who have experienced recent trauma and reproductive trauma, such as pregnancy loss , termination of desired pregnancy, & infertility.

Grief Therapists
Grief is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.

If you're looking for a Redwood City grief therapist, these professionals provide grief therapy and counseling in Redwood City.
