Most of my clients come in struggling with their closest relationships - with their partners, parents, kids, colleagues and/or friends. There is often a deep longing for more joy, authenticity, and freedom from painful symptoms like anxiety and depression. I help clients learn to understand and thoughtfully navigate their emotional world, as we work to unpack and rewire recurring symptoms and habits. Issues I commonly work with include unhealthy relationships, work/life balance, healing unresolved childhood wounds, couples issues, anxiety, depression, parenthood, trauma, low self-esteem, addiction, infertility, loss, and grief.

About three-quarters of my practice is devoted to individual therapy with gay men and counseling for gay couples. The remainder of my therapy hours are devoted to women, the parents of gay men, and others. I specialize in gay and bisexual issues, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, aging, trauma, personal isolation, relationships, intimacy, sex, HIV, and survivor issues. I have written extensively about the psychological and social issues of gay men and gay communities. My most recent book, released in June 2019 by Farrar, Straus and Giroux (and Penguin in the U.K.), is "Out of the Shadows: Reimagining Gay Men's Lives."

My role as a psychologist is to help you navigate through a complex and stressful world. I'm most skilled at addressing issues related to depression and anxiety, relationship challenges, and self-esteem. Additionally, I enjoy helping people manage social and behavioral problems prevent healthy interactions with family, friends, and co-workers. I am experienced in addressing the challenges of both adults and children by drawing upon a few different theoretical perspectives to aid in helping individuals understand themselves, the origin of their problems, and how they can make changes in current life to feel happier.

Carving out time to air your concerns with a therapist you are comfortable with can bring relief and help you navigate a path that feels meaningful, fulfilling, and authentic. I work primarily with individual adults. Some of my areas of focus are: identity, anxiety, depression, relationships, stress, self-esteem, adoption, coping skills, spirituality, trauma, LGBTQ+, life crises and transitions. Often when you address one area, clarifying and working with what is within your control, other areas improve as well, as you access your strengths.

In the fast-paced, hyper-competitive Bay Area, it can be challenging to balance all of the roles that we assume. Work, school, money, technology, and relationship stressors can leave us feeling depleted. Anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and career dissatisfaction are some of the ways stressors may manifest. My aim is to support and help to empower you to improve your life by engaging in the life that you want to lead. This may result in increased effectiveness, happiness, and reduced suffering in all of your roles.

Coming from a holistic, mind-body, humanistic, compassionate perspective, I work with clients who desire to improve the quality of their lives, reducing stress and emotional pain. Clients may suffer from loneliness, depression, low self-esteem, anxiety or loss. They may need help with communication awareness, grounding methods, self-care, sexual fulfillment or life purpose. These conditions are more normal than abnormal, while sometimes feeling overwhelming. I invite clients to listen to and trust their innate wisdom, guiding them to identify and move through the obstacles preventing them from living their life to the fullest.

Therapy offers us a chance to relate AND become more fully present with ourselves. Together we contemplate the human journey. We can get familiar with our innate mindfulness and compassion. On my journey I've realized that wellbeing can be learned; achieved with a level of skillfulness, a window of tolerance. Getting triggered helps us learn. I join clients in studying their nervous systems and their "parts" -- a complex legacy of neurobiological attachment wiring. With a manner that is warm, relatable, and active yet non-invasive, I help my clients find meaning, hope, and the freedom to become who they were meant to be.

Having a safe and supportive space where one can talk openly, is so very important. Feeling understood and listened to promotes growth and change. I am warm and understanding as well as insightful and objective, bringing experience and honesty to my work. Together we will talk about what’s going on now, past events and relationships, and how they might be affecting you. I will work to develop a trusting, supportive relationship to more clearly understand what is troubling you. My clients have enjoyed success in overcoming anxiety and depression, connecting with others, defining and attaining goals, and increasing self-esteem.

When we can give our feelings the attention they ask for, they tend to guide us in useful directions. I offer therapy as a reliable space where you can slow down, really meet your inner world and learn to relate to what you discover there. Just as our feelings have meaning, our symptoms tell a story. They can become afflictions when we don’t understand what kind of acceptance, or change, they’re asking of us. I’ve found it’s through nurturing our inner life that we have a chance to recover and revive what feels dead, lost, or unworthy, to find things of great value in ourselves and others, and even meet something that transcends us.

Do you feel stuck? Many people begin psychotherapy because they feel something is "off". They are dissatisfied, but unclear about what they want; they feel that "something is missing," but they're not sure what it is. Others begin psychotherapy because they find themselves repeatedly cycling through unhealthy relationship patterns and they want to change. Additionally, we all have traumas and woundings within us, to varying degrees. Psychotherapy can help untangle these knots and move you through suffering and pain towards greater health, integration, wholeness, vitality, and well-being.

The ideal hypnotherapy client has a specific issue or goal in mind that they would like help with. The client is clear about what it is that they would like to be different in their current life, and has the ability to clearly visualize this desired life in their imagination, just as they would ideally like it to be. In addition, the client is able to experience the feelings of gratification/the sense of accomplishment/the feelings of happiness, peace, contentment, or any other emotions that they believe will accompany the accomplishment of this goal.

Are you feeling anxious, like you can't "just be," always thinking about the next thing, and finding it hard to enjoy the day to day? I work with individuals who are struggling with anxiety, self-doubt, burn-out, co-dependency, or are grappling to find joy and meaning in their life or work. My passion is helping individuals change painful patterns, set healthy boundaries, develop skills to help them cope more confidently with their emotions and life, increase their self-awareness, and reconnect to themselves more deeply. I also work with couples who are feeling disconnected from each other and are ready to reconnect and communicate!

Prioritizing QTBIPOC clients. You are a breathing universe. Yet the oppressive paradigm we live in may be making it hard to remember who you are. Social injustices may make it unsafe to express and be yourself. As a queer person and a child of immigrants, it's important for me to hold an anti-oppressive healing space in acknowledgement of such ongoing traumas and their impact on our mental health and wellness. Our space is one where your full expression, peace, joy and liberation are centered. I speak English, Japanese and Spanish and am happy to incorporate these languages in our work.
