I work with couples and individuals who have sexual dysfunction, eating disorders and personality disorders .
I enjoy working with motivated, well-educated, intelligent people. I help identify what troubles them and work toward understanding and addressing how these difficulties prevent them from experiencing satisfying relationships and making change in their lives. I am an experienced therapist who is direct, collaborative and can help you move toward a potential that's not being reached. I have a nursing / medical background that facilitates my comfort in working within the medical professions, emergency & paramedic services. I have years of experience with those who work in law enforcement and have been chronically traumatized.

I have extensive professional experience working with anxiety, mood and personality disorders .
Too often psychotherapy focuses on causality, pathology and cures. However, rather than being "sick" or 'broken", often we are just lost inside ourselves or relationships. Everyone is a unique person with their own story, experience and perspective. The goal of therapy is to achieve a deeper awareness of where we are, to discover internal meaning for our many experiences, and to experience a life worth living. While working towards that awareness, I also feel it important to teach individuals, couples and families the skills needed to cope with the pain and day to day stressors that bring them into therapy.

I work with adults to address issues including depression, anxiety, trauma, bipolar, personality disorders , psychotic disorders, relational difficulties, career and life transitions, substance use, and personal growth.
I provide a safe, supportive environment in which you can talk about your feelings and experiences, both past and present. We engage in a collaborative process that allows for investigation into why you feel the way you do and what factors have influenced your development into who you are and how you experience life. In doing so, people are often able to feel better about themselves, their relationships, and their place in the world.

Do you believe that happiness is not possible unless you obtain a certain body size, relationship or job and are on a constant quest for perfectionism? You may find yourself turning to addiction, chaotic relationships, disordered eating, your inner critic and negative body image to find relief from anxiety, stress or trauma. This is understandable, but there is another way... Imagine creating a compassionate relationship with yourself based on accepting your body as a source of wisdom, connecting you to your feelings, authenticity, creativity and life force.

I practice Mindfulness and Somatic based Cognitive Therapy to help treat Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Relationship, and life's woes. Together we will understand what causes your suffering and create change. Our traumas, difficult relationships, COVID, loss, and heartache, can all be confusing and debilitating and influence us to live patterns of suffering through our behaviors, beliefs, habitual thinking and life circumstances. By discovering and practicing new behaviors you will learn how to relate to your thoughts, emotions, and body in a manner that allows you to live the life that you want to be living.

Something is getting in the way of living the life you want to live. You want to be professionally successful, have good relationships with friends and family, contribute meaningfully to the world and even have some fun. Instead you may be suffering a barrage of negative thoughts about yourself, sabotaging work or relationships or feeling unbearably anxious. I can provide a supportive, respectful relationship where you can face these difficult issues. I have helped many people to curb self/other destructiveness, improve relationships and have a more successful work-life while learning to be more kind to themselves and others.

I am a psychotherapist with offices in SF and Oakland, treating both adults and couples. I take a relational and collaborative approach to psychotherapy. We are all unique, consciously and unconsciously influenced by the relationships and life-events that leave a lasting impact on how we address our current situation. Difficulties can sometimes arise when the habitual thoughts, emotions, or behaviors that once served us now have us feeling stuck, depressed, and powerless. Fear, ambivalence, compulsivity and patterned thinking can hamper our ability to address the inevitable twists and turns of daily life.

I see therapy as an adventure with one's self. My strength as a therapist is to help you take personal risks in order both to discover and to become a whole person. We all need support and empathy to become who we are meant to be. Therapy should be a comfortable environment where your own wisdom is respected and built upon. The goal is to integrate your body, mind, and spirit. Adult ADD, support for psych med withdrawal, and GLBT issues are a specialty, but all are very welcome.
