I enjoy working with people who have addictions or anxiety or something else weighing them down, working with them for a relatively short period of time, and watching them become energized and passionate about their lives. I believe that my clients know themselves better than anyone else. I work to help my clients achieve their goals. I believe I can best serve people by using what research has shown to be effective. I do not believe therapy should take a long time; most of my clients graduate within 3-6 months. I work on an time-sensitive basis so some require more sessions.

Because change is your work and your choice; my role is to set the stage, empty it, illuminate what stands in the way and explore with you the possibilities for change. Ultimately you decide.The fact that you're here already ensures it. My job is to notice your process, reflect and honor it. In this space, I have seen amazing change happen.

Life can be challenging sometimes ... especially for those of us in the Bay Area. On the surface, everything seems great. Yet, many of us are stressed, overwhelmed, and irritable. This often comes from a deep sense of feeling unfulfilled, empty, helpless, and unsatisfied. As a result, our relationships may suffer and our jobs as parents can become especially difficult. That's where I come in. -- My passion is helping you understand what's holding you back ... and developing ways to help you live a more fulfilled, balanced, and harmonious life.

After many years as a psychologist I know one thing for certain: the foundation of therapy is a relationship built on trust, openness, and mutual respect. I see myself as a guide and partner in the change process. I have experience treating the full range of adult problems and have always worked with a culturally diverse population. I have particular interest in creativity, women's issues, and adult development throughout the life cycle. I have specialized training in addictions, codependence, and eating disorders. My therapeutic orientation is broadly psychodynamic, along with EMDR and mindfulness-based approaches.

Are you feeling stuck? Overwhelmed? Unable to manage the stress of life? Are you challenged by compulsive or addictive behaviors that you cannot seem to stop? Struggling in relationships with others or experiencing shame? Many of us need to reach out for assistance in order to figure out how to better manage stress and enjoy life, rather then feel burdened by it. This is not weakness or lack of self-will. Rather it is a fact of our existence as human beings. We often need help from one another to accomplish certain tasks we cannot do alone.

Do you struggle with feelings of anxiety, depression, guilt or low self-esteem? Do you find yourself avoiding social engagements or so preoccupied with excessive worrying? Finding ways to navigate these difficult feelings can help you get back on track. I use a psychodynamic approach and CBT that focuses on uncovering patterns of behavior and ways of relating to ourselves and others that are often outside of our awareness. I also consider how our past impacts who we are today. Through acceptance and empathy, we will establish a trusting therapeutic relationship and work together toward your personal growth and self-discovery.

Therapy is an amazing placebo. You do not NEED a therapist to learn, transform, and grow your awareness of yourself. I firmly believe whatever it is you are seeking to learn, change, or make peace with, you can do it. The benefit of working with a trained therapist who sees you, gives your sense of agency and innate wisdom the respect it deserves, and offers an outside perspective on your experience informed by evidenced-based theory and practice, is that the pace of growth is greatly accelerated.
