In today's tech-driven environment, the pressure to succeed can be overwhelming. Striving to achieve measures of success that do not include what is personally meaningful may heighten stress and anxiety. Therapy is an opportunity to examine the relationship between external messages and one's inner truths. It also supports the process of creating a life that is in harmony with who one truly aspires to be.

Do you long for more intimacy and happiness in your life? Do you know what you want and seek the support to move into bold action? I believe people have an intrinsic sense of how personal dynamics may be creating or blocking what it is desired, but often get stuck in unconscious patterns and old behaviors. Taking the time to tune into self is a valuable resource for finding one's own voice and the natural solutions that reside within. I offer support to help you manage issues, find solutions, break patterns and create more of the life you want.

Once-upon-a-time none of us were parents and we didn't think much about how difficult that role could be. Fast forward to today and here you are searching for help with your child. Addictive technologies, teaching self-discipline, developing strategies for coping with change are challenging. Teaching life skills, and helping parents be more effective is what I've been doing since 1991. I'm what you might call a generalist in that I work with boys and girls of all ages and relate as easily to a six-year-old as to a sixteen-year-old.

Perhaps you’re making a transition in your family life, your career, or your relationship. Or maybe you feel stuck, and wish you could make a change. Shifts like these can bring up all types of feelings, like anxiety, hope, disappointment or excitement, all mixed together. No matter what you’re going through, it can be a chance to get to know yourself better, and learn what you want. I work with people who are dealing with transitions in life, as well as anxiety about the present or future. I help people better understand what they’re going through, how to cope with it, and how to feel confident about themselves moving forward.

As humans we have an immense power in our ability to gain insight into our own thoughts, feelings, and actions. However, we often get so caught up in our everyday activities that we are unable to fully understand what is happening on an intrapersonal level. Psychotherapy provides the opportunity to gain this insight, and make changes based upon what we learn, using effective strategies that have emerged from decades of research.

As a therapist, my goal is to help my clients form better relationships, understand the patterns in their life, recognize their potential, and increase their resilience. To truly "know thyself" can be a difficult task, and I am committed to helping others embark upon their journey of self exploration. If you are facing depression, anxiety, strained relationships, feelings of helplessness, low self-esteem, poor performance at school or work, or other challenges, you may be a good candidate for therapy.

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.

Our world can be pretty hectic, especially here in the Bay Area. We all experience stress from external and internal pressures and obstacles. Life can feel overwhelming which leads our body and mind to shut down and/or lash out in various ways. We feel stuck because we are drowning in intense emotions and stressful events and we don’t know how to get to the surface and catch a breath. As a result we miss out on the joys of life as we cannot fully experience happiness with the weight of everything we need to get done or everything we need to do to meet everyone’s (even our own) expectations.

As a caring & experienced psychotherapist, I listen carefully & respond honestly in person or by phone, FaceTime, zoom, Skype. Parental neglect or abuse leaves us with low self esteem, unresolved hurts & insufficient coping skills. Self criticism leads to painful and negative beliefs that cause depression and anxiety. We begin with the formative events in your life & your current issues. By drawing on family systems & psychodynamic principles, I use the latest interpersonal, cognitive & behavioral techniques with an informal and collaborative therapeutic approach that leads you toward greater self understanding & positive steps.
