"I care deeply about supporting people when they feel lonely, stuck and hopeless, and the usual things just aren't working. My clients tend to be high functioning adults who have reached a critical point where something has to give. Often this becomes evident while undergoing a major life transition such as a break up, divorce, the death of a loved one, or a career change. These low points can be scary and painful, but they can also be incredible opportunities for growth and healing. But growing is hard work and sometimes we can't do it on our own."

"Working at Stanford University and the University of California, Berkeley, helped me to develop these three recommendations for finding a therapist: 1) Find the "best fit" by meeting with (or calling) two or three therapists. Research suggests that the relationship you develop with your therapist determines therapy outcomes/benefits. Trust your judgement; pick a therapist that you like. 2) When contacting therapists, ask what experience they have working with your particular concerns. If their response does not increase your comfort, find another therapist. 3) Consider your preferred therapist demographics, such as age, ethnic-racial identity, and gender."

"It's a big decision to make some changes in your life. Therapy can be a support. An effective therapy is a space where your experiences can be discussed with authenticity and candor, and you feel support and understanding in this process. My approach is thoughtful, kind, collaborative and curious. I work relationally and psychodynamically, meaning that we will give some careful consideration to how past experiences may be in present-day obstacles. Through this process, connections are made that may facilitate a deeper understanding of you, your relationships, and importantly, offer some relief from punishing patterns."

"Have you experienced events in your life that left you feeling scared, worried, and fearful about your safety and the future? If so, you may be suffering from trauma. As a trauma-focused practitioner, I have assisted children, teens, and adults in building resilience, finding hope, and improving their relationships with others. Many of my clients are victims and survivors of childhood trauma which can leave a person feeling detached and without the ability to set limits and boundaries in relationships. It is difficult for some to believe that the symptoms of today can be the result of a residual traumatic experience. However, it is my experience, that the implicit and explicit messages of our past have had a profound effect on our current thought processes and only until that is realized, can we evoke change. "

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Piedmont Ave, Oakland Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
