"I specialize in working with you or you and your significant other in times of change: wanted or unwanted; stuck or struck; milestones or the weight of the world; career shifts or dead-end jobs; becoming parents or finding out you're a parent; un-coupling or committing; wits-end or letting go or starting again... By looking at your relationship to yourself and others through your habits, patterns, survival skills, and super powers, we find their purpose. Next we acknowledge and honor them, add compassion and respect which builds your self esteem. Then we invite unhelpful habits to leave, and stay with whatever happens."

"So, you are browsing for someone to help you. There are many here who can, myself included. Effective therapy is first and foremost about good fit. Can we collaborate on a solution for you? Do I care enough to hear what you are saying and feel what you are not ready to say? Am I patient enough to give you time to share in your own time and in your own way? Am I willing to be directive when you most need it, even though you may not want that? In a word, "Yes.""

Emotionally Focused Therapists
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. Downtown, San Francisco 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.
