""Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, the world offers itself to your imagination...." In Wild Geese, Mary Oliver does not promise salvation, but points to the okay-ness of your being, to the importance of your inner world. How do you, in your imagination, relate to the world? You can find peace inside yourself. I believe therapy is about wholeness-it's not about rejecting who you already are, but about including all aspects of yourself. With compassion and honesty, let's explore the full you so that you may find your inner peace."

"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."

"Welcome to my page. I offer a free 30 minute initial consultation to help determine comfort level and fit. I am not a psychologist who specializes in everything, but do have extensive experience working in some areas. These include adult ADHD, trauma (PTSD), transitional aged youth (18-24), bipolar spectrum disorders, marital/relational therapy and the more common disorders (major depression, anxiety). My approach aims to provide at least some immediate symptom relief and is practical. However, many situations cannot be so quickly resolved, therefore I am also attentive to unconscious processes, relational patterns and family-of-origin issues."

"Each client walks through my door with their own struggle. And although each person comes with their own unique story, the one thing that clients do share is a search for a more fulfilled life or a greater sense of self. I support clients as they navigate life's harder transitions - a loss of a relationship, the transition to becoming a parent, a job transition, or simply figuring out who they truly are and want to be. We work together to notice and shift your inner critic that so frequently gets in the way. Additionally, I support couples as they work through the challenges and desires that come with a relationship. "

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. 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. 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.
