Therapy can lead to better relationships and more ease in our lives. I work with individuals and couples to find more clarity and balance in their lives. Sometimes we avoid parts of our life or ourselves that are painful. Together we will get to know these hurt parts and how they show up, whether it is through fears and worries, the critical voice you hear inside, or a feeling of being stuck, lost, alone or helpless.

We often come to therapy in crisis. Something has gone wrong in a relationship. Major, disorienting life transitions are underway. Emotional experiences are becoming increasingly overwhelming. Life seems stuck, static, depressing. Anxiety is on the rise. A series of events have altered our course. We are feeling lost. Therapy can offer a soothing lifeboat for these rough seas. Often crisis is a wake up call, a time for necessary change, new growth, a reconnoitering of the landscape, a vivid reorientation. My practice is designed to move you from crisis to care, from care to confidence, confidence to creative, enlivening capacity.

*Accepting new clients* Your mind is filled with thoughts of worry or fear, your body reacts with uncomfortable sensations, and you want to avoid or escape situations. You often feel sad and don’t understand why, or how to feel relief. You avoid activities that could be enjoyable, which affect your relationships and social life. You lack the motivation or energy for daily tasks that used to be automatic. Maybe you experienced a horrible event, or a painful, stressful period in your life and you believe your life is forever changed. If you experienced this struggle prior to Covid-19, your feelings are likely heightened right now.

Crises and painful emotions can be the beginning of a journey toward transformation and wisdom. If you are looking for a deeper and more connected sense of yourself, and fulfillment in life, then you may be ready for a commitment to the therapeutic process. I believe my empathic presence - the capacity to hear, see and feel a situation from the other person's vantage point- is central to the healing process. Within such a safe relationship the patient can develop an open attitude toward the unconscious; exploration of the meaning and purpose of one's life can unfold.

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in San Francisco using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.

As an approach to therapy, 'family therapy' (also referred to as family systems therapy, marital therapy, marriage therapy, marriage and family therapy, marital therapy and family counseling) views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members or couples.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in San Francisco are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in San Francisco
