I'm a psychotherapist, relationship specialist, wife and mom. Many of us can recognize patterns of our behavior that were previously helpful but now get in the way of the kinds of relationships we want. In many ways navigating difficult circumstances allowed us to survive or even thrive, however the ways we find now to cope don’t benefit us in the long run. The ways these interactions show up can surprise us at times, because while our lives can feel full and abundant, there can also be a flip side of sadness, resentment, and worry.

I work with clients at my office in Oakland near the Rockridge Bart Station. I prefer to work with a client who will come to sessions even when it is challenging to do so and allow the therapy relationship to open up space for safe exploration of the realities of life, ways to cope with reality, and improve spiritual and mental strength. Therefore, my client would demonstrate commitment to the therapy relationship, whether it is for brief therapy or long-term work, by doing the work necessary to understand the self and make necessary life decisions in order to maximize the availability of life energy.

When you're looking for a Therapist, it's not an easy time. You’ve struggled to change behavior patterns, communicate better and gotten nowhere, Now you feel powerless as well as in a mess. If someone has mentioned you talking to a professional, you could often catch yourself anxiously focusing on what you imagine other people are thinking about you. You might be surprised at the amount of relief you can feel by talking to a caring, invested but objective professional about what's going on and getting some perspective. You can start exactly where you are.

Hi, My name is Scott. My interest in health and wellness began as a young adult after going through the mental health care system myself and having countless hours of unsuccessful therapy sessions. After many years of personal self-discovery and thousands of hours of professional training, I've been able to create an approach to psychotherapy that really works, and a life that I love and know I deserve. Choosing to do my own inner-work provides me with greater insight and makes me a therapist with integrity, one who is direct, results oriented, extremely resilient, and very compassionate.

Welcome! And congratulations on making it this far on your journey of healing and personal-growth. Acknowledging that you need help is not easy and takes strength and courage. Maybe you are feeling “stuck” in life, overwhelmed with your daily responsibilities, are struggling with feelings of anxiety or depression, or are having a difficult time reclaiming your life after trauma. Regardless of your reason for being here, making the choice to start therapy is an important one, and you have already taken the first step.

As a depth psychotherapist, one of the things I do is help my clients know their unknown issues. I do this by creating a safe therapeutic environment in which to explore and bring repair to the past injuries and traumas holding my clients back from experiencing life and relationships in a full and meaningful way. I like to look at my client's dreams, artwork, and daily life experiences, to bring light and insight to blockages and barriers to their full experience and enjoyment of life. Such blockages can be past trauma, incorrect embedded beliefs, and ingrained thought patterns and habits.

I believe that everyone has the right and the ability to achieve an engaged, balanced, satisfying life. My goal is to offer an open, non-judgmental, and safe therapeutic relationship so that personal growth and change can take place.

Parenting can be a deeply conflictual experience. Sometimes we agree with Bette Davis who said "If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent." Other times we identify with Anne Lamott's notion that "There really are places in the heart you don't even know exist until you love a child." The seemingly unpredictable alternation of positive and negative feelings that come with raising a family can be painful and bewildering, and our self-esteem as parents suffers most when it becomes difficult to access the good in our closest relationships.
