Are you tired of dog-paddling in a sea of thumbs-down emotions? Sick of feeling isolated by all of the social-distancing? How about finding it increasingly more difficult to control angry outbursts or crying spells? Is the lack of privacy and self-care causing emotional drain, and negatively impacting your relationships with family, friends, or your partner? If you answered, "Yes" to any of these questions, welcome. Welcome to your humanity. You are not alone.

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.

Our thoughts, emotions and actions are all connected. During periods of high stress, negative thoughts and overwhelming emotion can cause dysfunction in our daily lives. Therapy can support you in reframing negative thoughts, so you can better manage your emotional experience and thus, change harmful actions toward yourself and others. My experience includes working with adolescents, teens, families and adults struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, attachment, opposition, relationship and behavioral problems. I believe that therapy is a collaborative partnership between the client and therapist.

I'm here to help find fulfilling and lifelong sexual/intimate satisfaction, whether you are partnered or single, straight, gay, bi, poly, kinky, asexual, furry or fandom. These days, so many of us are seeking less stress and more balance. The Bay Area is a worldly place, many come excited by its progressive sexual energy. Others may find sex confusing, challenging to talk about, or even perhaps, their worst nightmare. Most want better ways to communicate, especially about sex; perhaps to deepen love and connection, or for a path to restore trust and find pleasure. Sex can be juicy and life affirming, I am here to help you find that.

No one should have to feel alone or unsupported during life's difficulties. Many of my clients come to therapy because they are experiencing depression, anxiety, or loneliness. These difficulties are often related to their relationships, identity struggles, trauma, or major life transitions. I enjoy working with individuals who feel overwhelmed/stuck, and/or disconnected from themselves, peers, or significant others, in order to help them regain confidence and connection. Additionally, I often work with couples (engaged/dating/married) who are distressed and struggling to connect, communicate, and find peace in their relationships.

*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.

Being compassionate with our self is important when we undertake personal change. Our internal critic and negative thoughts can leave us feeling defeated. When we're disconnected from our authentic self or from others, we suffer. Disconnection can result from many circumstances, for example living by other's expectations at the expense of pursuing our own goals. Or, the busy pace of life can leave people feeling disconnected and alienated. When we re-connect with our self and other people, we're more able to manage life's stressors using healthy means and live a more peaceful and contented life.
