I have a particular expertise in attachment issues, and specialize in helping to resolve early trauma and grief in adults and children.
Most people seek out a psychologist when they have truly done their best to resolve their difficulties on their own. When you can't see your own emotional blind spots, feeling stuck and distressed can ripple through many areas of your life. Perhaps this is your first time seeking out a therapist, or perhaps you are returning to psychotherapy for a fresh perspective. As a psychologist with over 17 years of experience, I have a seasoned understanding of what leads people to hit roadblocks in their lives, in areas including work, school, marriage, parenting, family, and intimate relationships.

Since 2013, my psychotherapy practice has helped individuals better manage and understand experiences of depression and anxiety as well as life transitions, grief, and loss.
These are most challenging times, and many of us are feeling stretched to our limits. The pandemic; economic uncertainty; social and political unrest; historic fires and record number of hurricanes. This is a time in which depression and anxiety may be an appropriate response. And, as your therapist, I have confidence that people are helped when they put their unique challenges into words and have them explored and understood in relationship.

Therapy is a confidential space to explore areas where you are feeling stuck, experiencing difficulty, or contemplating change, with the goal of feeling more confident and whole as a person. I work with adult individuals who seek a deeper understanding of, and relief from, their suffering: depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, relationship problems, spiritual/existential questions, and various forms of addiction (pornography, hypersexuality, substance abuse). Many times, addiction is accompanied by interactions with the legal system and therapy can be a safe space to process thoughts and feelings about legal problems or incarceration.

Therapy is about uncovering patterns that restrict emotions, thoughts, experience, and behavior. I see a variety of clients, from tech leaders to stay at home parents. The client feedback I receive is that I am especially helpful at relationships, career related issues, grief and loss, perfectionism, and self esteem. I have been in private practice for 20 years, and I am the onsite therapist at Google's SF Wellness Center, where clients have specifically sought me out. Clients find me easy to connect with, and appreciate my warmth, sense of humor, and ability to dissect issues. Together, we will work deeply in a safe environment.

I work with people who face challenges that often arise but are not exclusive to the second half of life such as: the trauma of illness & death, caring for aging parents, loss of satisfaction or sense of meaning in relationships and work, loss of a job, and/or loneliness. I also work with folks suffering from love addiction or love avoidance. These challenges can often be baffling and carry symptoms such as depression, fear and anxiety. The rational mind may understand what is going on but somehow the emotional and physical body can't always take solace in rational solutions.

Grief can hit you like a ton of bricks, out of nowhere or over the smallest things. It can feel all-consuming, lonely, and confusing. I’m talking about all sorts of loss; death of a loved one, loving someone with a terminal illness, losing a family pet, losing a job, breaking up with a partner, pregnancy termination, and more. Each one has it's own unique character and pain, just as no loss is the same as another. And still, we can find connection through loss to ourselves, our loved ones, our humanity and our future.

The most significant predictor of a successful therapy experience is the quality of the relationship between therapist and client. Building a safe, nurturing relationship is where I excel. My style is warm and highly interactive, best suited for clients who prefer a therapist who feels very human, less like the old "medical model." I assist clients to explore their thought patterns and corresponding emotional reactions, and to identify unconscious assumptions they hold about themselves, which inform their behavioral patterns. I also provide practical tools for regulating anxiety, managing depression, and processing grief & loss.

I welcome diversity of all kinds and have experience working with a wide range of issues including life transitions, grief and loss, anxiety, depression, high sensitivity, trauma, parenting and relationships.
Bravely stepping out of our comfort zone and navigating with curiosity and an open mind what we find challenging and painful allows us to grow and transform. My job is to help you feel safe, understood and connected while engaging in this exploration together. My approach is compassionate, non-judgmental and collaborative, ultimately trusting in your wisdom and inner knowing. I have found that by bringing awareness and compassion to our minds, emotions and bodies we are able to notice conditioned beliefs, thoughts and behaviors that may no longer serve us. Through this work we can move toward greater agency and acceptance.

Grief Therapists
Grief is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.

If you're looking for a San Francisco grief therapist, these professionals provide grief therapy and counseling in San Francisco.
