"I enjoy helping bright, creative people who feel passionate about life, yet feel stuck or dissatisfied with some aspect of their life. Intelligence, ambition and success are often accompanied by unexpected challenges and difficulties. Fulfillment in one area of one's life doesn't guarantee satisfaction in other areas. I've had excellent academic training (Yale, UC Berkeley), and extensive clinical training. The breadth and depth of my training allows me to tailor a treatment plan to the specific needs of each client or couple. My orientation is relational and psychodynamic, informed by research on human development and psychotherapy. Visit my website for more information."

"Difficult feelings can be a gateway for personal growth. I work with many individuals struggling with depression and anxiety, trauma, problems in relationships, stress management, and life transitions. My approach is to help you explore those difficult thoughts, feelings, and past experiences which prevent you from being comfortable with who you would like to be, what you want in your life, and the kinds of relationships that you want to have with others."

"Live your truth. Follow your bliss. Do you. Sounds simple, right? Except that, all too often, we convince ourselves that who we are is not enough, that what we want is undeserved. So we stifle our talents, ignore our truth and deny our deepest desires. Before we know it, we’re living someone else’s life, satisfying everyone’s expectations but our own. All to earn the love and acceptance we don’t feel worthy of otherwise. But it doesn’t have to be this way."
