"It can seem impossible to figure things out, to feel loved, secure, less lonely, frightened or sad. Work, family and social demands can cause stress and/or burn-out. People get caught in cycles of porn/sexual addiction, video games or online surfing that derails them. I'm seasoned and adept at providing safety to think things through. I see many types of people from widely diverse cultural backgrounds and with different sexual orientations. My approach is engaging, warm and exploratory. I provide help at times of crisis, or when life feels unsatisfying, frozen, boring, numb or sad."

"I specialize in serving GIFTED PROFESSIONAL AND CREATIVE ADULTS AND COUPLES. Being gifted is a minority experience, which is hard to own or talk about due to cultural (mis)attributions of elitism and arrogance, so many gifted people have not explored this aspect of their identity and how this may be related to difficulties in their life. You may feel out of step with the world or misunderstood, and not know why, or that you have to hide aspects of yourself. Or have trouble making friends, be told you’re "too intense", feel socially awkward, not understand why others seem to respond negatively to your ideas, or feel deeply disappointed with the world’s imperfections. IN MY OFFICE, YOU CAN BE UNRESERVEDLY YOURSELF. Talking frankly about being gifted can improve your self-esteem and offer relief from self-doubt, loneliness, anxiety, or depression, as you develop strategies to meet the majority culture more effectively. Before becoming a psychologist, I worked for 25 years in startups, nonprofits, academia, and F500 companies. I hold a Stanford MBA and Berkeley MSEE, and have special training in assisting gifted clients. I've also published research on the creative process."

"My therapeutic style is grounded in Existential/Humanistic and Cognitive-Behavioral therapy with a pragmatic, down-to-earth style. Each client's therapy is individualized, collaborative, and strengths based. I help clients learn to regulate and manage feelings that overwhelm them and negatively affect their thoughts, moods, and attitudes that, in turn, lead to destructive behavior. Whether it is anxiety, depression, diminished self-esteem, or relationship issues, individual clients come to understand their present circumstances in light of their past. I am committed to helping clients improve relationships and gain self knowledge in order to create meaningful, joyful and healthy lives."

"A lot of us have a hard time asking for help. Fear, shame, or needing to be self-sufficient are feelings that can get in the way of recognizing when we need help--and reaching out and asking for it. My approach to therapy creates a safe place where sensitive, painful or scary feelings can be openly explored without judgment. We form a partnership to figure out what is going on and how to move forward. I'm actively engaged in our work--it's a partnership, after all--to help you overcome problem behaviors and develop better ways of coping."

"I enjoy working with clients who want more than traditional "talk" therapy. I understand you might feel like just talking about your life cannot change your experience of it. You may be asking how can therapy make a difference? My approach is informed by the practice of mindfulness - the non-judgmental observation of the present moment. Research has shown mindfulness to be a highly effective treatment for depression, anxiety, and addiction. How is working in mindfulness different? In mindfulness we learn how to shift our emotional state from one of suffering to more empowered states of aliveness."

"Most of us lug around a suitcase full of our thoughts, feelings, family history and past experiences and have no idea what's in there. Our current responses to and experience of life come from the contents of that suitcase. Together in therapy we gently unpack it. We will see what is working for you, what needs more support and what has served it's purpose but no longer works. I work collaboratively and am curious about all the things that make you who you are. I am particularly interested in working with people who feel misunderstood or unimportant."

Internet addiction (or sometimes formally referred to as internet addiction disorder or "IAD") applies to internet overuse, problematic computer use, or excessive computer use that interferes with ones day to day life. Whether overuse of the internet can be classed as an "addiction" is disputed. But online activities such as compulsive gambling or shopping (sometimes called net compulsions) or reading or playing computer games, can be troubling when they interfere with life's regular activities-even in San Francisco-such as work, sleep or study.

Internet addictive behaviors in San Francisco might include excessive, overwhelming, or inappropriate pornography use, gaming, online social networking, blogging, email, or internet shopping. Although not all compulsive behaviors may themselves be addictive.Check here for an internet addiction Therapist in San Francisco, San Francisco internet addiction Therapists or internet addiction counseling
