I see people as having rich, complex human emotions that are not well described with overly simple and often stigmatizing diagnostic labels like depression or generalized anxiety. Each person is entirely unique, with their own history, strengths, and challenges. In therapy, I will work with you to better understand yourself. When we can understand why you might be feeling or thinking or acting in a way that is not best for you, we can work together to change it in a way that is tailored to your needs and your circumstances.

I generally work with high functioning people at important junctures in life where the suffering is great. Asking for help is often a powerful step of surrendering the ego's attempts to resist change. Symptoms are often a sign that something is trying to wake up inside of you. When you turn your attention inward and get intimate with your inner life you can start to find the energy to heal, to grow and to change.

My approach to helping people through psychological difficulties is based on the idea that a special form of human interaction will increase self-knowledge, develop emotional skills and activate latent potential. I aim to identify unconscious patterns of thinking, feeling and relating that reinforce negative emotion and destructive behavior. My style is directed thoughtful and collaborative. The process of being understood, of learning about the various ways your mind works and of developing a new repertoire of psychological skills will open up new avenues for growth and engagement in your life’s pursuits.

Therapy can be a kind of "care-filled" container to hold and craft whatever work (or play!) you need to move towards the change you seek. I will be a compassionate, and curious traveling companion for this leg of your journey. We all have a natural inclination to adapt, learn, and grow, and it's easy to get stuck and lose touch. I intend our therapy to be a safe AND brave space where we show up first for YOU, all your relationships may benefit. Come clarify the connection to your innate human tendency to learn and grow. **Note: Now accepting candidates for a men's process group.

Do you defer to others too easily? Do you privately criticize yourself while easily finding good qualities in others? Are you more worried about others' reactions than your own? Do you feel anxious about where you stand with people? Living this way - no matter what it looks like from the outside - can feel demanding, frustrating, and perilous. I offer therapy that empowers you to go after what you want in love and work, with less fear of rejection or guilt over being 'selfish'.

I believe people come to therapy when they are ready and because they are actively and consciously seeking a happier, more balanced life. The motivation it takes to make that first phone call is a major step towards positive change. My style of therapy is interpersonal, supportive, open and communicative. I find that most people appreciate some guidance, direction and practical feedback. I also encourage exploration of unconscious repetitive patterns of behavior in relationships and making changes when appropriate.

You may long to live wholeheartedly - and to feel loved and connected - but struggle with anger, depression, loneliness, or inexplicable sadness and anxiety. You may find the stress of work, life, running a household, or parenting has diminished your capacity to feel joy and be creative. Once a source of comfort and pleasure, your intimate relationship may now be disappointing, frustrating, or even deadening. Therapy can help relieve the symptoms of debilitating feelings by uncovering the underlying (and sometimes unconscious) causes, and empower individuals - and couples - to become the authors of the lives they want to live.

#1 You are courageous. It is not easy to ask for help or be willing to look at coping strategies or attachment styles that are no longer serving you. I strive to provide an open unbiased environment to develop a comfortable therapist/client dynamic in order to begin processing past or current issues with a focus on goal setting and starting where you're at. Change happens when you believe it can happen and the only failure is in not trying. I strongly believe that there is no destination, only the journey and in focusing on the process and being mindful, you can achieve anything.

You've done a lot of work on yourself, but you can't seem to get through that last pain point. You may meditate, do yoga, attend workshops, and self-care, but something is missing. Deep inner resistance, a critical voice in your head, or complex trauma still disrupts your life. You're not certain who you are anymore, and you are questioning your path, your relationships, or maybe your day-to-day grind. Lately, you've been doubting your self-worth and contribution. Or maybe a little voice has always been there, disparaging what you do, what you say, and who you are. You are tired of feeling muzzled, muted, and half-alive.

Therapy should not and cannot be "one size fits all." It should be rooted in a consistent, deep effort to understand who you are and what you need, in relation to the resources you have near you. Therapy should also be practical and offer some fairly immediate results, even though bigger change takes time. It's ultimately about collaboration, and the formation of a helpful relationship. Although I have 25 years of clinical experience to bring to our work, it is more important that you feel we have a good match as we enter this work together. I trust that after we talk, you'll know whether it seems like the right match.

Internet Addiction Therapists
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
