About

Are you living a life of "quiet desperation"? Get to the bottom of your problems by connecting with yourself. Psychotherapy can help identify and overcome blocks that prevent you from being your real self. Are you repeating patterns from childhood despite your best efforts not to? Those patterns were likely formed early in childhood as a survival mechanism and now that you no longer need those patterns, they feel like a prison. Psychotherapy provides the key that opens the door. If you are afraid that you cannot do this, please do not sell yourself short and give yourself a chance.
I function in many roles within the Family Court system as a child custody evaluator, reconnection therapist and co-parent counselor. I work with gender non-conforming children and adults (i.e. transsexuals) and sexual minorities. I work with those who do Buddhist meditation, integrating that into the psychotherapy.
My office is located walking distance from the Castro Valley BART station, is wheelchair accessible, is in a residential neighborhood and is near Hayward, San Leandro, San Lorenzo, San Ramon and Oakland. I will be careful and respectful of your feelings, kind but firm, letting you set the pace.
