About

I have been in practice in Burlingame for over 25 years, specializing in couples' therapy and the treatment of individual adults having problems with depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. These issues can be the result of poor self-esteem, stress, trauma or abuse, grief and loss and difficulties with relationships. Some people are at higher risk for depression and anxiety because of their inherited biology as well as their learned patterns of thought and behavior. I work with my clients to understand their unique situation, to set goals and to provide treatment based on evidence from behavioral science research.
As a Gottman certified couples' therapist, I've been trained in methods based on 40 years of research with over 4,000 couples. I'll work with you to improve your communication, manage conflict in healthy ways, restore trust (especially after a betrayal) and rebuild the friendship and intimacy that originally brought you together.
Additional training and certification: EMDR (level II +) a technique for treatment of post-traumatic stress; EMOTIONALLY FOCUSED THERAPY FOR COUPLES: Core Skills completion; MINDFULNESS TRAINING: a wonderful tool for learning how to use the mind to help manage depression, lower stress, balance reactivity, gain insight and work with obsessive, anxious thinking or addictive/compulsive behaviors.
