Emotional problems can be difficult to cope with and resolve alone. Whether you have experienced a painful loss, are suffering from anxiety or depression, are feeling stifled in your relationships, or cannot seem to reach your goals, the help of an experienced professional can assist you in initiating the changes that will allow you to lead a more satisfying life. Understanding your emotional life is essential to your personal and professional well being. We use to have this top-down notion that reason was superior to emotion. However, recent research clearly shows that we think better when we know and can process our emotions.

My practice focuses on working with people struggling with anxiety, depression, eating disorders and individuals frustrated with their inability to form or maintain lasting relationships. My experience and training enables me to help you understand and work through the conflicts, disappointments and grief that stand in your way.

I enjoy my work and consider it a privilege to work with my clients. Centrally located, my office is on the corner of Bush and Octavia in San Francisco. Street parking and bus routes are easily accessible.
