About

I am a psychoanalyst in private practice in San Francisco. In addition to my clinical work with patients, I also offer consultation for other clinicians and teach and supervise with various psychoanalytic sites in the Bay Area. My writing about the intersection between Buddhism and psychoanalysis has received awards from NCSPP, a local psychoanalytic organization, and APsaA, a national one. I can help guide you in the process of more clearly seeing and navigating your emotional landscape - why you might be prone to anger or worry, why accomplishments feel fleeting, or why things aren't working as you'd like interpersonally.
Once we better understand the difficulties, I can also help you figure out what to do about them by making changes both on the inside as well in your external life. I also see children ages 4 and older in play therapy. In addition to my training in clinical psychology, I hold a BA in Buddhist Studies from Columbia University and a MFA from Yale.
I have practiced meditation extensively for over twenty years. While I rarely bring this practice explicitly into sessions, my background helps me to sustain a focused, calm attention and a compassionate and curious attitude toward whatever arises in a session.
