"Navigating through our human journey can be daunting, and everyone can benefit from support along the way. My role as a therapist is to help you gain more insight into the nature of your inner world and a greater perspective of your outer circumstances so that you can become empowered to create the intentional and meaningful life that you truly desire. With compassion and deep presence, we will identify unconscious patterns that are limiting you so that you can gain the awareness and tools needed to create effective changes for yourself."

"I believe beginning therapy takes courage, and I have the utmost respect for anyone taking that risk. I strive to create a warm space of total acceptance for where you are in your journey. For as long as I can remember, I've been interested in people's stories. It's not surprising that I ended up doing the work I do. As a therapist, I listen to a person and help make sense of both the struggles and the strengths. I help my clients to find meaning in their experience and to move forward to create new stories."

"I've been treating adults, couples, families, and groups in CA since 1993 (and earlier, children, teens, families, university employees, addictions and psychiatric illness, back east 1985-93). My post-grad training was in Berkeley at The Psychotherapy Institute (long-term psychodynamic) and UCB Counseling & Psychological Services (brief and long-term). Recently I worked at San Francisco Kaiser treating adults, young to elderly, with a full spectrum of mental health and medical concerns. Based on my clinical background, I tailor therapy to your present experience, future hopes, and past conditioning so you can move forward, potentially even be "self-therapeutic.""

"So many of us have been taught to fear our wholeness. We learned that our emotions, our sexuality, our minds or all of the above are too much, or maybe that we are not enough. These messages of fear and shame can make for a long journey back to embodying and loving our dynamic, unique selves. I am here to accompany you on that journey toward self-acceptance and wholeness.
