The question we struggle with is, whats not working? How do you change so that you can get unstuck and pursue what is meaningful? These are the questions we'd explore and answer together. Through appreciation of both conscious ideas and the pull of unconscious/historical forces we would work to focus on what can be understood, what can be altered and what must be accepted.

I've been practicing psychology in Sausalito for over 20 years. The people with whom I work are normally functioning individuals who come in to explore issues that represent some ongoing disruptive pattern in their lives. Together, we actively engage in discourse intended to stimulate meaningful insights and reflections; as we consider possible changes that may help them to lead more genuine and integrated lives.

My approach as a psychotherapist is to meet my clients where they are, honoring their unique life experiences, offering strategies and responses that address their specific needs. I understand psychotherapy as a collaborative process. I practice listening deeply, with curiosity and respect, to support my clients’ innate capacity for self-awareness, growth, and well-being. Effective therapy requires authentic contact between therapist and client.  I am a fellow traveler, working on my own growth and transformation, while in service to my clients.

Make therapy a gift to yourself and the journey of a lifetime. Experience the therapeutic process as an exploration into a landscape full of your own creative capacities, strengths, and dreams that already exist. Replace out-dated belief systems with new ones that better reflect your current, authentic self. Continue the process of growing into the person you believe yourself to be. Move from the victim to the empowered. I work in collaborative ways with you, helping to identifying assumptions, thoughts, and beliefs that are keeping you from the experiences, relationships, and life that you want.

I believe that coming to therapy is about making a home in ourselves: a home where we feel at ease, where all the different parts of us are okay and we don't feel that something is wrong with who we are. When life gets hard we can feel isolated and cutoff - from the people around us, and also from ourselves. When we most need to feel compassion towards ourselves it can be hardest to find. My work is to help you find that compassion for yourself and to support you in strengthening your capacity to meet whatever life brings with courage and confidence.

Therapy should be easy to understand and active from the word go. We don't just talk about the problem or figure out why the patterns are there; we hit the ground running with action and get you feeling better as soon as possible. I work with a lot of folks who have tried therapy before and been disappointed when insight and understanding don't lead to change, and folks who are trying therapy for the first time and want it to be practical and clear. I start with a free 20-minute phone consultation.

People turn to therapy when they are in too much emotional pain, stuck in intractable situations with intimate partners or at work, or acting in ways that are self-destructive or harmful to others. When other solutions have not worked, therapy offers a chance to address and change outmoded ways of being. The therapeutic relationship is key to this work. It offers the possibility of exploring new ways of relating to ourselves and others that can lead to a richer and more fulfilling life. The therapist must provide a place of safety and be a partner in this process.

It takes courage to start working with a new therapist. The very fact that you’re considering it probably means you’re getting ready to make some significant changes in your life. My approach to therapy focuses on understanding and accepting you as you are right now, and creating a safe space where you can figure out where you want to go from here. We’ll work together as you get ready to make the sometimes tough (and rewarding) changes that will give you a better life. We will also deal with any stresses you're experiencing due to the coronavirus, including the isolation of sheltering in place and uncertainties about the future.

Anxiety sucks. It can keep us stuck in an exhausting inner battle of fear and panic. Perhaps you have had a panic attack and worry about having another one. Or maybe you find yourself frequently worrying about your relationship with your partner. Obsessive thoughts might be keeping you up at night and disrupting your ability to focus at work. And you might feel shame or embarrassment that you can't get your anxiety under control. You might be trying to cope with your anxiety by staying busy, distracting yourself with technology, or turning to drugs or drinking. The good news is, it does not have to be this way.

“The best things in life are on the other side of fear.” You (or your teen) struggle with anxiety. You spend hours worrying and judging yourself. Your body is tense and exhausted, and you struggle to show up for your life. Or you’re so afraid of having another panic attack that you’ve given up activities that matter to you, and now you’re watching your life shrink before your eyes. You’ve tried all kinds of ways to get rid of anxiety - relaxation, meditation, etc. - and nothing has worked. You’re confused, frustrated, and nearly hopeless. You don’t understand why this is happening, how to make it go away, or even what to do next.
