My orientation is cognitive and behavioral (CBT). I'm a caring compassionate listener and also actively engage with clients to elicit thoughts, feelings, and strategies for healing. My specialties include eating disorders, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, couples, family issues, parenting, teens, and children nine and older. My therapy approach is directive and problem-solving while encouraging self-acceptance and compassion. I believe that everyone is capable of change at his or her own rate and comfort level. I help my clients eliminate self-critical thinking that too often sabotages their happiness and their relationships.

My book, Treat Your Partner Like a Dog: How to Breed a Better Relationship, contains tips, tools, couples' case studies (with identifying information removed), and dog references in a humorous and instructive manner. I have also written a book on eating disorders called, "Appetite for Life," and I write a column called Family Focus for the Lamorinda News.

I enjoy actively helping people explore issues, understand their deeper emotions, and find ways to improve their relationships and their lives. We work together in ways that often produce more light-heartedness as we build awareness, confidence and self-acceptance.
