Offices in Fremont and Santa Rosa: You can think of me as a professional guide for your personal growth. Most people seek psychotherapy from me to guide them through anxiety, depression, relationship problems, and self-improvement. The majority of my background is working with adults: individually or in group therapy. Since I am certified and trained in several "best practice" approaches, it is likely we can find an approach that can be effective for you. I also provide some specialized services including psychological testing for attention problems and sex/couple therapy. Please visit my website if you would like more details.
I believe the most helpful psychotherapy includes a genuine human connection balanced with the artful science of research-proven psychology. My approach to therapy has been described as interactive, focused, and practical, so that you make choices that are best for you in the long run and start feeling better as quickly as possible.
I have a particular interest in helping people integrate the seemingly contradictory parts of themselves in a non-judgmental way. That may include finding helpful perspective on your relationships, family, work, spirituality, sexuality, diversity, and culture. The easiest way to get started is to send me an email and we can figure out the next steps.
