I treat individuals and couples. I work in a relational and supportive manner, and in an environment that promotes healing. Anxiety, depression, self-esteem problems, relational issues, substance abuse, grief, and spiritual inquiry are some of the reasons people come to my office. I am skilled in helping them heal and resolve issues. Equally important, however, is the discovery of one's unique and unknown self. As a result, my patients most often conclude therapy with old patterns transformed into new and more effective ones. Although psychotherapy is difficult, it can change your life in surprising and wonderful ways.

My specialty is treating people who are depressed, sometimes significantly. Usually they are depressed because they have suffered a significant loss. Through psychotherapy, and sometimes with the aid of medication, I guide their recovery. Then I help the patient discover and heal the wound which is causing the depression.

I had a sister with a serious mental illness. The desire to understand her suffering, I believe, motivated me to become a psychologist. I also like to teach, so in addition, I am an Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at UCSF where I supervise psychiatry residents.
