"I'm a "seasoned" psychologist in practice for 40 years. I enjoy working with people from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds and have always preferred having a "general practice" which allows addressing a wide range of personal concerns. While each individual requires a unique approach; the transformative power of therapy is rooted in the trusting relationship that evolves between you & I. It's the alliance between us which helps you become the person you aspire to be. The work is serious but also allows for having a bit of fun while seeking the most gratifying life to foster a sense of fulfilling purpose for yourself. "

Most likely, you are reaching out because you want to work through unhelpful patterns, heal old wounds or learn new ways of coping and relating. In my offices in Sausalito and San Francisco I work with adults and older adolescents seeking help for depression or anxiety, or support with navigating a difficult loss or life transition. In addition, I assist individuals who wish to understand and transform patterns that are negatively impacting their relationships, work and/or parenting. My specialties are trauma, PTSD and complex trauma."

"Much like a process of sharing, therapist and client together learn to pay close attention to aspects of yourself that you may be unable to touch on your own. One approach to understanding our behavior is to gain awareness of our unconscious drives and desires through our dreams. Currently I am doing telemedicine."

"Real change is possible. I work with individuals, partners and families to transform their lives past what they thought possible. Trauma can be overcome, relationships can dramatically improve, and physical symptoms can be effectively addressed. A connection to yourself and your true needs can be reclaimed and navigated. Life can become richer, relationships more vibrant, and experience of being alive improved. This is true even if you have been abused, neglected, traumatized, don't understand why you feel this way, have been living like this for years, and have tried everything else."
