I am currently accepting child and adult clients in both San Francisco and Marin. In general, my approach is insight oriented, psychodynamic and solution based. My clients would say that I am excellent at understanding the complex dynamics of both psychological and interpersonal issues. I have excellent rapport with parents and understand that bringing a child into therapy can be a difficult decision. Therapy may be a longer-term process, or it may be brief to solve an immediate crisis. Working together, we can be successful with both approaches. I am also accepting Parent Coordination clients, and Co-Parent Counseling
My 27 years of experience have focused on treating adults and children with a multitude of problems; difficulties with life transitions and more serious issues as ADD/ADHD, depression, anxiety and bereavement. I work with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues, while providing a comfortable and supportive environment.
My practice is currently focused on children & adult psychotherapy, as well as families experiencing a high conflict divorce. My background in child and adult psychotherapy, bereavement and trauma make me be unique in my ability to help others during the most difficult transitions in life. I often have long and enduring relationships with my clients.
