"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"

I help clients cultivate authentic relationships in their lives; both with themselves and others. I work collaboratively with clients to identify and achieve their goals by meeting them where they are in the present moment. When you experience being criticized, or feel unimportant, misunderstood, unappreciated or unloved, the fight or flight response is activated, and you instinctually react to protect yourself. "

"Therapy can be a source of tremendous relief and gratification. Unhappiness and anxiety that feel unbearable can lessen and disappear when you have someone who can help you understand the reasons for your suffering. A good therapist can also help you more easily get your mind off upsetting thoughts that preoccupy you. Or if you find yourself acting in self-defeating ways, studying it with a therapist can be of enormous help. Ideally, you will leave an initial consultation with a new way of thinking about the problem that brought you in."

"Welcome! I offer short-term and long-term models of psychotherapy for individual adults of all ages and walks of life. I work with a wide range of people who come to therapy for different reasons wether it be symptoms of mood dysregulation such as anxiety or depression, issues related childhood or adult trauma, relationship challenges, dealing with a chronic health condition, a major loss or life transition, or wether it is simply for personal growth and healing. Regardless of the reason that calls a person to seek therapeutic support, my over 15 years of clinical experience have taught me that the heart of the process that unfolds in psychotherapy can be boiled down to a few key principles that apply to most peoples journey of gaining a better degree of psychological wholeness and health. My integrative approach to psychotherapy draws from a number of different schools of thought in the field including classical psychoanalytic/psychodynamic theory, humanistic psychology, Jungian archetypal psychology, CBT/mindfulness based practices, and solution focused therapy.
