Life is stressful, and sometimes it seems overwhelming. That's where I can help. Many of my clients are highly motivated, achievement-oriented professionals who feel held back or "stuck." Some are dealing with stress and anxiety, some are having trouble finding focus or motivation, and many are trying to clarify their purpose and direction. I help them find a way through these issues--particularly as they show up in the workplace. Like it or not, we spend a huge amount of time and energy at work, so it's important that we spend it well.

As a therapist, I am passionate about walking alongside folks as they reveal their truths and vulnerabilities to themselves. I believe, and have witnessed that people are capable of long standing change with knowledge, support, and connection, and that therapy is a great place for that. You can learn new ways to manage life stressors, feel safe, gain confidence, and live a more joyful and purposeful life. I use cognitive behavioral, solution-focused, and strength-based techniques, while never ignoring the human element and connection where the real change happens.

As an empath, intuitive, or highly sensitive person, you experience this world in a deeper, more complex, and intuitive way. You feel the joys and pains of other beings as if they were your very own. This can bring experiences of tremendous joy and love, as well as overwhelm, sacrifice, and suffering. With so much pain in the world, it's hard to discover what you need, or believe you deserve it. As a an empath, intuitive, and highly sensitive person - I understand. I designed my practice to support people just like you - to help you create a life joyfully centered in your own sacred needs, gifts, and ways of being. You deserve joy.

Are you not feeling like your usual self nowadays? Are stress, politics, work, relationship pressure, relocation and/or COVID-19 overwhelming? Is there just way too much going on? Are you looking to feel more calm, more relaxed, less upset, and more happy? Sometimes our brain won't turn off and stop worrying, sometimes it is difficult to get out of bed or get a good night's rest, other times it is tough to buckle down and focus. Therapy can help... even if you're not sure how. I see mental health as part of one's overall wellness. My approach focuses on having fewer negative emotions and also on experiencing more positive emotions.

I've been treating adults, couples, families, and groups in CA since 1993 (and earlier, children, teens, families, university employees, addictions and psychiatric illness, back east 1985-93). My post-grad training was in Berkeley at The Psychotherapy Institute (long-term psychodynamic) and UCB Counseling & Psychological Services (brief and long-term). Recently I worked at San Francisco Kaiser treating adults, young to elderly, with a full spectrum of mental health and medical concerns. Based on my clinical background, I tailor therapy to your present experience, future hopes, and past conditioning so you can move forward, potentially even be "self-therapeutic."

So many of us have been taught to fear our wholeness. We learned that our emotions, our sexuality, our minds or all of the above are too much, or maybe that we are not enough. These messages of fear and shame can make for a long journey back to embodying and loving our dynamic, unique selves. I am here to accompany you on that journey toward self-acceptance and wholeness. If you have experienced social marginalization, or felt like an outsider I can help you heal the neurological trauma caused just by being different.

To everyone around you, it looks like you've "got it together." But deep inside, you feel like an impostor. Even though your life looks great on the surface, you feel chronically anxious, as if it could all fall apart at any moment. You'd like to be more authentic, but you worry about what would happen if other people knew the "real" you. Sometimes, you wonder if you've spent so much time faking it that you've lost sight of your true self altogether.
