My time is split equally between two offices -- Rockridge and Palo Alto. I help couples, families, individual adults and teens face a wide range of challenges, including healing from early life trauma (all severities, including Dissociative Identity Disorder), Bipolar Disorder, personality disorders, personal and professional transitions, relationship and family struggles, dilemmas of faith and fulfillment, and meditation and mindfulness cultivation. I especially enjoy psychotherapy involving collaborations with other therapists and/or blending meditation and other kinds of spiritual practices with psychotherapy. I value diversity -- my clients come from a wide range of orientations, economic means, and cultural backgrounds.

I have a great deal of experience working with severe mental illness, addiction, personality disorders and older adults, and can help you if you just feel you want someone understanding.
Making changes is challenging, but together we can work to find ways to make it more possible. If you are wanting to discover why you do what you do and why you choose the people to do it with that you do, we may work well together. I am very warm and empathic, and enjoy working with you to address the problems that you want to change without judgment.

The kinds of issues I typically work with include relationship problems, depression, anxiety, creative blocks, personality disorders, grief and loss, life transitions, career issues, trauma, abuse, and problems related to sexuality.
Therapy can help you overcome difficulties, live creatively, and feel more alive. Many people become stuck in ways of thinking and living that no longer serve them. Through a caring therapeutic relationship, you can develop the courage to live in a meaningful and fulfilling way. Over the past 17 years, I have helped people with a wide variety of issues work through significant challenges, freeing them to make better choices. In addition to my clinical work, I teach and supervise at various training programs throughout the Bay Area, and am the Director of Counseling at California College of the Arts.

I specialize in helping you with heal from relationship trauma and wounding that may have been created in childhood or from a string of unhealthy relationships with people who were emotionally unavailable, narcissistic, or just emphasized that your needs weren't important.
Have you been in several relationships that have ended poorly? Do you wonder why most of the people in your life are never there when you need them to be? Perhaps, you wonder if you can ever be in a happy healthy relationship, because many people in your life seem unreliable, manipulative, and inconsistent. Maybe you are starting to feel as though you may be better off alone because you doubt whether you will be able to connect with people who value you for who you are. You long for a safe place to connect with someone who understands.

I offer innovative solutions for complex challenges. I focus on the kind of mental health challenges that may threaten your hopes and dreams. Maybe people are using labels that seem chronic and don’t accurately reflect either what you are experiencing or what you’ve been through! Maybe you’ve had experience with institutionalized care and you don’t want to go back! Or maybe you are a family member and don't know how to help. When there is no simple answer for anxiety, depression, emotional pain, social exclusion, abuse or addictive behavior, perhaps it is time to go a little deeper.

I believe psychotherapy is a process that offers a way to understand troubling experiences and relationships that result in unhappiness, disappointments, and dissatisfaction, which build up over the course of life.

Navigating through these experiences in a therapeutic setting can make the difference between tolerating the pain (or even resorting to methods of easing the pain that create more problems) and coming through it more resilient with the ability to live a life with meaning.

I approach the concerns that bring somebody into the consultation room with the humanistic belief that therapy can best take place through a respectful dialogue that fully utilizes the resources of both the therapist and the client. I regard the blocks that make such a dialogue difficult a worthwhile topic of exploration that can yield a strengthening of the capabilities for problem solving and growth. I am a native Spanish speaker from Argentina, and I offer therapy in that language. I also see multicultural couples that need bilingual intermediation. I have a special interest in couples.

It can feel intimidating to seek therapy — like embarking on a path into the deepest woods. Psychotherapy can be likened to traveling through these woods alongside someone trained and experienced in navigating the wilderness. Undertaking the path together, it becomes more possible to move bravely into the dark, scale the hills, descend the slopes, become curious about the landscape, and explore uncharted terrain.
