"My work with adults comes with understanding, compassion and extensive training. I have years of experience working with such issues as, but not limited to, addiction; depression, postpartum depression, and bipolar disorders; anxiety and panic disorders; trauma; relationship, parenting, and family issues; life transition and questions like "What do I really want?" and "What is important to me?" 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 and offers new ways of thinking and feeling."

"I treat patients experiencing significant distress due to issues stemming from old familial wounds, from trauma, from painful life transitions, from ungrieved loss, from relational conflicts, from wrenching clashes between how one experiences oneself versus how society demands one be. This distress may have been labeled with stigmatizing diagnoses that might feel like a permanent stamp. I practice with the assumption that distress can resolve, that suffering can heal, that diagnoses are symptoms of the human condition, not indelible marks on one's being."

"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 work with individual adults of all ages as well as with couples: I like to listen to you, metaphorically speaking, with two ears: what you say and how you say it. I like to understand your internal make-up and the dynamics of your interpersonal relationships. I also want to understand with you how it all fits together. Perhaps, through collaborative curiosity, I can help you alter habits from back then that don't serve you in the here and now of your life at this time. I believe that relationships to yourself and others are critically important."

"The desire for healing is a precious thing, and when you finally take the first steps towards that desire, you may be concerned about the idea of entrusting the deepest parts of your heart and psyche to a stranger. My open, gentle and calming presence can allow you to open to yourself, to directly experience the sense of safety and trust that you will need to begin the healing process and to reclaim the lost, wounded and hidden parts of yourself. My extensive knowledge about psychodynamic theory, personality disorders, addictions, and codependency can help you understand and free yourself from addictive or abusive situations. "

"Therapy should be both practical and authentically personal. I've found that most people seek therapy to solve a specific problem, and we usually start by focusing on this. However, I've also found that most people leave therapy citing their connection with their therapist as being the most transformative and important element of their treatment. I think these are complementary goals, and I hope to combine practical problem-solving with an authentic personal connection to help you find your happiest life."
