"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."

"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 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."

"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."

"Sometimes, things happen in life that cause us significant pain, whether this stems from early life experiences, life transitions, interpersonal difficulties or unexpected crisis. 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."

"Often clients come into therapy with me when they are stuck in life, in a crisis, or in transition in a relationship or job or when emotions are just becoming too much to cope with. They want a change but are not always sure how to go about it. Taking the step to begin therapy is not easy for most people, but starting therapy often leads to a real opportunity to change, in ways that are not always expected. My style is warm, inviting and engaging, and I seek to connect to each person where they are at in life."

"The three core things I believe about psychotherapy: 1. People are inherently healthy. 2. Therapy is not just about symptoms. 3. There is nothing mysterious about whether therapy is working. Traditionally, psychotherapy has been associated with illness while emotional health has been left to the self-help movement. The theory I practice sees everyone as essentially healthy. As a result, there is no ceiling on "getting better." People with symptoms want to feel more like him or herself which I aim to accomplish as quickly as possible. Someone coping pretty well, however, might seek help to become more effective."
