"Skillful, compassionate therapy offers hope and guidance when times are tough. Most likely, you are reaching out because you want to work through unhelpful patterns, heal old wounds or learn new ways of coping and relating. In my offices in Sausalito and San Francisco I work with adults and older adolescents seeking help for depression or anxiety, or support with navigating a difficult loss or life transition. In addition, I assist individuals who wish to understand and transform patterns that are negatively impacting their relationships, work and/or parenting. My specialties are trauma, PTSD and complex trauma."

"My approach to therapy emphasizes self knowledge, empowerment and insight helping move towards a more integral, meaningful and gratifying life. It is with passion and kindness that I witness the healing transformation a person goes through in the therapeutic relationship. Originally from Brazil, I speak English, Spanish, and Portuguese working with clients who speak these languages. Three theories permeate my work: the Integral theory of Ken Wilber, Psychodynamic theory, and Hakomi. I integrate into the analysis the physical, mental, emotional, and social parts of the self (Integral) in a mindfulness-based, body inclusive, and experiential perspective (Hakomi)."

"As a Jungian analyst I see children and adults for depth-oriented psychotherapy. I use a relational model focussing on feelings that come up between myself and my client as we work on the outer and inner concerns. Images from dreams, sandplay and art are integrated into the analytic work to explore deeper meanings and to elucidate concerns. I use play therapy & sandplay as appropriate for children and offer other age appropriate materials. I believe in a growth rather than a pathology oriented process, viewing problems-in-living as an opportunity to further self-development, growth, and awareness."

"I find it rewarding to work with men and women who are skeptical or unfamiliar with psychotherapy. There are many different schools of psychotherapy and this can be confusing. I enjoy educating people as to how best to make use of psychotherapy for their particular needs or crisis. I promote an open dialogue about how our working together is feeling and whether it is producing the results they want. Some clients seek short term help while some seek deeper exploration into their personality, dreams and conflicts. For them I offer a Jungian Analytic approach."

" I consider clients as equal participants in therapy sessions. I prefer to think of “the client” as “the initiator” and more importantly, as “the expert” in their own process. My role is “the reflector” of your unfolding process. I believe that each of us inherently has the ability to transform, and that this transformation can happen rapidly. My role as your reflector is to help you access your own inner healer. I do so with loving kindness and an emphasis on present-moment awareness. Together, we create a container where you can feel safe to access and express whatever wants to come forth. The work you do to heal – we do together!"

"Often, the beliefs we carry about ourselves don't originate with us, or it can be hard to locate the source of our emotions. Maybe certain thoughts and memories seem like they are more than you can handle; or perhaps you are well aware of patterns you would like to change but don't know where to start. When we are in the thick of things, we are too close to see clearly. What therapy offers is another set of eyes, an aerial view that enables you to observe our own life more objectively.
