"I am currently accepting child and adult clients in both San Francisco and Marin. In general, my approach is insight oriented, psychodynamic and solution based. My clients would say that I am excellent at understanding the complex dynamics of both psychological and interpersonal issues. I have excellent rapport with parents and understand that bringing a child into therapy can be a difficult decision. Therapy may be a longer-term process, or it may be brief to solve an immediate crisis. Working together, we can be successful with both approaches. I am also accepting Parent Coordination clients, and Co-Parent Counseling"

Wondering how you ended up in the same uncomfortable situation again or wishing you could just a handle things a little differently this time? Struggling with the uncertainty of life? Maybe you have been feeling out of sorts or unmotivated and can't figure out why. When these feelings and situations arise, therapy can help.

"Clinical psychotherapy is a process of deepening self awareness and supporting people to live more authentically. In my practice I emphasize working with children and adolescents. One of the most essential developmental tasks for young people is to discover who they are. Therapy is profoundly well fit for this process. Developing an understanding of one's emotional landscape at a young age allows for greater maturity and authentic decision making. Therapy helps young people unravel complex family dynamics, thus increasing genuine individuality. The outcome is the ability to be in charge of ourselves with confidence, emotional intelligence, and deep satisfaction."
