I believe that we grow through our struggles. They often point to parts of ourselves that are denied or have been banished to adapt to our early environments. In learning how to relate to and integrate more of our wholeness, we experience a greater capacity for and flexibility in relationships as well as a greater resiliency in their lives. I work with clients to increase awareness of themselves and their patterns, both healthy and unhealthy, to have greater choice and freedom in the way they live, and to discover lifepaths that authentically express who they are.

Relationships can be hard. Partners struggle with communication, conflicting parenting styles, and sexual expression. Life's challenges, hurtful fights, history of trauma or infidelity, make it difficult to sustain trust and closeness. How can you create desired connections, and not lose yourself in the process? How can you be true both to self and to your partnership? I invite you to answer these questions together in the safety of my office, with empathy and curiosity replacing habitual judgments, self-deprecation, and shame. Both traditional and alternative lifestyles are welcome, and no issue is a taboo.

In today's tech-driven environment, the pressure to succeed can be overwhelming. Striving to achieve measures of success that do not include what is personally meaningful may heighten stress and anxiety. Therapy is an opportunity to examine the relationship between external messages and one's inner truths. It also supports the process of creating a life that is in harmony with who one truly aspires to be.

Relationships can be difficult even in the best of times. Sometimes you are lying in bed next to your partner but feel world's apart. Or maybe you are lying in bed alone. You wish to connect with your true and authentic sexual and erotic self but something keeps getting in the way (e.g., sexual dysfunction, sex "addiction," sexual pain, sexual shame). You want to improve overall communication in your relationship but nothing seems to be working. I have extensive experience treating couples, anxiety, imposter syndrome, and life transitions.

I work with individuals from young adulthood through older age, and couples have been a specialty for more than 25 years. Life events and experiences can cause stress, confusion, grief, and myriad other feelings which, when internalized, result in anxiety and depression. Whether seeing couples or individuals, I have found that a combination of insight and understanding, attention to feelings, and cognitive and behavioral change is most effective in addressing both internal and interpersonal conflicts and concerns. I work with people to resolve, heal, accept, and cope with loss, trauma, illness, family, marital and work issues, and more.

My typical client is an adult of exceptional intelligence, creativity, achievement, and kindness, who needs to address problems in his or her life. These problems include depression, anxiety, the disease of addiction, childhood trauma,the addictions of others, and/or difficulties in forming or enjoying relationships. Too many people emerge from childhood with wounds from parental loss, abuse, or neglect. Some carry genetic loadings for addiction. The aftermath of these is devastating, despite success and "looking good." Revealing the pain to another person and revising basic assumptions about yourself and others in a safe relationship can help.

Most people benefit from having a trusted and trained professional to confide in and collaborate with - to make changes, deal with emotional pain, and search for understanding and meaning. Humans are complex beings and life is full of challenges. We all create "protective measures" to help us cope with difficulties we have encountered. Unconscious relational patterns, expectations, and beliefs about ourselves and others develop. Unfortunately, many of these ways of being interfere with creating satisfying lives and relationships. Our habituated patterns can be constricting, or lead to troubling behaviors or symptoms.

Are you feeling stuck in the same type of relationships, arguments, or habits? When you feel stuck, it can be helpful to talk with someone to consider a fresh perspective. Previous ways of facing obstacles in your life may not be working and you might want to learn new ways to cope, or you may need extra support while going through a challenging experience. Typically, I help clients with stress, depression, worries/anxiety, life transitions, professional/sport/academic performance, and substance abuse. I enjoy working with people who are interested in self-growth and are curious about themselves and others.

Depression, anxiety, stress or addictive behaviors are usually the first step in a journey to self-discovery. I create a nurturing, supportive and warm space for my clients to examine their relationships, the impacts of their family environments, thought patterns and dreams. I help my clients understand concessions they may have been made in their original family enabled adaptation, but may later interfere with their fulfillment. Together we create new stories with happier endings.

It's hard being a kid these days. Children and teens often act out because they are distressed. Alternatively, they may turn inwards, becoming withdrawn. As a parent, you may have a sense of what the problem is. It’s okay if you’re not quite sure, though. Through therapy, we can uncover the root cause of your child’s emotional and behavioral challenges. We can work through those issues to support your youngster in positive development. And don't worry - if play isn't for you, I also specialize in more traditional approaches to therapy.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in 94025, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 94025 are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in 94025. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 94025

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 94025 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 94025 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 94025 or family therapy in 94025.
