So often self-work involves degrees of correction and vigilance that can actually make you feel less connected to yourself. You want to better understand yourself and your relationships so that you can feel more whole and authentic. You are curious how your past connects to your present problems, and why certain narratives repeat themselves. You want interpersonal interactions to feel less complicated at work, at home, and with friends. You are tired of trying so hard to analyze and figure out your part in these relationships to no avail. You want to find the right solution, but in doing so end up feeling isolated.

I help individuals and couples achieve a greater sense of aliveness and authenticity through a process that promotes insight and self-expression. This allows them to recognize and detach from emotional experiences that have tended to inhibit, enrage, discourage and, ultimately, thwart them in their life pursuits.

I work with adults in their 20s, 30s, and early 40s who are feeling stuck or unfulfilled and can’t pinpoint why. Often my clients are dealing with big life transitions, such as a career change, relationship beginnings or dissolutions, or new parenthood. The first few decades of adulthood are an exciting time of self-discovery and building the life you want to live. But they can also be stressful and overwhelming. I’m here to help people have confidence in themselves and their decisions.

As a creative professional in the flow, it’s easy to take creativity, passion, and aliveness for granted. But what happens when anxiety, perfectionism, and self-doubt stop you in your tracks? Suddenly it’s hard to find your flow, you lose confidence, and the mounting pressure to get back on your feet only makes it worse. Whether your goal is to overcome creative blocks and burnout, sustain your energy while "in the spotlight", or strengthen your personal and professional boundaries, together we can develop the inner resources you need to lead a more embodied life.

Are you struggling with anxiety and trauma and turning towards unhealthy coping mechanisms in an attempt to manage your emotions? Now is a trying time for almost everyone, and if you have a trauma background what's coming up in the current environment may be reminiscent of the stress, isolation, and fear induced by early childhood experiences. You don't have to handle this alone, and with clinically tested techniques to regulate the mind and body, it's possible to shift from a place of disempowerment to strength.

**Now accepting new clients VIRTUALLY throughout CA** Many of my clients struggle with feelings of shame, insecurity and anxiety. They often have difficulties setting boundaries and fear “not being good enough”. Sometimes this shows up as dissatisfaction with their bodies; some are chronic dieters that struggle with the tension and anxiety of restriction or the shame and “out of control” feeling of bingeing. Other times, clients struggle with trying to be perfect and have harsh inner critics, no matter their amount of external successes. There can be a strong desire to “fix” themselves while also longing to feel more free.

What is therapy and how can it help? For me, it is largely a process of asking good questions and collaboratively feeling into the answers that lead toward growth and healing. The questions we can bring to therapy are boundless and there may be some big ones. Who are you? How did you get there? Who do you want to be? And, how do you become that which dwells inside you? Luckily, it is never too early or too late to explore these questions. It is never too late to reach inside and drink from that source. However, we need not search for that source alone.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in 94704, 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 94704 are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in 94704. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 94704

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 94704 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 94704 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 94704 or family therapy in 94704.
