Are you a woman that longs for intimacy and closeness, but don't want to repeat a painful past? Perhaps you have been cheated on, treated like your feelings are unimportant, or have been hurt in an emotional or physical way. You long for touch and connection, but want to feel cared for and safe. Part of you may be rushing towards finding a new love interest, and part of you may be backing away. Through relationship counseling and EMDR, I help women to heal from painful intimacy experiences and teach them how to develop loving and satisfying relationships.

Finding the right therapist can be a daunting process. I believe in trusting intuition when it comes to evaluating a match with a potential therapist. In my experience, a positive and trusting connection is the basis for creating growth and change. I work with adults and adolescents over 14 on a variety of issues, including achieving greater mood stability, identity issues, improved relationships and sexuality and recovery from trauma. I have experience working effectively with people who identify as trans or genderqueer, and those with diverse lifestyles.

Thank you for taking the time to review my profile. Finding a therapist is easy, but finding the "right" therapist during a difficult time in your life is not at all easy. I've been in private practice for over 35 years and have seen individuals, couples and families dealing with a wide spectrum of issues. Over and over again, I've been pleased to hear how quickly my clients felt a sense of "connection" with me in working on their problems. This connection is an essential element of a successful outcome.

Having witnessed many courageous changes made by individual facing personal challenges, I am convinced therapy is most effective when it is grounded in respectful, collaborative, non-pathologizing practices. Talking together in ways which nurture curiosity and compassion, we will look at what troubles you, what brings you hope. I believe remembering the past is helpful to the extent it helps heal, and so while we’ll be attentive to the past, our focus will be on how its legacy is impacting your life now. Our work will be relieving of past pains and also bring more calm and joy, a greater sense of connectedness, in present time.

Many of the clients I work with have either lost or struggled to develop a sense of control in their lives and relationships– having fallen into destructive patterns of substance abuse/addiction and impulsive and/or self-harming behaviors. Others may be struggling with an excess of self-imposed control– leading to a sense of isolation and fear of taking healthy risks. Some are confronting a major life-transition, loss of identity, divorce, death of a loved one or faced with a pervading sense of meaninglessness. All are, in one way or another, seeking to increase their sense of personal agency and effectiveness in daily life.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in 94710, 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 94710 are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 94710
