"There is a crisis of meaning and purpose in our society and a lack of communities of support to guide us through the difficulties of modern life. I work with individuals and couples using psychodynamic, interpersonal and mindfulness-based approaches to help people move from lives of loneliness and alienation to lives of connection and purpose. Creating a safe and nurturing relationship with my clients is of primary importance in my work."

"I believe most people seek therapy as a road to change: lessening sadness, loneliness, anxiety, guilt, shame; changing relationships; making life transitions. I have devoted many years of training and practice to better help my patients understand their unconscious obstacles to desired change. For some patients change means learning to confront pain from chronic conditions like anxiety, depression, bi-polar or attention deficit disorders, For others, change entails finding their authentic voice in relationships or facing difficult realities. I enjoy developing a close, working relationship with my patients to create new capacities within themselves, hopefully perceiving new choices in their lives."

"Sometimes amazing things can grow under pressure. Living with stigma - related to a mind that works differently, a body that's unruly or "too much," or a sexuality that doesn't fit behind a white picket fence - asks us to be creative and fierce. The wisdom that can grow here is astounding. But the burden of stigma is heavy, and sometimes it twists and catches us in painful positions. Whether you're feeling exhausted, sick of yourself, or just don't know quite how to relate to other people, therapy with me can help."

"Healing involves the whole person, not just the problems that person is struggling with. I believe that depression and anxiety are not random occurrences but have meaning. It is our task to discover the message contained within the pain. The sense of separateness that comes from this pain is often a separation from the self. As a trained homeopath, as well as a psychodynamic therapist, I have tools to treat both psychological and physical symptoms. I am faculty emeritus at the Women's Therapy Center and am a supervisor and instructor at The Psychotherapy Institute in Berkeley. I have also taught at Sonoma State University."

"The quality of our relationships determines the quality of our lives. Most of us didn't learn how to create fulfilling romantic relationships from our families, schools, or culture. Conflict, distance, not knowing the way forward, these are all very common struggles. Fortunately, in depth scientific research has revealed the key skills that lead to happy relationships. Ground breaking research into gender, sexuality, and eroticism has also revealed the key skills that lead to pleasure fulfillment. With these advanced skills in hand, you can learn how to bring out the best in you and your partner."

"Many of us enter adulthood with beliefs about love influenced by Hollywood depictions of romance. If we're fortunate, we've had more nuanced and realistic models, examples from adults who've shown us what it means to commit to another person and what love through a real lens looks like up close. The luckiest of us we saw the deepening and mellowing of love over time, love between people who have weathered conflicts, learned from the challenges they faced and and grown together. If so, we are likely to reach our adult years understanding what loves both asks of us and offers in reward. "

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Livermore, 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 Livermore are able to work with a wide range of issues.

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