My style is primarily psychodynamic, which explores feelings and experiences and examines conscious and unconscious defenses that can inhibit one's capacity to cope with stressors.
Finding your way through emotional challenges, such as depression, anxiety, and significant life changes, can be a very lonely experience on your own. Having a partner can make all the difference. Working with a knowledgable, insightful and compassionate psychotherapist can make the journey bearable, smoother and more successful. In my practice, you are not alone. I partner with clients and provide guidance and support in a safe, supportive and empathetic environment to explore challenges and promote overall wellness. I specialize in helping people with depressive disorders, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, difficult life transitions, interpersonal conflicts and low self-esteem.

My approach integrates Jungian, Cognitive, Psychodynamic, Buddhist and other theoretical perspectives.
I work with a wide range of clients. Those confronting transitions, relationships problems, career concerns, addictions, student concerns and other challenges. 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.

I typically integrate methods from a variety of research-supported therapies including cognitive behavior therapy, dialectical behavior therapy and psychodynamic psychotherapy.
Life's problems can feel much more difficult when faced alone. Perhaps you are struggling with a painful loss, are overwhelmed by fear, anger, loneliness or depression. You may be stuck in patterns of negative, self-critical thinking and inner pressure may cause you to feel tense and exhausted. You may feel shame and hopelessness and your means of coping such as avoidance, procrastination, withdrawal or overeating adds to your distress. I help people struggling with anxiety, panic, depression, phobias, eating issues, and relationship distress to understand these problems and develop skills to feel better and create happier lives.

I use a short-term psychodynamic method of treatment (ISTDP) that achieves a better self-understanding of one's mental life, and leads to psychological health.
My practice provides caring and sensitive treatment for mental, emotional and behavioral problems. My approach draws upon many years of extensive experience. It builds upon each patient's strengths, while improving interpersonal and emotional skills. My therapy is personalized, recognizing that each patient is a unique individual with his or her own very personal history and issues. My goal is to help my patients in achieving an awareness and understanding of the sources of their psychological problems, and then help them work through those problems so they can feel better about themselves and lead healthier and happier lives.

As an integrative therapist I combine tools from cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, interpersonal, and mood regulation therapies. I treat adults and older adolescents battling mood, anxiety, eating, interpersonal and life transition challenges. I consider treatment options as they relate to a patient's needs given the empirical support available. I find the psychotherapy process to be most effective when done collaboratively. For the past 22 years in addition to maintaining a private practice, I worked as a Clinical Associate Professor at Stanford's Department of Psychiatry until July 2015. I was trained at UCLA (Ph.D) and at Oregon Health Sciences University (post-doctoral fellowship).

I primarily practice from a relational psychodynamic orientation, while integrating aspects from other modalities such as DBT, CBT, and ACT based on each client's unique presenting problems.
I believe that some of the ways people developed to cope with difficult experiences in early life no longer adaptively serve them; therefore, I help clients gain insight into those patterns and develop new ways of being in order to make positive changes. I also deeply value the impact that family-of-origin and culture have on identity development, interpersonal relationships, and how one views the world. My dissertation focused on examining the relationship between academic stress and physical health symptoms. I have a specialty in working with adolescents, college-aged students, and young professionals.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Menlo Park, 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.
