I provide sex-positive therapy to individuals, relationships, and adult families. Most of my clients have non-mainstream sexual, gender, and/or relationship identities. Many identify as non-monogamous, are considering opening or creatively designing their relationship(s); I help them to create agreements, move through jealousy, heal from infidelities, build trust, and improve communication with partners and metamours. I work with queer, transgender, and nonbinary clients just beginning to question and explore their identities, and those who have been out for years and need therapy from a clinician familiar with queer issues.

With a kind heart and open mind, I strive to make therapy a comfortable place where you can explore the deepest insights about yourself with compassion and empathy. Therapy becomes an experience and journey about who YOU are and where YOU want to go. Is something standing in the way? Are you stuck in repetitive patterns or plagued by underlying issues? Whether you are suffering unbearable panic attacks, struggling with depression, or having difficulty with transitions, I'm here to help. Let's go beyond the surface and help YOU learn about YOU.

Our innate impulse is to heal, just as one can observe in nature. Sometimes though, our access to this resiliency is an ever winding path...with circumstances (events, relationships, socio-political climate) and behaviors impacting our ability to fulfill this impulse. In therapy with me, we will creatively collaborate to rediscover this path. We will hold your innate wisdom and resiliency alongside the parts that feel incongruent, sticky, stubborn and shameful--honoring that each part is communicating or responding to something, past and/or present. We will learn how to find balance in the fullness of you.

In addition to adult individuals and couples, I work quite well with difficult adolescents and pre-teens, and can tolerate a high degree of intensity in therapy sessions. I am uniquely capable of providing a containing and non-judgmental space, and am particularly interested in working with issues that arise as a result of counter-culture lifestyles. I bring a social justice perspective to my work, meaning that I take the entirety of my clients' environment as equally important and formative as their early childhood relationships and mental processes.

I work with people who want to reach their full potential at work, in relationships, and/or creative pursuits but find themselves instead drained by worry, paralyzed by fear or perfectionism, and often unable to even feel safe in their own bodies. Though we sometimes get overwhelmed by life's struggles, I deeply believe in each person’s innate wisdom and ability to heal and grow. During individual sessions I will help you access your inner healing capacities. And together we will work to identify and change the thought and behavior patterns, and false beliefs at the root of these, that are keeping you stuck and suffering.

My approach is collaborative and active. I balance making therapy challenging at times, yet playful enough so that you will want to come back. My clients say this therapy-on-the-move is easier than a traditional sit-on-a-couch scenario in which the confinement of the room can get in the way of the work. I think for some people — especially teens & young adults — the idea of sitting in a room with a therapist is antithetical to being in a space that is good for sharing tough stuff. All that said, the outdoor work is *part* of the practice, roughly 50% of our time together will likely be spent indoors.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Pill Hill, Oakland, 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.
