""Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, the world offers itself to your imagination...." In Wild Geese, Mary Oliver does not promise salvation, but points to the okay-ness of your being, to the importance of your inner world. How do you, in your imagination, relate to the world? You can find peace inside yourself. I believe therapy is about wholeness-it's not about rejecting who you already are, but about including all aspects of yourself. With compassion and honesty, let's explore the full you so that you may find your inner peace."

"I have been helping my clients find solutions to problems of addiction, depression and difficult relationships for more than twenty-five years. I can help you feel better and make the changes you want to make. I recognize and respect what is unique about you and I don't practice "one size fits all" psychotherapy. I understand emotional pain and how a good therapeutic relationship can heal the hurt. Having better relationships, overcoming depression, or getting off the merry-go-round of addiction is possible with help, commitment and hard work."

"I specialize in working with you or you and your significant other in times of change: wanted or unwanted; stuck or struck; milestones or the weight of the world; career shifts or dead-end jobs; becoming parents or finding out you're a parent; un-coupling or committing; wits-end or letting go or starting again... By looking at your relationship to yourself and others through your habits, patterns, survival skills, and super powers, we find their purpose. Next we acknowledge and honor them, add compassion and respect which builds your self esteem. Then we invite unhelpful habits to leave, and stay with whatever happens."

I am not a psychologist who specializes in everything, but do have extensive experience working in some areas. These include adult ADHD, trauma (PTSD), transitional aged youth (18-24), bipolar spectrum disorders, marital/relational therapy and the more common disorders (major depression, anxiety). My approach aims to provide at least some immediate symptom relief and is practical. However, many situations cannot be so quickly resolved, therefore I am also attentive to unconscious processes, relational patterns and family-of-origin issues."

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

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