"The most significant predictor of a successful therapy experience is the quality of the relationship between therapist and client. Building a safe, nurturing relationship is where I excel. My style is warm and highly interactive, best suited for clients who prefer a therapist who feels very human, less like the old "medical model." I assist clients to explore their thought patterns and corresponding emotional reactions, and to identify unconscious assumptions they hold about themselves, which inform their behavioral patterns. I also provide practical tools for regulating anxiety, managing depression, and processing grief & loss."

"You feel like you’re walking through life in a fog. You’ve gone through all the motions, and done all the “right things,” to get to this point in life, and yet it still isn't enough. There’s so much that you’re hiding on the inside, so much that you want to get out, but it’s scary to do that. The thoughts and inner critic are so loud, that it’s hard to imagine them not being there. We’ve learned so many survival skills to get us to this point in life, and they’ve worked. They’ve gotten you here and that’s amazing! But are they still serving you? What place do they have in your life now? "

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Mission, 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?
