Feeling understood, feeling helped, and feeling supported are at the core of psychotherapy. This process also includes developing and enhancing self understanding. Many people contemplate calling a therapist for a long time, unsure of what to expect or how to proceed. Together, we can explore and understand difficult issues in your life and gain a deeper understanding of your situation. Through this process, we can begin to offer you new emotional experiences. In a safe setting with warmth and engagement, I provide an opportunity to gently move through what is bothering you most.

While you can't always avoid the challenges that arise in your life, you do have choices about how you address them. My approach draws from the idea that there is much to learn from these struggles, and that by decreasing the shame that makes it hard for you to face yourself, you create opportunities for making real and enduring changes in your life. But you don't have to do this alone.

Are you tired of feeling stuck? Sick of encountering the same problems/ issues/ struggles over and over again. You are not alone. Change is very hard; we naturally fear it. I can help. In my work, I am actively engaged, interested, curious, thoughtful and direct. I will work with you to get beneath the surface, sort through the layers and come to a place of deeper understanding and greater ability to make conscious choices. In both my professional and personal experience, I have come to believe in the transformative power of therapy.

I think of therapy as like sanctuary - a place where there aren't distractions, where there is an opportunity to pay attention to what is important, in a spirit of kindness. Because of this, many individuals and couples find it to be enjoyable, and very relieving. Of course, since people do therapy to work on painful things, therapy itself isn't always easy. But at least things can be approached thoughtfully and skillfully, in a safe context, and this itself brings great benefits.

For couples, I help you to slow down, to learn to listen to each other, to identify your own needs, and to communicate them to your partner.

If you've always been different or struggle to fit into the mainstream, you might feel very alone. Maybe you have trouble finding ways to fit into a world that isn't always aligned with your strengths, perceptions, and values. You might even feel like something's wrong with you. Being different can make it hard to find a sense of identity and community, so I view it as my job to help you connect with your own strengths and build feelings of community and security, so you can feel more in touch and okay with who you are. And if trauma in your past is a part of the difference, I've been trained to help you gently unpack that too.

Parenthood can be very demanding especially when you're trying to maintain a career and relationships with your partner, family and friends. I work with clients to give them communication tools and self-care strategies as well as increasing self-awareness and personal insight.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Noe Valley, 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.
