Therapy can lead to better relationships and more ease in our lives. I work with individuals and couples to find more clarity and balance in their lives. Sometimes we avoid parts of our life or ourselves that are painful. Together we will get to know these hurt parts and how they show up, whether it is through fears and worries, the critical voice you hear inside, or a feeling of being stuck, lost, alone or helpless.

We often come to therapy in crisis. Something has gone wrong in a relationship. Major, disorienting life transitions are underway. Emotional experiences are becoming increasingly overwhelming. Life seems stuck, static, depressing. Anxiety is on the rise. A series of events have altered our course. We are feeling lost. Therapy can offer a soothing lifeboat for these rough seas. Often crisis is a wake up call, a time for necessary change, new growth, a reconnoitering of the landscape, a vivid reorientation. My practice is designed to move you from crisis to care, from care to confidence, confidence to creative, enlivening capacity.

Crises and painful emotions can be the beginning of a journey toward transformation and wisdom. If you are looking for a deeper and more connected sense of yourself, and fulfillment in life, then you may be ready for a commitment to the therapeutic process. I believe my empathic presence - the capacity to hear, see and feel a situation from the other person's vantage point- is central to the healing process. Within such a safe relationship the patient can develop an open attitude toward the unconscious; exploration of the meaning and purpose of one's life can unfold.

Psychotherapy provides a unique space for you to explore your experience in life in a profoundly important way. In a culture that does not make space for "negative emotions", and idealizes independence, there is little room to get to know the parts of ourselves that we imagine others will not approve of. When we aren't in touch with all aspects of our humanity, effectively shutting out parts of our experience, we can find ourselves feeling confused, depressed and/or anxious, having trouble in relationships with others, not enjoying our work, having difficulty processing grief and loss, or struggling with issues related to our identity.

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. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in San Francisco
