It is during challenging times such as these when one is often afforded the greatest opportunity for growth, transformation, and healing. If you’re feeling lost, broken, or like you've exhausted your resources to cope with life, it may be a good time to start therapy. Whether you’re depressed, overwhelmed, or struggling in relationship, my goal is to use my seventeen plus years of experience as a psychotherapist to help you relieve suffering and arrive at a deeper understanding and appreciation for yourself. Pain is sometimes inevitable in life, but suffering need not be.

Seeking professional help for yourself, your child or your family takes courage. Not only are we taught that we shouldn't need help or tell strangers our business, but it’s hard to imagine what we’ll be like if we change our old habits. Many of the adults who have made progress working with me have experienced trauma, the impacts of oppressive social biases, or both. They have adapted and survived, but they are not thriving. They may feel stuck, or they feel the need to hide or silence parts of themselves to succeed in relationships. Younger clients may have similar issues along with defiance, withdrawal or other troubling behavior.

Successful psychotherapy is a partnership based on trust. People do change, becoming more truly themselves when they find the right, trained therapist and are able to talk freely. I listen to you with respect and you develop greater self awareness. This enables you to communicate more clearly, to reflect on difficult issues, and to let go of outmoded behaviors that do not further your deeper needs.

Many are calling this an unprecedented time -- quarantined in our homes, fearful of the well-being of our families and loved ones and facing changes and circumstances we may have never imagined possible. If you are feeling disoriented, unsteady and in shock, you are not alone. As we grapple with the spread of illness in our communities, it is a time of both personal and collective upheaval, a time that may "shake us at our roots" and pierce our hearts, but also deepen our humanity and resilience. As your therapist, I will be a compassionate, respectful and trust-worthy guide, to help you navigate and bridge the months ahead.

Just listening and asking you "How does that make you feel" is not my approach. We will get work done and you'll get tools to use in your day-to-day life. I'm authentic in sessions, which helps clients relax and creates a collaborative partnership rather than a hierarchy. Working with people from different backgrounds, cultures, gender identities, and sexualities, I acknowledge the need for different approaches and work with you to find the most engaging methods. I am very active in sessions and keep a relaxed atmosphere as we collaborate.

I believe that mental health issues arise when we are faced with overwhelming emotions in isolation. Without the necessary support, emotions get so big and daunting that we defend ourselves against them, leading to numbness, anxiety, and depression. My goal is to invite intense emotions into the room so that we can learn to regulate them together and they can be reincorporated into the psyche, leading to a fuller and healthier life.

Dating isn't easy. Understatement of the year, right? Loneliness is awful, and unfortunately dating is sometimes worse. Online dating can easily turn into a full-time job with few benefits, and many find meeting people in person painfully awkward if not downright impossible. The good news -- you're not alone. At Bay Area Dating Coach, we believe that dating is a learnable skill. And we've helped hundreds of singles find love. Heart-thumping, stomach-butterflying, whole-body-warming Love.

Do you feel stuck no matter how hard you try to move ahead? You're certainly not alone. It can be tough making change, especially while sheltering-in-place. Over the past decade, I've come to learn again and again that there's a legitimate reason why we don't move forward to fulfillment. Instead we cycle in discomfort, anxiety, sadness, fear, mistrust, etc. Once you really understand what is causing the discomfort (or that feeling of being stuck), lasting change can occur. This process is unique for each person. I'd love to help you.

There's in fact a tried and true way of finally coming to fully trust in yourself, which heals the self-doubt that can otherwise complicate life so unhappily. Whether your self-doubt involves anxiety, depression, relationship troubles, trauma or shame, there sleeps within you the instinctual self-certainty which silences the "critical voices" from your past.To revive an abiding faith in your core self with a reliable confidence in your instincts and innate abilities, you recover the inspired initiative to actualize your life's goals and dreams, while engendering harmonious and mutually respectful relationships with others.

Along with what's going on now, we talk about past events and relationships that are part of your story and may be making themselves felt in the present.

Sometimes life presents challenges that are too difficult to manage on one's own and therapy can be an excellent choice to address those obstacles. Therapy provides a conversation that is not available in any other relationship. I invite people to explore and clarify what they want and together we identify the barriers and create attainable goals. We will work together to understand what really matters to you. My treatment style is warm, direct, humorous and deeply respectful While each individual client requires something unique to them, in general, I offer practical solutions while also using an insight-orientated approach.

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

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.
