"Psychotherapy is one instrument of change for feeling better. For example, earlier psychic injuries may alert us when faced with challenges making us anxious, depressed, endure sleep problems or feel out of balance some way. Long term recovery from addiction, grieving and loss, chronic illness or pain may call for deeper work. Many stress points show up in relationships, at work or in how we feel. Life transitions (starting or ending a career, big changes in relationships/family, starting a young family or retirement ) are important passages in our lives and therapy can be a great guide."

"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’re overthinking things, second-guessing yourself all the time, worried you’re not keeping up with your friends/peers. You want to be your best self, but not sure exactly what that is or how to get there. You’re afraid to do the wrong things at times and do nothing as a result. When you and your partner talk about your relationship you mean well, but say the wrong things or it comes out the wrong way. Falling short on friendships, dating and your career and you’re not sure why. You need clarity and a way to move forward, but turning to friends or family doesn’t feel like the way to go."

My approach is collaborative, warm, and challenging. I work psychodynamically, and also focus on the integration of the mind and body.

"Many of us enter adulthood with beliefs about love influenced by Hollywood depictions of romance. If we're fortunate, we've had more nuanced and realistic models, examples from adults who've shown us what it means to commit to another person and what love through a real lens looks like up close. The luckiest of us we saw the deepening and mellowing of love over time, love between people who have weathered conflicts, learned from the challenges they faced and and grown together. If so, we are likely to reach our adult years understanding what loves both asks of us and offers in reward. "

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.
