"Sometimes life brings many unexpected challenges and finding the right person to help you is key. As your therapist, I will help you find your way through your immediate problems, in a way that promotes progress toward your long-term goals. For many people this includes overcoming fears or insecurities, get 'unstuck' from negative patterns and getting more in touch with who you really are and caring for yourself. This starts with building a trusting relationship that is respectful, open minded, and culturally sensitive where you feel empowered to achieve your life goals."

"I work with adults, teens, and couples struggling with depression, anxiety, and the inability to effectively communicate. With individuals, I help reframe challenges and liberate talents, especially in men alienated from the economy and meaningful purpose. I taught for years in a high school, and thus am comfortable working with adolescents. My orientation is eclectic, however I draw mostly from psychodynamic and relational theory, as well as CBT techniques. I find these approaches complementary, even necessary to establish a holistic treatment plan."

"A clinical and developmental psychologist with over 30 years experience, I work with adults, parents and children from birth through adolescence. Development is a continual balance of equilibrium and disequilibrium; a lifelong process as bodies, brains, relationships and expectations change. Vulnerabilities, discomfort and negative emotions also create unseen opportunity for growth and change. From infancy on, we all have an inner vitality into which therapy can allow us to tap. Therapy provides a safe protected space that nurtures exploration, reflection, growth and change."

"To paraphrase Alice Miller: the opposite of depression isn't happiness; it's vitality. My clients are people who want to feel more in control, more at peace, more effective, more connected, more present, more focused, more decisive, more flexible… more alive. They seek relief from patterns -- sometimes chronic and severe, sometimes only subtly nagging -- of painful feelings, negative thoughts and self-sabotaging behaviors that stem from their experience of growing up in particular worlds and particular histories that were traumatic or difficult or confusing."

Science tells us that our brains at rest are actually programmed to be happy. But it sure doesn't always feel that way. CBLC equips you with the cognitive and mindfulness tools to counter the self-critic and manage difficult times.

"My approach as a psychotherapist is to meet my clients where they are, honoring their unique life experience, offering strategies and responses that address their specific needs. Effective therapy works on the impacts of trauma, privilege, and oppression, addressing suffering at the psycho-emotional as well as socio-political-ecological levels. Together we explore your individual mind-heart-body experience in the context of our collective interdependent cultural situation. I understand psychotherapy as a collaborative endeavor. I practice listening deeply, with curiosity and respect, to support my clients’ innate capacity for self-awareness, growth, and well-being. Effective therapy requires authentic contact between therapist and client.  As the therapeutic relationship unfolds it can become a catalyst for healing and transformation. I am a fellow traveler, working on my own growth and transformation, while in service to my clients. "

"Over 40 years of diverse practice has taught me that when people are in psychotherapy they create ingenious ways to grow, to resolve internal/social conflict and to improve their sense of personal fulfillment. They are innovative and sincere. Therapy is more than a serious, shared introspection. It is also a playful interaction. It usually involves a full range of emotions that includes a sharing of ideas and a mutual exchange, which almost always involves a lively conversation. There seems to be one common theme, namely that each person is seeking to find a sense of truth and well-being."
