"As a person originally trained in psychodynamics, I care greatly about the experiences and relationships that have shaped you. I am currently perusing more training in Jungian/depth psychology, which means I am greatly interested in the unconscious and how it reveals itself through dreams, spontaneous visions and creative endeavors. Of primary focus, in my work with clients, is the therapeutic relationship. It is here that our patterns of relating often reveal themselves. Through the safe container of therapy, I invite my clients into new ways of being that invite more creativity, flexibility and deeper relationships."

"Our innate impulse is to heal, just as one can observe in nature. Sometimes though, our access to this resiliency is an ever winding path...with circumstances (events, relationships, socio-political climate) and behaviors impacting our ability to fulfill this impulse. In therapy with me, we will creatively collaborate to rediscover this path. We will hold your innate wisdom and resiliency alongside the parts that feel incongruent, sticky, stubborn and shameful--honoring that each part is communicating or responding to something, past and/or present. We will learn how to find balance in the fulness of you. "

"My priority as a therapist is to create a safe space for you. When any of us seeks out therapy, we are likely suffering. To suffer is to be in a very tender place, and I want to honor that. Whether your suffering comes from early childhood trauma, more recent losses, relationship problems, social injustice, adjustment to big changes in your life...I want you to feel safe and companioned as you move toward tending those places of wounding and toward healing."

Or we may notice chronic struggles with trusting others and ourselves, and feeling stressed and unsatisfied in our relationships. The experience of trauma can significantly impact how we change or grow in each present moment, how we connect and separate from others, and how we experiment, take risks, and resource our creativity.

Self Esteem Therapists
Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum. Equally, to lack confidence or lacking confidence is common amongst teens: child self esteem issues can be helped with self esteem support groups in Oakland and therapists' support dealing with self esteem.
