"I enjoy helping bright, creative people who feel passionate about life, yet feel stuck or dissatisfied with some aspect of their life. Intelligence, ambition and success are often accompanied by unexpected challenges and difficulties. Fulfillment in one area of one's life doesn't guarantee satisfaction in other areas. I've had excellent academic training (Yale, UC Berkeley), and extensive clinical training. The breadth and depth of my training allows me to tailor a treatment plan to the specific needs of each client or couple. My orientation is relational and psychodynamic, informed by research on human development and psychotherapy. Visit my website for more information."

"I have worked for the past thirty-five years to help people change the self-defeating habits that interfere with good relationships, health, success and happiness. Since so many of these problems stem from early traumas and neglect in childhood, I help an individual to identify these psychological traps and change them. By learning to speak to yourself in a positive manner and by eliminating old reactions of fear and shame, I help you to live a more creative life. I like a client to form a partnership with me to eliminate negative behaviors and build new ways of being."
