When it's an uphill battle to manage anxiety, low self-worth or impulsive self-sabotaging habits, it’s probably time to get some help. Life doesn't need to feel so hard. I facilitate the wisdom and drive to heal already inside you. It's normal to feel transformation may be out of reach. But I have helped many people thrive. Impulses, emotional overwhelm and habits often get "updated." It's common to feel more ease, self-accepting and empowered to make key changes. I excel at supporting and guiding my clients along their path. Many indicate they feel refreshed, transformed and nourished. Feel free to call. I'd love to tell you more.

Do you have feelings that your life isn’t quite what you want it to be? Maybe you find yourself stuck in similar patterns in your relationships or feel dissatisfied at work. You might worry, feel irritable or anxious. Or unable to make decisions or concentrate, or make meaningful connections. You might even have physical pain or symptoms as a result of these challenges. Maybe you cope with unhealthy behaviors that you are not proud of. Therapy can have a significant impact in the positive change you are looking for, once you make the powerful and sometimes difficult decision to seek treatment. We will begin where you are.

We are all worried about what will happen and when will this be over. No one knows, there are no absolute answers. For some people the situation we find ourselves in is overwhelming. Some of what is going on can trigger memories bringing on depression, anxiety, panic attacks, intense fear, and negative memories from your past. I am accepting new clients that I will meet and treat via the internet during this time. I have over 28 years experience as a Trauma Therapist and work with mood disorders which are often the result of traumatic events. Sometimes the weight of trauma can feel like too much. I encourage you to reach out.

Your potential is much greater than you even think. But psychological burdens -- such as depression, loneliness, guilt, and anxiety -- rob you of the freedom to feel, act, and choose. Self-protective strategies left over from childhood, ingrained but faulty ideas, and an absence of self-acceptance make life very, very difficult. How we work together will depend on what you want and what you need. Cognitive-behavioral techniques can be very valuable. But for many people, the path includes uncovering buried emotions, giving the "true self" a chance to emerge. Our closeness gives you courage.

If you find yourself here, perhaps you or your child has been struggling to enjoy things that he or she usually enjoys (having friends over, heading outdoors, reading/watching tv). Their mind might be filled with worries of what others think and they did something wrong and are having difficulties shaking off an interaction. You or your child are wanting to feel more at ease in your relationships while finding yourself in familiar unhelpful patterns.

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.

Anxiety can be so overwhelming and persistent that it feels like it's taking over. Sadness, grief, and depression may feel so heavy and unmanageable that the simple but vital parts of life such as sleeping, eating, and work are difficult or complicated. Your pain might be related to a recent stressful event like heartbreak or the death of someone close to you, or maybe it is less acute but feels endless. Perhaps there is an atmosphere of dread, loneliness, fear, and frustration. Relationships become conflict- ridden or devoid of real feeling. There is a sense that you're doing it wrong or always making the same mistakes.

Have you been feeling overwhelmed, anxious or fearful lately? Are you feeling isolated, disconnected or burnt out? These can feel like chaotic times and many people are needing increased emotional support. If you or your partner are expecting a baby or are a new parent, life can feel especially unmanageable. You may be worried about staying safe and healthy, attending doctor appointments alone or not receiving as much social support after baby has arrived. Therapy can be a safe, non-judgemental space to reflect and process these complex emotions.

What is a Sleep Disorder or Insomnia?

Almost everyone goes through bouts of sleeplessness in San Francisco from time to time. Chronic insomnia, however, is marked by difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, or waking up too early. If it takes you thirty minutes or more to fall asleep, or you're awake for thirty minutes or more during the night at least three times a week-for a month or more-you're likely suffering from insomnia.

Insomnia has major effects on mood as well as alertness. It is also a classic symptom of depression.

The most effective treatments for chronic insomnia are behavioral techniques that eliminate sleep anxiety and allow the body's own sleep cycle to kick in. It may require as little as doing nothing. But Sleep specialists in San Francisco or therapists who specialize in sleep in San Francisco, or simply a San Francisco sleep therapist, can help. Likewise, insomnia specialists in San Francisco or therapists who specialize in insomnia in San Francisco, or simply a San Francisco insomnia therapist, can help.

Sleep disorders may include sleep apnea, narcolepsy or simply chronic snoring.

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
