"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 hold that you may have many feelings about beginning therapy and what has led you here. In my view, an effective therapy is one where honesty and candor about such experiences, may be received with support and understanding. This generates change. My approach is thoughtful, kind and curious. I work relationally and psychodynamically, meaning collaboration, dialogue and careful consideration of how past informs present-day obstacles is taken-up and explored. Through this process, connections are made that facilitate a deeper understanding of you, your relationships, and importantly, offer some relief from punishing patterns."

"Many individuals and couples approach me for therapy feeling they've hit a road block in their lives and are confused and frustrated in their attempts to grow beyond it. They are often uncertain - both about their capacity to change and about whether therapy can help. Couples may be hopeful or discouraged about transforming their repeated patterns of conflict or distance, but know that significant changes are needed if their relationship is to regain a sense of joy and strength. The art of therapy involves reaching beyond solving a particular problem and exploring the opportunites for growth embedded within it."

"Most people looking for a relationship therapist wish they could make changes, but don't know how. What they have tried has not worked. Everyone has irresolvable issues. Never do we have the exact same desire for money in the bank, sexual frequency, social activities, neatness, or parenting ideas (etc.) This is built-in conflict. This built-in conflict carries with it the seeds for growth and connection that would not happen in any other way. Living in distress is so awful and so curable. What I do is start with creating safety, so it is safe for you to talk to your partner and be heard, from there needed conversations can occur."

"It's frustrating to feel stuck in the same patterns. You want to change, but don’t quite know what’s holding you back or how to do it. It may be a feeling in the pit of your stomach when you wake up, or getting worn down by the relentless self-criticism. I understand how hard and impossible it can seem, but it’s not too late. For couples, the cycles of fights, the distrust pain and frustration are tough to take. Underlying communication issues, deep hurt, and feeling unfulfilled often go unaddressed. What would it feel like to be understood by your partner again? What would it be like to feel like you are in this together?"
