"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."

"Straight-forward honest therapy. No therapy gameplaying. Therapy starts with a mutual commitment to work together with honesty and trust. I work with you as a real person, who has a positive sensitivity, intelligence, insight, skill, and caring that can help you do the work you need do. I will not try to fit you and your life and experiences into particular theories about who you should be. Making it work for you is my goal in therapy. We won't try to fit you and your experiences into some neat theory, but will seek to find the logic of your life and how you came to be the person you are- and be in the relationships you are in."

"Have you tried to quit watching porn, but can't? Have secrets sapped the trust and respect from your relationship? Do memories of past hurts intrude into the present? Infidelity, porn, or sex addiction -- and the related trauma -- can drive us into shame and take away our voice. Let's talk and make sure you're heard. I have helped many individuals and couples develop healthy sexuality and rebuild trust. It would be my honor to walk alongside you."

"Live your truth. Follow your bliss. Do you. Sounds simple, right? Except that, all too often, we convince ourselves that who we are is not enough, that what we want is undeserved. So we stifle our talents, ignore our truth and deny our deepest desires. Before we know it, we’re living someone else’s life, satisfying everyone’s expectations but our own. All to earn the love and acceptance we don’t feel worthy of otherwise. But it doesn’t have to be this way."

"Have you experienced events in your life that left you feeling scared, worried, and fearful about your safety and the future? If so, you may be suffering from trauma. As a trauma-focused practitioner, I have assisted children, teens, and adults in building resilience, finding hope, and improving their relationships with others. Many of my clients are victims and survivors of childhood trauma which can leave a person feeling detached and without the ability to set limits and boundaries in relationships. It is difficult for some to believe that the symptoms of today can be the result of a residual traumatic experience. However, it is my experience, that the implicit and explicit messages of our past have had a profound effect on our current thought processes and only until that is realized, can we evoke change. "

"All emotional wounding happens in a larger context. We are all embedded in relationships, families, cultural identities community and institutional values. Therefore our pain, trauma and grief are all firmly connected in a matrix. I mainly work with those of us who are outside the margins of dominant culture and are especially vulnerable. I work from a non pathologizing stance. I believe healing occurs on many levels, in many ways. Psychotherapy is one path to emotional wellness. Do you desire a deeper relationship with yourself and others, and are willing to engage in personal inquiry in an environment of connection? "

"We all have our own unique truths. As we live as human beings, however, we tend to be disconnected from our truths in order to physically and emotionally survive in the world. Ironically, the more we push our truths away in order to be "alive" in the world, the more "dead" we feel in our bodies. When we have the courage to pause and deeply feel ourselves, we begin to notice that something most important has been missing from our lives. If you have ever experienced this sense of something missing, you may have arrived on the right page. "

"While I do offer talk therapy, I also blend psychotherapy, expressive arts therapy and somatic therapy. Expressive arts therapy can look like anything from me having you choose images (rather than using words) to describe your experience, to drama therapy techniques by which I facilitate you having a conversation with a "part" of yourself that continues a frustrating habit. Somatic work means your body is an integral part of our process. This can mean tracking bodily shifts and sensations together. It can also involve standing practices that reflect back what your body (you) are doing, as opposed to what you think you are doing. "
