About

"We are now able to see the essential ingredient that makes psychotherapy effective and successful. Is is not "unconditional positive regard," nor is it magical words, techniques, or postures; it is human involvement and struggle. It is the willingness of the therapist to extend himself or herself for the purpose of nurturing the patient's growth - willingness to go out on a limb, to truly involve oneself at an emotional level in the relationship." M.Scott Peck, MD
Welcome! I am a psychologist in the Oakland area where I have been working with adults for 15 years. While I am a "generalist," my training has largely focused on anxiety. I find it rewarding helping my clients to feel safe, to process feelings of loss associated with trauma, and to rebuild their lives.
I've always been a curious person, which leaves no room for being judgmental. I work to help clients see that they are not somehow strange or "damaged;" and, instead focus on emotional growth. I am EMDR-certified and trained in DBT, which improves mindfulness, managing difficult emotions and stress.
