Announcement icon During Covid, I provide safe and secure Telehealth services via video/ phone as well as office visits for vaccinated clients.
Counseling can help you through challenging times and be life changing. I have dedicated myself to helping adults with serious life challenges by providing therapy and education to empower my clients to: make sense of their feelings, not feel alone, hurt less, re-frame their life narratives, develop healthy coping skills, and feel more confident. I specialize in life transitions, grief, loss, health issues, depression, anxiety, family conflicts, immigration issues, domestic violence/abuse, and death & dying. Typically, my clients decide to work with me because they trust me to guide them toward a place of peace and hope.
I am a licensed clinical social worker. My therapeutic approach is eclectic and informed by my experience. I use a strengths-based approach with a range of brief solutions-focused to long-term psycho-dynamic interventions. My clients appreciate my transparent and interactive style, my warmth and compassion. I provide therapy in English and German.
Pain and suffering are part of life and if we can make sense of those challenging times, we can heal and grow. I promise to be there for you and guide you along your journey. I work in Lamorinda and also offer in-home visits for clients that are house-bound or too weak to come to my office. I work with clients of all backgrounds/spiritual beliefs.
