About

The Chinese character for crisis consists of the words 'emergency' and 'opportunity.' Difficulties in life end up being the greatest gift, if you grow from them. Therapy is helpful in resolving general concerns and specific challenges. I work with clients who are sick of being stuck, and feel ready to move beyond painful patterns. I help people experiencing depression, anxiety/panic attacks, anger/emotional instability, and issues in intimate relationships. With couples, I am based in attachment theory and specialize in building trust and communication. I am trained extensively to work with trauma, which underlies most conditions. My approach is warm, direct, collaborative, and interactive.
I focus on building safety with you, as a trusting relationship is foundational to the success of your therapy. I am empathic, but I will also challenge you when necessary.
For clients who are interested, I encourage you to bring your dreams as another facet of our work. I offer consultations at no charge, and can be reached at 415.890.3034. If we are not a fit, I will provide referrals. I also run a process group; more info on the 'Groups' link above.
