"Therapy can help you overcome difficulties, live creatively, and feel more alive. Many people become stuck in ways of thinking and living that no longer serve them. Through a caring therapeutic relationship, you can develop the courage to live in a meaningful and fulfilling way. Over the past 17 years, I have helped people with a wide variety of issues work through significant challenges, freeing them to make better choices. In addition to my clinical work, I teach and supervise at various training programs throughout the Bay Area, and am the Director of Counseling at California College of the Arts."

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW
"Did something unexpected or tragic happen that has impacted you or a loved one? My work is about meeting people where they are and working with constellations that best serve the concern at hand. Whether that is individually, dyadic (parent(s) and child, couples), or family. My clinical conceptualization is rooted in a deep understanding of trauma and attachment, knowing that early exposure to adverse experiences has short and long term impacts. My background has been working with children and parents who have experienced interpersonal (domestic violence, physical abuse, sexual abuse, neglect, etc) and community violence/ trauma."

Psychotherapy can offer a path to healing where you can get back in touch with your true nature and experience this as inherently healthy and whole, a source of compassion and intuitive wisdom."

Marriage & Family Therapist Intern, MA, MFTI
"I form an alliance with each individual client to help them with their obstacles and achieve their goals. We may use a variety of modalities, often transferring from one to another depending on the needs of the client in the moment, working with the client as a whole integrated person. These may include various therapies. We may use the arts*, including visual art, movement, sound, journaling, sand tray or drama expressively, in order to foster release, self-understanding and insight, and then discuss what has come up, it's meaning in your life, how to proceed. *No creative ability necessary."

"I enjoy being a psychotherapist because it provides me the opportunity to help people resolve the issues that are causing them distress. I work with adults, children, and families, and understand that each person is a unique individual with his or her unique life circumstances, history, and social and cultural context. A goal of our work together will be to help you identify and understand the conflicts that may be causing you difficulty, and to help you overcome them. Or perhaps negative thinking patterns cause you to experience sadness, loneliness, hopelessness, fear, or other unwanted emotions."

Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, MFT
"I have worked with adults and teens for over ten years and specialize in helping people live more conscious, meaningful and contented lives. Living in the bay area can be stressful and demanding. Gaining more insight about one's anxiety or dissatisfaction at work; sorting through relational issues such as doubts about the marriage or challenges with a teenager; bringing awareness to coping mechanisms that aren't working anymore (alcohol, eating patterns, internet or shopping compulsion) - these are a few of the ways therapy can help you gain more balance and well-being in your life."

Marriage & Family Therapist, RN, MFT
"Looking for more peace of mind? More joy in your life? I can help. Our culture promotes achievement at 110%. But what price do we pay for all of our accomplishments? Emotional distress is a signal that we need to slow down. And when you slow down, you see what you've missed; and are ready to explore what you want: in relationships, at work, and for the one life you get. Let's work together mindfully, so you can refocus on your true values and take the steps you need to live by them."
