I'm a passionate, experienced therapist and psychologist educated at Harvard University and UCSF. I invite you view my website video introduction and email me about your current situation with any questions. I can help you get back on track. I often work with clients struggling with relationships, professional frustration, depression and anxiety. If you are feeling disconnected from yourself or from life, let's look closely at your experience, put thoughtful attention into clarifying what you want from the next phase of your life, and use proven strategies to begin feeling better by being who you want to be.

Our approach will be tailored to your current situation, and needs. If you find yourself at a personal crossroads and you decide that you are interested in meeting, I encourage you to contact my practice.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Joy and distress and your range of other emotions are aspects of your life that are deeply influenced by the unseen relationship you maintain with yourself. Your relationship with yourself is so fundamental that it influences your decisions, your capacity for and interest in relationships with others, and even the vitality of your moment-to-moment experience. Meanwhile, the relationship we each develop with our self is so deeply ingrained in the way we experience our life that it can be difficult to observe how it influences our emotional experience. For most of us, this difficulty increases when stress or emotional turmoil increase in our life, making it all the more challenging to work through loss, sadness, anxiety, lack of meaning and other normal life phases on our own. Psychotherapy helps you become aware of and personally develop the relationship you maintain with yourself in a way that you choose so that you can develop your life, including your relationships with others, as you want it to be.
