Are you caught in an unpleasant loop with an important relationship? Do buttons get pushed whenever the Big Topic comes up? And when the emotions flare up, is your connection lost? Ever wonder what it would be like to sit with a third party who helps the two of you really hear what you are trying to say to one another?
You are not alone. I have worked with many couples dealing with these patterns. I also help individuals find the best way to be, or, in some cases, to no longer be in an important relationship. Marital unions, domestic partners, new lovers, friends, grown family members have all come to me for counseling support. With over 20 years of experience I am able to draw from a wide range of approaches to ensure that the help I provide is tailored to each case. We are all different. I celebrate our diversity.

More Info About My Practice
Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, Gottman Method, and Process-Oriented Psychology provide the theoretical core of my practice. A mindfulness meditation practice of forty-five years informs my presence in every session.
Each case is different, though. My clients' stated needs and their individual processes guide us more than theory ever can.
I try to meet the needs of my busy clients. To better serve them, I offer hours at three locations: Downtown Berkeley and, in San Francisco, in the Financial District and the Laurel Heights neighborhood.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
Couples' communication, crises to partnerships (such as betrayals like infidelity and other deceptions), and healing unresolved grief and early life trauma as it affects present-day relationships are among the issues I have specific training in and a great deal of experience treating.
My View on the Nature of 'Disorders'
Let us all agree that there are some serious mental disorders. But too often in the practice of therapy, very natural responses to life situations are rendered as disorders. I don't see it that way.
