My Approach to Helping
If you are looking for help dealing with overwhelming emotions, relationship difficulties or life choices, I'm glad you've found me. People I have worked with have struggled with bad feelings about themselves, have suffered from anxiety, loss of a sense of purpose, felt unsure of next steps. The quality of the relationship you have with your therapist is the most important dimension in creating lasting change in therapy. When you come in, we will both be assessing whether there's a good match, considering your unique needs. If you think we might be able to connect, please get in touch.
More Info About My Practice
As a therapist I am focused on the possibility of change in the relationships you have with those who you care about. I will create a space that allows you to speak about the issues that matter to you, helping you to move towards resolution and healing.
My office is located two blocks from the Montgomery BART and MUNI station, in the Mills Building, easily accessible to people who work in downtown San Francisco.
Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
It takes a great deal of strength to come to therapy. Who wants to open themselves up to work through painful emotional material on a weekly basis? When so many of us have received the message that we should be strong and independent, that toughing it out alone is the only real way to solve problems. When we run into trouble with this stance, it can sometimes fill us with shame and doubt. People who come in often have tried everything from self-help, meditation, religion, positive psychology and mind-altering drugs. It is when they still have the resourcefulness to try calling me that I see them, ready to work, ready to look at making some much-needed changes.
