My Approach to Helping

Therapy isn't just skill, or compassion, or strategies. It's the intimate process of thinking, speaking and listening together in ways that are creative and heartfelt, and provide insight and release from the myriad varieties of mental pain.

As we sit together, we are finding out how to trust each other. Through conversation, meditative inquiry, imaginative play, and sometimes just being together quietly, we are creating the environment that allows you to work through past sorrows and losses that hold you hostage to hurtful and stagnant beliefs about yourself and the world.
As we work together, you will find that you want to, and can, open yourself to what is new and hopeful; that you are curious and excited, rather than confused and resigned.

Our work is supported by the depth of the relationship we create between us. It is particular to who you are and what you need. I will help you to develop your trust, your spontaneity, and your creativity in ways that are right for you.

Some of our work will be hard, and some will be fun. It will all rest on the bedrock of the relationship we create between us. Another way of thinking about this work is that it is about learning how to create better relationships.

More Info About My Practice

For more than twenty-five years I have worked in a comfortable home office in North Berkeley, with easy access by car, BART, and AC Transit. I offer weekday and week-end appointments. I don't accept insurance (and am happy to tell you why), but I hope my sliding scale can make it possible for us to work together.
