My Approach to Helping

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, my focus is helping people live fuller, more satisfying relational lives. My style is engaged and interpersonal. I integrate body-centered, attachment based, experiential, mindful, cognitive, psychodynamic and trauma resolution approaches.

My specializations include:

* Body-centered psychotherapy
* Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy for couples in monogamous or polyamorous relationships
* EMDR for trauma resolution and anxiety management
* Life Transitions
* LGBTQ issues of identity and relationship

I have offices in the Noe Valley neighborhood of San Francisco and the Lake Merritt area of Oakland.
Trained in somatic ( body-centered) psychology, emotionally focused couples therapy, group dynamics and EMDR (a trauma recovery therapy), my practice is influenced by over 40 years of mind-body practice including Kripalu yoga, Phoenix Rising yoga therapy and Aikido as well as over twenty years of corporate business experience.

More Info About My Practice

For clients with Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) or insurance plans that include coverage for out-of-network providers, I provide end-of-month fee payment summaries and diagnosis information so you can apply for reimbursement from insurers.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

As a licensed marriage and family therapist, I specialize in helping people with their relational lives. Most of the people who choose to work with me are sincerely committed to having a fulfilling and connected life. Sometimes that means developing skills to manage anxiety, mood, low self esteem or resolve trauma. Sometimes that means working with you individually or in couple or family therapy. In particular, I am experienced in helping couples from all lifestyle orientations ( Traditional, Poly, Queer ,Kink) to deepen their emotional, physical and sexual connection.
