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.
