My Approach to Helping

I offer therapy to people who want to create positive, lasting changes in their relationships and lives. I offer counseling that promotes healing, encourages understanding, and unlocks potential in a safe, supportive environment.

Unresolved emotional challenges can stifle your creativity, ambition, confidence, and relationships. Loss and trauma can cause depression, sadness, and pain that inhibit your potential.

I rely on an empathic approach to therapy. I respect personal values, choices, and lifestyles. I use interactive talk therapy combined with other techniques, such as eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). The presenting problems are first alleviated. Profound change and personal growth are then able to take place through understanding and healing of the deeper underlying issues.

More Info About My Practice

If you have any questions or want to set up an appointment, feel free to email or call me. If we're not a good match or can't meet for any reason, I'll work to provide a referral.

I have availability evenings, days, and Saturdays. I offer sliding-scale rates based on financial need.

I'm a licensed marriage and family therapist who hails from England. I received a BA in psychology from Stanford University, and an MA from New College in San Francisco. I've worked in mental health since 1993, providing group, family, and couples therapy, offering crisis prevention and child advocacy, and working in the field of shyness research.
