My Approach to Helping
If you’re feeling lost, alone, or like you've exhausted your resources to cope with life, it may be a good time to start therapy. Whether you’re depressed, overwhelmed, or struggling in relationship, my goal is to use my 20+ years experience as a psychotherapist to help you relieve suffering and arrive at a deeper understanding and appreciation for yourself. Pain is perhaps inevitable in life, but suffering need not be.
Psychotherapy is a powerful tool to uncover unconsciously held beliefs and change patterns of behavior that do not serve you. The experience of depression, anxiety, or relationship challenges can often be an invitation to new growth. In my practice, I will invite you to start where you’re at. I find mindfulness practice, self-compassion and a sense of humor to be helpful allies as the process unfolds.
My therapeutic approach is warm, empathic, and collaborative. I offer a free telephone consultation to answer any questions you may have and discuss how we might work together. I am currently accepting new clients and am available to meet with you via video, telephone, or in-person at my Union Street office, located in the Cow Hollow neighborhood of San Francisco. For more information about my practice, please see my website. I look forward to hearing from you.
