My Approach to Helping

Therapy can help you lead a creative, more vibrant existence while overcoming challenges. It's easy to become stuck in old thought patterns that no longer work. A caring therapeutic relationship can offer you the courage to lead a fulfilling, meaningful life.

For 18 years, I have been helping clients work through challenges and navigate a range of issues, freeing them to make better choices. In addition to my clinical work with clients, I am also a teacher and supervisor at various programs throughout the Bay Area, as well as the director of counseling at California College of the Arts. I am sensitive to and aware of my client's unique economic, cultural, and spiritual perspectives. I enjoy work with people of all genders, sexual orientations, religions, ethnicities, races, or cultural backgrounds. I believe there is always more for me to learn.

I help clients with issues such as depression, relationship concerns, creative blocks, anxiety, personality disorders, life transitions, loss and grief, trauma, abuse, career issues, and sexuality difficulties. Many of my patients also use therapy to enhance their personal, creative, or spiritual growth.

More Info About My Practice

It's important to choose the right therapist, so I offer a free 15-minute phone consultation to explore whether we are a good fit. My standard fee for individual therapy Is $175, but I offer sliding-scale fees for low-income clients. Sessions for couples are typically 90 minutes, and cost $230. In addition to therapy, I also offer coaching and consultation to those in creative fields, as well as talks to organizations.
