Here is how I may help you based on how I have helped many people in over 20 years in practice:

- Listening with purpose to bear witness to the experience you are going through

- Reframing your narrative to empower you to make different choices

- Using exercises for you to practice on your own for speedier, more enduring results

All my approaches are based on the latest research in brain/mind science. My clients and I collaborate on the best path to take. I offer options for brief help with a crisis or long term depth work or a blend of the two. My four different locations, a wide range of scheduling opportunities and a flexible attitude favor busy people.

More Info About My Practice

From the first session I ask clients to share with me their therapeutic goals. We then work to achieve them together. At the very least, clients come away knowing what has to be done to give them better results in their lives.

I have offices in Downtown and South Berkeley and, in San Francisco, in the Financial District and the Laurel Heights neighborhood.

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

- Healing from early life conditions. (This is sometimes called Developmental Trauma Disorder.)

- Feeling stuck in life and looking for liberation

- Communication problems in your couple

- Prolonged upset after a break up

- Recovery from an abusive relationship

- Emotional weight of a custody battle

- In love with a difficult person

My View on the Nature of 'Disorders'

Let us all agree that there are some serious mental disorders. But too often in the practice of therapy, very natural responses to life situations are rendered as disorders.

We do not call a scab a skin disorder. We call it a healing response. So much of what feels uncomfortable in our minds can be seen as a healing response. To rename it can tap the courage to liberate ourselves from old patterns.
