..where you will be met by a psychotherapist
with the highest level of talent, training,
We often seek therapy in times of loneliness, desperation, hopelessness and misery. Therapy can answer our call by providing hope...hope for the possibility of light in a world that appears pretty dark. I am trained to work with you and help you defeat obstacles in your quest to live well. For myself, nothing is more satisfying than working with someone who is ready to work.
We have been thrown into our lives, for better or worse. No one asked for it, but our habits travel with us. Our past plays a role in who we are but it need not determine who we become. Therapy is a chance to have greater influence on your future.
I did my undergraduate work in psychological science at UC Berkeley and stayed in Berkeley for my Doctorate in Psychology at the Wright Institute. There, I was trained in psychoanalytic theory and practice. The training was excellent and the Wright is one of the places where I derived a lot of my strength as a therapist. I work with children, adolescents, adults, couple's and families. In addition, I run a men's group.
Please feel free to ask me any questions you have about how I work.
I have offices in the East Bay and San Francisco
