Circumstances, conditioning, and what is out of our consciousness can leave us feeling confused, destined to stay stuck replaying old patterns, or living a life that doesn’t feel chosen or authentic. Even when all is well we sometimes still struggle and need support.
Psychotherapy offers an experiential and educational process that helps us make meaning out of our lives, sort out where we're able to make effective change, and find ways of greater fulfillment in our relationship to self and others.
As a licensed mental health professional in the state of California I work with adults as individuals, or in couples / partnerships, at my San Francisco office. I'm also able to work with California residents remotely using secure online videoconference software.
My training and experience allows me to utilize an array of modalities, including: depth and psychodynamic; emotionally focused and attachment based; behavioral and cognitive. It's my passion to tailor services to most effectively meet the needs of my clients.
Additionally, I'm a certified Feeding Your Demons® psychotherapy facilitator, an Equine Interaction Professional in mental health, and am qualified to offer yoga therapy. All of these services can be effective adjuncts to traditional therapeutic interventions.
A psychotherapeutic relationship is unusual in that it is both very personal and also held in a framework that is fairly formal. This allows for exploration, expression, and discovery to happen in a way that is clear, supportive, and empowering.
I find a good place to start is through an initial consultation. This allows prospective clients a chance to get a feel for me and my approach, allows me an opportunity to make recommendations with an informed impression, and us to formulate next steps.
