I work with individuals struggling with difficulties in relationship, major life transitions such as children, marriage or divorce, and career difficulties.

Painful emotions such as depression, anxiety, obsessive thoughts, and addictive behaviors when not considered can lead to many difficulties in your life. My aim, however, is to try and understand what these symptoms are really telling you. 

Today or at this stage in your life, there may be feelings or thoughts that are confusing, destructive, repetitive, and difficult for yourself or for someone else. I may be able to help and if I cannot I will help find someone for you. 

Approach to Psychotherapy and Counseling

In my San Francisco Therapy and Counseling practice, we will work together to create a unique environment for you to experience a deep and sustained change.

Psychological growth comes from creating and breaking, dialoguing and relating, actualizing internal harmony and handling disharmony, and taking the small and large steps necessary for you to feel good about who you are and what may become of you.

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and while I am interested in depth-oriented psychotherapy I am not a psychoanalyst or Jungian Analyst. If you would like a referral to this type of approach, please let me know. 

Contact me to see if we are a right fit; if we are not I am comfortable to refer.   


"Emotion is the chief source of all becoming-conscious.  There can be no transforming of darkness into light and of apathy into movement without emotion. -C.G. Jung
