You can feel better.
We all need help from time to time, and as a licensed psychotherapist I’m here to help you make things better. If you’re having problems that are tough to solve all by yourself, I’m here to share what I know, to help you figure out how you got here, and to work with you to change things.
I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor with over 20 years of experience working in mental health. I see clients in my private practice in San Francisco.
WHAT'S IT LIKE TO WORK WITH ME?
Your experience of therapy will be as practical and “user-friendly” as possible, so that you’re always clear about how we see the problem and how and why we’re making changes. We want to help you feel better as soon as possible, and stay that way.
If you’re struggling with a life transition or troubled by unhelpful patterns that keep cropping up, my specialty in cognitive behavioral therapy may be helpful for you. I also specialize in working with substance use issues in an alternative to the 12-step approach; couples counseling to help you and your partner communicate and resolve conflicts more effectively; treating trauma to keep painful experiences from your past from overwhelming you; and Internet/online issues so that your online interactions can be healthy and fulfilling.
ONLINE COUNSELING AVAILABLE
I also offer online counseling if you might be better served by working together via text chat, videoconference or email.
My office is in the Noe Valley neighborhood of San Francisco, and is easy to reach from just about anywhere in the Bay area.
