Life is full of challenges.
You don't have to face them alone.
We all have painful and confusing aspects of our lives. We try to make sense of our experiences, but may not be able to do so on our own. I can help you understand and accept your life with greater compassion and emotional freedom. We will work together to recognize patterns of thought, feeling and behavior that get in the way of your fulfilling your potential for self acceptance, happiness and love. Please contact me for more information or to make an appointment.
I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and Psychoanalyst in San Francisco with over 25 years of experience. I trained at CPMC, UCSF and Mount Zion. I have completed advanced training in modern psychoanalysis at the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis (SFCP). Additionally, I am on the faculty at SFCP and teach courses for graduate students and clinicians in the Bay Area.
My areas of special interest include helping adults and teens with anxiety, depression, grieving and loss, relationship issues, transitions, pregnancy related stresses, parenting, self-esteem, gender and sexuality (LGBTQ), abuse and traumatic histories.
I bring compassion, warmth and a sense of humor to all of my work.
