I provide a space free of distractions in order to focus clearly and deeply on the issues that are bringing you to therapy. Some people are seeking resolution to a specific problem, such as difficulty in love, past trauma, conflict with parents or crippling feelings of sadness and guilt. Others come to therapy to uncover their truest selves--to create purpose and meaning, to strive for the most satisfying life possible. I help people to increase their sense of power, agency and control while decreasing feelings of anxiety, self-hatred, guilt or shame. I strive to create an environment that feels supportive and safe.

Most of the people with whom I work are interested in improving the quality of relationships in their lives. I have helped many people who initially came to therapy with thoughts about suicide along with intense feelings of sadness, anxiety and guilt. I also frequently work with people who have experienced abuse.

I offer daytime and evening hours. I have two office locations in the Inner Sunset and in Hayes Valley. Please see my website for more details. If you have questions, please ask! I look forward to hearing from you.
