I am a faculty member of the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis and a Training and Supervising Psychoanalyst at the Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis.
I have helped a variety of clients with a wide range of psychological difficulties. I work with adults, college-age and up. The people I work with range from those suffering from debilitating anxiety, depression, and trauma to those who come in simply for relationship issues or greater self understanding.
I can help you with:
- Relationship problems (gay or straight)
- Anxiety & Depression
- Low self-esteem
- Intimacy issues
- Trauma, PTSD
- Recovery from difficult childhood events
I approach therapy collaboratively and view the work as a joint effort to support, encourage, guide, and challenge the people I work with to make the changes they want. My goal is to create a safe, containing space, where any issue can be discussed and explored.
I put together this website to give prospective clients a better idea of my approach, training, and experience. I find that the best way to discover if my approach works for you is to take advantage of the free initial consultation I offer. During this initial consultation we can discuss your needs, my approach, and how well the two fit together. This initial meeting is free and can be set up by e-mailing me or calling me at 925-297-5177.
