I am a psychotherapist with 38 years of experience. I see adults individually and couples in San Francisco and Walnut Creek.
I work with individuals who are struggling with such issues as depression, anxiety, addiction recovery and grief. I also see individuals who are questioning their involvement with a married person or whose partner has had an affair. My style is warm, thoughtful and engaging. I am highly experienced, sensitive, down to earth, and do not rely on prefabricated techniques. Rather, I believe in the healing power of a deep and creative therapeutic relationship. I have a strong background in socio-cultural diversity.
The kind of therapy I provide can best be understood as a special kind of relationship in which you come to experience enough trust to share what it is that could not be shared before and where you can feel deeply received and profoundly understood in an atmosphere of respect and collaboration.

I work with couples to help create more intimacy and to understand the roots of conflict to which there seems to be no resolution. I find that frequently the argument isn’t about what it appears to be. In addition, I also help with issues connected to making a commitment as well as socio-cultural diversity.
I also work with couples who are struggling to put the pieces of their relationship back together after the revelation of infidelity. The discovery of infidelity can be a a traumatic experience and deserves to be met with empathy, understanding and support for healing.
