Welcome to my psychotherapy practice
As an experienced psychotherapist, my passion is assisting you as you work through the issues that are distressing you in your life.
I have met with many women and men who begin therapy not realizing how truly courageous they are, being vulnerable is an act of courage.
Often prospective clients are fearful of psychotherapy, they expect the experience to be painful. While working together both therapist and client create the environment and process that works for both. Therapy can bring up intense feelings and it can sometimes be joyful, a place to fully explore your potential and laughter can be a part of it.
We can't change traumatic and difficult situations of the past, but we can work together to better understand the emotional triggers, and resolve the conflicts and challenges in your life.
My approach to therapy is to deeply listen to what is troubling you and to utilize my therapeutic skills to help you unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing more fulfilling relationships and/or a more meaningful life.
I look forward to working with you to help you achieve your goals.
My office is in Oakland, California. Please call or email me for an individual, group, couples or family therapy consultation today.
