Welcome

Are you struggling with stress, anxiety, depression, relationships, chronic pain or other issues? By reaching out for help you are taking a courageous first step toward easing your pain. When you begin therapy with a therapist with whom you feel comfortable, you may start to feel relief right away. The rewards of engaging in therapy can last throughout your life. 

My goal is to create a safe space where you can explore what you want from life and your relationships, and try new behaviors. My therapeutic style is interactive and collaborative. We'll work together to increase your access to your inner ways of knowing and your capacity to try new things.
My practice is in Oakland, Castro Valley and Berkeley, where I serve a diverse range of individuals. I invite you to explore my website to find out more information.
