What can you gain from therapy with me?
Therapy is a dynamic and collaborative process involving the therapist and client working together to arrive at understanding and growth in a safe and nurturing environment. Depression, anxiety and other feelings may be normal reactions to the things that are happening in your life. However, when these feelings become overwhelming, they can have a significant impact on your ability to function.
I seek to cultivate your self-knowledge and to help you help yourself. The end result is often feeling more functional and comfortable and getting more out of life. One general goal I have found common among many clients is a desire to turn hindsight into insight. To this end, we can work together to manage your current symptoms and to explore their causes so that they come up less often.
The path may be challenging. I can walk it with you.
My Areas of Interest
Although I work with a broad variety of clients, I have a particular interest in working with relationships (couples and more than couples), with people going through phase of life changes, with people exploring gender and/or orientation, and with other therapists and mental health professionals. I offer a discounted rate for pre-licensed therapists.
I have training in Depth Psychology, couples therapy, family therapy, and solution focused therapy, all of which I continue to study. This variety of techniques informs my particular style as a therapist.
My About Me page covers some frequently asked questions that you may have about working with me.
Our First Appointment
My office is on Geary Blvd across from the iconic Mel's Drive-In. Within our first few appointments, we will decide together whether or not I am the right therapist for you. If not, I can provide referrals to qualified therapists that may better serve your needs. Clients sometimes ask, “How can I prepare for our first appointment?” I recommend that you think about your goals for therapy so that we can discuss them.
I accept cash, checks, major credit cards, Venmo, and Apple/Google Pay at the time of service. I may be able to make some accommodation for a sliding scale fee based on your circumstances and we can discuss this option.
