Psychotherapy in Oakland

For Adults, Teens, Children and Couples



Starting therapy can often feel intimidating. Change is hard. People seek out help for a variety of reasons. Unable to play, or imagine something different? Sometimes we just feel stuck in our current patterns. There are times when we feel afraid, confused, overwhelmed and sad. Overwhelming feelings of distress may require another person to help you explore and understand their origins, so they no longer have such a grasp. Therapy can be a relationship where you can feel safe and free to be who you are with another person to explore what you want. 



As a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, I offer depth-oriented psychotherapy to women, men, trans and gender non-conforming individuals of all ages, ethnicities and sexual orientations. I enjoy working with a variety of people with different needs and symptoms. I take into consideration the larger social setting that goes beyond on one's family history. 

My style is warm, relational and reflective. Once work begins collaboration is likely to remain fresh and stimulating.
