Those of us who have ever considered getting some psychotherapy might be thought of in a whimsical sense as psychological wrestlers — grappling with various parts of ourselves that may have different ideas about how to respond to what life is dishing out. Whether our distress is overwhelming or mild, sudden or long familiar, therapy can help elicit truth and wisdom from within. That is what I help my therapy clients learn to do. The engine that drives the therapy is the unique relationship we develop together in our sessions over the course of time.
I have degrees from Brown University and Santa Clara University. I have been licensed since 1991. I am a graduate of the Palo Alto Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Training Program sponsored at Stanford by the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis and was a candidate at the Psychoanalytic Institute of Northern California in San Francisco from 2010-2011. I am also a clinical member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists and the Northern California Society for Psychoanalytic Psychology.
