Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I help people who struggle with relationships. I believe that anxiety, depression, addiction issues, and lack of intimacy with family and friends are frequently the result of being out of touch with ourselves. Working with a therapist you trust can help deepen your relationship with yourself and thereby enable you to form deeper connections with those you love. I offer a safe, non-judgemental space for you to explore your life and your feelings; a place where you can experiment with being your whole self. I work with individuals, couples, families and adolescents, and have training and experience in a wide range of mental health issues, including trauma and PTSD, intimate partner violence, grief counseling, anxiety disorders, alcohol and drug addiction, co-dependency and depression. I work from a psychodynamic perspective and blend evidenced-based practices with an artful approach to working with psyche. I offer therapy in both English and Spanish and am also conversationally fluent in French. In addition to my private practice, I also teach in the MA Counseling program at Pacifica Graduate Institute. I am happy to answer any questions you have about therapy or the therapeutic process.
