Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am a licensed psychotherapist with a private practice in Pacific Heights. I help people successfully meet life's challenges by offering individual, couple and family therapy. My approach is to take the time to understand and connect around your personal experiences while being direct with professional insight and feedback in a way clients appreciate and ultimately want to receive. Through the therapeutic process you can expect to gain knowledge about patterns and behaviors that are keeping you or a relationship feeling “stuck” and receive insight on how change can occur in the areas desired. I have expertise in helping clients address issues such as: anxiety and depression, significant life transitions, stress, relationship issues, family conflict, grief or loss and trauma. In my work, I have seen client's obtain significant changes that lead to growth, fulfillment and a higher level of happiness.
