Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I enjoy working with individuals from adolescence into late adulthood. I am a down-to-earth, practical, warm, dedicated therapist, whom people tend to open up to easily. I am attentive to nurturing my relationships with my clients, as research indicates that this is the most important factor in determining successful therapy outcomes. Together we will explore your best qualities to increase your confidence, positive health, and effectily address your personal challenges. Therapy is a great way to address anxiety, depression, relationship issues, addictive behaviors, breakups, mid-life crisis, low self esteem/confidence, work stress, life transitions, and more. I provide a supportive yet challenging environment, working toward efficient easing of symptoms, while guiding clients to develop insight into personal dynamics/patterns for meaningful, long-lasting change. My primary modalities include: Humanistic (supportive/empathic), Cognitive Behavioral ("CBT") (changing faulty thinking & behaviors), and Psychodynamic (examining childhood and client/therapist relationship). I see clients in 3 locations: the UCSF Parnassus campus, Downtown San Francisco, and in central San Rafael (Lincoln/Mission). Thank you for visiting my profile!
