Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I offer psychotherapy services for individuals, couples and groups. I specialize in the treatment of depression and anxiety, trauma and abuse, eating disorders/body image issues, life transitions as well as gay and lesbian issues. I offer an ongoing lesbian therapy group. My theoretical orientation centers on the self-psychology model which focuses on restoring the self through such basic therapeutic tools such as listening, understanding and clarifying as a means of addressing injuries of the past that intrude in present relationships. I work in Oakland and Orinda.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

I know it can be scary to reach out for help, especially in a culture that tells us we should be able to solve our problems on our own and, if we can’t, there is something wrong with us. Well, I’m here to challenge that culture that values independence more than interdependence, because as humans we are designed to be connected with others in relationships. And sometimes the first relationship that needs our focused attention is the one we have with ourselves in order to ‘show up’ in our relationships with others.
