Suffering from chronic stress, worry, depression, trauma or a noisy inner critic can undermine your ability to cope with the flow of life. You may function on the outside but feel stuck on the inside. Psychological flow requires developing awareness of your inner experience, openness to your feelings and vulnerability and knowing what matters to you and taking steps in that direction. I offer warm, thoughtful, and collaborative psychotherapy to adults who desire change, personal fulfillment, relationship satisfaction and overall well-being. This means knowing what matters to you, your deepest values, and your own guide to living.
I encourage our work together to be focused on the present. I use mindfulness practices, somatic awareness, inquiry and insight, psychological education and the latest in neuroscience discoveries to guide our work together.
As a psychologist for over 20 years and a non-dual meditation practitioner for over 30, I bring interpersonal and trans-personal skills to my work, with a goal to move through suffering to to a greater sense of fulfillment and vitality. I received my doctorate in clinical psychology from the Wright Institute in Berkeley in 2001 and had specialized training at the San Francisco Jung Institute and the UCSF Infant-Parent program.
I enjoy working with adults across the lifespan and am committed to openness and inclusiveness and support diversity.
