Therapy for Individuals and Couples in Oakland and San Francisco

I am a licensed clinical psychologist that provides individual and couples counseling to adults, young adults, and adolescents in the Rockridge area of Oakland.  I also offer consultation/supervision services for new psychologists entering the field.

My approach to psychotherapy is collaborative and interactive, creating a safe environment to discuss and reflect on the current issues that bring you into my office.  I work with the goal of relieving your immediate suffering while also thinking of the longer term goal of better understanding yourself and your relationship to the world around you – work, school, relationships with friends, your partner or other family members.  It is my experience that therapy can have a significant impact on your life and lead to feeling more satisfied, clearer and more grounded about who you are and what you want from your life.

My work is grounded in two theoretical frameworks: Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).
