Profession: Marriage and Family Therapist
Services: Psychotherapy/Counseling
Telehealth (Video/Phone) Therapy
Session Formats: Individuals
Practice Description: From the first session, I actively guide the client to discover and get rid of problematic emotional realities that were formed earlier in life, usually in childhood. The method I use to do this is often surprisingly swift. A therapist's ability to deeply understand peoples’ emotional experiences is a crucial part of the process of Coherence Therapy. A wide range of symptoms can be broken down as (sometimes invisible) lifelong emotional wounds are discovered. For more information, visit my website:

When working with couples, I draw on a combination of Coherence Therapy and Non-Violent Communication, after first determining each person's goal(s), which often varies within the couple.

I began my private practice in 1979, and welcome men and women who come from the culturally and sexually diverse backgrounds that make the Bay Area the rich mix that it is. Feel free to call me (510-653-1384 between 9am and 9pm) with questions about whether I have experience working with your issues and class, race, sexual or religious background. If we decide there are reasons for you not to work with me, I'll do my best to find you someone you are comfortable with.
