CRISIS, in Chinese, consists of the characters for ‘emergency’ and ‘opportunity.’ Difficulties in life can end up being the greatest gift, if you grow from them. It is part of the human experience to feel sadness, detachment, isolation, anxiety, rage, self-loathing, or destructive impulses. Painful as they can be, these chronic feelings are valuable when used as guideposts to underlying issues that need to be resolved. Even though you may not be able to imagine anything different, the truth is that something better is waiting for you if you have the courage to move towards it.
Individual therapy offers a relationship that is dedicated exclusively to you and your development: a laboratory in which we can explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
One of the biggest factors determining the outcome of your relationships is whether you have the right tools to navigate the challenges that arise.
I am a San Francisco-based psychotherapist offering individual and couples counseling to help you live life with more joy, connection, and meaning.
If you are sick of being stuck, and feel ready to move beyond painful patterns, I can support you. Specializations include working with anxiety, depression, and issues of identity. I am trained extensively to work with trauma and PTSD, which often underlay various symptoms and conditions. With couples, my work is focused in high conflict relationships and infidelity.
