tree over lakeWe know that life isn’t always easy.  But sometimes, difficulties become overwhelming.  Painful events may derail our everyday lives, making it hard to function.  Or we may seem to function well, while struggling with difficult, ongoing problems.  Our relationships may be stressful, or loneliness may leave us feeling empty. We may experience intense distress when someone close to us is suffering.  At times, the hassles of daily life can just pile up, leaving us out of touch with feelings of happiness, calm, empathy, or purpose.

Yet there is reason to hope.  It can get easier, and finding the right therapist can help tremendously.  My approach is warm, practical, and down-to-earth.  I use evidence-based* therapies, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), to maximize the benefits for my clients.  You’ll find more information on this site about me and how I can help; you can also contact me directly for more information.

If you are going through a difficult time, know that you are not alone.  There are many forms of support available.  My resources page has information on classes, groups, and other services in the Bay Area.  To start building more support now, schedule a free no obligations phone consultation.  I can help you with the next steps.


* evidence-based therapies are those whose benefits have been demonstrated by robust scientific research
