We are all born with the capacity for joy and love, but sometimes, as adults, we forget the wondrous sense of possibility or dreams we once had for our lives. Psychotherapy can help you reconnect with yourself and your hopes and aspirations for your life. It can also help you: (1) Develop more awareness about your needs (2) Express yourself more openly and authentically (3) Understand the ways your childhood impacts your experience of yourself as an adult (4) Cope with circumstances such as loss, illness, disability, anxiety, depression, parenting, marriage, aging, care-giving or conflicts in the workplace. If you would like to discuss your needs, please call me at 415-533-9724.

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Psychotherapist specializing in therapy for couples, individual adults and adolescents. I practice Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) which encourages clients to challenge the thoughts, beliefs and assumptions they hold about the world around them. CBT teaches clients that they can be more active in choosing how they will respond to life. Clients are encouraged to look at their current behaviors and change the ones that are not benefitting them. Clients become more empowered and take control of their lives. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy can help put you back in the drivers seat and provide you with the tools you need to accomplish your goals.

Psychotherapy can be a great opportunity. I think the bravest and healthiest people are willing to submit themselves to the process of psychotherapy. Much good can come from it. When we suffer in silence, we are unable to see many things. Psychotherapy gives us a chance to examine ourselves in a new way. Moreover, modern psychotherapy can provide us with lasting change. The brain has neural-plasticity, meaning it can change. Our patterns may seem impossible to change. Yet change is possible. Call me at 408-249-0014 to begin changing your life. You are worth it!

My approach is grounded in an existential-humanistic psychology tradition that is inspired by relational and psychodynamic therapeutic philosophies. What this essentially means is that I see my role as your therapist as one that tries to see you in a holistic way through dialogue so that you may better see yourself (your patterns, meaning behind your experience, etc.), and create the person that you want to become through a healthier mindset and future choices.

Many clients have reported that their past therapists have just "sat there and listened" without offering any advice of value. While we all need a sounding board and time to tell our story, many clients are interested in their therapists' feedback. When and where appropriate, I am willing to offer my thoughts and experience to my clients. It is through building a healthy, authentic relationship with our therapists that enables us to use this as a model for our other significant relationships. Psychotherapy is the perfect place to begin (or continue) this process.

Are you noticing a vague sense of inner angst that just doesn't go away, despite your best intentions? Are you noticing the same patterns or cycles with yourself or with relationships that leave you feeling sad, angry, worried, depressed, or hurt? So often we notice that a part of us is off kilter, but without the tools and support to change, we tend to end up in the same negative patterns again and again, despite our desire to change. By offering specific specific tools for inner work and outer relationships, together we can help you move to a place of feeling empowered and at peace within. Please feel free to give me a call today at 925-520-5263.

Regardless of therapeutic technique, the most important part of psychotherapy is the relationship between client and therapist. Therapy is best when it is collaborative. In my work, I support, and sometimes challenge, you to dig deep, to examine what is working for you, and the ways you are not in alignment with your own vision of health. There are good reasons each of us has come to behave as we do. Even if some of our behaviors or beliefs no longer serve us, or even harm us, it is important that we understand how we came to use certain strategies in order to let them go and choose new ways of being in the world.

James Hillman once said, "We've had a hundred years of psychotherapy and the world is getting worse." While there are many occasions where the validation and listening endemic to psychotherapy makes sense, there are times where we over assume that "feeling better" and "changing behavior" are the same. Grey Matters International, Inc. goes after the forgotten brain laws to behavior change that therapists miss when processing hours and hours of dialogues with people. Utilizing a cutting edge technology to facilitate the emotional process of change, we can make the therapy process way more effective, faster, and with less money spent.

I see psychotherapy as a process of reflecting on the difficulties in your life in the context of a gradually developing relationship of safety and trust with an understanding therapist. In this relationship you can begin to open up issues and feelings that may have felt too difficult to explore on your own. An experienced therapist will help you to gain new insights on your life, perhaps pointing to areas where growth can occur. Issues that are painful can be addressed as you are ready and can often be resolved by exploring all the complex factors involved. Good psychotherapy will give you a deeper understanding and appreciation of yourself, and the freedom to make new choices.

I love doing psychotherapy with individuals. It is an exploration of who you are, your stengths, where to you get stuck? Many issues you may be struggling with just vanish with a new understanding of your life and your body's responses to stress and trauma. Sometimes, specific tools and skills need to be learned and practiced. Safety and confidetiality are the first requirements in working well together. Next comes attunement. Have you ever felt like someone really really gets you? That is what good therapy does. Being really understood by someone makes us feel better about ourselves and removes our shame, allowing us to connect with others and enjoy our life rather than be burdened by it.

My style of psychotherapy is to help clients increase their Emotional Intelligence, which means developing greater self awareness and ability to manage one's own feelings and reactions. I combine Gestalt Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Body Awareness Practices, Family Systems, (EMDR) for trauma, and Mindfulness Practices. When people can have greater intimacy with themselves, they can have greater intimacy with others.
