I am a warm therapist with a comfortable style, over twenty years of experience and an excellent reputation in the professional community.  Prior to establishing a full-time private practice, I provided therapy at the Departments of Psychiatry at UCSD and Rady Children's Hospital, and at Scripps Clinic, and trained other therapists.  
 I have expertise in many schools of therapy and healing, and will adapt our work together to meet your specific goals and needs.  Many woman and men find my unique use of a mind/body technique called "focusing," integrated with other therapies, remarkably transformative, clarifying and empowering. 
RELIEF, PEACE OF MIND, BALANCE  Through our therapy you may shift out of your pain and the memories that hold you back, and tap into inner knowingness, wisdom and strength. You may be released from distressing symptoms, make important decisions, and become able to act in ways that are most true to yourself and propel your life forward.          
THRIVING RELATIONSHIPS: Couples often say they now relate to their partners in ways that simply work better. They finally feel supported and understood and have a deeper connection. With the tools to handle conflict productively, they also become confident in the resilience of their relationship.  Such positive results are often just as true for relationships with children and other family members, friends and co-workers, and when you are seen individually. Even subtle changes in the way you relate to someone can be a powerful catalyst in transforming a relationship. 
 Areas of Speciality include Personal Growth; Depression and Bipolar Disorder; Anxiety, Panic Attacks and OCD; Couples, Intimacy and Relationship Issues; Trauma and Abuse; Grief, Loss, Life Transitions and Divorce; Compulsive Overeating; Chronic Pain and Medical Conditions; Workplace Issues and Stress Management; Men's Issues; Women's Issues; Young Adults; Mind/Body Issues; Addictions; and Codependency. 
    You, too, may find our work life changing even after prior therapy was of limited benefit.  I invite you call or e-mail me for a free fifteen-minute phone consultation.
