Therapy is a process of determining pathways for change. I assist clients with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, relationship impasses, anger management, trauma, job-related stress, burnout, grieving and bereavement, conflicts about sexuality, trust, and establishing healthy boundaries. I utilize Jungian and existential psychotherapy, evocative dreamwork, meditation, Psychosynthesis, guided imagery, the rejuvenating practices of yoga and breath awareness, and other spiritual principles and lifestyle changes to aid you in meeting your current challenges. I apply principles of lifespan developmental psychology to clarify maturational tasks and support your commitment to specific goals and intentions. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I help individuals, couples, and families establish secure attachments in relationships and guide couples through the process of clearing resentments, repairing emotional injuries, and improving communication about sex, money, and life planning.
Convenient north Berkeley location, close to BART and UC Berkeley campus.

New publication: Dreamwork in Holistic Psychotherapy of Depression: An Underground Stream that Guides and Heals (Karnac Books, Fall 2016). This book describes how dreamwork can help alleviate depression, in both long-term and time-limited psychotherapy, and in self-treatment. The text explores how dreams shed light on issues contributing to depression—including drug and alcohol abuse, divorce, death and bereavement, conflicts about sex, health and body image, parenting, workplace stress and burnout, and ancestral, inter-generational trauma. Combining Jungian and existential psychotherapy, I describe how attention to archetypal symbolism brings into focus new responses to pressing life challenges; and how allowing oneself to be affected by dream images and narratives promotes emotional, relational, and spiritual rejuvenation. This book will interest those who experience depression, as well as their therapists and loved ones. It details a method that can be practiced by couples and family members and adapted to group work in a variety of clinical, educational, and occupational settings—any place where people feel safe and free to explore, reveal, and discover themselves.
