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.
The approach I offer combines existential-humanistic 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 rising up to meet your life’s challenges.
I apply the principles of lifespan developmental psychology to clarify maturational tasks and support your commitment to your goals and intentions. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I help individuals, couples, and families establish healthier relationships and guide couples through a process of clearing resentments, repairing emotional injuries, and improving their communication about sex, money, and life planning.
Convenient north Berkeley location, close to BART and UC Berkeley campus.
Licensed MFT since 1991.
I’m pleased to announce the upcoming publication of a new book, Dreamwork in Holistic Psychotherapy of Depression: An Underground Stream that Guides and Heals (Karnac Books, in press). 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, intergenerational trauma. I present a synthesis of Jungian and existential psychotherapy, detailing how attention to archetypal symbolism brings into immediate focus new responses to pressing life challenges. The book contends that allowing oneself to be affected by dream images and narratives promotes emotional, relational, and spiritual rejuvenation. It will interest those who experience depression, as well as their therapists and loved ones. The book details a method that can be practised 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.
