Hello, and Welcome to my psychotherapy practice.
Therapy is not a "one size fits all" approach. I am an integrative psychotherapist with an extensive background in working with mood disorders, dual diagnoses, pro-social behavior management and stress reduction. My approach is to integrate elements of several schools of therapy to address the emotional, behavioral, psychological, cognitive and spiritual dimensions of my clients. This strength-based approach allows me to design a therapeutic strategy for clients based on their specific areas of concern.
I am an experienced clinician and Clinical Faculty member, UCSF School of Medicine. I have experience in inpatient, outpatient and partial hospitalization programs and am comfortable working with child, adolescent, and adult clients who manifest a broad range of emotional difficulty. I enjoy collaborating with other professionals involved in my client's treatment.
I offer expertise as a Certified Group Psychotherapist (CGP) and facilitate ongoing dynamic, supportive groups that are structured to enhance personal growth. My background allows me to offer specialized approaches in CBT, expressive arts therapy, guided imagery, and stress management techniques.
As a solution-focused therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
