SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA COUPLES COUNSELOR & INTIMACY & SEX THERAPIST
Sessions with me will feel perhaps different than other therapy you have attended before. My style is goal oriented and a good fit for motivated clients in a brief therapy format. It is built for folks who want to feel better and get on with their lives and not be in therapy forever. My technique however is then sometimes valued by many who then want to stay and grow and learn even more as it works well and feels empowering and safe. I currently have clients who have been with me for years for weekly check in’s, maintenance and to help navigate life as it challenges us sometimes. I assign homework and use practice examples in session to practice being a better you right then and there instead of just talking about it. I attend to the whole picture and work in conjunction your medical professionals as well if desired, as a support role from a therapeutic stance. My goal is to empower my clients and have them leave feeling whole and balanced and ready to take on life however they see fit.
I have a holistic practice and have training and/ or certificates in Hakomi, Imago, Gottman Couples Counseling and Nutrition, which facilitates a holistic approach to my psychotherapy work. When you sit in the room with me as a client however you’ll likely feel the pragmatic, direct, goal driven side of me as well as I love to empower action and real results in my sessions. Clients seem to really like this blend and comment on it often as a favorite part of how I work.
I welcome diversity in my practice and understand sometimes how hard it is to look for help while in pain. I support this quest and hold my practice to include varying sexual orientations, race, culture, age groups, and life styles.
As for my personal experiences in therapy and self-growth, those are abundant. I’ve had many years of
individual therapy and couples therapy (Imago) for my beautiful strong loving marriage. So many great
triumphs and rich lessons, and these are all a part of what influence me as a therapist. I love supporting individuals and couples realize their fullest loving potential.
