kind compassionate therapist


As a psychotherapist, I have witnessed my clients remake themselves and perform extraordinary feats, and I have been impressed time and again by the resilience and creativity of human beings.

I offer the chance to experience relief, clarity, integration, hope, and breakthrough. I'm one of the most experienced, knowledgeable, and highest-rated therapists in California, and I've been helping people in a variety of ways for almost 30 years. Whatever it is you're facing, whatever it is you're hoping to achieve, the pain you're hoping to resolve, the relationships you'd like to reconcile, the trauma and life transitions you want to better understand, I am uniquely equipped to help with unconditional acceptance regardless of your worldview, culture, politics, past, age, or gender.

My Philosophy

Opportunities often present themselves in unforeseen ways. The capacity for human beings to remake their lives, to find every and any resource to heal, grow, and thrive, even if only a droplet, a spark, an inch, will always astound me. You have so much more than you realize. Allow me to accompany you on your journey to your best self and help you find the solutions you seek.

"Water is fluid, soft, and yielding. But water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield. As a rule, whatever is fluid, soft, and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard.

"This is another paradox: What is soft is strong."— Lao-Tzu
