I provide individual and couples psychotherapy/counseling and referral services primarily to adults. I have day and evening appointments.
My style is active, compassionate and collaborative. I use an integrated approach working with my clients. Because I believe that not one type of therapy works for everyone, I use a variety of approaches and techniques (e.g. cognitive-behavioral therapy, strength-based, client-centered, solution-focused, mindfulness) depending on your needs and personality.
Some examples of issues I address are:
- anxiety/panic attacks
- relationships/communication problems
- stress management
- career/work and finances
- grief and loss
- cultural issues
- personal growth/self-development/spirituality
- LGBTQ concerns
- and other issues
After our initial meeting, if we are not a good fit or I believe another provider would be more appropriate, I will provide you with appropriate referrals.
For those needing a reduced fee, I offer a sliding scale (range of fees) based on your ability to pay. Please call (510) 594-4003 to discuss fees and sliding scale availability.
I also accept some insurance such as PPO plans (clients are reimbursed).
