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:

  • depression
  • anxiety/panic attacks
  • self-esteem
  • 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).
