Now and then life presents us with the unexpected. This might be an unwelcome event, the loss of a loved one, disability, recovery from addiction, a major change, economic insecurity, loneliness. You will find me to be a compassionate and capable psychotherapist who in our work together can help you to live a happier, more contented and fulfilling life. So then, where are you now? Where would you like to go from here? Would you like to create a new narrative? I will do what I can to be of assistance. I practice here in North Berkeley. Let's talk.

I am a graduate of the Wright Institute. I bring to the consulting room a life time of healing experience. I completed post-graduate training at UCSF and at the Psychology and Student Counseling Center at UC Berkeley. I continue to enjoy working with students and teachers. I enjoy learning.

There is a special place in my practice for adult children of alcoholics and others who come from dysfunctional families. Those of us born into minority communities often carry an additional burden. Relationship building can often be difficult quite apart from one's sexual orientation. We can overcome internalized oppression.
