Therapy for Individuals and Couples

You may be reading this because you feel held back from your potential, mired in inner conflict with yourself or with your partner. Perhaps you are trying to hold yourself together, or hold a relationship together. As if life wasn’t full enough of surprises, the Coronavirus jolted us into a new reality of social isolation, highlighting relationship problems and sometimes adding to work stress.

In my work, I help individuals and couples work understand what holds them back from feeling more grounded, connected and resilient. We look at emotional states you have gotten stuck in. People I work with often complain about repetitive patterns they are stuck in, whether with internal, ruminative thoughts or emotional cycles. These patterns can hold someone back from their potential for decades. There are often good reasons why these patterns have stayed in place. We can take a closer look at whether you want to let them go.

Improving How You Relate to Others

Working with me can help you:

  • Develop stronger self-confidence and self-esteem
  • Cultivate a stronger connection with others
  • Get better at handling anxiety and stress
  • Work out cross-cultural differences
  • Deal with recurring relationship problems
  • Work with strong emotions like isolation, rejection, anger and depression
  • Increase emotional intelligence and self-awareness

On A Personal Note…

Like many others in the Bay Area, I moved here after growing up abroad. I offer a warm, steady presence, patience, curiosity and an international perspective on cultural issues.

I welcome adults of all races and identities. If you think we might be able to connect, give me a call.
