Psychotherapy and couples counseling
My approach to therapy is grounded in modern research on the brain, trauma and attachment, as well as Jungian theory. I work with EMDR and other engaged, relational methods to help people resolve anxiety, stress, depression and disturbing memories that are holding them back.
I make it easy and convenient for you to use your PPO insurance to help cover the cost of therapy sessions. Contact me for details.
People usually come to therapy because something painful has happened — a divorce, a lay-off, a break-up, a death. Others choose to come because they sense the possibility of a better life — a real relationship, a more satisfying career. Either way, therapy is a quest to feel out and reveal what we normally keep hidden. To think what may sometimes seem un-thinkable. And in doing so, to discover and accept who we truly are, on a deep level. It often involves grief, but it also invokes joy.
My clients have reported some of the following benefits:
As a therapist, I draw on my own life experience, as well as my training in Gestalt, Jungian therapy, EMDR and expressive arts therapy. Born in Asia, and raised in the UK and Europe, I draw on multiple cultural traditions. I also offer therapy in French.
I am a core faculty member at CIIS, in the Integral Counseling Psychology department, and I provide trainings at various Bay Area mental health agencies.
