In working with many people of various ages and cultural backgrounds in the past 28 years, I have come to appreciate that each individual’s emotional and psychological challenges are unique. Therefore, in close collaboration with each client, I strive to use all my clinical training, experience, and the latest methods of psychotherapy to tailor treatment to address the particular issues of each client. One of the areas that I specialize in is working with emotional difficulties related to anxiety and depression, anxiety disorders, panic disorders, stress related problems and trauma related issues.
I have extensive clinical training and experience in the field of psychotherapy, and have been working with adults, children and adolescents for over 28 years. I have a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology, I am a licensed Marriage Family Therapist and a certified Jungian Analyst (Jungian Psychonanalyst). I offer in-depth psychotherapy to individuals, couples, and groups, and offer Jungian Analysis and Consultation to individuals. I have offices in both San Francisco and San Jose.
When working with clients, I try to hold the deeper complexity and the mystery of the psyche and the particular life situation of the client in mind and strive to reach a deeper understanding of the issues which have brought them into therapy. I utilize all my training and clinical experiences over the past 28 years to apply various techniques and blend several approaches to facilitate a deeper understanding and the process of change and transformation.
In providing in-depth psychotherapy or analysis, I use various treatment approaches, which can range from psychodynamic and analytical ways of working, to cognitive-behavioral, relational, archetypal and developmental approaches towards understanding emotional and psychological issues. Treatment can include active imagination, dream work, sand play, guided imagery and other forms of creative art therapy. It can be any or a combination of above methods and include approaches from other schools of psychotherapy, such as self-psychology, cognitive-behavioral therapy, psychoanalysis, and so on. In working with each client, I try to arrive at a deeper understanding of what their needs are which have brought them into therapy and support them in achieving a deeper understanding of themselves and their goal in therapy.
