Individual Psychotherapy & Couples Therapy in Tiburon, CA
I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist with a background in fine art photography and philosophy. I came to the work of psychotherapy in the process of my own journey of recovery, self-discovery and transformation. I have a deep respect for the unknowable, the great mystery, that aspect of the human condition where something is always left out, just beyond grasp of reason. That leaves me curious to know more about your experience and the unique landscape of your own inner world.
I completed the requisite 2000 hours of clinical training needed to obtain my license to practice psychotherapy in California at the following institutions: Alta Mira Recovery Programs, Sausalito; Ohlhoff Recovery Programs, San Francisco; San Francisco Art Institute; Haight Ashbury Psychological Services, San Francisco; Paradigm Treatment, San Rafael; New Perspectives Center for Counseling, San Francisco. Each of these formative experiences contributed to a growing expertise in trauma-informed treatment for highly sensitive people from all walks of life.
I am a graduate of the Master of Arts program in Integral Counseling Psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco. I also hold a Master of Fine Art degree in Photography from Bard College and a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from Vassar College. I bring my creative spirit and intellectual curiosity to a psychodynamic approach to clinical psychology that seeks the underlying causes of your condition.
Within the broad framework of depth psychology, I utilize a variety of interventions according to my client's needs and natural inclinations including guided imagery, analysis, dream interpretation, mindfulness based somatic experiencing and dialectical behavioral therapy. My approach is relational, trauma informed and strength based. I bring an expertise in the areas of addiction and recovery to my work.
A lifelong learner, I am currently pursuing analytic training in the Jungian oriented psychotherapy program at the C.G. Jung Institute of San Francisco.
I work with artists, creators, writers and thinkers; highly sensitive people who are deeply affected by the world and whose sensitivities are both their greatest asset and most daunting challenge. Wherever you find yourself in the infinitely varied spectrum of culture, gender, race, sex and religious identity, you are welcome here with me. It is my privilege to join you on this journey. I am here to help you see that everything is possible.
Join me for therapy in person in my Tiburon office or online for California residents everywhere.
