Welcome! I am a licensed psychologist and independent educational consultant working in the San Francisco Bay Area to help individuals, couples, and families manage life's challenges and transitions, improve overall happiness, and undo mental and emotional stress.

I specialize in treating anxiety, depression, and relationship and family issues, as well as helping people move towards their valued goals with a coaching and positive psychology approach.

I approachtherapeutic and college educational consulting from a comprehensive clinical and case-management perspective. I work with parents and students to find the best treatment options when home-based interventions have failed, when people are transitioning back home from residential and/or wilderness treatment, and when applying to colleges and universities.

I offer psychotherapy, educational consulting,  and coaching in an effective and direct,  compassionate manner that helps you learn the skills and habits live according to your goals and values.
