I work with individuals 18 years and older, couples, and other family constellations including polyamorous families. I particularly enjoy working with women, LGBQ folks, and young adults.
Common issues people bring include child abuse, post-traumatic stress, relationships (including open, polyamorous and kinky relationships), depression, anxiety, LGBQ , mid-life, work, and alcohol and other drugs. I also am interested in working with children/ grandchildren of Holocaust survivors, introverts, first responders, rural residents, military brats, academics, highly intelligent people, classical musicians, human service managers, and social justice advocates.
I use a combination of techniques that best meet your needs, including psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, family systems, and solution-focused approaches.
My underlying orientation is looking at the person(s) in environment, which includes a strong social justice commitment. It is important to understand how issues such as lack of access to housing, a poor economy, homophobia, sexism, and racism impact upon what we perceive as our individual or family problems.
I can do therapy over the Internet if you are in California or Florida. If you are on PHP/Beacon Medi-Cal in Sonoma, Marin and some other northern California counties I can now do online therapy.
