Your Hope for Change

Making that first call to a therapist is an expression of hope–the hope for change. My primary focus with clients is to build on what is working in their lives, while offering tools and support to change what isn’t.

EMDR Therapy in Oakland 94611 Helps you Live Life to the Fullest

In my years of practice, I have seen truly remarkable transformations. Since 1992, I have incorporated EMDR Therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing) into my work, and I have found it to be very effective with many clients. EMDR is a holistic process that provides a healing path through trauma, stuck behavior patterns, and self-limiting beliefs. This approach encourages self-empowerment, deeper connection with self and others, and the ability to live life to its fullest. I am excited and inspired by my clients and feel privileged to be part of their journey.

In addition to my expertise in EMDR Therapy, I have training and experience in cognitive behavior therapy, existential humanistic therapy, couple therapy, chemical dependency, and twelve-step work. By providing tools to help manage stress, anxiety, depression, and unwanted thoughts and behaviors, I assist clients in making changes that support their vision of success. Together, my clients and I decide which approaches best fit their goals.

Tap into Your Strengths

Psychotherapy can empower people to lead more satisfying, joyful lives. In my practice, I help clients tap into their strengths, their capacity to change while encouraging them to value and stay true to who they are.

A recent addition to my practice is a therapy dog.   I was inspired by research about the benefits that 5 minutes with a trained animal can bring. Ozzie is a friendly golden retriever /poodle mix, who greets clients, “shakes hands” and quietly relaxes while I work with clients. Petting and playing with Oz for a few moments is a great stress reducer for many clients. Ozzie’s presence in the therapy room is totally up to the client.
