Welcome difficulty.

Learn the alchemy True
  Human Beings know:

the moment you accept
  what troubles

you’ve been given, the
  door opens...

...underneath is the
  sweetness that comes

after grief.

Marriage and Family Therapy
As a marriage and family therapist in the California Bay Area  for more than 20 years, I strive to create a safe, supportive environment for individuals, couples and families to work through personal issues. My goal is to help you:


To connect more authentically to self and others


To live with more openness and experience the beauty and wonder of life


To learn how to listen and accept the reality of what is


To feel freer and less encumbered by fear
