How Can I Help?
I help people using cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT or CT) - a type of therapy based on science and research - in a compassionate, personal and caring manner. A brief telephone consultation will help determine if I am the right person to help you. There is no charge for this initial consultation. Please call me at the number listed at the bottom of this page.
If you are having an emergency, call 911 or the
24-hour Marin County Crisis Line at (415) 499-1100
My Approach to CBT
I help people with problems including depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and anxiety disorders. I see adults, older adults, adolescents (ages 15+) and their families.
Collaborative: CBT is a collaborative, problem solving therapy that emphasizes practical solutions and taking steps toward important life goals.
Individualized: Therapy is specifically tailored to address your problems.
Problem and Goal Focused: We will work together to identify the main problems and set therapy goals to help you take small steps towards changing problematic thinking and behavior patterns.
Recovery-Oriented: I take a recovery-oriented approach that emphasizes the whole person and the value of returning to meaningful activities in your life even if you are feeling quite ill (depressed, anxious, or confused).
Effective and Evidence-based: CBT has been demonstrated to be effective for a wide range of disorders based on empirical evidence including scientific research in randomized clinical trials, the gold standard for testing the effectiveness of therapy.
