How Can I Help?

I help people with a variety of problems using cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT or CT). My treatment combines an evidence-based therapy tailored to your specific problems with a compassionate, personal and caring approach.  A brief no cost 10-15 minute telehealth consultation will help determine if I am the right person to help you.  Please call me at 415 297 1016 or email me at

Currently, I am providing therapy both in person and by video using a professional HIPAA compliant version of Zoom.  If you're ready to schedule an appointment with me, visit this page:

My Approach to CBT

I am a Beck Institute trained cognitive therapist credentialed as a Beck Institute CBT Certified Clinician.

I use CBT to help people with problems including depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia spectrum disorders, PTSD, OCD and other 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 individual problems.  I don't use 'cookbook' or manualized approaches to treatment.

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 scientific research in randomized clinical trials, the gold standard for testing the effectiveness of therapy.
