In order to address your suffering it's necessary to become aware of and understand the obstacles and patterns that perpetuate that suffering. You may have achieved significant success, yet struggle with a pervasive sense of dissatisfaction or even emptiness. Depression and anxiety may keep you from living your life fully, and in spite of your efforts, you struggle in your personal and professional relationships. You are not alone in lacking a clear understanding of the sources of your suffering and difficulties. Becoming curious about these experiences with me can help you to begin understanding the ways that you relate to yourself and others, and how these patterns get in your way. This can lead to developing the strength and flexibility to make changes and live your life differently.
In our work together I'll focus on your thoughts & feelings, and I'll respect the strengths that you bring. I'll attend to those parts of yourself about which you may not be aware, sharing my observations so that you can develop your own understanding and awareness of those barriers and patterns that determine so much in your day-to-day life.
We will meet at least once weekly in 50-minute sessions to provide consistency in your treatment and an opportunity to explore and understand your experiences in depth. My San Francisco Financial District office is very easily accessible by public transportation (MUNI & BART) and by car (several parking garages in the area).
I offer a complimentary 15 minute phone consultation to determine if we are a good match to embark on this important work together. Please call me to schedule a phone consultation at 510-496-6066.
