I love my work.

I am unabashedly optimistic about life. I love my work with clients and clinicians.

Clients–I am so sorry, but I am not taking new weekly clients. I have a limited number of ‘therapy intensives’, 105 minute sessions, in which we work on specific problems using a combination of parts work and/or EMDR. However, these are not right for everyone! I take a careful look at both your history and the things you would like to change. Some therapies are fast–others take longer and cannot be done in the shorter-term ‘therapy intensive’.

Getting Started.

If you decide to pursue a therapy intensive with me, the first thing to do is make time for a short conversation on the phone.  I want to know what you want to work on, and why you’re seeking therapy now.  We both need to find out if I have experience treating your sorts of concerns, and if our schedules will mesh. Therapy intensives are generally scheduled on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Sometimes EMDR is the right treatment for you, and sometimes working with your internal parts is the approach I choose, or some combination of the two. My fee is $200 for 50 minutes, thus $400 for a double session.

The best way to contact me is email.  Please put “therapy intensive” in the subject line, and include your phone number and several good times to call you back.  This will help me get back to you in a timely way.

Location Location Location.

My practice is located in the San Francisco East Bay in the city of El Cerrito, near the Del Norte BART station.  I see clients from Berkeley, El Cerrito, Albany, Oakland, Alameda, San Francisco, and many cities in Marin County as well.  If you are out of my geographic area and you are looking for EMDR, go to EMDRIA.org and search for an EMDR trained therapist by your zip code.
