About

I am a psychoanalyst and psychologist with over 30 years of clinical experience in a variety of settings. After working at a private counseling center for 4 1/2 years, I opened my private practice in 1984 as a licensed marriage and family therapist. While completing my doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology, I trained at Operation Concern (later known as New Leaf), an outpatient clinic for the LGBT community; Mt. Zion Crisis Clinic, a 24 hour psychiatric emergency clinic, and the Adolescent Inpatient Psychiatry Unit, Langley Porter Psychiatric Institute, University of California, San Francisco. I became licensed as a psychologist in 1991. In addition to private practice, I have worked as an Attending & Consulting Psychologist on the HIV Inpatient Psychiatric Unit at San Francisco General Hospital from 1992 to 1996.

I received my psychoanalytic training at the San Francisco Psychoanalytic Institute (now known as the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis) and graduated in 2002. I am a member and faculty at the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis and currently co-chair the committee for Psychoanalytic Education Outreach.

In addition to my private practice of psychoanalysis, psychotherapy and consultation, I also teach at various training institutions in the SF Bay Area and lecture locally and nationally, and am an Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the University of California, San Francisco. My areas of teaching interests include gay/lesbian and gender issues, sexuality, psychotherapy education, and psychotherapeutic technique.

My Services

I offer psychoanalysis for adults and psychoanalytic psychotherapy for adolescents, adults and couples. I will typically meet with individuals and couples for 1 to 3 consultation sessions to determine the treatment modality and frequency.

Psychoanalysis

Psychoanalysis is an intensive psychotherapy that typically involves 4 to 5 sessions per week. This model of therapy is based on recognition of the centrality of relationships in human development and of the profound influence of our earliest relationships on our present day functioning. Psychoanalysis also understands that our level of self-awareness is always limited and that our behaviors, choices, interests, and conscious beliefs are influenced by beliefs, desires, and fears that we are not aware of.


Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy

Psychoanalytic psychotherapy draws on the same model of human development as psychoanalysis, in a less intensive mode of treatment, typically 1 to 3 sessions per week.


Clinical Consultation & Supervision

I provide consultation to psychotherapists of all levels of experience who are interested in learning more about psychoanalytic approaches to treatment and in deepening their work with patients.

Fees

Individual sessions are 50 minutes and the fee is $170. Couples therapy sessions are 60 minutes and the fee is $190. I offer some flexibility in fees for individuals with 2 or more sessions per week. On occasion, I am able to offer a reduced fee for once weekly sessions for individuals with financial need.
