"There is no one to one correlation between the amount of quantifiable wounding that someone experienced and what they are capable of."
– Diane Zimberoff
I’m a licensed psychotherapist in the Bay Area, passionate about providing powerful therapy to facilitate lasting change for adults, teens, children, couples, and families.
My work with clients goes well beyond traditional “talk therapy” such as having speciliaties in EMDR, hypnotherapy, NLP, etc., which supports my unique ability to quickly “get” people in both the patterns in their distress and who they really know themselves to be.
I bring more than 15 years of clinical experience with extensive training in a range of therapeutic methods, from foundational psychology to more cutting-edge, holistic approaches toward facilitating transformative life changes for clients.
My work honors the importance of therapies based on the heart, body, mind and spirit connection, which gets you out of your head and into your heart and body to encourage and instill deep and lasting change.
My passion is to empower clients to stop reliving the relationships and experiences that no longer serve them so they can realize their true potential – at work, within their communities, and in their personal and family lives.

When it comes to relationships with others — whether it be a loved one, co-worker or friend — almost all of us fall into a place where we feel innocent and find fault, or blame, others. In many ways, this is a natural way of taking care of ourselves, but it’s not the healthiest approach to building sustaining relationships. Our tendency to protect gets in the way of connection.
I help clients slow down this process so they can understand what’s going on for them. Clients are able to gently apply the brakes and advocate for what they really want in the relationship while addressing their tension levels and ability to deal productively with conflicts.
I can can quickly guide clients to a new perspective about themselves by uncovering their strengths, defenses, inner conflicts, and underlying emotional pain. Meanwhile, clients gain an understanding of what’s driving their behavior, why they “feel badly” about themselves.
Ultimately, they find the pathway to a place from where they can grow: the place where we feel and act in a way where our lives are productive, connected, and content.
