“Top-level rating for their indispensable service and transformational work. I highly recommend them to anyone who wishes to achieve excellence in themselves and in their work.”


Together, we reshape our lives with insights into and from the lives of others

  • Having been mentored by some of the creators and founders of group therapy, I can impart to you some of the wisdom I have gained across more than 40 years of practicing the art here in Berkeley.

  • My groups are built around carefully selected individual members whose identification with each other increases self–esteem and confidence for all, facilitating trust and the possibility for deep communication.

  • Encouragement from peers plays a large role in the improvement of group members over time. My mature leadership as a group and family therapist will assist you in developing meaningful relationships with your fellow group members. 

  • Anxiety, depression, and loneliness cause undue suffering for many individuals. Becoming a member of one of my therapy groups may prove to be a turning point in your life.
