All groups are meeting in Zoom during COVID-19 lockdown

These Groups Are Currently Open and Accept Referrals from Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Family Therapists & Other Mental Health Clinicians

  • 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.

We focus on dream work and family of origin exploration which allows you to practice various techniques of group and family psychotherapy, including Gestalt, Psychodrama, Redecision Therapy, Group Analysis, and Family Reconstruction.

Tuesday 5:00-6:30 PM

An on-going group for seasoned professionals dedicated to personal growth, developing meaningful relationships as we mature, and living creatively. Come join us as we explore together what is called “a return to an informed naivete”, an attitude that combines the freshness and exhilaration of discovery­­­­ with the mature capacity ­for reverie and judgment. With this insight, we’ll look anew at the work we do and how it fits with who we are now.
