Are you facing any of these difficulties in your daily life?
  • Anxiety:  Panic attacks. Chronic worrying and tension.  Overly self critical.
  •  Depression or sadness
  • A pervasive feeling of helplessness and loss of hope
  • Problems with losing control of your anger or with the anger of others                                          Look at my reviews!
  • Problems with sleeping: insomnia or waking up frequently
  • Unresolved traumas or emotional difficulties from your past
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Difficulties dealing with parents or your children
  • Grief over the loss of a loved one
  • Stress        

Some of these problems are internal to you such as anxiety and some external such as relationship issues, but they all have the characteristic of being stressful or painful.  I am a clinical psychologist with 43 years of experience helping people in similar situations.  The problems listed above are human problems that we all face from time to time.  I am able to help most with a down to earth practical approach that is well grounded in the evidence of what works.  You can feel safe knowing that your personal issues are being handled in a sensitive and professional manner.
I accept Medicare, Medi-Cal (Beacon) and Aetna insurance plans.  If you have an out-of-network insurance plan, I provide you with a completed claim form that can be mailed immediately to your insurance company for reimbursement.  I have a discount schedule for those who pay out of pocket.  For more information about fees and insurance click here.

I can usually set you up with an appointment within 2 days from when you call.  Appointments are available Monday in Pinole, CA and Tuesday or Wednesday in Berkeley, CA from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.  You can schedule an online appointment to begin therapy right away or you can schedule a free half-hour telephone consultation at a time that is convenient for you.  This makes it easy to talk with one another without playing phone tag.  Or give me a call at 510 883-4656 to discuss any questions you might have. 


The services I offer include individual psychotherapy, couple's counseling, and wellness coaching.  Many prefer a coaching relationship which enables us to many or all of our sessions online.  I do online counseling via Skype and have found it very effective.
