Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Jack is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with experience and training in psychodynamic and psychoanalytic psychotherapy. He holds a Masters of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology from California Institute of Integral Studies, and a Masters of Arts in Sociology from Humboldt State University. He is actively involved in coursework with the S.F. Bay Area Lacanian School for Psychoanalysis, and is a member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists and the Foundation of California Psychoanalysis.

Psychodynamic and psychoanalytically oriented interventions may be useful in treating a wide variety of issues, including but not limited to, anxiety, depression, body image concerns, gender dysphoria, psychosomatic difficulties, traumas, and relationship problems. The symptoms that bring a person to treatment guide a process of exploration. This is done through the practice of free association, which invites the patient to speak freely and openly, without judgment or criticism. Within a safe and confidential space, therapist and patient endeavor to hear what the symptom might be signaling or saying, in order to uncover the roots of an apparent problem. It takes courage to listen and look deeply into troubling thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. However, through this process, a clearer sense of oneself, ones needs and desire may begin to emerge, along with new possibilities and perspectives on transformation and change.
