About Me

 Dorothy KaufmannI am an older therapist engaged in my second career. In my previous life in higher education (PhD, Columbia University), I taught and wrote in the humanities, which I see as informing my present vocation. 

 I grew up in Queens, New York in a family of refugees, a childhood that left me with empathy  for those who feel they are outsiders. 

In my therapy life, I have worked at the Pacific Center for LGBT individuals and couples; at a recovery center for men coping with addiction; at a pre-school, with young children and their parents; and at the Women's Therapy Center, which focuses on relational therapy. 

Having struggled in my own life with the challenge of many transitions, some imposed and some chosen, I am passionate about helping you with yours. 

I am presently in private practice in Oakland, California, where I see individuals and couples.
