The last 15 years I have worked extensively with individuals struggling with many forms of trauma and substance use disorders - as well as the resulting relational, emotional and physical disconnections.
We all need a safe place to unpack stress and explore unhealthy patterns in order to create the meaningful changes we want in our lives. I encourage clients to approach therapy with an open and curious mind. For my part, you can expect compassion, collaboration and an unwavering authenticity in each session - with a healthy dose of humor when welcomed.

I specialize in psychological assessments and psychotherapy for adolescents and adults. Assessments are often conducted to assess for ADHD, autism, learning disorders, cognitive problems, and psychiatric disorders. I use an evidence based approach to assessment and provides treatment recommendations that make the evaluation meaningful to each individual. I also have extensive experience working with individuals struggling with substance use and mental health problems. I explore underlying reasons for the development of these psychiatric problems and provide treatment that focuses both on reducing use and living a life worth living.

Therapy means many different things to different people. For some it is a journey of growth, self-awareness, and healing. For others it is necessary for them to survive. For some it is something they are mandated to do, and for many it is something they really want to do. No matter where you fall on this spectrum, I am here to support you through your process. Therapy is about where you are, where you want to go, what you want to explore, and joining you on your experience. I am here to listen, to guide you, focus you, support you and push you when needed.

Making the decision to see a therapist is not an easy one, and it often takes a fair amount of courage to do so. For those who decide that therapy is appropriate, the outcome can be positive, bringing them more intimacy and fulfillment. Therapy provides the opportunity to improve communication, reduce stress, anxiety and anger, and improve the most important relationship we have....the one we have with ourselves.

Psychotherapy is a sacred process where you trust the therapist and make a pact to enter a private world of pain. You're visiting this site and seeking help: I admire that you're acknowledging your needs-this reflects your strength and commitment to yourself. Rather than avoiding, you're confronting stuff--it takes extraordinary courage. We are born resilient, and though we might feel deflated, life cannot knock this resilience out of us. With your resourcefulness, you're looking for a therapist . . . you're reading this sentence, and you're taking the first step . . . congratulations!

I am a licensed bilingual, bicultural therapist who has been working in the mental health field for over 16 years. I enjoy working with the person who is ready to take that first step to make change. I support them by promoting a safe space in order to begin the therapeutic work. I normally work with individuals and families with multiple siblings. Recently I have been working with couples coming to address relationship challenges: intimacy and infidelity, finances, gambling and addictions, co-parenting and blended families, domestic violence and child abuse, as well as other relationship challenges.

*Virtual Sessions Available* Does your kid or teenager often say NO, I DON’T CARE, or YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND. You see them struggling with anxiety and depression, or risky behaviors such as using drugs, and don’t know what to do. You might also have gifted children or teenagers who are struggling with perfectionism-obsession-procrastination (POP). Are you high functioning and having a stable job but yet have symptoms, feelings, and behaviors that are difficult to explain in the context of your life experiences? Are you often in a relational pattern where you do things out of fear, obligation, and guilt (FOG)?

We can all have periods of loneliness in our lives where the path forward appears hidden and our relationships create feelings of uncertainty or confusion. You might find yourself in more arguments, or becoming more critical of yourself, while you are unsure as to why the arguments began or why the self-criticism continues. For some: patience, tolerance and forgiveness are gifts easily shared with others but are nearly unthinkable when engaging with yourself. Maybe, you are simply wishing things “Could just go back to the way they were before” or “Just be easier”.

If you're struggling with feeling stuck from depression, paralyzed because of anxiety and/or experiencing issues with sleep, mood, relationships then I am here for you. It's an incredibly fascinating time to be alive with all we have experienced in recent years (COVID, isolation, mandates etc) and these novel times bring novel feelings that may be hard to sort out and often can result in more suffering if not addressed. Come to my practice if you're ready for change, motivated for life to look different and willing to do the work. I look forward to collaborating with you.

“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” —Viktor Frankl. Suffering comes in many forms. Mainly, I believe it comes from how we relate to ourselves and to others. I hope to help you develop tools and insight to manage challenges and stressors to help you learn how to suffer less. My goal is to get to know the essence of who you are and understand how your life and experiences have brought you to this moment.

I conduct child and family therapy, dyadic therapy for young children, and individual therapy for adults.

What type of Burlingame mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Burlingame?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
