The focus is you. People who are experiencing anxiety, depression, grief, and loss sometimes forget that they matter. Other things become more important. When we work together, the most important person is you. We work on getting you better emotionally, physically and spiritually. Then you can heal and have a more balanced life. My clients tell me they appreciate how I get them unstuck in difficult times. They find hope and get energized about their life. I work well with cultural, biracial, multiracial and faith based situations. I have helped many individuals, couples, families and children achieve their goals.

One of the amazing aspects of therapy is that it provides a unique opportunity for people to have a space where the focus is on their needs and growth. Very few other spaces exist where your needs and well-being can be the priority. This is a key part of the healing power of therapy, which is why I believe it is so important you find a therapist who is a good fit for you. COVID-19: Telehealth sessions by secure video or phone; and In-Person sessions in Castro Valley (Th/Fri) or Hayward (Mon) (following Alameda County guidelines). (In-Network with AETNA, OPTUM & CIGNA through Alma).

I’ve enjoyed working as a psychologist for over 20 years and my clients teach me a great deal as they trust me with their therapeutic process. The vulnerability and confidence they share with me is a privilege and a gift, as well as a deep responsibility. I realize that making the decision to see a therapist is often a long and challenging one. It’s scary to ask for help and my goal is to help you feel as safe as possible, while working through the concerns that you need assistance with. I provide HIPPA Compliant Video sessions for all clients, so you can have therapy sessions from the comfort and privacy of your home or office

Dealing with depression, anxiety or stress can be overwhelming — it isn’t easy to do. Every one experiences “ups and downs” in life but some “downs” can be more problematic than others. Let me help you. I offer compassionate and honest help for: repetitive relationship problems, difficult with emotional intimacy or closeness, problems at work or school, periods of marked depression or anxiety, over-consumption of alcohol or drugs, compulsive or addictive use of a computer, phone, tv, shopping, food, exercise, work or obsessive thinking and vulnerability to self injurious or self-sabotaging behaviors.

I provide individual, couples, and family therapy. I work with families with both teenage (ages 15+) and adult children. When working with teens, I take a family therapy approach and involve both the adolescent and the parents. With individuals, I work with adults on issues such as anxiety, past trauma, stress, relationship issues, boundary setting, assertiveness, self-criticism, and overall enhancement of their wellbeing, happiness, and life satisfaction. With couples, I primarily utilize Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy but also pull from other couples therapy modalities such as Gottman.

My primary experience is working with children and adolescents and their families in coping with life's stressors, more significant mental health symptoms, and developing more effective coping styles and communication patterns. In treatment, it is my goal to work alongside your child and you to find resources and coping skills to handle overwhelming experiences which are impacting you and your child's functioning. My dog Sammy, a therapy dog, is present during most sessions and can help support children suffering from anxiety around coming to therapy and providing a safe place to process difficult emotions.

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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
