I am a clinical psychologist based in the San Francisco Bay/East Bay area. My practice includes psychotherapy and evaluation for couples and adults. I am also available for teaching, training, consultation, and supervision in a wide array of settings. I have two locations, one in the heart of Castro Valley, near BART, and one in San Ramon right off the 680 freeway. I take Cigna Insurance only, however your insurance policy may have "Out of network" benefits, which would provide some reimbursement for therapists that don't take your insurance.

I specialize in working with individuals and couples struggling with anxiety, anger, stress and trauma.
Does it seem like you are often on edge, irritable, angry, or anxious? Do people complain that you are isolated, a workaholic, drink too much, are shut down emotionally? Is it difficult to get motivated to do anything? Maybe you are haunted by a horrific incident that happened to you. Perhaps you are struggling with a significant loss. Often the people we care about the most take the brunt of our anger, irritability and anxiety. This can lead to strained or conflicted relationships with a spouse , other family members, co-workers or friends and may result in significant negative consequences to a marriage and career.

I offer sessions for couples , families, and individuals including children, teens, and adults.
There are times in our life when difficulties lead to thoughts and feelings inside of us that we are uncomfortable with. Ignoring those feelings doesn’t exactly make them go away often leaving us frustrated and feeling stuck. So what can you do? Well, I can tell you that counseling is a helpful way to find relief and healing for those struggling with mental and emotional suffering, relationship conflicts, daily stress, and unhealthy behavior patterns.

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.

"I did then what I knew how to do. Now that I know better, I do better." -Maya Angelou. Therapy is a collaborative and supportive journey where we will work together to help you learn practical skills and tools, and to help you to view yourself and others in a more accurate and nonjudgmental light. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) interventions to address thoughts or behaviors that may be negatively impacting your emotions and relationships, and/or getting in the way of achieving your goals.

I work with couples and adult individuals with relationship issues, depression, anxiety, and life transition issues.
Therapy is about change. What I enjoy most about my work is witnessing people make real changes in their lives and relationships. Many people have habitual ways of thinking, acting and interacting that do not lead to the outcomes they hope for in life. I see my role as therapist as one of helping people become more aware of the choices they make that do or don't work for them. Through better self understanding, people are able to change internal or relational habits and achieve greater satisfaction in relationships and in life in general.

Self awareness and connection can heal. My practice is a place where we can build safety and vulnerability, and work together to help you better understand yourself. Therapy is not always easy, but here you can regain a sense of control and create momentum.

Do you feel weary of the constant parade of "failed" relationships that show up in your life? Would you like to discover the secret to attracting and keeping a healthy committed relationship? If you answered "yes" to these questions, you have come to the right place. I have 25 years of experience in helping people just like you to understand how the patterns of unhealthy relationships are laid down very early in life. Relationships are like a "dance" in which each partner performs their "steps". Becoming aware of your "steps" means you can change them, and reap amazing rewards.

I believe successful therapy relies on the professional therapist's core knowledge and listening skills. Both are needed to pay depth of attention to your perspective with a caring therapeutic ear. I listen well, draw from theory and practical experience to understand what my client is experiencing. I also consider what social pressures or situations impact your thinking/emotional states and what therapeutic approach might be most helpful. I take into account the client's unique human diversity, level of personal development, consciousness and, if applicable, spirituality. Together, we select the most desired and achievable goals as the therapeutic focus of our time together.

What type of Castro Valley 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Castro Valley?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
