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.

"Know thyself." Until we know ourselves, we are tossed around by life's events and our circumstances whether work- related, relationships, or families. I believe that you know yourself better than anyone and have the answers in you already. By providing a safe place for you to discuss your thoughts and feelings, I am confident that you will arrive at solutions to your problems freeing you to make choices that lead to creating and accomplishing goals. I provide support, understanding, and a non-judgmental atmosphere where personal growth is not only possible, but can be achieved.

"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.

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.

I see mature adults who are suffering anxiety, and depression , and want a more fulfilling, happy, life.
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.

**Not Accepting New**Many people view mental health in its most extreme form: schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depressive episodes, etc...and while those diagnosis do exist, and may be true for many people, it is also true that many struggle with common day to day problems such as parenting, school, work/life balance, marital stress, grief/loss, etc. I believe in mental wellness just as I do in physical wellness because mental health is the cornerstone of our existence. It helps us feel better, make good decisions and live fulfilling lives. Therefore, I encourage you to pursue wellness in its entirety; mind, body and spirit.

Let's work together to untangle your story, identify your strengths, goals, passions, and barriers; and make you the author of what comes next.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Castro Valley. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
