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.

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 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.

Emotional healing occurs most readily in the context of a safe relationship that is simultaneously supportive, responsive and empathic, but that also challenges you to venture outside of your comfort zone. My therapeutic approach is client-centered, partnering with you in your individuality to help you reconnect with your own inner strength and wisdom. I can help you to make connections between your past experiences and present circumstances in order to better understand yourself, enabling you to make changes that translate into a more vibrant and fulfilling life.

I like to write about human psychology and continue to read and self-educate extensively.

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.
