Each of us has our own story, a lived experience that shapes how we see each other and the world. I want to understand, and help you see more clearly, how that affects you and the issues that caused you to seek therapy. I've helped people work through anxiety, grief, depression, cultural and relational issues, and trauma, among many other types of challenges. Through a client-centered approach, I'll work side by side with you, helping you navigate a path forward that you feel comfortable with.

Sometimes in life we get overwhelmed, feel stuck, and hopeless. Sometimes it can feel as though things keep piling up against us and it can be hard to feel complete. Some people may experience this emotionally, others more physically. Different things trigger these responses in us and make it hard for us to thrive. Whether it is the pandemic, trauma, depression, anxiety, family or relational conflict, self-esteem issues, racial injustice, or grief, having an outlet to make space for this discomfort can help alleviate the pain and move you towards a place of healing.

The decision to begin psychological treatment is very courageous. It is essential to research your provider options and select a psychologist who feels 'right' to you. I have over 25 years of experience working with individuals, couples, families, and groups. I specialize in helping people who want to increase their understanding of self; address areas of thinking, feeling, or behaving that cause pain or confusion; change behavioral patterns that interfere with emotional well-being, interpersonal relationships, and professional performance; and build relationships which are responsible, respectful, effective, and mutually satisfying.

My approach to therapy is a very individual one. Each person begins therapy in a different place and is unique in how they go through their process. While respecting individuality, I will help you identify the problems, explore patterns of behavior and clarify destructive thought patterns. I encourage growth and introspection with my clients; however I will continually respect the pace that you need to develop at. I provide a safe and professional environment as well as a genuine concern for what issues you are addressing. I also provide custody mediation, co-parent counseling, child custody evaluations and parent coordination.

As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I specialize in healing relationships. You may be feeling emotionally disconnected from your loved one right now and wondering "what's happening to us", "we used to spend more time together", "we used to talk more, laugh more". This is a normal feeling --- often times because of life changes (kids, career, relocation, family deaths) your relationship takes a back seat. Over the years, you evolve as an individual, you are not the same person you were when you entered into the relationship.

What type of Foster City 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 Foster City?
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.
