Some of the treatment approaches I use are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Attachment Theory.
Do you feel your thoughts, emotions, or moods are affecting you, making life more challenging? My areas of focus are working with elevated anxiety and depressive disorders in adults and adolescents. Anxiety: Are you feeling Stressed, Overwhelmed, On-Edge, or Having a hard time relaxing? Depression: Are you feeling Sad, Lethargic, Uninterested in things, or Lonely? I want to create a safe and comfortable space for us to explore and work through the challenges you may be facing. I believe the therapy process is collaborative and it is my intention to partner with you to work towards achieving your goals.

I tend to use solution focus to identify what to work on, motivational interviewing to identify/discover the client's role in a situation, and cognitive behavioral techniques to learn new ways to handle situations.
As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I’ve worked with couples, families, children and adolescents, and groups. While I help my clients address the issue(s) they present when coming into therapy, I also help them learn new skills and ways of interacting with their environment that will help them resolve, and even avoid problem situations in their future. I’ve worked with a wide variety of presenting issues, most frequently involving trauma, anxiety, fear, depression and suicidal ideations, communication problems and difficult relationships, and parenting problems.

Living in the Bay Area is both exhilarating and challenging. With the pressures and responsibilities of time, work, and family, you may encounter challenges to find the balance and much needed support for your emotional wellbeing. Are you experiencing work or relationship stress or have other worries or concerns? You do not have to navigate this alone. Friends and family are usually well meaning and can provide support, but there may be times when it is appropriate to consult a professional who can focus on YOUR needs and find solutions to the challenges you encounter.

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.

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.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists
Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments.

If you're looking for CBT therapy in Foster City or for a Foster City CBT therapist these professionals provide cognitive behavioral therapy, cbt group therapy, cbt therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, cognitive therapy and behavioral therapy. They include CBT therapists, CBT psychologists, CBT psychotherapists and CBT counselors.
