My office is designed to meet the needs of both children and adults, and is located in Hayward near the 880 freeway.
Effective psychotherapy enables clients to take control of their own feelings and behavior by gently uncovering the connections between past experiences and current difficulties. Positive change occurs in an atmosphere of responsibility and hope, and a respectful, dedicated therapist can effectively guide this process. I integrate straightforward communication and empathy in the context of steady, clear boundaries. Our interactions will be active and enthusiastic. Psychological services include psychodynamic therapy, play therapy, and family court related interventions.

I work with children , adolescents, and adults from many walks of life.
Hello and welcome! I'm so glad you are here. I know looking for a therapist can be a daunting process and I applaud your determination to find the right fit for you. The reality is that none of us have it all figured out and can probably benefit from support to help navigate through life's challenges. Whether you are experiencing specific stressors, life transitions, complex trauma, anxiety, relational difficulties, or you are looking to cultivate a better relationship to yourself, I will provide you with a non-judgmental therapeutic space to support your empowerment process and help you to grow a greater understanding of yourself.

I have worked with a wide array of children , adults, and families from diverse cultures and backgrounds, in a way that was most supportive to them.
My job is to work myself out of a job. I work with youth, adults, and families through decision making and strengthening life skills, by emphasizing relationships and making laughter a priority.​ I hold a relational lens in my practice, focused on not only your relationship with others, but also on your relationship with yourself. The key to therapeutic services, and relationships in general, is to make sure that there is a level of trust and comfort for the client to build rapport and explore experiences without feeling shame or judgement.

Experience with children (6+), teens, emergiadults, seniors and Highly Sensitive Persons (HSPs).
One of the amazing aspects of therapy is that it provides a unique opportunity for people to have a space where the focus is on their needs and growth. Very few other spaces exist where your needs and well-being can be the priority. This is a key part of the healing power of therapy, which is why I believe it is so important you find a therapist who is a good fit for you.

I function in many roles within the Family Court system as a child custody evaluator, reconnection therapist and co-parent counselor.
Are you living a life of "quiet desperation"? Get to the bottom of your problems by connecting with yourself. Psychotherapy can help identify and overcome blocks that prevent you from being your real self. Are you repeating patterns from childhood despite your best efforts not to? Those patterns were likely formed early in childhood as a survival mechanism and now that you no longer need those patterns, they feel like a prison. Psychotherapy provides the key that opens the door. If you are afraid that you cannot do this, please do not sell yourself short and give yourself a chance.

Whether a partner, spouse, child , sibling, parent, boss, friend, lover, hobby or even yourself, what happened? Feel like you lost the magic? Wonder how that person who used to be the most fantastic person in the whole world turned out to be such a source of pain for you?.
What happened? Where did we go wrong? It used to be so different. Why does it seem so hard dealing with the people you should feel closest to? Confused about what you are doing? Don't know what it is you really want to do? Ever reacted to a situation in a way that surprised yourself? Ever thought to yourself, "That wasn't me"? Ever get angry when you don't want to? Feel depressed when you absolutely HATE feeling that way? Have people in your life you used to love and now you just don't get at all?

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.

"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.

Each person is unique, therefore so are their concerns. I approach therapy based on the individuality of each adult, teen, and child , and their personal needs. Assisting you in working though thought patterns and feelings that are causing you distress is my goal. Being the parent of a tween/teen, you might find yourself looking for answers to questions that allude you. Often there are issues you would like to have a better understanding of, or a way to process them. I will assist you in finding the tools needed for you or your child to live a less stressful and more fulfilling life.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist with many years of experience working with children , adolescents, and their families, as well as adults. My interventions are heavily rooted in behavioral therapy and evidence-based practices including feminist and attachment theories. However, I tend to conceptualize clinical presentations from a multicultural and social justice perspective. While I employ empirically validated treatments to ignite change, I am also of the belief that there is no single story to any individual. Consequently, it is important to understand the social, cultural, political, and spiritual context of each individual.

My greatest passion is bringing healing to people who have been through traumatic/stressful experiences. I have helped clients that includes children , adults and families to help them find that health perception of themselves and strength in their relationships. I know that there's no single approach that is right to resolve past experience and it is different for every individual. My approach is listening to my clients needs and helping them find peace, complete, whole and safe. So what is an ideal client? That is hard to say as every client is unique with their needs and ways to approach them are always different.

What type of Hayward 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 Hayward?
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.
