Added Training: Trauma Focused -CBT, DBT, ERP, ACT, grief, loss, burnout, and attachment.
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. COVID-19: Telehealth sessions by secure video or phone; and In-Person sessions in Castro Valley (Th/Fri) or Hayward (Mon) (following Alameda County guidelines). (In-Network with AETNA, OPTUM & CIGNA through Alma).

I believe that the therapeutic relationship should be a collaborative one. Together, we will work on the issues that may be holding you back from living a more fulfilling life. I use a compassionate, empathetic, and nonjudgmental approach in which I seek to understand you and your life experiences. My graduate school training in art therapy confirmed my belief in the healing power of creativity. I work at Advances and Breakthroughs in Mental Health with offices in Long Beach and Huntington Beach. Please call the office to set up an appointment.

We all have challenges in life, and it takes courage and support to make the changes you strive for.

As a result, I know that by working with support, you can have the full life that you so readily deserve. As a therapist, I am someone who will work with you to build healthier ways to manage your emotions, incorporate coping skills during times of challenge, and to learn acceptance and self-compassion. Resulting in the person you want to be.

Do you ever feel like you give so much of yourself to love and help others but they don't love you back in the same way? Are you burnt out and exhausted from feeling like people around you take advantage of how you jump all in, in loving them? Do you feel resentful of these relationships? Perhaps you feel like if you don't love them the extra 9 miles, then they won't love you at all or that they will leave you. Sometimes this causes us anxiety and feelings of depression that paralyzes us to live life.

Your emotions and inner critic run your life. You crave a deep sense of peace, a break from the past, and a longing to be more grounded and excited for your future.

My goal is to help you look at yourself and your pain differently, in a way that will create hope for you and help you to reach your goals and your "best self."

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.
