I like to discover with you what your own healthy coping skills are- whether they involve mindfulness practices, creative expression, writing or simply practicing deeper truth-telling, we will work together to find your own inner resources helping you cultivate personal growth and walk through difficult experiences.
In a culture that is fast paced with heavy demands on our time, so many of us do not have safe spaces to reflect, feel, listen and learn about ourselves. This can lead to dis-ease. I believe that providing a warm, judgement free space to discover and untangle some of the thoughts, feelings and experiences that bind us can lead to greater freedom of choice, better health and overall wellness. We all hold the answers to the peace we are looking for.

Working from a more holistic approach to therapy, integrating both somatic and transpersonal facets to our conscious experience of life, I assist clients, through mindfulness , meditation, dreams and expressive arts to access, trust and develop strengths, attributes and resources to cope with anxiety, depression, body dysphoria, pain, grief and loss.
I choose to see life's challenges as invitations to know ourselves more honestly, and to accept ourselves as we are. I believe that when individuals are self-aware they experience life as more meaningful and challenges as less distressing. I help individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, life transitions and relationship issues, to embrace their wholeness and strengthen inner resources not yet recognized. From this place of knowing and alternate or adjusted perspective, individuals develop compassion for self and other, gain confidence in relationships, and feel more assured in their ability to address the challenges life presents.

I believe you are the ultimate expert in this and view my role as a collaborative ally, helping you identify your passions and personal values, and helping you build that path toward living a life worth living with increased acceptance of self and mindfulness -based awareness.
Sometimes having compassion for ourselves is much harder than extending compassion to others. It’s difficult when we are dealing with thoughts that convince us we are broken or stuck, or when we are facing issues that seem larger than us, issues that appear beyond what our personal power can handle. Along with these thoughts of uncertainty come feelings such as anxiety, sadness, shame, and grief, all of which we struggle to avoid. This can make living a valued existence appear difficult or impossible. Yet it is. You don’t need to go it alone. I can see that power within you, even if you are unable to see this in yourself.

I am grounded with tried and true approaches that are evidence-based, such as, Mindfulness , Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Prolonged Exposure for trauma, but I also bring in transpersonal, somatic, creative expression and indigenous healing practices to create balance, harmony and meaning.

I believe each person has the power and ability to heal themselves. And, we could all use some guidance, support, and tools as well as age-old wisdom along the way. If you struggle with anxiety, depression, trauma or want break old patterns that aren't serving you -- to live a life with more meaning, value, and joy, I am happy to be your guide. The journey to healing, balance and connection with your highest self awaits you -- to live more deeply, mindfully and awakened.

I incorporate positive psychology and mindfulness to help clients accept themselves, challenge maladaptive thoughts, authentically connect with those they care about, and slow down and experience the moment.
I specialize in supporting new and expecting families experiencing prenatal/postpartum depression and anxiety, relationship and attachment issues, birth trauma, and loss. The journey into motherhood invites us to experience intense love and joy, but it also touches our most raw and vulnerable parts. We may experience worries of not being good enough or fears of losing our identity. I understand how difficult it can be to take time for yourself when you feel overwhelmed and sleep deprived. But I also know that taking the time now to increase self-awareness can move you beyond survival and transform your experience of motherhood.

Through mindfulness and other tools, we can work together to be fully present; to compassionately explore parts of yourself that may hold limiting beliefs and patterns and shed what is no longer beneficial for you.
Challenging situations can be nudges for you to take time and look inside to recognize them as opportunities to heal, grow, and to make changes needed to break free from feeling stuck, lead a more satisfying life, heal relationships, and bring you back to feeling like yourself again. Whether you're having some 'difficult to feel' or painful emotions, childhood trauma, feeling stuck in a relationship, going through a life transition, or just the uncertainty and stress of the world, therapy can be a wonderful place to begin to take time for yourself.

As a clinician who practices a strength-based approach to assessment, strategies and treatment, I love helping people to re-connect with their own happiness! My clinical expertise is in combining specialized clinical knowledge and skills in the service of resolving anxiety. My unique approach incorporates Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Mindfulness . I find that many people diagnosed with long-standing clinical depression and anxiety are often suffering from the negative impact of self-criticism, relationship discord, past trauma, or achievement fatigue, and that once these are addressed, their symptoms subside.

I believe that everyone can find a way through life’s challenges if they are given understanding, compassion, and support. Therapy isn’t just for life’s challenges, but a place to better understand yourself and help strengthen connections in all types of relationships. We are all unique in what support we need to move forward or heal. That’s why I pull from a variety of modalities and tailor them to each individual or couple. I use a humanistic approach to build strong therapeutic relationships with clients which is an essential component to ensuring the success of treatment.

I also integrate multiple modalities, depending on your individual needs, including EMDR, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, mindfulness based approach and others.
During my time as a therapist, I have worked with children, teens, and their families around trauma, eating disorders, depression, and anxiety. In my experience, many people come into therapy wanting to work on a specific goal, while others simply want to "feel better" without understanding just how a therapist is supposed to help. During our initial consultation, I'll ask you about your objectives, and challenges; following that, I'll provide a general idea of how I might use my training, skills, and experience, to help you move forward in the best way possible.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients in Los Gatos with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice.
