Specialty training and certifications I hold are in CBT, ACT, DBT and FBT (Family Based Therapy).
I specialize in treating "anything anxiety related" with teens and adults. If I had to use one word to describe what I do, it would be helping people get "unstuck". I am direct, collaborative and at times playful with my clients. I care deeply for my clients and will be there with them every step of the way while they are on their journey. Specialties include generalized anxiety disorder, OCD, panic disorder, trauma, disordered eating and eating disorders. I also work with families with teens that have anxiety and/or eating disorders as well as college students, which I believe is a unique population to work with.

Using dialectical behavior, emotion-focused, cognitive, and solution focused therapies, I work with you step by step to gain perspective, physical abstinence, and emotional balance.
Do you struggle with depression, anxiety, other mental health problems, and/or use drugs, alcohol, or food to manage or get rid of these symptoms? Are any of these problems affecting your job, health, relationships, or even causing legal problems? If the experiences of relief and well being you’ve depended on from substances or compulsive eating are causing these or other problems and you no longer feel in control I welcome your call. There are solutions and you can again, or for the first time, feel like you are being true to yourself and to those who care about what's happening to you. Reaching out for help is essential.

I typically integrate methods from a variety of research-supported therapies including cognitive behavior therapy, dialectical behavior therapy and psychodynamic psychotherapy.
Life's problems can feel much more difficult when faced alone. Perhaps you are struggling with a painful loss, are overwhelmed by fear, anger, loneliness or depression. You may be stuck in patterns of negative, self-critical thinking and inner pressure may cause you to feel tense and exhausted. You may feel shame and hopelessness and your means of coping such as avoidance, procrastination, withdrawal or overeating adds to your distress. I help people struggling with anxiety, panic, depression, phobias, eating issues, and relationship distress to understand these problems and develop skills to feel better and create happier lives.

Dialectical behavior therapy ( DBT ) informs a lot of my work, and so I encourage clients to 'approach' various goals outside of the therapy room.
I specialize in sexual issues and persistent psychogenic pain. Both of these realms entail working through trauma, anxiety, grief, impulsivity, and depression. In sex therapy, I help clients grappling with issues around functioning, sexual shame, sexual trauma, impulsive behaviors, sex and porn "addictions," low and hyper-arousal issues - all from a sex-positive, kink/poly/bdsm-friendly stance. I also help couples navigate challenges in their intimate relationships. With chronic pain and discomfort, I help people change their relationship to the symptoms, which leads to drastic reduction and often elimination of symptoms.

In addition to private practice, I currently serve as clinical faculty at Stanford, working in the Stanford Psychiatry Comprehensive DBT Program and the THRIVE clinic where I work with LGBTQ+ individuals.
Finding the right therapist can be a difficult task. I hope to make that easier by telling you about myself and my approach. I received my doctorate in Counseling Psychology, a branch of psychology that takes into account the role of various cultural and environmental factors that shape each of us. This means that my approach to therapy is individualized and integrates information about your unique circumstances with my training in several different evidence-based treatments. My goal is to provide a safe environment where you can learn new techniques to cope with stress, build a life you value, and process difficult emotions.

I also incorporate EFT, CBT, DBT and other approaches.
I specialize in couples therapy, grief work (death/loss/trauma, end of life) and major life transitions. Additionally, as a bilingual therapist (Mandarin/English), I work with Chinese/Asian/multi-race families to address multigenerational traumas, parenting challenges and cultural differences. My work is informed not only by my trainings in psychotherapy but also by my prior careers in the intensely demanding law/finance/startups sectors which has helped me appreciate the enormous stress and complexity in the work/life dynamics facing many of my clients and their families, sometimes seemingly as a result of their very own success.

I offer evidence-based, effective techniques such as DBT therapy.
Does your life feel confusing? Maybe you’re being pulled in multiple directions, as others expect you to be what they want, instead of who you are. Many people I work with have had difficulties with trauma, anger issues, or anxiety. Others have struggled with impulsivity, transitions, or their sexuality. No matter what you’re going through, things can get better, especially with support. I help people who want to better understand themselves and their struggles, so they can live happier, more peaceful lives. I provide an accepting, non-judgmental environment, where you can relax as you get to know yourself better.

I provide evidence-based therapy such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy ( DBT ), and schema therapy to help clients develop the insights and tools they need to make positive changes.
My style in therapy is to be active, non-judgmental, transparent, and solution-oriented, which is a good fit for clients who are ready to commit to learning new skills and setting concrete goals for change. If you've struggled to connect with therapists who stay too silent, don't share feedback or coping skills, or don't hold you accountable - I may be a good fit to help you on your journey.

I individualize treatment, weaving Relational, Jungian, and Expressive Arts Therapy with CBT, DBT and ACT based on your needs.
I am here to tell you, you are not broken, even if your mind may tell you so. When we are anxious or in despair, we can’t think straight or engage our usual survival strategies. It can impact our health, body, emotions, relationships, perception of self and reality. We can't make sense of the distorted thoughts alone. We need a therapist to help guide us. I often help young women who are feeling shy, anxious, obsessive, depressed, or struggling with life transitions. I enjoy helping girls and women achieve developmentally appropriate social-emotional, verbal and non-verbal communication skills.

Dialectical Behavior (DBT) Therapists
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is the treatment most closely associated with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). Therapists practice DBT in both individual and group sessions. The therapy combines elements of CBT to help with regulating emotion through distress tolerance and mindfulness. The goal of Dialectical Behavior Therapy is to alleviate the intense emotional pain associated with BPD. Its core assumption is that change and acceptance are intertwined. We typically think of our efforts to change things as emerging out of non-acceptance. We either decide to accept things as they are or we seek to change: through DBT it's not a case of change or acceptance, but resolving the conflicts to allow for self-acceptance and constructive change.

If you're looking for DBT therapy in Menlo Park or for a Menlo Park DBT therapist these professionals provide dialectical behavior therapy, DBT group therapy, DBT therapy, dialectic behavioral therapy (which is a common misspelling) and dialectical therapy. They provide dialectical counseling, DBT counseling in Menlo Park and DBT treatment. They include DBT groups, DBT therapists, DBT psychologists and DBT counseling.
