I believe that therapy should be accessible to all and aim to provide a safe, empathic, and comfortable environment that allows an individual to address their mental health needs at their own pace. I have worked in acute medical settings, homeless services, community mental health, and HIV+ case management.
I specialize in working with complex behavior problems related to traumatic experiences in school aged children and their parents/caregivers. We will work together to address behavioral challenges related to Attention Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder, Oppositional Defiance Disorder, anxiety, depression, and trauma related behaviors such as suicidal ideations and self-harm. Together we will develop the skills to improve relationship quality, restore healthy functioning, and maybe even have a little fun in the process.
We’ve all experienced life transitions. Some transitions are smooth and others trigger inner dialogue that lead us to ask ourselves questions like, “Is this really what I’m supposed to be doing? What if I can’t do it? Am I good enough?” Left unanswered and without direction, these questions are enough to make anyone anxious enough to reach for the nearest distraction or depressed enough to give up. This is where I come in.
Dr. Joe exclusively provides psychological testing, at which he has 20+ yrs experience. Testing is a great way to answer questions about what’s going on with a person to guide treatment and document eligibility for services and funding, as well as to demystify mental processes that seem abstract and hard to understand. Testing can clarify diagnoses, give a picture of one’s attentional and emotional state, determine learning and developmental levels, and figure out if an ongoing form of treatment is working. Dr. Joe believes mental health services should be fun and human whenever possible! Special needs can often be accommodated.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California with over six years of experience working in the mental health field. I have experience providing individual, family, and group therapy, in-office and online. My experience has been with children, young adults, and adults experiencing depression, anxiety, PTSD and the effects of trauma, ADHD, Bipolar Disorder, and a wide range of challenges including grief and loss, relationship issues, foster care, abuse, oppositional/defiant behaviors, communication, anger management, family conflicts, self-esteem, as well as personal growth, adjustment issues, and life transitions.
Parents dream of supporting their children as they develop and pursue their dreams. Many times parents can help them with the daily decisions and encourage them to develop habits that will shape their character in order to ready them for their future living these dreams. However, when problematic behaviors or when a learning/cognitive disability poses a threat to shatter future dreams, an expert who understands behaviors and the school environment can be key in providing a path to keep those dreams alive.
I've discovered that seeking therapy is a brave shift towards healing and self-awareness. No one is immune to the trials and tribulations of life. You have the power within you for change and growth...trust yourself. It's important to build trust and rapport between client (you) and therapist (me). I would like to know why and/or how you've come to therapy and what your expectations are (after all, this is your time, at your expense). I'm interested in your life story. I've found honesty and vulnerability lay the foundation to building a new freedom.

My mission is to walk alongside individuals and families as they strive toward connection. I believe that connection comes from finding hope, from authentic communication, and from learning to trust one's self. Humans are wired for connection. Connection leads to lower anxiety and depression, higher trust and empathy, and consequently, higher intimacy. Lack of connection is the source of pain that can cause addiction, infidelity, depression, anxiety, and a host of mental disorders. Connection has even been proven to improve physical symptoms. I can't wait to explore with you and to see what connection can do for your life!
I strongly believe that every human being is worthy and should be living their best life.

There are many forces mitigating against your marriage or relationship We all have vulnerabilities, sensitivities or wounds that are inevitably triggered in intimate long-term relationships. For example, for one person, it may be feeling criticized; for another, it may be not feeling adequately cared for, etc. Those sensibilities emerge and develop from woundings in family relationships with parents, siblings and important others. When triggered, vulnerabilities can at times manifest like allergies; even a small dose can trigger a reaction, a defensive or protective response.
