I have been a psychotherapist for adults and adolescents for over 20 years. People come to me to deal with painful feelings and difficulties in living, and to improve their sense of well-being. Many of the clients I see have relationship issues, depression, anxiety or low self-esteem. Living in Silicon Valley brings its own set of problems, which I am particularly interested in. Some people are unclear what troubles them, but are unhappy with their lives.

Stress is at an all-time high. You’re doing your best to keep everything together. But on the inside, you are struggling – you never feel good enough - and no matter how hard you try, the inner critic quickly reminds you of all the ways you’re falling short. Finding balance is nearly impossible. The stress is becoming debilitating. It’s been exhausting. You can’t even remember the last time you were truly happy because being okay with not being okay has become your norm. You’re tired of putting yourself last and doing things for others at the expense of your wellbeing. This is it. You’re done. It’s time for a change.

Hello, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and I am a Certified Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapist with EMDRIA. EMDR accesses the brain's innate ability to overcome the obstacles of past trauma. I understand how past traumas can lend to people feeling "stuck," and can contribute to a great many symptoms and problematic behaviors. I work with people from age five and up, to help overcome challenges, particularly those which are compounded by past traumas. I am ready to help you to learn new tools to overcome your current and past challenges and to move toward future peace and ease.

Therapy is a journey of personal growth and healing. It takes courage and can be challenging, but you don’t have to embark alone. My hope is that, as your therapist, I can be the holder of hope and a source of support. At the root of my work with clients are genuine empathy and human connection. I strive to provide an accepting and safe space for you to express yourself and process what has brought you into therapy.

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Accredited Parenting Coach, and Founder of The Modern Parent. Through my deep healing work with families, I have learned how vital it is to fully understand yourself in order to show up in alignment with whom you want to be. The clients I work with are ready to better understand how their current and past stressors, relationships, and concerns are getting in the way of living life fully and enjoying it. We peel back the layers and story that we have been told about the "problem" or how we view the "problem" and shift this narrative to one that allows us to function in a way we deserve.

I approach psychotherapy from a spiritual perspective and I believe therapy, along with other practices, can help us awaken to a life of meaning. In therapy I will help you identify the source of your longing to be whole, and together, we will move closer to that source, so you become re-sourced. Together we will explore your innate natural cycles and help you align to your own inner rhythm, so that you might meet depletion with rest and energy with creativity.

You just want to get through the day without thinking about the bad, stop overthinking, or feeling overwhelmed. Wondering what it takes to feel motivated again or not feel alone even when you are in a room full of people. Perhaps something is missing in your relationships or feeling you have imposter syndrome in your career. You just want to get through the day without feeling paralyzed or having fear about the future. It may feel so difficult to get back to the excitement you once had.

What type of Palo Alto 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Palo Alto?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
