Living in Silicon Valley is hard, the pressure and stress are unlike anywhere else. Sometimes the anxiety feels so overwhelming, it cripples your self esteem and robs you of your day to day happiness. It doesn't have to be like this. You can feel more at ease, happier and less irritable.

Our life experiences can lead us to question our identity and purpose in the world we live in. This can lead us to anxiety , depression, and trauma. Do you want to improve how you face challenges, function in your relationships, and face overwhelming feelings? I place heavy importance on addressing trauma. Trauma disintegrates the parts that make up your whole self, which can leave aspects of who you are hidden from your awareness. Left unaddressed, anxiety and depression can worsen, which can rob you of the necessary connection that all human beings need to thrive. I aim to help you process unresolved trauma.

Anxiety , depression, stress, loneliness, difficulties in school/work/family and relationships, feeling "not enough"....being a human is really hard. People aren’t weak, damaged, or broken for struggling with life and seeking therapy. You are brave, strong, courageous, curious, insightful, inspirational, proactive and worthy of support. Therapy gives you a chance to explore who you are and learn to identify what you feel really proud of. We can identify what things aren’t working well for you and what you can do about those to improve how you feel on a daily basis and about life overall.

I work with young children and adolescents struggling with anxiety and depression.
My ideal client is a child or adolescent who is aware of the issues that are bothering them and want help. These are clients whose parents are comfortable with them seeing a therapist and are able to speak openly with them about their diagnoses. When I am asked how long I see a client, I do not give a definite time since I have learned that issues are challenged as they make the transition to new schools or jobs. I let parents know that I take a developmental approach to psychopathology. We may stop when symptoms decrease and their coping capacity increases. If they return it is not a sign of failure but different stresses.

I provide psychotherapy for individuals (children, adolescents, and adults), couples and families. I help individuals who are experiencing difficulties with anxiety , mood, problems with relationships, and various addictions. I work from a client-centered perspective that is both integrative, collaborative, and recovery-based (i.e., incorporates client's strengths as opposed to solely focusing on negatives or pathology). As such, I am able to draw upon my expertise in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical-Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Couples and Family Therapy to flexibly design treatment to meet the specific needs of my clients.

I have worked with sexual assault survivors, trauma, depression, stress and anxiety , with different modalities.
This-is-important! It won’t go away when you turn your back. It won’t sort itself out while you distract yourself with other things. You may well need a hand in resolving things but only YOU can take the first step and ask for that help, which we are all PERFECTLY allowed to need sometimes. Resilience isn’t about never being angry, sad, fearful or guilty. It is about knowing how to respond appropriately.

I specialize in trauma therapy along with treating personality disorders, depression, mood disorders, anxiety , and addiction. All these disorders can look different from person to person, and that is where our therapeutic journey of empowerment and self-exploration begins. I concentrate on creating a safe space of growth and self-discovery through unconditional positive regard, emotional regulation, and guided activities.

My goal throughout treatment is to work for and with you, to empower you, and to be an active listener when it feels like everything is against you. I have worked with teens in schools, treatment centers, and private practice to provide understanding support, and care during many individuals’ hardest human experiences. Through the use of cognitive-behavioral techniques, I have seen clients increase self-esteem, increase functionality, and decrease their sadness and anxiety . I use a client-centered therapy approach because I want my clients to feel validated in their unique circumstances and hardships.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.

If you're looking for a Palo Alto anxiety therapist, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counseling in Palo Alto.
