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 communication issues, stuck relationship patterns, depression, anxiety, trauma, PTSD, OCD, and parenting/co-parenting issues.
Sometimes it takes the gentle mirroring of another person to help see what is no longer working in our lives. Habits formed to survive difficult childhoods may be wrecking havoc. Communication styles may be sabotaging love. We may feel overwhelmed in parenting, or facing a big life transition. I work closely with my clients to increase communication skills and develop greater personal awareness. I teach nervous system regulation in order to stay calm and effective during conflict, difficult conversations, and life transitions. From therapy you’ll learn to operate from wholeness and authenticity, and gain acceptance for self/others.

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.

Life presents us with many opportunities, moments of fulfillment, lack of fulfillment, trauma and/or terrible loss leading to difficulties in emotional intimacy, isolation, panic, resentment, depression - even despair. Our histories and fears mold our choices and can prevent us from achieving a more meaningful fulfilling life. Therapy involves, in part, a journey into the life of buried feelings/beliefs about self and others. Coaching involves emotionally intelligent problem solving. My clients typically consist of professional adults and couples who feel stuck in their lives/relationships. Some are in acute distress, others are unsure of the source/nature of their more chronic difficulties.

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.

When I was younger, I didn’t know how to communicate my feelings and felt frustrated by potential mischaracterization. After I had my first child, I had a difficult time navigating through postpartum depression. I started asking questions and researching mental health while finding virtual support groups. Through this process, I realized that I had s never been alone in my personal issues. When I was pregnant with my second child, I went back to school for social work to become a mental health professional to serve people in my community to help navigate through anxiety, depression, grief, and intergenerational traumas.

Are you feeling frustrated, confused, stressed, depressed, or lost? Living a human life means learning to live with the human condition and the challenges that arise as a result - mortality, relationships, conflict, emotionality, suffering, and change. Therapy can help you adapt and adjust to experiences that can often be challenging and confusing; experiences that you may not always have the skills or insight to address. Therapy is meant to be a safe environment for you to process your experience of life to get emotional support, helpful feedback, and a healing perspective.

We experience a lifetime, on a whirlwind of school, studies, jobs, working towards that feeling of "have to reach there" while forgetting to listen to voices deep within us. Anxiety, Depression, and trauma experiences further cover up the inner wisdom that we all have. Life may have brought you at a moment, where your children are struggling with stress, overwhelm and you may be struggling with professional changes, parenting issues, and relational issues in your marriage. If you are an immigrant, you may struggle managing relationships with family back home and here in this land. I am glad you reached out for help.

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.
