Stressful encounters, complex life experience, academic stressors and more, can often cause college students, teens, and children to struggle with feelings of anxiety, depression , inadequacy, body image issues, and negative self-talk. In my career as a licensed marriage and family therapist, I have had the opportunity to work closely with clients struggling with these kinds of challenges both at school and at home. My goal as a therapist is to help my clients thrive and flourish by equipping them with the tools and guidance they need to navigate daily stressors, grow their self care, and improve coping skills.

I help people who are struggling with issues including anxiety, depression , relationship problems, substance abuse, feeling stuck, and life transitions. In addition, I am certified to treat trauma- both big, complex trauma and more everyday types of trauma. Either type can result in people feeling disconnected, in pain, and unable to create the life that they want. Many people have self-sabotaging patterns they feel unable to change. I help clients heal and create lasting change.

With over 20 years of almost exclusively working with SF Bay Area teens and their families (and a mother of two teenagers),-I have a solid understanding of the issues adolescents face, the struggles they encounter, and the mental health problems that are so very prevalent for them today. Depression and anxiety are at all all time high for teens and understanding the why isn't always so clear. My clients are facing a myriad of concerns - school refusal, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, substance use, social struggles, disordered eating, behavioral issues, just to name a few. One in thing is common is that they are all hurting,

Perhaps you are overwhelmed with stress and hope to achieve balance, or are dealing with anxiety/ depression and desire improved mood. Maybe you or a loved one is managing a serious health condition and hope to learn of resources. You may be a parent, a teen or young adult experiencing stress or loss of a loved one or a relationship. I believe people are incredibly resilient and capable with the ability to adapt and adjust to all types of challenging circumstances when given the right care and support.

Let’s be honest: you’ve always been a responsible adult, and now you’ve got a lot to manage! Between a demanding career and family needs, you’re feeling stressed, and life feels out of balance. It’s impossible to do it all, and nothing ever seems good enough. You feel alone and worried, and your social network isn’t able to provide you with the support that you need. Perhaps your sleep is problematic, or your energy is low. Maybe you’re feeling anxious, depressed , irritable, or having difficulty concentrating. You might be troubled by feeling that you're an ineffective partner or parent. Things will get better soon, right?

I have experiences with clients ranging from ages 5-92, covering issues from parenting challenges, anxiety, depression , ADHD, suicidal ideation, self-harm, life transitions, trauma, and grief/bereavement.
Sometimes you can sail through your life issues just fine without any professional therapy help. Other times, therapy can help you navigate difficult times, which are inevitable given that life is sometimes unpredictable, odd, and even painful. Therapy can help smooth the bumps in the relationships that you have: both within your own self and with others.
