I have worked extensively with youth and families in the areas of anger management, anxiety, depression, family/peer conflict, grief and loss, life transitions, suicidal ideation , suicide and crisis intervention, PTSD and trauma.
We may face a point in life when our foundation is jolted and we begin to question the path we are on. We can be faced with circumstances that affect areas of our life and result in feeling confused or stuck on how to move forward. We may experience a sense of imbalance in our work, relationships, self-care, or spirituality. As we try to regain our footing and work towards resolving these afflictions, we may struggle with decision-making and managing the overwhelming feelings that may arise. In these moments of uncertainty, therapy can bring clarity and hope and remind us of our existing strengths and potential to persevere.

I treat a broad range of issues including depression, anxiety, self-harm, suicidal ideation , emotion dysregulation, eating disorders and concerns, and disruptive behavior disorders.
Life is hard enough for your teen – then you throw in puberty, a slow-growing prefrontal cortex, social media pressures, academic pressure, family conflict, peer conflict, maybe even a biological tendency to be more emotionally sensitive – and ta-da! The perfect Petri dish for anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues has been created. Or maybe your child hasn’t hit teenagehood yet, but they’re exhibiting problem behaviors and/or emotion dysregulation that you both could use some help managing. My goal is to help you and your child make sense of what's happening and together find ways to improve your quality of life.

Hello! I am a LCSW passionate about working with individuals and families struggling with severe mood and anxiety.

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,

When it comes to Pastoral Care, (I.e. Spiritual Resiliency and over-all Spiritual Health), most intelligent progressive thinking people want acceptance, compassion and care from their Therapist in a non judgmental atmosphere. Having been on the receiving end of those over baring ministers, I can honestly say, " I feel your pain." My main objective is your main objective. My ministry exist to meet you at your point of need. If this is the type of Therapist your most comfortable with, then let's connect or reconnect with the divine as you seek to become all that you were meant to be.

I have assisted individuals in overcoming issues they may struggle with that are connected to trauma, grief & loss, depression, general anxiety, COVID19 anxiety, juvenile justice systems, oppositional teens, suicidal ideation and marital and family conflicts.
As a person of color born and raised in the Bay Area, I truly believe in my task and role as a therapist to reach those who feel as though their story is unheard and invalidated by the world we currently live in. My strengths as a therapist consist of gaining over nine years of experience working in the field of mental health as a mental health clinician under the non-profit realm and private practice within Santa Clara County. Over the course of my experience I have built skills in providing therapy to socioeconomically diverse families, children, individuals, couples, and those who identify with the LGBTQIA population.

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.

What do I do if my child can focus on interesting things but takes 3 hours to do 30 minutes of homework? What if my child doesn't seem to be doing as well as I thought they would in school, can something be done? How do I stop feeling so down and blue, or anxious? What if I had a concussion and I am not getting better, but the doctor told me to just rest and do nothing, are there ways for me to improve my condition? Do I have the early signs of dementia? what can be done if I do? My child went to college and failed, is there hope for them to get better? I provide solutions to these questions and more!

Sometimes the hardest thing in life is to forgive yourself, or forgive others for what has happened. It can really keep you stuck in the same cycle, over and over, depressed, and anxious. It is like Kryptonite; it keeps you from living the life you want to live, and from discovering the superpowers you have inside of you. What would happen if you could use those superpowers? What would happen if you were to feel your enthusiasm again? Where would you go, what would you do, what new skills would you like to learn? Where is your Kryptonite hidden.

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.
