I have been working with children, teens and adults for almost 20 years in private practice. Prior to that, I worked in schools and at counseling agencies. I see clients of all ages using a combined approach of Cognitive Behavior and Psychodynamic therapies. However, I recognize that one size does not fit all when it comes to therapy, so I tailor my approach to the individual needs of each client.

I specialize in EMDR, creative expression, authentic movement, mindfulness, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and psychodynamic psychotherapy. Clients I see want to improve their inner and outer worlds, have happy and satisfying relationships with themselves and others, and learn more about themselves in order to feel more love, happiness, joy, and fulfillment in their lives. I accept and embrace individuals exactly as they are, while also challenging them to consider new perspectives and behaviors.

My therapeutic style is client-centered and guided by the following modalities: Existential-Humanistic, Jungian, Psychodynamic , Psychoanalytic, EMDR, IFS and DBT/ RO-DBT.
If you are new to this process it is not uncommon to feel a motley of emotions when entering into psychotherapy. Clients I see are open and willing to do the "hard work" to improve their lives. I focus on the "whole being" by addressing inner and outer worlds, the mind as well as the body. I encourage you, whatever reasons you have to seek therapy, to allow yourself the time to finding both a good fit with a therapist and an approach to therapy that feels helpful to you.

I utilize techniques from cognitive-behavioral, dialectical-behavior, as well as psychodynamic /relational therapies and am a registered Psychological Assistant (PSB94024129) at The Wise Mind Institute under supervision of Karin Sponholz, Ph.
Many of the clients I work with have either lost or struggled to develop a sense of control in their lives and relationships– having fallen into destructive patterns of substance abuse/addiction and impulsive and/or self-harming behaviors. Others may be struggling with an excess of self-imposed control– leading to a sense of isolation and fear of taking healthy risks. Some are confronting a major life-transition, loss of identity, divorce, death of a loved one or faced with a pervading sense of meaninglessness. All are, in one way or another, seeking to increase their sense of personal agency and effectiveness in daily life.

My therapeutic stance is rooted in existential-humanistic philosophy and attachment theory, and I use a variety of modalities such as CBT, DBT, psychodynamic , and EFT in my practice.
Navigating life’s inherent difficulties can be challenging. Sometimes therapy can help. From confronting issues such as loss/grief, anxiety, depression, and interpersonal problems, to facing significant life decisions or struggling with marital/relationship concerns, many factors can prevent any of us from engaging in our lives more fully. Whether you are new to therapy or you're returning to work through a new or lingering issue, creating a safe place to explore, understand, and respond to your concerns is crucial. Utilizing warmth and transparency, I hope to cultivate a trusting partnership with you.

My style is primarily psychodynamic , which explores feelings and experiences and examines conscious and unconscious defenses that can inhibit one's capacity to cope with stressors.

Working with a knowledgable, insightful and compassionate psychotherapist can make the journey bearable, smoother and more successful. In my practice, you are not alone. I partner with clients and provide guidance and support in a safe, supportive and empathetic environment to explore challenges and promote overall wellness. I specialize in helping people with depressive disorders, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, difficult life transitions, interpersonal conflicts and low self-esteem.

I offer a strength based, psychodynamic , and multicultural approach aimed at building self-efficacy and resiliency.
Self-discovery is a unique journey that we all take. Our experiences, intersectional identities and environments are constantly shaping who we are. This can be an exciting and challenging time in which we tend to engage in a reflective process as various questions arise. “Will I fit in here?” “Who is there to turn to for guidance?” “What does this experience mean for me?” Individual, couple and family therapy can be an integral part of working through challenges, all of which I fully embrace on the therapeutic journey.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Redwood City, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
