I have experienced depression , trauma, grief and breast cancer.
Life isn't always easy. I have created a safe, empathetic and diverse environment for those that would like help on their journey. There is no reason for you to suffer alone. Research has found the longer trauma, depression and anxiety go untreated the worse it will get. The good news is there is help for you. I offer transparency and genuineness in my practice. This helps create a safe environment where you can share your story and not feel judged. It's easy in our fast-paced world to forget about ourselves. I don't mean this in a selfish way. I mean it in a way where you can genuinely start to create balance for yourself.

I have a passion for working with teens and adults with a variety of mental health symptoms around anxiety, depression , and life transitions.
Are you looking for a place to explore your thoughts, feelings, and worries without shame or judgment? The decision to seek out therapy is a personal choice made by many teens and adults. Sometimes my clients choose to work on a long-standing mental health struggle such as depression , anxiety, or grief and loss issues. Therapy is useful during times of significant transition or stress such as loss of a loved one, launching into adulthood, bullying, or trauma. Therapy is right for anyone who has a desire to learn more about themselves and make positive changes in their overall wellness, relationships, or daily life.

Our mental health can sometimes take us through a whirlwind of emotions and unexpected behaviors, without an understanding of why. Whether it be our first experience with anxiety, depression , or a stressful life transition, it tends to manifest in the ways we feel, think, and do. My goal is to help you strengthen the mind-body awareness with intentions of learning how to care for your mental well being through the use of talk therapy and the inclusion of holistic approaches to treatment. I also provide sleep therapy under UC Berkeley Golden Bear Sleep & Mood Research Clinic.

I have many years of experience working with clients who are dealing with depression , anxiety, life transitions, PTSD and/or trauma-related symptoms.
“Therapy, yeah that’s not for me”, may have been a thought that has crossed your mind once, twice or many times. So look at this as a huge step in the right direction for you, as you look at profiles and possibly make a decision to invest in yourself. I've been in your shoes and looking for a therapist can be scary and intimidating. Your story is for you to share when you’re ready and with someone that you trust . You may be at a point in your journey in which you are experiencing difficult and unexpected feelings and emotions that you are trying to make sense of or find answers to. That is where I hope to help you.

Change is a given part of life. One's response to change can mean the difference of having a good day or a bad one, a fulfilling life or feeling stuck in a situation. One's response to change depends on one's thoughts and feelings about the change. Changing one's thoughts about a situation can be challenging. It occurs little by little. It takes a lot patience and practice to make changes. My clients may have depression , anxiety, attention problems, other behavioral or emotional problems or traumatic experiences to change.

I specialize in cognitive behavioral therapy, and I have used this to help people with all types of issues, including depression , anxiety, PTSD, addiction, self-esteem, relationship issues and more.
I believe that true peace comes from within. While our problems may be external, they are often solved internally by working on ourselves. This can sometimes be difficult as life throws challenges our way one after another and we start to feel overwhelmed. You might not know where to start or how to begin, but you have the thought inside you that says, "Something needs to change." As your therapist, I am here to help you work towards the change that you desire so that you can live a happier and more peaceful life. You have what it takes, and I will help you see the strength inside of you.

Do you battle with feeling anxious, panicky, sad, trapped, or helpless? Is it hard to enjoy things that you used to do? Anxiety and depression can affect every aspect of your life - your relationships and family life, your work or schooling, even your self-care and physical well-being. Since 1990 I have helped hundreds of people find greater understanding of their frightening or demoralizing feelings and learn the skills they need to become confident, engaged, and even passionate about life. There are things in life you can't control...anxiety and depression are not among them.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Salinas. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
