You may have found that due to some recent life circumstance, you are feeling stressed, anxious, lonely, overwhelmed, or even ashamed. These are natural, human emotions, which can arise from a host of reasons including fertility challenges/reproductive loss, adjusting to parenthood, work-related stress, starting college, or relationship issues. It can feel isolating and you deserve to be seen and understood. The good news is you don’t have to go through it alone, and you were never meant to.

Sometimes circumstances in life can feel unbearable and we do not know how we are going to get through it. Experiencing trauma, a pandemic, racism, grief & loss (marriage, death of partner, child, loved one, terminal illness, break ups, loss of job, etc.), pressures of work and/or school are some issues that make us feel anxious, alone, and depressed. Our need for inner peace and healthy coping is crucial for our mental, spiritual, and physical health! Overcoming the overwhelming feelings of anxiety, depression, and anger can feel empowering and peaceful which leads to a better quality of life!

Most mental health providers assist the patient(s) with the process of gaining interpersonal awareness, but do not specialize in both the emotional and physical aspects of intimacy. Alternatively, most intimacy coaches do not specialize in the psychodynamic underpinnings of human attachment and resulting relational dynamics. I offer a safe, non-judgmental, and confidential environment that allows couples or individuals to address issues, questions, and concerns pertaining to sexuality, intimacy, and relationships.

Working with a neutral third party can offer you an environment--one of safety and non-judgement--in which you may feel more at ease sharing and exploring your innermost thoughts and feelings. I see us working collaboratively on whatever issue(s) and/or goal(s)you bring in. I have been working in the counseling profession for more than 10 years. I have worked with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families.

Seeking help can be intimidating and scary. Revealing the most vulnerable pieces of yourself to a stranger takes an incredible amount of courage and risk, and is often a barrier to people seeking help. However, simply reading this means you’re brave enough to take that risk and you’re already taking the initial steps toward living a life that you want for yourself. My goal is to help you in a timeframe that works for you. Therapy is a process and I believe it moves at your pace and in the direction you see fit. You’re the leader to your care because you are the expert in yourself. I’m simply here to help cultivate growth.

So much of what is offered in the field of psychotherapy is like putting new paint over a rusty patio chair. It looks great at first, but the rust is still eating away at the metal, weakening and destroying the chair underneath. In my practice I focus on working with my patients to find the sources of their unhappiness and then helping them to understand how those things from their past are affecting their current life. It is only through real understanding that permanent change can occur.

This journey is different for everyone, and I embrace the challenge to find this balance with those that I work with.

What type of San Benito County 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 San Benito County?
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.
