I know how intimidating vulnerability can be, especially with someone new, so thank you for taking the time to learn more about me. I grew up around a large Indian immigrant population in the Bay Area where I navigated the challenges of being Indian in an American society. We often struggled in learning how to express our emotions, felt overwhelmed by intense academic pressures, and experienced incredible dissonance navigating individualistic and collectivistic values. We also discussed ideas surrounding arranged marriages, interracial relationships, domestic violence, gender roles, queerness, and much more.

Empathy, compassion, and the emphasis on the therapeutic relationship have been the foundation of my work. I have had a wide range of experiences with children, adolescents, and adults with trauma, depression, anxiety, and sleep problems. My style is collaborative in nature, as I support and guide individuals through the healing process. Other areas of specialization include helping children and adolescents who struggle with low self-esteem and poor emotion regulation skills, as well as difficulties coping with significant life changes (e.g., relocation, divorce) and conflicts in relationships.

When you are worried that your child is not at their best and may be suffering from symptoms of depression, anxiety or behavioral problems, it can be difficult to know what to do. Making the decision to put your child in therapy can be a difficult one that comes along with fear of judgement, failure and anxiety. At the same time, we want what is best for our children and we want them to grow and succeed in life. It is my goal to assist children and families to be healthy, happy and thriving.

It does take courage to set up that first appointment, and the fit between therapist and client is an important one for the success of therapy. I encourage my clients to ask questions and express concerns about therapy and determine whether my approach and style are a good fit for you. Some common reasons people seek therapy have to do with self-exploration, how to communicate better with people, and how to cope with stressful life situations. My approach is a collaborative one and goal oriented. My focus is to support you find healthier coping skills to manage the challenging situations life might bring.

Self-awareness and understanding of our internal needs and motivations is one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves and the ones we love. Our experiences as children are woven into our adult selves, and interact with our temperaments, life circumstances and connections with others. When these threads get tangled, psychotherapy can help us understand why and guide us in either untying the knots, or learning to accept them as part of the beauty of the fabric of who we are.

Aloha! Life is full of change and transition, and that means life is also full of times when we need extra support to manage the anxiety, depression, and/or distress that often comes along with it. If this sounds like you, you're in the right place. I like to think of myself as a treatment partner, not someone who sits silently while you figure out your own path forward. That means I take a holistic, collaborative approach to treatment, with a nod to evidence-based practices, such as CBT, ACT, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused, as well as using EMDR and trauma-focused CPT for PTSD and other trauma-related symptoms.

Eating disorder symptoms such as binge eating, purging, restriction and over exercising are only some of the many eating disordered behaviors we use to cope with life. These symptoms become a way to distract from our fears and unmet needs. Over time we can become lost in the ruminating thoughts of body image, calories, weight, clean eating and exercise.

I view therapy as a very special, sacred space where my clients may begin and proceed on their journey toward health. I have extensive experience working with a host of different mental health issues. As a Christian therapist, I am able to offer not only experience and professionalism, but also provide an atmosphere of safety where clients are free to hear from God, Himself, as He brings truth which is genuine, long-lasting, and results in true healing and freedom.

Most everything you value flows from the relationship you have with yourself. Discover all that transforms when you live in a way that reflects compassion toward yourself, and a deeper connection with your emotions, truth and dreams. I am a warm, genuinely caring and intuitive therapist. People I see often say that they feel safe and at ease with me, and deeply understood. Prior to a private practice, I provided therapy at the Departments of Psychiatry at UCSD and Rady Children's Hospital, and at Scripps, and trained other therapists. I use a blend of approaches to therapy and healing, and can offer tools tailored to your needs.

Above and beyond all the psychological theories and interventions we therapists use, the most important factor in your successful experience in therapy is the relationship between you and your therapist. Most, if not all, therapists will tell you this and recent scientific research in neurobiology backs it up. This perspective, called "interpersonal neurobiology", creates the foundation of the therapy I give all my clients as we work together to help you understand what you are experiencing and how you can move closer to what you need.

One of the most important things for parents of pre-teens to remember, is that the biggest motivation for your child's behaviors is attention from you. Your child will try all sorts of things to get and keep your attention, and those behaviors that work will increase while those behaviors that don't will typically go away. Children love and thrive on praise from their parents, but in many cases, those behaviors that yield negative attention from you (such as yelling or punishing) will often reinforce those unappreciated behaviors, as well.

What type of Linda Vista, San Diego 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Linda Vista, San Diego?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.

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.
