Trained as a clinical scientist at UC Berkeley, I am dedicated to providing cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) in a compassionate, warm, individualized, flexible, and collaborative manner. Many of my patients are accomplished people who are doing well in their lives, but they struggle with internal difficulties that interfere with their ability to feel fulfilled and successful. If this sounds like you, or if you are experiencing depression , irritability, trouble sleeping, shame, anxiety, difficulties making decisions, a feeling of being overwhelmed and stressed, or trouble managing your emotions, I can help.

I specialize in counseling for perinatal and postpartum issues, birth trauma, loss & miscarriage, parenting, women's issues, depression , and anxiety.
You prepared for this day of pregnancy/postpartum, reading all the books and following all of the Instagram parenting accounts. You're the woman who studied hard for the test, followed all the rules, and did everything perfectly. Yet somehow, you feel so different from what you expected. You find yourself crying at the drop of a hat, anxiously checking to see if your baby is breathing, and worrying you made a mistake. You worry you are "messing up" your baby and feel like disappearing. Shame overwhelms you as you think "I can't do this" and are afraid to be alone with your baby.

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. 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.
