I am a teletherapist providing psychotherapy across the general Bay area, expanding across California. Are you feeling stuck? Sometimes not taking action highlights the familiarity in your situation, although it can be life interfering and soul-sucking. You might be a child of immigrant parents navigating various identities and juggling multiple roles, adjusting to parenthood, feeling stagnant or burnt out in your professional career, healing from a broken relationship or experiencing grief, suffering from imposter syndrome, or … you name it! We can find ways to help you make changes.
My ideal client is someone who needs help reaching their highest potential and decrease emotional suffering. They should be ready and willing to begin receiving guidance on how to reach their peak. I believe in self-determination and that individuals can find solutions with the right support.
Life used to be easier! Perhaps you feel stuck in your relationships and you are not getting along with the people you see daily. Issues in life can be overwhelming and full of challenges. I begin by meeting you at your place of growth or healing, and whether trauma, abuse, grieving, recovery or life issues, we work together to overcome them. There is hope. Let me help you reach the goals and connections you deserve. With sensitivity and compassion, we work to determine what might be blocking your full potential and your feelings.
People often begin therapy because they are in a crisis or in emotional pain and need relief from their suffering. While difficult, it is often the catalyst that opens the door to creative life force and new possibilities in living in the world.
Psychotherapy is a deeply personal, individualized, alchemical process. I serve clients in the areas of trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), relationship issues, anxiety, addictions and self-development. I assist clients in not only getting relief from their suffering but also enhancing their personal and spiritual lives and having healthier relationships with themselves and others.
All orientations, cultures, abilities, gender identities and consensual relationship structures are welcome. I'm an ally for the LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC communities and I welcome your idiosyncratic self and your intersecting identities.
I offer individual therapy to adults. I combine intellectual, thoughtful and non-judgmental perspectives on issues brought to session, such as depression, anxiety, relational conflicts, grief and stress. I work with folks who have a variety of identities. I have specialized experience helping folks with historical/current trauma, substance use, sexuality/gender issues, and folks with disabilities. Overall, my goal is to reduce suffering and increase happiness. We will do that together by identifying patterns, increasing self-acceptance, and illuminating strengths. My style is active, caring, personal, and joyful.
We all endure challenges and hardships, from small wounds to larger traumas. Therapy should be a safe space to explore the parts of your life that are causing distress - a place to integrate different parts of your self, to gain self-awareness, and to process difficult things.
I provide a safe, empathic, and non-judgmental space to explore any issues that have brought you to therapy. I work with individuals and couples at all developmental stages, partnering with you to navigate the uncertainties of life transitions, relationship difficulties, and barriers that may be keeping you stuck. Most of us want to move in the direction of a meaningful, authentic life that reflects our values, but for various reasons the path becomes obscured. I both challenge and support my clients in their courageous steps toward clarity and fulfillment.
Everybody has a story to tell, and I want to hear yours. I believe you are the expert of your experience and together we can help you navigate your life with more ease and happiness. I work with adults and teens struggling with a range of issues (anxiety, depression, trauma, body image, relationships, identity) to build empowerment, develop acceptance/motivation for change, and establish practical ways to cope with stress.
I’m glad you’re here. Searching for the right therapist can be overwhelming! By starting the process, just know you are on the right track. I work young adults and adults who want support and relief around anxiety, relationship challenges, family dynamics, boundaries, identity, stress and life transitions. I am certified in Perinatal Mental Health and also work with parents/moms-to-be during the perinatal phase - a lot of feelings, thoughts, and changes come with expecting a child, postpartum, parenting and relationship shifts.
I welcome individual adults, parenting couples and teens into my private practice. My clients often wish to discuss improving their mood, increasing performance at work/school, identifying problems in relationships, exploring their gender identity and establishing healthy screen time/social media habits. With all clients, my initial goal is to offer a safe, non-judgemental space in which we can discover what facets of life most impact them, and how. The goal of my therapies is always to unravel with clients how they arrived in the stressful circumstances they currently inhabit, and how to work on reducing emotional pain.
My clients cross all cultural backgrounds. They are often dealing with PTSD and old beliefs that are damaging their lives. I help them reclaim their lives with techniques involving cutting edge brain re-training that is more effective at creating permanent healing than talk therapy alone. By rewriting the brain's programs that have accumulated over a client's lifetime, we create emotional well-being, peace, joy and self-acceptance. I work with many issues, including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, conscious uncoupling, addictions and sexual issues. Text me for more info: 831-888-6201.
I am passionate about helping clients address the challenges they face with cognitive behavioral therapy techniques and mindfulness practices. Anxiety, depression, past traumas, lack of community acceptance, and difficult environmental and situational factors may’ve brought you to a place of feeling unwell or stuck. Time-tested therapy techniques may be just what you need to address these difficulties and move forward. I have worked with a diverse assortment of clients who've faced a variety of concerns, including career difficulties, LGBT-related matters, abuse, grief, severe persistent mental illness, and relationship issues.
Are you a parent looking for support for your young child, family, marriage, or relationship? Are you a parent/caregiver who is not sure if your child is showing signs of anxiety, stress, depression, or behavioral challenges? Or maybe you, your partner, or your relationship is needing some support. If so, I would love to help!
Welcome to my practice. I am a licensed clinical psychologist with a doctoral degree from California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University in SF. I have experience helping clients address a range of concerns including, adjusting to life transitions, questioning and exploring identity , relationship issues, aging, grief/loss, work-life balance, and more.
“You’re the only other person I’ve ever felt safe telling this to” “I feel so comfortable with you” I always feel a deep sense of pride when I get this kind of feedback from my clients. In therapy with me, you are welcome just as you are! I invite you to show up as a real person with all your quirks, inner contradictions, and intersecting identities. I value providing a space where you feel comfortable to openly share your feelings, thoughts, desires, dreams, fears, etc. Especially the stuff that is “sticky” “bad” “wrong” or vulnerable. These are all the different parts that make you human.
How are you doing really? Whatever you are experiencing now that has led you to be curious about therapy I am grateful you are here. Welcome! It takes guts taking steps toward finding the support you need. I work with people helping them gain awareness of who they are, so they can start living life fully! I have no hidden agendas and am committed to meeting you where you are and supporting your process. I help clients through inquiry of the present moment with topics such as: life transitions, depression, anxiety, grief and trauma tailoring my approach to your unique individual needs.
I find I work best with adolescents and adults who are trying to answer the questions: why am I the way that I am? Why do I want things in my life to change? And how do I go about making changes that are truly longlasting and motivated by me and my needs (not my parents, my boss, my mentor, my partner(s), etc)? There are many identities and experiences that fall under these questions, and I keep it open-ended intentionally. Just because I've worked with many people who identify as something or have experienced something, or even had similar experiences myself, doesn't mean that I know YOUR experience without getting to know you.
Having a hard time sleeping? Unable to turn your brain off? Grappling with tough questions and feel like you need a little extra help navigating life right now? My role as a therapist is to support you to make choices that empower you, and help you explore and resolve your issues.
