You have felt different from others most of your life. You're tired of being constantly told that you are too sensitive or emotional. You feel too much. You require so much more alone time and downtime than most people. You believe in the good of others and that has sometimes caused you deep hurt in your relationships. It's exhausting and lonely being the person everyone goes to for advice and perspective. You're an old soul and you see the world differently. But the world seems so unkind to you in return. You've given so much and worked so hard but continue to feel unseen by those you care about. I see you.

I'm not in the business of instigating change. I am in the delicate and complex work of empowering it. Because I believe you have the wisdom to bring about change. Because change is your work and your choice; my role is to set the stage, empty it, illuminate what stands in the way and explore with you the possibilities for change. Ultimately you decide.The fact that you're here already ensures it. My job is to notice your process, reflect and honor it. In this space, I have seen amazing change happen.

I have enjoyed working with clients from very diverse cultural, ethnic, socioeconomic, and religious backgrounds and sexual orientations and identities for over 20 years. I prize establishing respectful, trusting, and collaborative relationships with my clients as this is key in helping them achieve their goals in treatment. It is my goal for clients to leave therapy with new skills, new understanding, a sense of empowerment, or having worked through some difficult experiences. My past training and clinical work have provided me expertise in the areas of depression, cultural issues, assertiveness, relationships, anxiety, and trauma.

Life is full of challenges which may include difficulty in one's personal relationships. Seeking therapy can be intimidating, but I will provide a safe, non-judgmental environment for one to share their thoughts and feelings. Therapy provides a healthy outlet to learn new skills to improve interpersonal relationships and overall mental health. I have a Master's Degree in Social Work and have been in the field for the past 20 years. I thoroughly enjoy working with the adult population. I personally know how therapy can help tremendously during low periods of life. Therapy should provide mental healing and wholeness!

Do you often feel reactive to something your partner does or says? Are misunderstandings that lead to arguing and hurt feelings common in your relationship? Do you struggle to feel connected to your partner on a deep level, or when you do it’s short-lived? Maybe it seems if only they could see things from your point of view, you'd understand each other and the arguing would stop. You still love each other, but it’s frustrating and exhausting when you feel like you’ve tried everything and you're still stuck in the same cycles. You don’t want to be living parallel lives, but sometimes arguing or disconnecting is the only option.

I believe therapy can provide a safe space for creating a more fulfilled life. There are times where we may experience traumas, feel stuck and emotionally disconnected, and have difficulty coping. My approach to therapy includes a humanistic centered style, where we establish a collaborative and trusting relationship to allow for vulnerability and personal growth to occur. I am committed to providing compassionate and empathetic care to support you in your journey towards self-discovery, where we can explore and identify your strengths, build confidence, and self- esteem.

Your healing matters. Healing can often look like having stronger boundaries, less avoidance, improved work performance, and more satisfaction in relationships. Unresolved trauma can make your relationships, parenting, work performance, bodily functioning, and overall day-to-day routine feel unbearable. I provide therapy short-term or long-term to help you cope with what is lingering e.g. stress, anxiety, depression, or triggers to previous trauma. I adapt my therapy style depending on the person and context because each responds differently to psychotherapy. Providing a safe space is always my first priority.

Do you feel worried, stuck, or overwhelmed much of the time? Perhaps anxiety or other problems keep you from leaving home, interacting with others, or doing activities you enjoy. Many of my clients deal with addiction problems, past trauma, depression, low self-esteem, or related issues. A lack of confidence can make it difficult to feel safe in the world. I help people get to the bottom of what’s going on. Whether you’re struggling with a mental health issue, working through a trauma or loss, or aren’t sure what’s happening, I can help. You can feel more hopeful, less anxious, and more excited about living again.

What type of San Jose 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 Jose?
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.
