Many of us run into stuck points throughout of lives. Whether we are getting caught in cycles of negative thoughts, ruminating on our past, or feeling weighed down by distressing emotions, these patterns influence and disrupt the rhythm of our lives. Often times, negative life events that created changes in our body, mind, and brain can be the root cause of many of the patterns that we feel stuck in. By going back to address these life events, we can then move forward and develop more constructive patterns that help us get back into the desired rhythm of our lives.

I believe we all have struggles to overcome throughout our lifetimes. If you are finding yourself in a challenging spot, whether that may include life transitions, loss, or emotional or physical difficulties, you may feel stuck. My goal is to help those with whom I work harness their inner strength and resources while learning new skills to get through whatever life may throw their way. As Thich Nhat Hanh, the Zen Buddhist spiritual leader, has said, "No mud, no lotus." I believe we can grow and blossom with the right support, no matter how dark things may seem.

Martin Luther King, Jr. said it best, "Out of a mountain of despair, a stone of hope." Challenges in life are inevitable and at times, there are challenges that seem larger than our ability to manage them. Issues such as depression, anxiety; healing from previous trauma, and abuse are areas that can grip us and prevent us from living our best lives.

I am currently out on maternity leave but feel free to reach back out in October. I find it a privilege to work with adolescents and adults during periods of growth, transition, or challenge in their lives. My approach to therapy is primarily psychodynamic and depth-oriented, incorporating attachment theory, object relations, narrative therapy, and family systems. I believe we are wired for connection but breaks in relationship to ourselves and others can lead to depression, anxiety, numbing, distorting, shame, anger, addictions, and compulsions.

I feel very humbled when people allow me into their most personal and sacred relationships. Whether it is your partner, spouse, child, or parent, my goal is to enhance the emotional connection in these crucial relationships. After all, despite today's technological advances, we have actually become more socially isolated. Any social scientist will attest to the threat that this poses to us, given that our relationships are the single greatest predictors of our happiness and wellbeing. Therefore, I strive to help people minimize their relationship fears, effectively communicate their needs, and help loved ones respond more compassionately.

I enjoy working with couples, families and individuals. Couples and families often struggle to see eye-to-eye on critical issues. I can help reduce conflict and blow-ups by restoring affection and admiration and teaching tools to help turn adversaries into allies. I have experience helping individuals going through significant life changes that may force them to think hard about who they are and what they want. These changes could involve leaving home, divorce, marriage, having a baby, starting a new job, quitting a job, finding a life partner, exploring sexuality or gender identity, etc.

I enjoy working with people who have addictions or anxiety or something else weighing them down, working with them for a relatively short period of time, and watching them become energized and passionate about their lives. I believe that my clients know themselves better than anyone else. I work to help my clients achieve their goals. I believe I can best serve people by using what research has shown to be effective. I do not believe therapy should take a long time; most of my clients graduate within 3-6 months. I work on an time-sensitive basis so some require more sessions.

Seeking therapy can be a challenging step, because opening up about intimate issues to a stranger is both terrifying and can leave you feeling vulnerable. That's why it's important to find somebody with whom you feel comfortable. It is my priority to make one feel at ease, because reaching your goal is more difficult when this is not at the foundation of the therapeutic experience. This approach has enabled me to work with a wide array of children, teens, adults, couples, and families.

Are you longing to be seen, heard, felt and understood? Are there parts of yourself waiting to be held in love? At any point in our lives, we can experience a disconnect from our essence and from others. If you find yourself merely getting through life or always in a rush, instead of feeling a deeper connection with yourself and the people around you, it might be time to take a pause and look inward. We have all experienced great losses over these past few years during the COVID-19 pandemic; let's see how we can get back in touch with what makes us each uniquely human, together.

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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in San Jose?
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.

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.
