I'm able to build a bridge of understanding and acceptance that can reunite a relationship.
I believe if we can transform the couple’s relationships, we are not only helping them, but also helping them and their families for generations to come. Also, most of people’s toughest struggles are related to their relational issues so, as the relationship improves, the person's individual problems seem less challenging.

Despite our evolutionary progress the essence of being human hasn’t changed. We require acceptance , understanding, compassion, love and connection. We struggle with our fears, hopes, dreams, and relationships. These are the common issues that bring people into therapy. The pathway to healing can be achieved in many ways. Each person has his/her own unique perception and emotional world and my first task is to understand yours. Together we can create your path to self acceptance , strength and resilience. Your first step is to accept responsibility, then to identify the critical components of your individuality and identity.

Though I work with most issues, I specialize in helping people recover from complex trauma. People with narcissistic, abusive, or neglectful parents or partners sometimes develop issues with trusting themselves, have difficulty maintaining close relationships, struggle with an inner critic, vacillate often between depression and anxiety, lack a solid sense of identity, or feel a sense of emptiness when their lives seem great on paper. Sometimes that trauma can even become part of one's identity - I work with clients to build insight, boundaries, self-compassion, and acceptance to free themselves from it & live more fulfilling lives.

Trauma, anxiety, and addiction can make you feel stuck. The most important step towards healing is to address the unresolved emotion inside you. Healing requires feelings. Acceptance slowly dissolves pain. When we function from the fear and scarring of our trauma, the cycles continue until we learn how to transmute that energy into love. I apply a Holistic approach that integrates physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual forms of well-being, addressing the “whole” self. Through a holistic framework tailored to your unique needs, the goal is to support you develop a deeper understanding of the self on all these levels.

I use Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Art Therapy.
I specialize in helping people who know what changes need to be made, but who struggle with knowing how to make them: whether it is with food, relationships, self-harm or addictions. My method is primarily skills based: I accept what you bring in, and then we work together toward change. I am experienced with mood, anxiety and thought disorders. I'm passionate about working with eating disorders, body image and LGBTQ+ issues. I work well with adults, adolescents and groups. I strongly believe that developing a solid and collaborative therapeutic relationship is crucial to healing.

Are you feeling stuck? Does your life feel overwhelming? Are you having a difficult time coping? I would like to support you in leading a fuller and more meaningful existence. As your therapist, I will help you cope more effectively with your problems by challenging your routine thought processes, identifying typical response patterns, and learning effective ways of behaving. You can expect to discover new insights about yourself and feel empowered to make changes that align with your values. The eventual goal is for you to translate what you learn in therapy into daily living, and find healing amidst adversity.

M-CBT and ACT are powerful training programs to clarify your goals, build your internal motivation and learn skills to help you think and act more intentionally.
Life can be hard, whether dealing with unexpected setbacks, longstanding problems, or just working hard to build a life of purpose and meaning. Some clients are dealing with stress, grief, and loss. Some clients are stressed by balancing a life that could best be described as “All Good Things, Just Too Many.” I believe our work is about more than treating dis-ease. It is about living fully, with ease, vitality, and wellness. Sometimes this starts with learning to deal with hard thoughts and feelings that can get in the way. It always involves getting clear about who you want to be and what matters most.

Can you imagine having a relationship that's filled with more peace and joy than anxiety and hurt? What would it feel like to be met with acceptance and love when you express yourself? The result might be that you rediscover love and safety, and can confidently say, “we can handle anything that comes up!" I'd love to help you get there.
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.

We all experience difficult times in our lives, but some of those times are harder than others. It may feel like you have to go through this alone, but you don’t. I support people who are dealing with problems like anxiety, life stress, domestic violence, and other traumas. I will offer my acceptance and expertise, while also helping you find ongoing support in your own community, in whatever form that takes. Many of my clients experience a decrease in symptoms, an increase in confidence, and a stronger feeling of connection through therapy. I’d love to see how I can help you feel better as well.

—I am currently accepting video clients—Good therapy is a process of opening up to our unique emotions and desires, and learning how to talk about and act on them successfully. This work is often portrayed as difficult, but at its best it is enlivening, even enjoyable. My work is devoted to helping people achieve this. I specialize in supporting those struggling with depression, anxiety, anger, trauma, and grief, who are motivated to grow.

For example, I provide CBT therapy as well as ACT therapy strategies.
Do you feel stuck between two or more worlds, unsure of who you are? Or perhaps you feel trapped in the life you’re currently living. Many of my clients come to me when they are afraid to be themselves, whether that means sharing their hopes and dreams, making needed changes in a relationship, or expressing their sexuality. I help people better understand themselves, and who they really are underneath cultural expectations and pressures. I’m not here to judge, to tell you how to live, or tell you what you’re doing wrong. Instead I’ll listen, see the whole you, and help you make your own decisions about the future.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapists
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorizing that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviors to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in San Jose or for a San Jose ACT therapist these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counselors.
