In addition, my 23 year work history as an on-campus counselor at Bay Area elementary, middle and high schools, an MFT intern supervisor, an adjunct professor of psychology, as well as my position as a Clinical Director at the Teen and Family Counseling Center, have all helped to round out my clinical experience.
My goal is to provide clients with a safe place to talk, sort through feelings and explore issues that may be affecting their mood, behavior, motivation or relationships. Using a combination of supportive therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy, my work is about supporting clients while looking at the sources of distress and helping them to improve their reactions, make changes, and cope with life and others in a healthier way. I work with individuals, couples, and children for any issue they are struggling with either individually or as a family.

I have worked extensively with adolescent and young adults in transitions.
I am a licensed psychologist who has over 18 years experience working with adolescents and adults. Therapy is a collaborative process between therapist and client. I strive to create a supportive environment in which clients can feel safe to explore their feelings and address barriers that are interfering with their quality of life. I draw from a variety of treatment approaches that match your own personal needs and goals. I believe our thoughts influence our feelings and ultimately our behavior so I also work from a cognitive behavioral approach.

Trouble communicating with your teen ? Unable to break the cycle of arguments with your partner? Overwhelmed and not sure why? Our interactions with the world are shaped by our families and the broader cultures that surround us as we grow up. As an adult, you might find that those patterns no longer work for you, or get in the way of your having fulfilling relationships with your spouse or children.

I am here to help! I not only provide individual therapy for your teen , but I also provide parent coaching as well.
With over 20 years of almost exclusively working with SF Bay Area teens and their families (and a mother of two teenagers),-I have a solid understanding of the issues adolescents face, the struggles they encounter, and the mental health problems that are so very prevalent for them today. Depression and anxiety are at all all time high for teens and understanding the why isn't always so clear. My clients are facing a myriad of concerns - school refusal, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, substance use, social struggles, disordered eating, behavioral issues, just to name a few. One in thing is common is that they are all hurting,

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in San Jose and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
