I believe children and teens can learn, grow, and thrive when they have coping skills, feel empowered, and practice self-care. My goal is to encourage youth to learn who they are and how to advocate for their unique needs. I specialize in working with neurodiverse, gifted and twice-exceptional (2e) youth and their families. I encourage youth to use their strengths and interests in order to grow, heal, and cope. Building self-awareness, such as understanding their own sensory processing and asynchronous development, is an important part of my work with youth.

I am here to listen to you. I work with children, teens, and adults to support exploration of difficult issues and life changes. Often what brings someone to seek counseling, either for themselves or for their child, is being faced with a challenge they need support navigating and resolving. This issue may result from an atypical experience or be more pervasive, and can bring about feelings of anger, depression, anxiety, low self-worth, or communication issues. Taking the risk to ask for help is the first step on the road toward healing and growth.

I’ve spent my life overcoming setbacks and challenges—while breaking barriers along the way. I’ve led technology teams for over twenty years at Fortune 500, startup and non-profit companies in Silicon Valley, before making a career change to clinical therapy in 2006. I’ve seen and experienced quite a bit during that time. However in 2013, when I followed my husband to Norway, I found myself in a new reality. That discovery process led me to the realization there are many just like me and it’s why I created Authentigrate—a global program designed to help others live authentically.

You don’t understand why your family causes you so many sleepless nights. You need someone to talk to but feel shame bringing up family issues or you don’t know where to start. You try to please everyone but you end up being the unhappy one. You cut off toxic family relationships but this leaves you feeling guilt, loneliness, and resentment. To prove yourself, you work hard and sometimes overcompensate. Past unresolved issues consume your energy, make you question yourself, and become hesitant to try a new relationship. You don’t want to be your parents but you don’t know how not to. You doubt if you can live a different life.

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.

In childhood, our outside shapes the inside, and in adulthood the inside shapes the outside. -Chip Judd I believe that who we are today is shaped by the experiences and relationships we had growing up. Through relationships we can become aware of our own strengths as well as our brokenness from past hurts, hiccups, and hang ups and discover that a part of us yearns to be heard, revealed, and healed.

You might be seeking help because you feel stuck in your relationships, with your family or with your child. The stories of our lives are powerful and can shape our reality.

Together we can champion your innate healing capacity in a safe, emphatic, and attached, therapeutic relationship. Therapeutic support can help you recover your true sense of self as an individual or a parent, can heal family wounds, and help you find a renewed zest for life.

*No current availability* We all experience negative emotions to varying degrees in our lives. However, anxiety and depression can become a problem when they get in the way of us being able to manage the important things in our life--our work, our studies, or our relationships. Parenting struggles, ADHD, and behavioral problems can have an immense impact on a family system, as well. If you or your child is struggling with feeling down or anxious, or having behavioral challenges, there are proven ways of learning to overcome these negative emotions while also learning a great deal about yourself, and what's important to you.

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.
