Parent who seems to be worried about their child? Teenager that seems to be angry most of the time or "doesn't care" about anything? Families with conflict? Or just someone striving to make life a little better? I can definitely provide the support needed to bring light to your situation. Not support that a friend, parent, or spouse can give but a deeper support that will encourage you to journey through difficulties of many kinds and eventually reach a place of understanding and light. I also specialize in consulting and counseling for student-athletes from middle school through college.

There are many reasons why people reach out for support and guidance from a professionally trained therapist. Though this step isn't always the easiest, it is often one of the best decisions a person can make as it is a huge act in self-care and taking charge of ones life. Finding the right match with your therapist is one of the most important elements of therapy and I will do my very best to help ensure that you are connected with other therapists who can help if I am not the right fit for you.

As an LMFT who is also a nurse practitioner, I bring a unique perspective to my counseling practice. My clients ideally experience peace of mind, greater closeness in your relationships, and discover new ways of coping and finding joy even in difficult circumstances.

Feeling stuck? Overwhelmed? Experiencing worry, anxiety or depression? Struggling with Imposture syndrome, perfectionism or procrastination at work or in your personal life? I know seeking therapy can be frustrating and anxiety provoking. I've been there too. Therapy can help you to get unstuck and gain clarity, reduce anxiety, feel happier, develop deeper connections with friends and family, gain perspective about life's problems and disappointments, heal past wounds, establish a healthy feeling of hope and "be yourself" again.

Self-discovery is a unique journey that we all take. Our experiences, intersectional identities and environments are constantly shaping who we are. This can be an exciting and challenging time in which we tend to engage in a reflective process as various questions arise. “Will I fit in here?” “Who is there to turn to for guidance?” “What does this experience mean for me?” Individual, couple and family therapy can be an integral part of working through challenges, all of which I fully embrace on the therapeutic journey.

What type of San Mateo 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 Mateo?
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.
