My areas of interests include: 1) couples counseling and family therapy; 2) parent- child relationships problems; 3) work through earlier traumatic issues to restore physical, relational and psychological well being; 4) Serve as an authorized provider for state funded free treatment for people suffering from their own or family member's gambling problems.
I work with children and teens struggling with problems around school, mood and behavior while providing developmental guidance and effective parenting skills for parents. I work extensively with adults struggling with relationship and mood problems. Through providing a safe and relaxed environment, I guide them through a process of self-examination of their own patterns of thoughts, feelings, and relationship styles that kept them from getting what they want.

I help individuals, couples , and families go from where they are to where they want to be.
What would you do if you were given the chance to live life to the fullest? How would your days be different if you were free of the stress and worry? You're probably frustrated with the way things are and you're looking for a change. You long to see your dreams realized. Relationships mended. Your goals achieved. You know that things can be better but maybe are not sure how things can change.

For example, my father died when I was fifteen-this experience enables me to step into the shoes of someone who lost a parent, friend or spouse .
I work with children, adolescents, and adults. I have been in private practice for twenty-eight years and I believe therapy issues are all related to loss. I specialize in working with children of divorce, those who have lost a loved one, men with anger issues, and the problems of teenagers. I am the author of five self-help books. My new book is titled Letting go of Grief: Move your Body to Rock and Soul. You can check it out here: http://tinyurl.com/k8kggrv

I have expertise in CBT, and also utilize skills from ACT, DBT, and Gottman methods for couples therapy when appropriate.
Welcome to my practice. It is very common to experience distressing emotions at various points in our lives. When this happens, we often engage in unhelpful patterns of behavior and thought that can maintain and exacerbate the problem. This leads many of us to feel stuck and even hopeless. I hope to be able to help you better recognize and understand your emotions, and provide a place of validation and support for your distress. In addition, I will work with you to identify unhealthy behaviors and patterns of thought, change them, and adopt new and healthier coping strategies.

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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in San Mateo?
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.
