I have particular interest in working with OCD and am skilled in exposure and response prevention techniques.
I have been providing treatment to adolescents and adults in the Bay Area since 2011. I view therapy as a collaborative process and feel strongly that treatment is most effective when individuals can share their feelings and thoughts openly. To that end, building a therapeutic relationship based on trust and mutual respect is vital to a successful outcome. I use a treatment approach that is warm and welcoming and try to remain authentic and accepting in sessions.

I have successfully treated youth with a wide range of difficulties, and I hold specific expertise in treating Anxiety, Obsessive -Compulsive Disorder, and Trauma.
We all have the natural ability to heal and grow to our full potential.  In children and adolescents this ability is enormously powerful but can be disrupted by stress and obstacles, both internal and external.  ​You are probably seeking therapy for yourself or your child, to find a way to overcome these obstacles and move forward with healing and growth. For 20 years, I have helped children, adolescents and their families find the skills they need for healthy emotional development.

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.

Anxiety, depression, or life stressors can usually build up over time until your symptoms end up negatively impacting different areas of your life. Therapy can be beneficial in providing individualized education regarding your mental health symptoms and also help you in uncover underlying, engrained beliefs that can be fueling your mental health symptoms. My clinical approach to therapy is a culturally aware, client-centered understanding of psychosocial issues and helping you uncover personal insight to your thought and behavioral patterns that likely exacerbated those symptoms.

Looking for a new way to experience therapy via a transformative conversation? Sometimes talking can feel like an interrogation, here I offer us conversations to move through and process feelings of depression, anxiety, complex grief and trauma, relationship conflict, or day to day life stressors that can feel overwhelming at times. It is through these conversations that we can identify those areas that have left you feeling stuck or lacking motivation that have held you back from living a life that you see for yourself.

I am passionate about helping through assessment. Assessments are designed to understand learning profiles, as well as to differentiate between issues (such as anxiety and inattention) and document eligibility to accommodations on standardized testing and in school. I can help with full assessments for attention, learning differences, autism, and psychological concerns. Boutique and a-la-carte testing is also available and often indicated for giftedness or as a screening to determine whether further assessment is needed. I have over 20 years of experience and can apply that expertise to devising a battery tailored to your needs.

Your mind and body make a powerful, interwoven pair. Is your body expressing what the thoughts are repressing? Easing and gently lifting your sense of heaviness from anxiety, depression, grief, isolation and emptiness of spirit can be closer than you ever believed! Let me guide you to the other side of "stuck" in your personal and professional relationships, emotions, body issues, and success. When we are in a session all the focus is on being fully present for,and deeply listening to you, offering a clear, kind and soothing direction, towards releasing unhealthy thought patterns by integrating with body feelings.

Obsessive-Compulsive (OCD) Therapists
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations (obsessions), or behaviors that make them feel driven to do something (compulsions). It affects children, kids, teens and adults. Often the person carries out the behaviors to get rid of the obsessive thoughts, but this only provides temporary relief. Not performing the obsessive rituals can cause great anxiety. A person's level of OCD can be anywhere from mild to severe, but if severe and left untreated, it can destroy a person's capacity to function at work, at school or even to lead a comfortable existence in the home.
