I specialize in psychological assessments and psychotherapy for adolescents and adults. Assessments are often conducted to assess for ADHD, autism, learning disorders, cognitive problems, and psychiatric disorders. I use an evidence based approach to assessment and provides treatment recommendations that make the evaluation meaningful to each individual. I also have extensive experience working with individuals struggling with substance use and mental health problems. I explore underlying reasons for the development of these psychiatric problems and provide treatment that focuses both on reducing use and living a life worth living.

The last 15 years I have worked extensively with individuals struggling with many forms of trauma and substance use disorders - as well as the resulting relational, emotional and physical disconnections.
We all need a safe place to unpack stress and explore unhealthy patterns in order to create the meaningful changes we want in our lives. I encourage clients to approach therapy with an open and curious mind. For my part, you can expect compassion, collaboration and an unwavering authenticity in each session - with a healthy dose of humor when welcomed.

Whether you are experiencing grief, depression, anxiety, loss of motivation, recovering from trauma, dealing with health issues, struggling with substance use or simply want to feel more fully integrated, I am honored to be a part of that journey.
I cannot move mountains for you, but I can help you climb. Facing fears, healing from loss, finding meaning and joy - these are the inevitable tasks of life. Therapy may be your first step or your last resort. Often people avoid it all together because they believe their pain is too great, worry they will be judged or that their situation is too complicated. Some people believe they should solve problems on their own or only with family and friends. However, while family and friends may want the best for us, they often come with opinions or past hurts. Sometimes it helps to have a safe space outside your daily experience.

Therapy means many different things to different people. For some it is a journey of growth, self-awareness, and healing. For others it is necessary for them to survive. For some it is something they are mandated to do, and for many it is something they really want to do. No matter where you fall on this spectrum, I am here to support you through your process. Therapy is about where you are, where you want to go, what you want to explore, and joining you on your experience. I am here to listen, to guide you, focus you, support you and push you when needed.

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.
