I work with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, women's issues , life transitions, co-parenting, relationship issues, and trauma.
The ebbs and flows of life can be hard to navigate at times. There will be times we need a little extra support. Finding that support is the most important step. Are you emotionally overwhelmed, feeling stuck, or struggling in your relationships? Is anxiety preventing you from pursuing the things that matter? As your therapist, I will listen and hold the space where you can be your authentic self. Together we will untangle and demystify all the feelings, emotions, and trauma you are experiencing. We will identify your strengths, resilience, passion, and goals to make positive and healing change. We will figure it out together.

Reaching out for help often takes time--there are so many reasons we give ourselves for putting it off! I recognize your courage for being here at this time. You are at the point in your life or in your relationship, in which taking action towards healing feels necessary. With warmth, creativity and insight, I help people who are yearning to live an authentic life - a life that is real, instead of perfect. One in which you learn to listen to your inner wisdom, to express your thoughts and feelings, and to face challenges with courage and integrity.

If you are a woman who has been successful in your career but not in your relationships, therapy can help you to identify your strengths and move past the obstacles that have held you back. Our work will include understanding you as a person and not as a diagnosis, identifying the blocks that have held you back, and helping you build a more solid and confident sense of yourself. One of the hardest things about therapy can be making the initial call. If you have been searching for an approach to therapy that is warm, welcoming, and supportive, as well as intelligent and engaged, let's talk.

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.
