Be able and confident to use real tools helping to bring ease in your life and get your world on track. There is help for suffering, PTSD, anxiety, etc. that does not always involve having to trench up the past, but rather, can work right now to bring relief. Are you hurting or stuck? Often our past laid down unconscious survival mechanisms that are at work today that are no longer useful. We can work together to discover these and then insert a new and more useful tool that can allow more ease in your world. I help you identify current needs are so that these can be supported.

My clients seek to change what is difficult and what isn’t working in their life. Many struggle with the impacts of trauma interfering with their day to day life. Others may struggle with feeling stuck or emotionally overwhelmed. They may be experiencing a challenging dynamic in their relationships or a lack of connectedness to others. My clients are looking to transform their life, achieve personal growth, and to heal.

Are you easily overwhelmed by emotions? Do you find that you frequently try to snuff out or avoid sadness, anger, shame, or other strong feelings? If your experience is that your mood or emotions are in the drivers' seat on the road of your life (or holding the remote control to your mind) I can help you regain power and develop greater freedom and flexibility within. As your therapist and guide, I can help you learn strategies and tools for managing difficult life problems and the intense emotions they create. I can help you overcome painful circumstances and build the life you want to live.

I help patients solve their emotional and psychological problems. They learn tools to overcome depression, anxiety, and stress and are facilitated in stopping inappropriate use of food, alcohol and drugs. Parents and stepparents learn skills to become more effective. Patients acquire methods to re-parent themselves as well as techniques in how to be more satisfied in their personal and professional relationships. Individuals gain insights that enhance their ability to feel more confident and be more productive by setting goals to achieve positive results and outcomes. Children and adolescents learn to improve their relationships with themselves and build better social and interpersonal relationships.

I consult, support, offer parent/child coping strategies to prevent longterm effects of severe stress & trauma for children/affected others. Even the youngest can demonstrate remarkable resilience.

At different times we experience unresolved situations that affect our sense of clarity, calm and balance. As a therapist and guide, together we will strive to remove those obstacles and restore hope and engagement. We can achieve this through developing goals and ways to cope that address those often unexpected and sometimes familiar patterns of living. My practice serves individual adults, children/teens, parents including parent and child therapy and elders. My wish for clients is to find an open/trusting therapist in me, and for us to collaboratively effect healing/change.

I have many years experience working with children 0-5 and I have an Infant Mental Health Certificate from Santa Clara County. I recently got trained in EMDR (Eye Movement) processing. My goal as a therapist is to provide a safe trusting empathetic environment and to empower people to solve your own problems.

Adoption Therapists
In recent years, psychologists have begun to investigate how adopted children and their adoptive families navigate their lives together. In an attempt to help children who have been adopted adjust and thrive in a new home, and to understand why problems may arise, studies look at the genetic as well as both prenatal and postnatal environmental influences on the development of children who have been adopted.
