It is heartbreaking to see your child struggle and not know how to help them. Most parents who call me have tried every tool they have to help their children with little or no result. you might feel alone in your experience, feel guilt and shame for not being able to help your child or even for losing your own temper if you have an intense high need child. Perhaps your child is struggling in school, and you are dreading the next phone call to address the latest issues, or feel exhausted trying to go through the daily function without meltdowns, or worrying about your teen’s emotional state, lack of communication,or defiant behavior

We all come with different stories, identities, backgrounds, cultures, and representations of our experiences which make up who we are and how we relate to the people and world around us. Therapy is an opportunity to examine, understand, and process these parts in order to find our place in the world, establish healthy relationships, and feel a sense of joy and satisfaction in life. I am passionate about supporting adult individuals and couples through life transitions, relationship issues, anxiety or stress related issues, and navigating existential or spiritual processes.

I work with adolescents and young adults navigating, depression, anxiety , trauma, grief, biculturality and more.
Are you feeling stuck? Do you feel like instead of a spiral you are travelling in an endless circle of sadness, fear, arguments, grief, or simply confusion? Sometimes life get's hard and sometimes we get stuck. Therapy is here to help in these moments-- through gentle exploration of your thoughts, feelings, and actions we can work to uncover the places where you are feeling trapped in order to help you create new thoughts, healthier feelings, and actions more in alignment with the person you want to be: whether it be happier, more peaceful, more successful, more calm.

Though I consider myself a generalist and am happy to help with a variety or concerns, my areas of specialty and interest include anxiety , OCD, panic , health-related concerns, and peripartum issues.
We all have strategies for dealing with challenges day-to-day. But over time, many strategies can fall short or even backfire. We may find ourselves withdrawing and avoiding certain aspects of our lives, or overextending and pushing ourselves to the point of exhaustion. This can leave us feeling anxious, depressed, and irritable and can also take a toll on our relationships and physical health. One of my goals as a therapist is to help you identify changes you can make, both big and small, and tap into your motivation to follow-through on those changes.

My specialties include trauma, anxiety , dysfunctional family systems, codependency, parenting issues, child-parent mental health, eating disorders, and life transitions.
Compassion is the foundation of my therapeutic work with all clients. It's important to me that you feel respected, cared for, and that you feel better. Challenging life situations, traumatic experiences, and/or dysfunctional family dynamics can cause all of us to feel distressed. Sharing your experiences, feeling validated and listened to, can decrease your emotional pain. Using a relational and client-centered approach, I can address your individual needs. Working together, we can find solutions and tools to help you make lasting changes that ultimately result in you feeling better.

I'm well versed in related issues of depression and anxiety , with effects on relationships, productivity, and well-being.
Are you feeling caught between contradictory feelings of hope and despair? Finding a space where we can feel deeply understood is important to developing a secure sense of self. Psychotherapy offers a reflective space to explore the wordless thoughts, the nameless pain or the inner conflicts that may inhibit us. Through therapy a greater sense of integrity and meaning in life is possible. When we respond with genuine understanding and acceptance, hope may be restored and joy found. I listen to clients with openness and intuition. I encourage those I work with to begin to trust their own inner resources and find their own resilience.

Embarking on the journey of psychological treatment is a very personal decision, and can cause its own anxiety .
Are you finding yourself caught in self defeating patterns? Are you anxious or depressed and don't know why? Maybe you are hard on yourself in ways you aren't to others. Or, do you find yourself overly critical of others? Do you wish you were happier, more at peace? We all try and want to live at our best, but many of us find ourselves pulled back into old patterns before we recognize our actions. We cope in many different ways or develop symptoms that are often self destructive. Why do we do this?

Do you feel "stuck" with repeating cycles of painful emotions, thoughts, or behaviors that keep showing up in your life and getting in the way of how you would rather feel, think and behave? This stuckness shows up as depression, fears & phobias, negative beliefs about yourself, repeating relationship problems, inability or limited ability to perform something you want to do or stop doing something that is getting in the way of achieving the life you want. These and other problems can be resolved. You do not have to live with this "old stuff" getting in your way.

For a decade I've been working collaboratively with clients, developing ways to cope with and move through depression, anxiety , trauma, relationship and parenting issues, as well as providing emotional support to individuals and couples facing reproductive health issues, including infertility and perinatal mood and anxiety disorders.
At some point in our lives each of us faces obstacles or barriers we can't seem to overcome on our own. It's part of the human condition. Fortunately, professional counseling and psychotherapy can help you develop ways of moving forward through the places where you feel stuck. The empathic, and non-judgmental therapeutic relationship I offer can help you discover, or rediscover, your own strengths to heal, thrive, and create the relationships and life you desire.

They no longer want to suffer - they want to be empowered, self-confident, and at peace.

When people enter a time in their life or a situation where they may feel down, worried, overwhelmed, or without many options, I believe therapy can shed light on new paths. Using Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), I help people gain a sense of control by teaching them effective ways to communicate, regulate their emotions, and improve interpersonal relationships to bring about needed change. I work collaboratively with my clients and their families so they can improve their quality of life and thrive.

I specialize in working with individuals with anxiety , depression, ADHD, and trauma, or simply adjusting to life's transitions.
Sometimes we find ourselves in a valley, feeling depleted and uninspired. We realize we have been stuck in the same cycles, having exhausted all of the tools that once worked and unsure why change feels impossible. Sometimes we just need someone to see the best in us, to hold hope when we're barely hanging on. Therapy shouldn't be something we dread, but rather an opportunity to feel encouraged and poured into, inspired and deeply understood.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.

If you're looking for a Walnut Creek anxiety therapist, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counseling in Walnut Creek.
