I carry a deep appreciation and sense of joy for walking side by side individuals and couples through their healing journey. Such a journey is far from linear and simple. Holding space for folx of all backgrounds and identities to delve into their complex stories is the focal point of the work done in session. I provide a warm, genuine, curious and compassionate space for folx to begin and or continue this healing journey. In solidarity, folx and I will build and nourish their own personal insight that will unburden them from their adversities.

Maybe you've been feeling confused, worried, or just in friction with work, your relationship, school, or your day-today activities. It's like the harder you try, the more stuck things get. Often, you understand WHAT is happening, but how it feels and why is very foggy. How much longer can I (or we) do this for? I'm exhausted; we're exhausted. I'd like to offer that this is not "just how life is". Your life can be easier. Your relationship can be more accessible & consistent. You can feel more confident, more at ease, & more aligned.

Perhaps you've noticed a shift in your child's demeanor, behavior, mood, or thinking. You may be feeling lost, worried, or frustrated. Whatever the case, you're concerned for your child and can sense that they are struggling in some way and need a safe space to express themselves. Maybe you are having trouble navigating life's hardships and it's getting harder to imagine greener pastures ahead. You may be finding yourself challenged with thoughts that seem to have more control of you than you'd like. Perhaps you need a space to dissect and unpack the troubles that are restraining you from living a more genuine and authentic life.

Exploration into our inner process doesn’t have to be a lonely journey. I'll walk with you as you start to discover who you really are, and advocate for you along the way. We don’t have to get into the thick of it right away, in fact, I encourage you to find a pace that feels comfortable for you! I'll advocate for that, too. New relationships take time to build trust. Sticking to your sense of timing is important to this working! My approach is thoughtful, grounded and with an unwavering presence. We won’t shy away from topics that society deems taboo.

What type of Walnut Creek 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Walnut Creek?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
