I love helping adults who are ready to make a change and want to address: trauma, relationship difficulties, issues with food and body image, chronic stress, anxiety, panic, or depression through building tangible tools and mindfulness-based skills. I welcome clients of diverse backgrounds and seek to provide respectful and culturally sensitive services to all. As an immigrant myself, I have a special appreciation for the experience of first and second generation immigrants. My approach draws from mindfulness, body-oriented interventions, parts work, evidence-based modalities, advances in neuroscience, and attachment research.

I am a clinical psychologist who provides individual and family therapy for youth and adults, and parenting support. I have experience with mood disorders (depression, anxiety), trauma, managing learning challenges, adoption, grief, and loss. My approach varies, drawing from one’s strengths in helping address their unique struggles. I integrate socioeconomic, cultural, gender, and sexual identity issues into therapeutic work. One of my specialities is reflecting on one’s challenges in the context of intergenerational trauma. A person’s family history can shape our relationships with others in both resilient and challenging ways.

If you have a history of depression and anxiety, you no doubt know what it feels like to move through your day as if trudging through a swamp. At worst, there's little desire or motivation or energy, and then when you do climb out of these moods, you see yourself at some point fall back in. You are likely wanting to learn how to gain some permanent ground, to not have your mood rule you, and to just feel better from day to day. If this is what you are after, then I'd like to help.

Coping Skills Therapists
With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exasperate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalization, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.

Some coping methods are more like bad habits than constructive life skills e.g. drinking and drugs. Other examples might include skin biting, nail biting or hair pulling (trichotillomania).

If you find it hard to cope or are having trouble coping, therapists in Berkeley can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.

If you're looking for help with coping skills in Berkeley or for a Berkeley coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Berkeley coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Berkeley are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Berkeley. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Berkeley
