From a multiculturally informed frame, I focus on helping my clients in overcoming anxiety, depression, relationship issues, addressing issues of self-esteem including healthy self-image, and a healthy relationship with food, using evidence-based approaches like CBT, DBT, and TFCBT.
I offer authenticity, compassion, and commitment to my clients to support them in challenging and transforming their limiting beliefs while accessing their strengths, leading to a greater sense of wholeness and wellbeing. As a trauma-informed therapist, I understand how adult or childhood trauma can shatter a person’s sense of security and trust, leading to ongoing struggles with unsettling emotions, memories, anxiety, or numbness that won’t go away. I also specialize in working with people who are coping with life transitions and difficult life changes, including adapting to the stresses and complexities of family life.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Cupertino. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
