I specialize in helping couples, families, and children. As human beings, we have a need to feel connected to a significant other who becomes like a safe haven and a source of security and comfort. This person helps us to face the world with confidence because we know there is someone who cares about us. When we feel disconnected from our attachment figure, we feel unprotected and life's challenges seem to be bigger and scarier. I help people to feel secure in their relationship by strengthening their bond so that they become responsive, accessible and emotionally engaged to their partners.

Are you in pain, struggling with recent events or old patterns and you can't seem to get a handle on things? One minute, you are on the verge of tears. The next, you are out of control, or checking out to escape the wounds from the past, the stress of life, or the endless demands of other people. It spills over into pretty much everything. You ask God for help, are wornout from trying so hard and feel disconnected. What if instead of turmoil and exhaustion, you could feel lighter, a calm confidence, and a new sense of peace and freedom? It is possible and I can help.

You do not have to go through life challenges alone. People come to see me for a number of reasons. Maybe you are seeking help for anxiety or depression or maybe you are going through a difficult event, like the death of a loved one, a break-up, or health issues. Maybe you hope to have healthier and more satisfying relationships. Maybe you are haunted by experiences stemming from childhood or the more recent past. We all are seeking a better life, a pathway to some change, and a greater sense of peace or confidence. Therapy is a great place to work toward these goals.

My clients have been trying to make changes for a long time. Sometimes their struggles take over and cause them to do drastic things like over-exercise, binge, purge, or restrict. For a moment they feel better. But over time, their struggles begin to take on a life of their own. By the time my clients find me, they feel very distant from who they are and the life they used to enjoy. The people I work with want to stop obsessing about food and appearance. Many struggle with anxiety, depression, or traumatic histories. A small part of them believes life can be better and is searching for guidance on how to get there.

MINDFULNESS, BALANCE, GROWTH, AND EMPOWERMENT. It is possible to achieve a higher level of inner peace and reduce unnecessary suffering. We all can "lose our way" at times and find ourselves in situations that are difficult and painful. I believe that these crises can hold within them tremendous opportunities for growth and strengthening. Although most enter therapy during a crisis, the therapeutic process need not also feel painful or traumatizing. I will create a safe and validating therapeutic environment in which to transform personal suffering into strength and wisdom. We will collaborate to establish clarity and direction in our therapy.

You may find that the unhelpful decisions all center around patterns meant to keep you safe. Together, we can work on increasing your sense of security and recognizing which patterns are no longer working. I am trained in EMDR, Internal Family Systems Therapy, and Sensorimotor Therapy.

EMDR Therapists
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an information processing therapy that helps clients cope with trauma, addictions, and phobias. During this treatment, the patient focuses on a specific thought, image, emotion, or sensation while simultaneously watching the therapist's finger or baton move in front of his or her eyes. The client is told to recognize what comes up for him/her when thinking of an image; then the client is told to let it go while doing bilateral stimulation.

If you're looking for EMDR therapy in San Jose or for a San Jose EMDR therapist these professionals provide EMDR therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing and EMDR treatment. They include EMDR therapists, EMDR psychologists, EMDR psychotherapists, and EMDR counselors.
