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.

I believe that the relationships we develop with significant people in our lives shape who we are, how we think about ourselves and how we act. I have a great deal of experience working with individuals and couples on a variety of issues such as depression, anxiety, communication, birth of a baby, parenting and general couples discord. I practice from a Systemic viewpoint, meaning that I emphasize the impact that we have on one another when in relationships and believe that change in any part of a relationship will lead to change in the relationship as a whole.

**I am currently accepting new phone and video clients** Symptoms are not just painful annoyances, they are signs that point us to unfinished discovery and growth. Although I do offer a path to feeling better, staying better takes a commitment to engaging in deeper work beyond easy answers. This work is enlivening and opens out onto new ways of thinking and being. I specialize in supporting those struggling with depression, anger, anxiety, trauma, and grief, who are driven to understand and live further into their unique truth. For those interested, I also specialize in dream analysis, which can greatly accelerate one’s progress.

Working with clients from all kinds of cultural and ethnic backgrounds is something I love doing. My first private practice was in Vienna, Ausria where I received referrals from the United Nations. My passion is in assisting with transformation. I custom-fit your sessions to what works best for you. When I experienced therapy as a client it involved much suffering; therefore I made a commitment to make therapy as comfortable, fun (laughter is a great healer) and as easy and efficient as possible. I think "out of the box" and work well intuitively.

You deserve to feel seen, heard, and to know you matter in your relationships. Connection is key to good mental health. Connection with ourselves, our romantic partners, our family, and our friends. Many of our issues can be traced back to our relationships. Whether it is a current relationship or trauma hanging around from our past experiences or childhood. I want to help you achieve the relationship you deserve (and you DO deserve it) whether that is with your partner, family, grieving the loss of a relationship, breaking negative patterns, making a decision about a relationship, or while dating and trying to find a partner.

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in San Jose using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.

As an approach to therapy, 'family therapy' (also referred to as family systems therapy, marital therapy, marriage therapy, marriage and family therapy, marital therapy and family counseling) views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members or couples.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.

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