I help parents navigate through difficult times with kids and family life.
Tele-health appointments offered durning COVID-19 Shelter-in-Place. I believe counseling is about finding meaning and purpose in our lives; about experiencing a deep level of self-trust; and about healing broken relationships. I use a solution focused approach inviting you to view your problems from a different angle. We'll focus on what things you can control and how to let go of circumstances beyond your control. I invite you to identify the sources of internal dialogue that generate self-doubt, anxiety and depression. Each week you will leave with small assignments designed to increase your self-awareness and self-confidence.

What would you give to feel excited about your career, family, friends, or hobbies again? I enjoy blending mind & body healing modalities to help clients achieve wellness at all levels.
Have you attained success in your life, only to find that you feel resentful and burnt out? As a high achiever, it’s confusing to suddenly feel disconnected from the passion that has always driven you. Maybe this dissatisfaction has been slowly growing over the years & you’ve been able to manage it. But now you’re finding it harder to feel interested in your work or relationships. You may also be feeling exhausted & curious why your skills simply aren't working anymore. The habitual stress associated with being a powerful go-getter can also lead to a variety of health problems that medical doctors aren’t skilled at addressing.

I am one of the few practitioners trained in Organizational Development as well as Marriage and Family Therapy, and specializing in business and co-founder partnership coaching.
Are you disillusioned and asking yourself how your working relationship got this bad or hard? You and your business partner had a great business idea and decided to launch a business together. It seemed so promising at first. Even more so if your partner is also your friend, sibling, or spouse. You knew there would be ups and downs. Now that you are mid-stream, the business is bringing out the stressed and critical sides of both of you more than ever. It feels overwhelming and at times, unbearable. And yet, you are under the gun to make it work.

Family Therapy
If you're looking for family therapy in Los Altos or for a Los Altos family therapist these professionals provide family therapy services and structural family therapy services. They include family therapists and marriage family therapists. Therapists in Los Altos using the techniques of 'family therapy' (also referred to as marriage and family therapy and family counseling) view change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members.

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.
