My decades of experience enable me to bring objectivity, knowledge, and compassion to our task of uncovering your truth and your path to individual and relational health. As a psychology professor I stay current with new research. I use a diverse set of tools to help you achieve your goals: IFS, CBT, EMDR, trauma-informed therapy, and Neurofeedback. I am a communications expert who uses powerful tools to implement research-backed processes to help your relationships thrive.

I employ an integrative approach to treatment based on the needs of the individual, with a primary focus of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
Deciding to seek help for yourself or a loved one takes courage and strength. I believe that each individual has the capacity to grow and change throughout the life span. My training and experience can assist you in recognizing patterns that may no longer be serving you, and in clarifying your values. As you learn what values are important to you, these values can serve as a compass no matter how difficult life becomes. I am interested in working with people who are open to deep inquiry, and understanding more about themselves and the way that they are navigating life.

WAIT... I live in SILICON VALLEY. Shouldn't I be happy?!?! You're tired of going through the motions, working long hours in a job that absorbs all of your energy. Everyone expects you to be happy, but inside you're struggling. Waking up takes everything you've got. You put in long hours at the office, but you feel deflated and unfulfilled. "Why am I doing this? What's the point?" You want more than just "meh." from your life and your work. IT'S TIME TO WAKE UP WITH PURPOSE, MEANING & FULL COMMITMENT.

I respect and honor your wish to find someone to work with; a traveling companion for the road you are on.  I know this first step is a hard one.  I’ve been in your shoes too. Here is what I have learned: connection matters. Feelings matter. Knowing, that someone sees how hard it can be, matters. And yes, expertise matters. If you’ve gotten this far then you are likely wondering- could this person possibly be my/our therapist? Will she understand me/us? Will she care? Can she help?

Sometimes having compassion for ourselves is much harder than extending compassion to others. It’s difficult when we are dealing with thoughts that convince us we are broken or stuck, or when we are facing issues that seem larger than us, issues that appear beyond what our personal power can handle. Along with these thoughts of uncertainty come feelings such as anxiety, sadness, shame, and grief, all of which we struggle to avoid. This can make living a valued existence appear difficult or impossible. Yet it is. You don’t need to go it alone. I can see that power within you, even if you are unable to see this in yourself.
