About

I am particularly effective in working with bright and highly sensitive teens. During this pandemic, I believe that our most perceptive, sensitive adolescents are having the biggest mental health challenges with not seeing friends, family, and teachers on a more regular basis. I have extensive experience as a School Counselor in both private and public schools in the SF Bay Area. I also have designed and taught Social and Emotional Learning at several private schools. My ideal client is a teen facing the obstacles of anxiety, depression, learning challenges or social skills challenges at school or home.
I teach teens mindfulness based self-soothings skills that are highly effective for both anxiety and depression, especially during shelter in place and online learning. I also help teens learn about de-escalating conflict and conflict resolution, both at school and at home. We also practice tools based on Positive Psychology and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
I am a former research manager at the Stanford Center for the Study of Families, Children and Youth. I have a deep understanding of academic research around child and adolescent development. In addition, I am the parent (and spouse) of individuals with ADHD, Sensory Issues, Dyslexia, Anxiety and OCD.
