I work in partnership with all clients as you're the ones actually doing the hard work of change! Using such strategies as harm reduction, motivational interviewing, CBT, Brainspotting, and more as well as nutrition/exercise to support the brain/body, I'll help you find a way that works for you.
"I see things differently." I see you fully able to achieve your goals. I see you as one who likely needs a non-judgmental place to talk about things: your future goals, how drug/alcohol use, etc fits w/that future, & how you see yourself getting there: abstinence, sober curious. moderation. I'm a collaborator, one who's committed to listening deeply & providing a space to talk about anything, for individuals/families/all. I am not a therapist; my main focus is on today & tomorrow though we may visit the past. And I follow the science of change & addiction; it shows there's no one way to recover/change & that's great news!

I tend to use solution focus to identify what to work on, motivational interviewing to identify/discover the client's role in a situation, and cognitive behavioral techniques to learn new ways to handle situations.
As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I’ve worked with couples, families, children and adolescents, and groups. While I help my clients address the issue(s) they present when coming into therapy, I also help them learn new skills and ways of interacting with their environment that will help them resolve, and even avoid problem situations in their future. I’ve worked with a wide variety of presenting issues, most frequently involving trauma, anxiety, fear, depression and suicidal ideations, communication problems and difficult relationships, and parenting problems.

I am formally trained in Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral therapy addressing variety of complex life problems.
Who doesn't need therapy? Therapy is unique. It is a safe space where you can be completely who you are. Within the therapy relationship, you are able to say things that you have bottled up, you are given opportunity to identify your blind spots without judgment or shame, and you are able to attune to what you really want in life. I am a big believer in hearing your own voice, getting in touch with your values, and making decisions that align with what is important to you.

Maybe it is a major life event or role change, a spiraling negative thought pattern, mounting academic or career pressure, or parenting or relationship challenges. Whatever the reason, it takes courage to seek help and effort to imagine change and improvement. You have taken the first step.

Motivational Interviewing Therapists
Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a method of therapy that works to engage the motivation of clients to change their behavior. Clients are encouraged to explore and confront their ambivalence. Therapists attempt to influence their clients to consider making changes, rather than non-directively explore themselves. Palo Alto Motivational Interviewing is frequently used in cases of problem drinking or mild addictions. Check these therapists for Motivational Interviewing in Palo Alto.
