I primarily use evidence-based treatments such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Interpersonal Process Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Gottman Methods.
Are you feeling stuck? Does your life feel overwhelming? Are you having a difficult time coping? I would like to support you in leading a fuller and more meaningful existence. As your therapist, I will help you cope more effectively with your problems by challenging your routine thought processes, identifying typical response patterns, and learning effective ways of behaving. You can expect to discover new insights about yourself and feel empowered to make changes that align with your values. The eventual goal is for you to translate what you learn in therapy into daily living, and find healing amidst adversity.

I combine Trauma-Focused CBT, Motivational Interviewing, EMDR, and Solution-Focused Therapy to target feelings of dread, abandonment, isolation, anxiety, and chronic pain.
Are you experiencing anxiety, depression, anger issues, and relationship issues due to childhood trauma? In my practice, I use a systemic approach in which I meet you where you are from session-to-session in order to provide a sense of comfort, trust, and understanding with my clients. I see healing as a sine wave; there are ups-and-downs, but we're always on an upward trajectory. It is my commitment to walk with you through your growth with a focus on always providing the safety and support that your healing requires.

I also provide competency-based training to psychotherapists in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for Depression, CBT for Insomnia, Motivational Interviewing, and Prolonged Exposure for PTSD.
Even in moments when what we were born with (i.e., nature), how we were raised (i.e., nurture), or our capacity to act in our best interests (i.e., abilities) may seem to come up short in dealing with life's challenges, each of us has the capacity to compassionately challenge ourselves to get to where we want to be. A psychotherapist can be a partner in the journey to understanding and accepting what needs to be done, and taking the necessary steps for change to happen.

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. San Jose Motivational Interviewing is frequently used in cases of problem drinking or mild addictions. Check these therapists for Motivational Interviewing in San Jose.
