""Find stability, recovery and growth during life's challenges." The idea of 'going to therapy' evokes a variety of reactions. While some may be eager to see what therapy is all about and are ready for a journey of self-exploration, I tend to see people because they are struggling, they are in pain, they are grieving, feel misunderstood or are desperate for something to change. Demands are high in fast-paced Silicon Valley. Your struggles may be unseen by others--you may not know who to talk to about deeply felt concerns. I invite you into my practice."

"Things do not always turn out the way we hoped or planned. You may feel your life is not how you envisioned it to be. You may regret the choices you have made. You may be unhappy with your current circumstances, or perhaps after the loss of something meaningful in your life, you struggle to adjust. These are some of the issues that bring people to psychotherapy. I explore with my clients the root causes of disappointment, hopelessness and emptiness. Together we look for ways to overcome barriers and search for what can bring meaning and joy to their lives."

"Sometimes compassion for ourselves is so much harder than extending compassion to someone else. It’s difficult when we are dealing with thoughts that are convincing us of our brokenness or stuckness, of dealing with issues that seem larger than us or what our personal power can handle, and experiencing the feelings related to these thoughts of uncertainty, 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."
