It's time to start feeling better. You've tried distraction, talking to friends. But like a ball pushed underwater, your feelings of anxiety, unhappiness, grief or sadness keep surfacing. Distress disturbs your life, relationships and sleep. Worst of all, these bad feelings, like a shameful secret, isolate you. It doesn't have to be this way. Asking for help to feel better is a sign of strength, not weakness. I am dedicated to helping individuals and couples recognize and overcome the obstacles between them and their dreams. Personal growth, intimacy and self-confidence are natural outcomes of successful therapy.

With counseling, each conversation is an opportunity to understand yourself, your partner (if applicable) and your choices better, improve relationships, laugh more and feel optimistic about your future. What would your life be like without distress? Together we can find out, working through the blocks, recognizing patterns and instilling hope.

I am the only Los Altos couples counselor with advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy, an empirically-validated method to alleviate marital distress. EFT goes beyond repairing rifts. Goals include fostering connection, personal growth and intimacy to create a safe haven for couples. I respect both partner's experience.
