Are you not feeling like your usual self nowadays? Are stress, politics, work, relationship pressure, relocation and/or COVID-19 overwhelming? Is there just way too much going on? Are you looking to feel more calm, more relaxed, less upset, and more happy? Sometimes our brain won't turn off and stop worrying, sometimes it is difficult to get out of bed or get a good night's rest, other times it is tough to buckle down and focus. Therapy can help... even if you're not sure how. I see mental health as part of one's overall wellness. My approach focuses on having fewer negative emotions and also on experiencing more positive emotions.
I offer tools that research has demonstrated are very effective for reducing suffering. I also assist you in seeing meaningful, practical change by compassion, warmth, and empathy with a bit of humor. However, there is no cookie-cutter approach. We work together, openly and flexibly, to customize your treatment directly to your unique needs and strengths.
I frequently work with tech workers, high-achieving students and professionals, folks new to the Bay Area, new parents, and those coping with imposter syndrome, perfectionism, procrastination, and with worry and guilt. I have a particular skill in working with women, people of color, LGBTQ+ individuals and people new to therapy and welcome your questions!
