You're too fucking old to not have relationships figured out. But lately, you've started to wonder if it's just normal to feel invisible, if it's even possible for you to have a relationship that makes you want to sing. When you show up as yourself the way the latest Buzzfeed article tells you to, all you hear is that you're too much and nothing changes. Now you just find yourself shutting down, keeping as out of the way as possible. You’re tired of feeling scared that your partner will leave or even worse, that she'll stay and you’ll be stuck feeling this way forever. Breathing deeply and stretching into your skin feels impossible.

You deserve to feel safe, connected, and understood and have deserved this for a very long time. It hurts when you think about that that you sought connection and comfort from someone important in your life, but did not get what you needed. It can be hard to describe the impacts of these experiences or the toll it took on you to grow up with important needs unmet. If this description speaks to you then you may benefit from healing work around relational trauma and Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

I specialize in Infertility & Reproductive Loss Counseling. My own experience with infertility led me to focus on supporting those working to build their families. Tying my education and training with my own insight as an infertility patient, I deepen my role as a therapist for those grappling with the In/Fertility world. My personal story to parenthood has allowed me insight into the physical, emotional, social, relational, and financial struggles that infertility can create in one’s life. Now I focus on supporting those who are going through this uncertain and life-changing season of their lives.

Sometimes the hardest thing is to forgive yourself, or forgive others for what has happened. It can really keep you stuck in the same cycle, over and over, depressed, and anxious. It is like kryptonite; it keeps you from living the life you want to live, and from discovering the superpowers you have inside of you. What would happen if you could use those superpowers? What would happen if you were to feel your enthusiasm again? Where would you go, what would you do, what new skills would you like to learn?

To everyone around you, it looks like you've "got it together." But deep inside, you feel like an impostor. Even though your life looks great on the surface, you feel anxious, as if it could all fall apart at any moment. You'd like to be more authentic, but you worry about what would happen if other people knew the "real" you. What would happen if you really lived your TRUE self in the world? Yikes! That scares you, so you put on an act. But the act is getting exhausting. Sometimes, you wonder if you've spent so much time faking it that you've lost sight of your true self altogether.

My passion is working with those who keenly feel and live with the pain of not being "enough," or of being defective in some way. There's a variety of reasons that people come to suffer in this way, including the impact of childhood experiences, discrimination, and living within systems that encourage disconnection from ourselves and others. My approach is to work collaboratively to bring light and healing to hidden wounds. Far from being "too much to handle," learning to care for these tender parts is the path towards greater freedom, connection, and possibility.

One of the bravest things that you can do is to begin to understand your own story and accept yourself for who you truly are and where you came from. This is a necessary step before you can become the person you want to be. From trauma to depression to anxiety, every challenge is not an isolated event, but a story that is connected to your past, present and future. And these challenges can make you feel stuck, lost, angry, afraid and sad. Life is too short to surrender to a dreadful job, hold grudges, let anxiety/anger control us, and being frustrated all the time. You deserve a meaningful-filled life.

In this hyperconnected world, people feel more isolated than ever before. Many of my patients have achieved some some success in the external world, often at the expense of their own self-care and relationships. Life is not as fulfilling as they had imagined it would be. Some have tried self-help books or past therapy, but something got missed and they want a more thoughtful approach.

Teletherapy
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Palo Alto, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Palo Alto listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
