Tele-health appointments offered durning COVID-19 Shelter-in-Place. I believe counseling is about finding meaning and purpose in our lives; about experiencing a deep level of self-trust; and about healing broken relationships. I use a solution focused approach inviting you to view your problems from a different angle. We'll focus on what things you can control and how to let go of circumstances beyond your control. I invite you to identify the sources of internal dialogue that generate self-doubt, anxiety and depression. Each week you will leave with small assignments designed to increase your self-awareness and self-confidence.

Working with individuals who feel they need some extra support to tackle challenges that life throws at them is my passion. I believe that through the relationship and work between client and therapist, behaviors can be adjusted, relationships can be mended, unhealthy coping skills can be identified and reworked, and healthy change can occur. I create a safe, comfortable therapeutic environment where individuals can succeed in making positive growth in their lives. Taking a straightforward, honest, relaxed and empathetic approach to supporting clients frees clients to open up, discover their strengths and make the most of therapy.

I enjoy working with people who would like to change their relationship with problems in their lives, and gain power over these problems and their effects. I have extensive training and experience working with people affected by domestic violence, sexual assault, and eating disorders. In addition, I meet with people who are affected by chronic medical conditions and parent/teen conflict. I view people as having ideas about how they would like to be in life and in relationships; yet, problems can disconnect people from their ideas and identities, influencing them to act in unsatisfactory ways.

As a licensed psychologist with over 15 years of clinical experience, I see couples and individuals who want to improve their intimate relationships at home with their partner and children as well as their relational skills at work . I believe good therapy calls for sensitivity, authenticity, open-mindedness, and having your best interests at heart. I also think collaborative work is essential and that therapy is most effective when it provides a safe space for reflection as well as a challenge.

There are no mistakes in this vast mystery of life. Each ant, every shrub, the noble redwoods and the moon in all her faces— everything is guiding us towards blooming. There are the wounds of living, and there is the innate alchemy of transmuting pain into medicine for ourselves, for our families, and for the world. Together, let’s befriend the wilderness inside you— the lover you are born with, as Mestiza Latina elder Clarissa Pinkola Estes says. The daily waves that wash ashore with work and home, with family, friends, partners, as we seek the connection that is our mammalian nature.

Peer Relationships in Los Altos

Teens want to be with people their own age - their peers. During their adolescent years, teens and tweens often spend more time with their peers than with their parents. Through their peer relationships, they can be both connected and independent, as they grow away from their parents' images of them and develop identities of their own. Peers provide a place for accepting the feelings, thoughts and actions that come with the search for identity.

Positive Peer Pressure in Los Altos

The ability to develop healthy friendships and peer relationships depends on a teen's self-identity and self-esteem. Peer pressure can encourage your teen's energy and motivate your teen to conform to healthy behavior. Peers can act as positive role models and demonstrate constructive social behavior. Peers listen to, accept, and understand the frustrations, challenges, and concerns of being a tween or teenager.

Negative Peer Pressure in Los Altos

The need for acceptance, approval, and belonging can lead some teens or tweens to engage in risky behavior in order to fit in with a group-contrasting values they may otherwise reject.

Some teens harbor secret lives --including those who appear to be well-behaved, high-achieving teens when they are with adults -and engage in negative behavior when with their peers.
