"I work from a psychodynamic, attachment-based, and relational lens. I have extensive experience with Depression, Anxiety, PTSD and trauma-informed approaches predominantly in communities of color. I identify as bi-racial (Hawaiian and White) woman and use the pronouns she/her/hers. My work in the last four years has been focused on children and youth of color in the Bay Area in both community-based and school-based approaches. I love therapy -- practicing it, participating in it, talking about it and above all being challenged, undone and then (hopefully) reoriented/reorganized by it. "

"Usually, a person is compelled to seek-out a therapist because of desperation: Desperation to extricate her/himself from depression, anxiety and or behaviors that contribute to conflict, or loneliness. Sometimes a person wants to be more successful in relationships or at work, A couple seeks-out a therapist because their frequent bickering has led to frustration, isolation and loneliness, and they don't know how get out of it. You may feel that your partner no longer values you. You need to be heard, valued and supported-to regain the closeness and understanding you once had."

"Feeling overworked, undervalued, or marginalized? Feeling pressured to perform? Deadlines are looming, and co-workers are frustrating. You wake up in the middle of the night anxious about work. Getting through it all has taken a toll and your health and relationships are suffering. It's hard to find the time and energy to process. If you know something has to change, but are not sure what, therapy can help you gain clarity about what's happening and how to move through it. It might seem like you're too busy for therapy, but investing in yourself can free up all the energy currently trapped by stress, fear, and worry."

"Many of the clients I work with have either lost or struggled to develop a sense of control in their lives and relationships– having fallen into destructive patterns of substance abuse/addiction and impulsive and/or self-harming behaviors. Others may be struggling with an excess of self-imposed control– leading to a sense of isolation and fear of taking healthy risks. Some are confronting a major life-transition, loss of identity, divorce, death of a loved one or faced with a pervading sense of meaninglessness. All are, in one way or another, seeking to increase their sense of personal agency and effectiveness in daily life. "

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in 94710, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 94710 are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 94710 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 94710 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 94710 or family therapy in 94710.
