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.

I focus on: eating disorders, trauma resolution / PTSD, adolescents in crisis, and elite athletes. As a psychodynamic therapist, my goal is to help clients uncover their true potential and lead a meaningful life; it's about having a life that becomes worth celebrating.

Just like life,therapy is both an adventure and a risk. As a therapist,I encourage you to focus on the concept of choice. Our lives are constantly filled with the need to make choices. Should you be in a relationship or leave one? Is your current job the right one for you? Can you learn how to accept and express your needs? Choosing a therapist can be very confusing, but choosing the right therapist can be crucial to living a happy and fulfilling life.Your therapist needs to be someone that understands you and someone that you can trust.

Finding a therapist is such a leap of faith. It is one of life's challenges that at a time when you might feel the most vulnerable, you also have the least information about whether someone can help! I'm told I'm good person to talk to if something is bothering you and you want to figure it out. I try to support that inner flame of resilience in the face of all the challenges. I am one of the founders of the Health at Every Size (HAES) and Body Positive movements. May you find a good match!

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Los Altos, 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 Los Altos are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Los Altos. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Los Altos

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