"Let's have the conversation that changes your life. I help gifted problem solvers overcome the challenges (and clean up the messes) they tend to create. I'm The Silicon Valley Therapist, a former engineer with genuine people skills. I'm fluent in both English and Nerd, and can bridge the abyss between them. Would insight, compassion and inspiration help? My esoteric blend of experience, skill and humor enables individuals to thrive and couples to reconnect. I work with HiTech professionals and the Super-Intelligent (and those trying to love them). What does "doing better" mean to you right now?"

"Working at Stanford University and the University of California, Berkeley, helped me to develop these three recommendations for finding a therapist: 1) Find the "best fit" by meeting with (or calling) two or three therapists. Research suggests that the relationship you develop with your therapist determines therapy outcomes/benefits. Trust your judgement; pick a therapist that you like. 2) When contacting therapists, ask what experience they have working with your particular concerns. If their response does not increase your comfort, find another therapist. 3) Consider your preferred therapist demographics, such as age, ethnic-racial identity, and gender."

"Many of the people who reach out to me for therapy describe themselves as disheartened and distressed with some major part of their lives. Some feel sadly disconnected in their intimate relationship with a primary partner or spouse. Others feel they can't find a way to communicate and connect with a parent, child or sibling. Other people want relief from feeling anxious, depressed or overwhelmed by stress. What they all have in common is a genuine desire to feel more deeply connected in their relationships and to live more fully and with greater ease. Does this sound like you?"

"Welcome! I offer short-term and long-term models of psychotherapy for individual adults of all ages and walks of life. I work with a wide range of people who come to therapy for different reasons wether it be symptoms of mood dysregulation such as anxiety or depression, issues related childhood or adult trauma, relationship challenges, dealing with a chronic health condition, a major loss or life transition, or wether it is simply for personal growth and healing. Regardless of the reason that calls a person to seek therapeutic support, my over 15 years of clinical experience have taught me that the heart of the process that unfolds in psychotherapy can be boiled down to a few key principles that apply to most peoples journey of gaining a better degree of psychological wholeness and health. My integrative approach to psychotherapy draws from a number of different schools of thought in the field including classical psychoanalytic/psychodynamic theory, humanistic psychology, Jungian archetypal psychology, CBT/mindfulness based practices, and solution focused therapy.
