Individual, Couples and Family Therapy
While we can increasingly understand human suffering through science, healing human pain and fostering human joy is truly an art. I specialize in helping adolescents, adults, couples, and families who are struggling with anxiety, depression, and trauma resolution. I am a cisgender, white female who enjoys working with clients from various cultural backgrounds, gender identities, and sexual orientations. I continue to expand my multicultural competence through both independent study and the wisdom and experience that my clients share with me. While I am conversational in Spanish, my language skills are not sufficient to provide therapy in Spanish (yet!). That said, I am happy to perform a free consultation in Spanish. Once I have an understanding of their needs, I will do my best to connect any monolingual Spanish speaker to appropriate services within the community.
Mental health coaching and presentations
When I am not seeing clients, I enjoy returning to my tech roots to provide mental health presentations and workshops that empower Silicon Valley individuals, teams and companies to be as healthy, innovative and effective as they can be. I use a combination of psychoeducation and practical interventions that empower people to make real changes in their lives, outside of the therapeutic setting. From trauma processing, to building a healthy relationship, to being the best parent, partner or boss possible, I find that starting with the science can be normalizing and validating, giving participants the courage to experiment with some of the healing arts techniques that have helped me (and my clients) to grow and thrive. It is such an honor and privilege to share these insights and tools, passing them along to others.
