San Jose Office
I work with a wide range of people who are often feeling stuck or overwhelmed facing life’s challenges. My clients are often looking for support, insight, and tools to help them cope with problems. My areas of expertise include working with mood disturbances, anxiety, child and adolescent issues, behavior problems, life changes, relationship issues, and multicultural issues.
I believe that therapy works best with a collaborative partnership. Whatever problems you may be facing, I understand that beginning therapy can be intimidating and that it takes courage and dedication to make changes. I strive to meet you where you are and provide a warm, genuine, and empathic environment where you can feel safe to express yourself. Typically I utilize short term therapy approaches based on best practices to meet your goals.
WHY I LOVE THIS WORK
I enjoy working with people to help untangle and address the issues that impact them. I find it rewarding to be a part of the process through which people see meaningful changes in their lives, and am repeatedly inspired by the strength and perseverance of the people I work with.
WHAT I WANT FOR YOU
My aim is to ultimately increase clients' resiliency to face life’s stressors independently. I work with clients to increase their ability to make mindful choices and concrete behavioral changes in line with their values. To this end, I help my clients learn coping skills, navigate relationships, and modify patterns of thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, to achieve measurable goals.
MY SPECIALTIES, BACKGROUND, AND PERSONAL INTERESTS
I specialize in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and integrate Mindfulness-Based Therapy and Family Therapy based on individual needs. In my work with children and adolescents, I collaborate closely with families to help develop a strong foundation to nurture youth.
I have worked as a clinician for the past decade serving children and adults aged 2-95 in diverse settings including university clinics, outpatient hospital clinics, rehabilitation hospitals and in family homes. My research interests have included the interaction of identify and performance in technology companies, social belonging and social support, ADHD, depression, and trauma therapy.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, travelling, eating too much chocolate, singing, reading, and dancing.
