I am a CBT Therapist and a DBT Therapist (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) who helps silicon valley executives, professionals and their spouses manage the challenges of strong emotions, complicated relationships, and mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, and bipolar. I have an executive business background which is helpful for those who want to work with someone who understands their day to day business in corporate or professional life. I specialize in working with executive women and men who often have conflicting emotions about seeking consultation, and need a therapist who is direct, pragmatic, and solution focused. I work with individuals and couples who are going through extreme stress and tough situations such as affairs, betrayal, or the mental illness of a family member. Many people have difficulty managing strong emotions. I can help you regain control, improve your relationships, become composed, relaxed, and effective. If you are someone who is quiety in despair, struggling to manage intense anxiety, depression or stress, I can help you learn the skills to keep functioning and build the life you want. I teach you empirically supported tools and strategies to help alleviate symptoms of stress, and help you intervene in your own life and relationships. I use best practice treatment protocols flexibly in order to customized a plan just for you. I help leverage your strengths so you can get through this difficult time. It takes courage to make the decision to change your life.
