My Approach to Helping

Knowing WHY is not always as important. Knowing HOW lets you create solutions.

Effective therapy uses approaches that allow you the use of your current strengths in developing more awareness on how to create solutions, feel good and calm down. Many patients have discovered that sometimes the "how" is more helpful than the "why." I have significant experience and advanced training in mindful cognitive behavioral, solution-focused and strategic therapies. I use relaxation techniques, clinical hypnosis, guided imagery and various other tools. Working collaboratively, we can generate a level of awareness and focus that often enables you to do something different for a change.

More Info About My Practice

I am the founder of the East Bay Center for Anxiety Relief.

We are a group practice of therapists who believe in mindful, efficient, and effective mental health therapy. We collaborate with you on what you want to change in your life.

Whether you want assistance with anxiety, depression, breaking a bad habit, addiction or relationships, we will guide you through a process that allows you to create lasting and sustainable change.

Our effective, research-based approach helps you to become your own therapist. The ultimate goal is for you to take customized tools and methods out of our office and into your daily life.

If you find yourself challenged with:

• Anxiety
• States of depression
• Conflict in your relationship or family
• Stressed-out teens
• Procrastination
• Insomnia
• Traumatic events

We are here for you.

We offer both in-person and secure online chat therapy sessions.
