My Approach to Helping

Sometimes we need a partner to help us through our journeys. When life is challenging, you need someone who allows you to talk without judgment, someone who compassionately offers new ideas and a fresh perspective, who isn't afraid of the dark and complicated places of life. You deserve someone who is excited to partner with you, and who will work hard to find the answers you seek.

I'd like to be that person for you. I know how tough it is to face life's challenges. I also know how to overcome difficulties and create a full, satisfying, and blessed life.

I believe everyone's transformation process requires a holistic integrated approach. I provide a mind-body methodology where you experience whole-person change using the latest research from the fields of Mindfulness, Neuroscience, Somatic Therapy, and Positive Psychology. I'll help you feel more excited, hopeful, engaged, and confident to manage life's obstacles. Together we'll work to help you move beyond avoidance, anxiety, and negativity.

My clients often tell me that their work with me exceeded their expectations. I offer a safe place to process confusing events. I teach you how to nurture change, offer gentle but honest feedback, and bring a transparent authenticity to a life lived successfully with vitality and Joy.

More Info About My Practice

I am a licensed doctor of psychology in California and board certified coach. I also hold additional certificates inComplementary and Alternative Medicine and 500-hour Advanced Yoga Instruction. For 15 years, I've worked with diverse clients including teachers, engineers, scientists, small business owners, medical professionals, parents, college, high school, and graduate students, and more.

Before becoming a coach and therapist, I was a web developer and process consultant at Accenture. I also managed special events and fundraising at the YMCA. I've been married for 18 years, and have twin sons and a daughter. I've spent a combined 24 years learning about dance and yoga, which has taught me greatly about integration and the mind-body connection.

In my own life, I've learned to successfully face challenges and life abundantly. I understand your search for solutions and answers, especially in the culturally varied and high-stress environment many people encounter in Silicon Valley. You need practical solutions for life's challenges. I'm thrilled to partner with you to help you develop new ways of experiencing your life, moving toward personal growth, and achieving goals.

I offer a free 20-minute phone consultation to answer your questions and typically provide a suggested treatment approach. Please call today!
