My Approach to Helping

Do you try to push away upsetting thoughts and feelings, only to find that they keep coming back? Do you want to change aspects of your life or certain behaviors, but continue to fall back into old patterns? Or are you finding it hard to move forward after a traumatic experience?

I work with adult clients to increase insight into patterns of thinking and behavior, loosen the grip of painful emotions and overcome obstacles to change. I maintain a small private practice in Silicon Valley (currently tele-health only due to the pandemic), and am also a Clinical Assistant Professor at Stanford University, School of Medicine.

Please feel free to reach out to schedule a free, brief consultation call, or to schedule an appointment.
