My Approach to Helping

Do you feel stuck in patterns of thinking, behaving or relating to others that aren't serving you any longer? Do you try pushing upsetting thoughts and feelings away, but find that they keep coming back? Or are you finding it hard to move forward from a traumatic experience?

I am a Clinical Assistant Professor at Stanford University, School of Medicine, and I also maintain a small private practice where I work with clients on changing problematic patterns, cultivating acceptance over aspects of their experience which they do not have control, and identifying their values and moving towards what matters most.

If you this resonates with you, I invite you to reach out to schedule a free, brief consultation call, or to schedule a visit.
