My Approach to Helping
Hello! I am a licensed psychologist in Redwood City, CA. I have been practicing as a therapist for children, couples, adults, and families since 2002. I can help you address your goals and improve your mental health while focusing on your unique strengths.
I would describe my style as warm, interactive, and collaborative. I usually integrate different therapeutic techniques and styles that have been proven to produce positive changes, depending on your situation and the problems you are addressing in therapy. I like to work with clients actively and directly to develop a treatment plan that works for you, while also sharing what clinical research has shown to be effective for each specific problem.
I enjoy helping children and adults of all ages, individually or in groups. I currently run three Dialectical Behavior Therapy groups for teens and young adults, as well as for adults on the ASD spectrum.
I currently provide individual and group psychotherapy. I have specialized experience and training in helping individuals with chronic pain syndromes, inflammatory brain disorders, and headaches. I also have advanced training in Imago Relationship Therapy, a form of couples therapy that focuses on effective communication strategies.
