Currently doing virtual/Zoom sessions with couples and individuals.

About me and my therapy practice

I work with individuals and couples.  Many are looking to understand and explore what is getting in the way of their own growth and more meaningful relationships. Is this you?

Whether single or in a committed relationship, and you might be in a place where you would like to connect more deeply (in friendships and with a partner). Or, you may have experienced a betrayal and loss through death or divorce, and you’re looking for meaning in your life and in your relationships.

So you’ve hit the wall! You are feeling empty, lost or betrayed. You yearn for closeness. Feelings of depression or anxiety are out of control.

Life happens. Along with all the good, there is also the very challenging.

We will work collaboratively  to help you find clarity to take the next steps you need to take in your life.

Practice description

To all my current and prospective clients

In light of the current concerns related to COVID-19 and the recent mandates of the Santa Clara County, I have transitioned solely to telehealth services until further notice. Please know that the health and wellness of my clients, as well as the extended community remain a priority.

Although I truly value the person-to-person experience, I feel so grateful to have this modern day alternative with online video-based sessions. As I see it, counseling must go on.

I would encourage everyone to:

be open to online therapy – Yes – I know it’s a new “normal” for the time being, and change is difficult (although not impossible) – so I would invite you to give it a try. Ongoing therapy promotes connection and support at this time, and it also provides a structure for ongoing relationships.

-  keep showing up for your ongoing sessions – to help you stay grounded and to continue the work you have invested so much time in already.

-  let me know how you’re doing – in the situation we are in, and in the sessions. I am committed to working with you in a flexible and adaptive manner.

- Please contact me directly – on my contact page – or by calling.

- I am so thankful for your patience and understanding during this temporary time of uncertainty. It is my hope and intention to resume normal therapy sessions as soon as it is safely possible. Till then I am happy to be a trusted online resource.

GUIDANCE FOR SELF CARE

It’s OK to feel ……(name the feeling overwhelmed, afraid, uncertain, confused)

It’s OK to take walks, naps and hot baths when you need it

It’s OK to give yourself permission to do things differently

It’s OK to take a breath

and Last but not least, It’s OK to seek help

In the meantime, STAY HOME, STAY SAFE. Re-Connect, Re-Kindle (your relationships) and Re-Cover.
