I offer individual psychotherapy to adults struggling with a number of stressors or mental health issues who are motivated to improve their lives. I specialize in treating a range of clinical problems, including:
Stress related to work and family environments
Depression, low mood, and low self-esteem
Anxiety Disorders such as:
- excessive worrying - panic attacks - social anxiety - specific fears or phobias
Trauma and post-traumatic stress
Interpersonal and intimate relationship difficulties
Unhelpful habits such as procrastination and perfectionism
Life transitions or critical decisions
Career difficulties and work-life balance
Behavioral management in the context of chronic diseases
In addition to individual and group therapy, I have extensive experience advising, coaching, and mentoring professionals in both early-stage and established businesses in a range of fast-paced industries. I am integrally familiar with the stresses of living and working in Silicon Valley and specialize in facilitating change, finding balance, and overcoming career challenges commonly faced by high-achieving professionals. I support individuals actively engaged in the workforce as well as those pursuing non-traditional career paths, volunteering, or temporarily caring for families.
I also have expertise working with clients from diverse backgrounds and welcome individuals from different cultures or countries of origin into my practice. For those who are more comfortable in their native languages, I also offer psychotherapy in Spanish and Portuguese in addition to English.
My fees are comparable to other psychologists in the area. Assessment and therapy sessions are billed at the same rate. Payment is due by credit card or electronic payment at the time of the session. I have a 24-hour cancellation policy. If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and have not notified me in advance, you will be requested to pay the full cost of the session.
Please note that I do not accept insurance. However, if you are covered by a PPO insurance provider, I am happy to provide a statement that can be submitted to your insurance for possible reimbursement. You may also want to consider using a flex spending account (associated with your primary insurance) or a health savings account (HSA) to cover your psychotherapy fees.
If you’re interested in discussing your needs and finding out if I may be able to assist you, please email me or contact my office at (650) 434 3455.
