Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I believe that each of us comes to form a sense of our self based on our early experiences and the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors ingrained by such experiences. I also understand that our environment has a great influence on us and know that each of us possess an innate strength for healing. Subsequently, in working with clients, I consider early life experiences (Object Relations); age and life transitions (developmental theories); the impact of the environment and the family unit (systems theory); the role of thoughts, feelings, and actions (Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy); and client’s resources (Solution-Focused Therapy). In addition, I frequently utilize exploration, psycho-education, task-assignment, and play and/or art activities.

About My Practice

Office Hours
After school
In addition to being a school-based clinical counselor working with high school students with Emotional Disturbance I am in private practice in Palo Alto providing clinical counseling for children, adolescents, parents, families, and, occasionally, adults. I have a deep passion for working with youth and parents and have had the pleasure of working with children, adolescents, adults, families, parent-child units, and couples from varous cultural backgrounds.
