Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Change is possible. We may at times find ourselves or our relationships stuck in painful self-limiting patterns. We may have an awareness of the problem, yet experience difficulty in bringing about the changes we want. We can find ourselves drifting away from truly engaging in life, our relationships, and in actualizing our true potential. In a safe and supportive environment we will establish a clear direction for our time together by exploring and creating goals. Our work may involve: uncovering and resolving self-limiting patterns and beliefs, increasing your connection with others through opening up communication and reducing conflicts, exploring ways to attain better balance in life, healing from old wounds, reducing feelings of depression and anxiety. Through this process my goal is for you to gain a greater sense of well being and ease, to gain increased perspective on yourself and your potential, to develop new skills, confidence, and trust in your ability to create real and sustainable change. My style is warm, supportive, intuitive, and at times directive. My approach is integrative, grounded in years of mindfulness based meditation practice; utilizing tools from several treatment approaches to fit your particular needs, many approaches, like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, have been empirically validated to create change. I work with individuals, couples, families and children.

About My Practice

Office Hours
Services
Many of my clients see me as an "out of network provider" and receive reimbursement from their insurance provider. I have two main areas of specialization. The first is in providing assessment and treatment for ADD/ADHD in Adults. With the discovery of Neuroplasticity (the recent discovery that the brain can grow and change throughout life, a process that prior to the last several years was believed to end in childhood), mindfulness techniques are being utilized increasingly to actually train the brain, like working out a muscle, to grow and develop in the very areas that are understood to be impacted by ADHD. I have studied mindfulness meditation since the early 1990’s in the US and in India and combine this training with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help Adults manage the symptoms of ADD/ADHD. I also hold degrees in Organizational Communication and management and apply my training in these areas to helping Adults with ADD/ADHD develop better systems of organization in areas such as task management, and scheduling. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ My second area of specialization is in working with children and caregivers of children affected by ADD/ADHD and oppositional behavior through Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), and Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation to pre-schools and daycares. Parent-Child Interaction Therapy is an empirically validated and clinically proven therapy method for treating behaviorally disordered children. PCIT has been designated by the National Institute of Mental Health, the prestigious Kaufman Report on child welfare, and by many national research universities such as the University of California at Davis, the University of Florida, and the University of Oklahoma as being one of the most effective methods today of working with children displaying behavior problems. Please visit my website on PCIT www.BayAreaPCIT.org for more information on this approach to treatment. Please contact me to schedule a free phone consultation. In addition to the areas of specialization listed above I also work extensively with adults struggling with depression, grief, anxiety and panic disorders, life transitions.

Are you stressed out? Do you sometimes find yourself snapping at your children? Would you describe your relationship with your husband as “distant”? Or do you feel like you are going to lose it if someone doesn’t give you a break? Being a mother, wife, or daughter can stretch us to our limits. During times like these it can feel like the world has been turned “upside down”. There is HOPE! You don’t have to figure this out alone. Let’s talk and see if I can help you make things “right side up” again.
