Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Families with teens commonly face struggles during times of transition and uncertainty. Parents are an amazing resource for their children and it takes courage to ask for help for their family. I have worked extensively with children, adolescents, and parents on overcoming obstacles related to cognitive, social and emotional needs. I help families work through difficulties including depression, anxiety, trauma, school adjustment, and family conflict. I supervise interns and I also provide presentations to parents, educators and administrators on topics related to mental health and wellness. I utilized evidence-based practice in psychotherapy to ensure effectiveness and create long-term change. Therefore, my perspective on issues is based on the latest research in psychology. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy is a proven method that I integrate with family systems theory and an ecological framework which looks at how the environment influences problematic circumstances. My approach is collaborative and so I work together with clients to establish goals and interventions during the course of therapy. I specialize in working with adolescents (pre-teens/teenagers) and their families, as well as couples therapy. I also provide in-home concierge clinical services throughout the Bay Area upon special request.
