I am a licensed psychotherapist specializing in counseling for adults and teenagers. I also work with athletes who want to improve their motivation and performance. Additional services include consultations for parents and educational professionals.
Embracing a collaborative and strength-based approach to counseling, I believe all people have the inherent ability to change. My role as a therapist is part of a collaborative team with the client, setting goals together and evaluating progress. My orientation is Cognitive (CBT), combined with my personal philosophy of mindfulness. I also work as a therapist in a local high school, where I have the honor and privilege of working with adolescents and a diversity of families.
I offer a complimentary initial phone consult. All of my counseling services are available in English or in Spanish. Offices are located in Berkeley and in Oakland.
