I help you create the life you want by providing gentle support and encouragement towards your goals. Coming to me for counseling means you’ll have a safe place to go to talk things out with our judgment and start finding solutions. We’ll work together and you’ll learn how to feel better about yourself and improve your relationships.
I provide individual and couples therapy in San Jose, California and online counseling to California residents. If you are struggling with anger management, relationship difficulties, 12 step recovery and substance abuse, or low self-esteem I can help.
Finding the right therapist is the first step, and if we’re not a match, I’ll do my best to give you an excellent referral. Every therapist has a slightly different approach and personal style. If you’ve had a bad counseling experience before, please feel free to ask questions. It’s so important that you feel comfortable before making a decision.
I believe in the process of growth because, with the right kind of support, you can make small but significant changes. Therapy doesn’t have to take years to work. There are simple skills that make a difference quickly.
Sometimes, it’s learning about self-care or how to communicate without screaming, saying no without feeling guilty, and building a healthy support system. These are all areas I focus on though because each person is unique, we’ll focus our work on what’s most important to you. You can learn how to live a more fulfilling life, one day at a time, by getting the support you deserve.
