About My Practice
If you are struggling in your marriage, with your partner, or with anxiety, I would love to help!
I work with couples and adult individuals. We all have our own unique strengths and challenges. It would be my honor to move along with you on your journey toward your goals and a more meaningful life experience.
I am an Associate Marriage Family Therapist (AMFT) under excellent supervision with Maor Katz, MD psychiatrist and founder of FGI. I grew up in the Bay Area from immigrant parents so I have a deep respect for your cultural experiences. I can relate to and understand that different cultural norms exist. I'm a mother of an older teenager and an emerging adult and have been married for over 20 years. All this feeds my interest in marital/pre-marital couples therapy and how to maintain a lifelong loving relationship. Additionally, in a past career, I worked in Silicon Valley tech as well as in a competitive university, so I have an appreciation and understanding of those worlds and those who work in them.
EXPERIENCE AND TRAINING
I specialize and am passionate about working with couples using evidence and research based couples therapies. I use Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). I act as a process consultant helping clients see how they are getting stuck in problematic patterns that keep them disconnected. Together we explore the underlying issues and blocks. Clients can expect me to help choreograph a different kind of interaction that move you to feel more emotionally safe and secure with your partner. I also pull on other evidenced based couples therapy methods like Gottman method and TEAM CBT.
I have specialized training and experience in working with Anxieties, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) , Exposure Response Prevention (ERP), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Somatics and Mindfulness.
As with the other therapists at FGI, I am trained in TEAM CBT which is the cognitive behavioral therapy based framework that our office specializes in. I am certified as an advanced TEAM CBT therapist level 3. Developed and refined by David Burns, MD for over 40 years, this structure is effective and goal oriented particularly if you are willing to metaphorically "roll up your sleeves" and work with me as a team to learn methods that you will take with you for the rest of your life. At times, it may be hard work but it is so worth it and you won't be doing it alone. FGI therapists practice many types of therapy but the thing we all have in common is we are all trained and certified in a framework for conducting therapy that includes the processes known to be most effective.
I am certified in CBT-i for Insomnia with the Jacobs protocol for adults. I continue to train and be supervised in Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples. I also am trained Level 1 in The Gottman Method for couples. I continue to receive additional training in OCD and Anxiety. I continually engage in additional learning with a focus on evidence and research based approaches.
