About My Practice

 Excessive anxiety and depression or another form of distress may be robbing you of simple, everyday pleasures.  These weighty feelings have become or always were intrusive, occupying too much of your mental space. Yet, you wouldn’t be reading about my practice if you had no hope and determination, both critical elements to feeling better. Having an effective therapist also greatly impacts the therapeutic process and outcome. Finding the right match can often be very challenging. 

   I incorporate the evidence-based methods of CBT into a mindful and compassionate approach, emphasizing the client’s needs and unique life circumstances. I want to help you recover so that you can fully and joyfully embrace life, with its multifaceted experiences and opportunities. We’ll collaborate.  To ensure the therapy succeeds, you'll complete mood surveys and give me feedback each session and do brief assignments between them. 

 I treat children and teenagers, ages 5-18, college students, including first generation, and other adults. One of my passions is supporting caregivers of loved ones navigating severe mental illness. My background includes volunteering for more than two years for the National Association of Mental Illness (NAMI) as a trained support group facilitator for family and friends of people navigating schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and other relatively severe conditions. I continue to help caregivers find balance in their lives. I also see clients with those challenges who are in recovery. Finally, I enjoy working with people from multicultural backgrounds and the LGBTQIA+ communities, and neurodiverse individuals. I am especially effective with creative, imaginative people seeking to move beyond their emotional comfort zones.

 In addition to a counseling degree from Palo Alto University, my educational background includes a PhD in East Asian Studies from Princeton University (Japanese literature with minors in Japanese premodern history and Chinese and Japanese Buddhism). I've lived in China and Japan.
