Practice Description: Are you successful yet sad and self-critical? Do you feel frustrated with your repeated efforts to overcome fear, anxiety or shame when it comes to asserting yourself? As a humanistic therapist for 39 years and as someone who has been there, I have the experience and expertise to help you undo the patterns, pain and inner conflicts which keep you from having the choices you want as well as the confidence, well being and aliveness that feel missing . I offer a FREE confidential 30 minute initial phone assessment so we can discuss your issues and needs to see if we are a match. Sometimes it takes opening up with a caring, empathic and skilled therapist whose only goal is to get you to the place where you feel resolved, empowered, and have made the changes that you want.

I primarily work with high functioning people who are stuck and at a loss as to why they are not moving forward in their lives. A lot of my clients appear to be doing very well looking from the outside, but are struggling with pain and conflict on the inside. Most of them have already done a lot of personal growth, but still find themselves unhappy or feeling a void. I help them find the source of their pain, reconsolidate emotional learnings, gain self acceptance and legitimacy, and make new decisions in order to live their best lives.

You may have tried talking to your friends or family, but realize you need more expertise. This can be a very difficult place and it doesn't have to be like this for you. Please don't wait one more day. Call me for your FREE consultation at 408-356-0677.

Fee Schedule: My fee is $140 for a 60 minute hour. I often schedule 90 minute sessions with couples and individuals when needed or requested.
Insurance and Billing Instructions: I expect to be paid at the time of service. I don't bill directly through insurance, however I do accept all major credit cards as well as
checks. I also provide my clients with an insurance ready statement so they can seek reimbursement on their own if they have the ability to do that. It is important to know that a Mental Disorder Diagnosis is necessary in order to receive reimbursement. I cannot guarantee such a diagnosis and I don't want to give you a Diagnosis in order to receive payment for my services.

Driving Directions: My office is at the corner of Los Gatos Blvd. and Farley Road. You can take the Lark Avenue exit from HWY 17 or you can take the East Los Gatos Exit from HWY 17. I am between Blossom Hill Road and Los Gatos Almaden Road.

Additional Comments: I have had the privilege to help individuals, couples and families for over three decades now. I continue to be inspired by my courageous clients. I continue to learn from them. I love the opportunity and the challenge to help and support people to face their problems, their limiting patterns and beliefs, their fears, and their pain as well as to facilitate the growth and transformation my clients are seeking. Our capacity to change, our ability to heal, and our inner wisdom keep me optimistic and determined to help those who come to me.
