Practice Description: I am a Behavior Therapist (CBT) who helps people learn skills and strategies to feel better and suffer less. I specialize in Dialectical Behavior Therapy and short term treatments that help people who have difficulty managing their emotions to regain control and improve their relationships. If you are someone who is quietly in despair, struggling to manage intense anxiety, depression or stress, I can help you learn the skills to keep functioning and build a great life. If you are anxious and worried or been depressed for awhile, there are many scientific strategies that can help you. I believe everyone who seeks helps is really very resilient- not weak. I work with you to leverage your strengths. It takes courage to make the decision to change your life. You may not have caused the problems you have today but you CAN solve them. Let me help. Call (408) 893-4032. I have a business background which is helpful for those who want to work with someone who understands their day to day business in corporate or professional life. I also work with lots of men and understand the conflicting emotions they often have about seeking consultation. I work with individuals and couples who are going through extreme stress and tough situations such as affairs, betrayal, or the mental illness of a family member. I'm pragmatic, solution focused, and more than a little bit irreverant. Most of all- I am hopeful.
