Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Castro Valley, CA
I believe in working collaboratively with my clients as we navigate the individual and collective challenges that they face in their lives. Life will always throw us difficulties, so sometimes our best way to find peace is through acceptance of the things we don't have the control to change. I work together with my clients to help them find clarity on what they can and want to change.
I have both personal and professional experience dealing with ADHD, and am versed in behavioral modification techniques to make the symptoms of ADHD more manageable for both teens and adults. I am also familiar with the ways that ADHD overlaps with other issues, such as mood challenges and social skills deficits, so I can work with you to find ways to live your life to the fullest without ADHD getting in the way.
I have years of experience working with clients with various levels of anxiety, and know how painful anxiety can be. In that moment when anxiety takes over, it feels like it consumes us and we can't escape. But there is hope. It's possible to reduce anxiety, with some changes in thinking and behavior, and compassionate support.
I have years of experience in different settings working with individuals with PTSD. I am also familiar in diagnosing and working with Complex PTSD. I am trained in working with trauma.
