Drawing from practices in innovation, positive psychology, and behavioral science, I’ve developed simple yet powerful techniques to help people change and grow. I’m the creator of the Stanford University class “Do It Anyway! Creating a life of passionate action” and the author of the book “Fail Fast, Fail Often: how losing can help you win”, an Oprah editor's choice selection. My work has been featured in the New York Times, NPR, and The Atlantic. As a therapist, I’m compassionate, warm and practical. I enjoy taking the time to understand and appreciate my clients, while empowering them with modern tools to promote rapid change. My approach to therapy is strength-based, collaborative, and founded on the principle that everyone deserves a joyful and fulfilling life. My areas of expertise include anxiety, depression, trauma, ADHD, life purpose, and marital and couples counseling. I also have broad experience working with technical founders, executives and engineers.
