Looking Within: Healing, Learning, and Growing

If you need to talk to someone urgently about suicidal thoughts, ideas or simply don’t know who to talk to, you can call Suicide and Crisis Hotline for Santa Clara County at 1-855-278-4294.
If you need to be assessed by a psychiatrist immediately, please go to the nearest Emergency Room at a hospital close to you.
The therapist and client meet for fifty-minute sessions on a weekly or as-needed basis. Together, they explore and work through stuck areas, conflicts, and patterns of dysfunctional behavior. People learn about healthier relating through better work-life balance and communication. Couples develop awareness into the subtle dynamics of their relationships. Parents gain different insights into their children’s behaviors.
Therapy can help people have more productive lives, improve relationships, and enjoy a richer quality of life.
Poor financial decisions are usually made when one is anxious. When a person is calm and able to look at long term financial health, the decisions made are very different from jumpy reactionary ones. Sadly, there are too many people who spend time looking at what is on sale that week instead of spending that same time looking at their financial plans.
One of the rewards of spending time and money on psychotherapy, beyond the immediate improvement in relationships, is a more conscious life. Being conscious on a day to day basis helps a person avoid anxious behaviors, and begin to consider and implement long term goals and plans – whether personal and family, work-life balance, health, parenting, or long term financial planning.
Sorry, I do not accept any insurance. My business is based on fee-for-service. If necessary, I can provide you with a monthly invoice to submit to insurance companies, but reimbursement to you depends on many things including your diagnosis, the plan your company has with the insurance company and the coverage you have.
If you should need me to talk to your physician, teacher, or other health professional, there will be a written consent form that needs to be signed.
Some of the individuals and couples have worked with me for up to 1 to 2 years, getting under and around traumas such as adoption, affairs, anxiety, depression, difficulty with their parents, anger and hopelessness in their intimate relationships, and obsessive-compulsive thinking. Other individuals, like some in senior positions in leading technology companies, attorneys, doctors, managers in the Tech world, women who run homes and families, and engineers have worked with me for more than 4 – 5 years, and their investment in the work has paid off in promotions, rapid success in their field, as well as much more financial and emotional success.
Some couples or individuals work with me for a few months and see their symptoms resolve when they can understand the roots of stresses and thus take better care of themselves. Some couples do use therapy to end their marriages when appropriate and I help them to get re-established in their lives. Many seek my help to get insight into building a better life.
I have worked with engineers, doctors, lawyers, licensed therapists, home makers, creative people, foster youth, artistic and creative people and those in the tech world. Many of my clients are not in a crisis when they come in, but in a space where they are dis-satisfied with their lives and want more for themselves and their families. Young couples have been wise to invest in pre-marital counseling to avoid larger mistakes down the road and also flag hot areas for them to be aware of.
Changes can be quick during crises and when not in crisis, small changes can add up to reduce deeper psychological conflicts, promote peace, reduce conflicts, and build stable relationships and lives.
Within the first few sessions, we can decide on the goals for the process and decide on resources to commit to the time and work together. This is a collaborative process and the goals can be flexible or limited as we decide. Thank you for your interest in my work.
I would expect you to be on time, and be mindful of my time and policies. The first few sessions may be more structured to help you to get into the process. After that, I hope you will speak about whatever thoughts come into your head during the session and let me help you to make sense of them even if you do not see it right away.
I consider our time and space together sacred and hold myself to the highest ethical ideals of my community of therapists.
