Background

Welcome
Thank you for visiting my page. I am a licensed marriage and family therapist practicing in San Jose, CA. I practice utilizing elements of Narrative Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. I am also trained in CBT and DBT therapeutic practices. I seek to meet you where you are and collaboratively identify and meet your therapeutic goals, while building a therapeutic relationship to bring comfort and trust to the therapy room. As trust grows, so does the ability to dive deep into what might be troubling the you or you. Therapy can help you develop new perspectives or skills to cope with difficulties. I value your cultural story and your experience navigating society. Our shared place and time is where you can mention the unmentionables, seek to understand yourself and others, and write a new story that honors the past and brings preparation for the future. Send me a message or give me a call and let's get started, for you.
