Greetings and Welcome


I am a licensed marriage and family therapist and provide therapy for adults, adolescents and children, as young as 5 years of age. Although patients call for a wide range of reasons, the common concern for all is persistent difficulty in their personal, family and work relationships.

In a very real way, life is like a puzzle.  There are many, many pieces to choose from and we try to find those pieces that fit smoothly together.  However, life becomes troubling when what we have chosen (job, friends, exercise, alcohol, etc.) doesn't fit and the same problems seem to occur in one situation after another, making life seem even more frustrating and confusing.

Together we can think and wonder about the choices you have made. I work in a collaborative and thoughtful style with over 20 years of clinical training and experience. In the first several visits, I will listen closely to understand the scope of your most distressing issues before recommending a schedule of therapy.

I am experienced in helping patients deal with issues such as depression, anxiety, parenting, relationship troubles, trauma, career issues, and anger management.

I am glad that you found my website, and hope that you find helpful information about psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, play therapy, and counseling.

My office is located in West San Jose which is accessible to patients from San Jose, Santa Clara, Palo Alto, and surrounding communities.

I welcome calls to my private voicemail: 408-247-9399
