San Jose, CA 95128

What types of services do you offer? What issues do you specify treatment for?

I see adult individuals, providing depth psychodynamically-oriented psychotherapy. I work with couples utilizing an Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) approach. Additionally, I provide play therapy for children, and a systems-oriented psychodynamic approach to working with families. I work "relationally" with all of my patients. I work with trauma of all sorts and severities, with goals of integrating these traumatic experiences, and empowerment.

What therapy modalities do you use in your practices?

Individual, psychodynamic, relationally oriented psychotherapy; EFT for couples; play therapy, including SandPlay with children; psychodynamically-oriented family systems therapy. 

When should one seek treatment?

One ought to seek therapy when in distress/suffering, and when motivated to make the commitment to frequent, regular therapy sessions...which will facilitate internal shifts and lasting external change.

Why should someone choose to come to your practice?

If one is "ready" (see above), and wants to work with an experienced therapist who never forgets she's a human being, and who comes across as a real person, then I am a good choice.

What relationship exists between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you provide for someone suffering with either and/or both?

Substance use/abuse is a coping mechanism that, as all coping mechanisms, can become overused/habitual/harmful. Trauma, depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues often lead to substance use/abuse, and substance use/abuse can exacerbate mental health issues. I work with patients at all stages of recovery from substance abuse and trauma/mental health issues, referring them to additional resources (psychiatrists, rehab programs, MDs, 12-step groups, etc) as appropriate.

What therapy approach(es) do you utilize? What issues do you specify treatment for?

I use pieces of different approaches, but my core approach is object-relations, and how the Menu of Internalized Inadequacies causes unhealthy patterns in attachment and self-regulation. I use this approach with individuals, couples, and families.

The issues that appear in most clients are unsatisfying relationships and unhealthy coping patterns. Most are seeking external efficacy or fulfillment in unbalanced relationships, work, alcohol, substances, electronic reality, etc. These are usually rooted in a fractured self and learned in their family-of-origin.

How does one know if therapy is right for them?

You know that therapy is right for you, when you have an innate sense that you no longer wish to continue with an unsatisfying “management” in your life, and know that you want some form of “leadership” in navigating your life.

What can one expect to gain from therapy?

The overall therapeutic goals for all clients are: a healthy attachment based personality modulation (to deal with various people and stressors), an internalized self-efficacy (based on positive attributes, beliefs, and insights about self), and establishing a Plan of Leadership based on the new and different self.

What is unique about you as a therapist?

As an action-oriented therapist, I use a variety of techniques to bond with clients: empathy, humor, psych-education, process-dynamics, and therapeutic challenge. The most basic goal of therapy is to transform a person into a “client” – one who has an innate need to explore systemic change in their life.

What relationship exists between mental health and substance abuse?

With most clients, substance abuse is a numbing mechanism. Not only an escape from daily/weekly stressors, but also deeply-rooted in a desperate attempt to avoid being with the Self. In addition to the collateral resources for addiction, I help explore the deep emotional wounding that triggers their addiction patterns.

1) What therapy approach(es) do you utilize? What issues do your specify treament for? 

My treatment approaches include psychodynamic, DBT, and Jungian. I treat alcohol and other drug addictions as well as eating disorders and other process addictions (like shopping). I also treat other mental health conditions like depression and anxiety (which underlie the addictions).

 

2) How does one know if therapy is right for them?

Each person needs to decide if therapy is "right" or "helpful" to them. This is a process like the rest of life. Some things work for some people some of the time and therapy is one way that people can move towards health and evaluate if they want to keep living the way that they are living. Change often comes when someone is in extreme physical or emotional pain. Therapy is one way of addressing and relieving emotional pain. Very often people benefit from therapy combined with other self care options like exercise and health nutrition.

 

3) What can one expect to gain from therapy? 

Personal insight and away to understand one's own behavior as well as the behavior of others may be gained by therapy. Very often talking about painful issues helps release these and let a person move forward in their life. Pain may be part of life but living in misery is optional. Therapy can help a person manage their pain and stop living in misery.

 

4) What is unique about you as a therapist? 

My training and understanding of the behavioral as well as emotional components of the addictions makes my treatment position different from other therapists. I have spent over ten years working at a methadone clinic. I also have extensive experience in working with patients on medications for addictions (Naltrexone or Suboxone for example).  I understand the complexity of prescription drug addiction (opiates and benzos) and how difficult certain classes of drugs are to stop using.

 

5) What relationship exists between mental health and substance abuse? 

I have never treated an addiction that did not have another mental health condition that was part of the picture. Depression and anxiety are the most common in my patients. Alcohol and other drug abuse/dependence is a way to manage other psychiatric issues.

San Jose, CA 95128

What types of services do you offer? What issues do you specify treatment for?

I am empathic towards clients who are struggling with all kinds of anxiety and mood issues especially in relationships with their partners, family, friends or co-workers. I help them develop insight and find healthy coping skills so as to reduce and eliminate chemical and behavioral addictions. While substance abuse gets a lot of attention, there are growing behavioral addictions such as Internet gaming, love, sex and porn, as well as online shopping and gambling.

What therapy modalities do you use in your practices?

Depending on my clients' preferences and together with their cooperation, I use different evidence-based modalities to help them in their journey. With their agreement, I tend to use behavioral methods initially, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), to help them control their chemical and behavioral addictions. My clients also typically benefit from emotional regulation and distress tolerance skills with Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). If they are open to mindfulness, I would help them gain those skills as well. As my clients continue on their journey, I may use experiential, existential, and psychodynamic modalities. With child or teen clients, I typically use play, puppet, in-room sports and art therapies. For couples, Gottman, DBT, and experiential are some techniques that I use. Most importantly, I help my clients understand the importance of their own strengths and resilience which they can tap into once they have identified them.

When should one seek treatment?

Most of my clients come in because they experience issues in their day-to-day life that create tremendous difficulties for them to function properly. My advice is to reach out to professionals whenever you feel you can benefit from expert third-party skills and knowledge to support you on your life journey. When you do so immediately rather than wait till your challenges become overwhelming, your issues are easier and quicker to resolve.

Why should someone choose to come to your practice?

I am emphatic and my style is warm towards my clients. I form strong therapeutic alliances with my clients. Together with them, I use an integrated method to help them conquer their immediate problems and, then, work deeply to resolve traumas in some cases.

What relationship exists between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you provide for someone suffering with either and/or both?

Life presents a lot of different types of stress. When these are not severe, we tend to be able to find healthy methods such as exercise, good nutrition and sleep, as well as meditation and good support groups to manage the stress.

What types of services do you offer? What issues do you specify treatment for?

I provide individual and couples therapy services for adults dealing with depression, anxiety, relationship issues and substance abuse. I'm also, bilingual (Spanish/English) and provide services in Spanish.

What therapy modalities do you use in your practice?

The therapy modalities I use include humanistic, psychodynamic, psychoanalytic, as well as cognitive behavioral approaches. For couples therapy I use Imago Relationship therapy.

When should one seek treatment?

As soon as the client realizes that s/he is not satisfied with her/his life. As the first symptoms appear. Do not wait until a crisis occur. Prevention is the key. Remember, through understanding comes transformation.

What relationships exist between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you provide for someone suffering with either and/or both?

Mental Health and Substance Abuse go hand in hand. Most people suffering from a mental illness are also using substances, probably, as an attempt to self-medicate. Substance Abuse is a multilayered problem. It affects the biology, psychology and behavior of the affected individual. It affects the whole family. Best results are when the client accepts that s/he has a problem and is ready to ask for help. Individual, family therapy and participation in a 12-step program are key for successful recovery.

I provide services to the affected individual, the couple and family when appropriate. I treat mental illness and substance abuse as a dual diagnosis.

1) What therapy approach(es) do you utilize? What issues do you specify treatment for?

I employ an eclectic approach to working with clients that is client-based and relational.  I work with a wide range of clients and do couples work as well as working with individuals on issues such as repetitive problems, beliefs that may be initially unrecognized but that can profoundly affect people in negative ways, relational issues, communication, and patterns that negatively affect people and interfere with what they want and need.

 

2) How does one know if therapy is right for them? 

I believe that the primary factors in successful therapy are having a good "fit" between the therapist and client - working with someone the client trusts - and working with a therapist whose education and abilities allow him or her to help figure out what's going on and what options are worth pursuing in order to help.

 

3) What can one expect to gain from therapy? 

Insight is probably the most important element in dealing with problems in our lives.  By gaining a deeper understanding of ourselves and what's going on for us, we're more likely to find solutions and significantly improve our lives.  This is similar to the medical model of diagnosing (understanding) first, then treating.

 

4) What is unique about you as a therapist? 

This is difficult for me to say, since I'm talking about myself and what I believe to be true about myself.  I can say I think it's crucial for me to listen carefully and do my absolute best to understand my clients.  I also believe it's important that I'm more than willing to believe what my clients tell me rather than forming my own opinions and needing to feel "right".  Listening and understanding are part of making the kind of connection with my clients that allows me to be of service to them.  I don't set agendas; my job is to help people with what they want.

 

5) What relationship exists between mental health and substance abuse? 

First, I'm not medically trained and I'm fully aware that there are physiological reasons, that go beyond my education and training, for why substance abuse can become an issue in a person's life.  I do believe though that psychological factors can certainly lead to substance abuse problems.  When people are in pain, regardless of whether it's physical or psychological, we tend to do what we can to relieve it.  Psychological pain, whether it's due to grief, anxiety, pressure, or whatever, is sometimes a trigger for substance abuse because drugs or alcohol can mask the pain, at least for a while.  The problem is that using drugs or alcohol in an attempt to deal with psychological pain doesn't deal with the underlying cause and can turn into a cycle of escalation and addiction.

My rate is $130 for a 50 minute session and I work with clients by appointment on a once per week basis unless they need and want to be seen more often than once a week.

1) What types of services do you offer? What issues do you specify treatment for?

I offer counseling and psychotherapy for individuals, couples, and families. While I keep my practice open to work with a wide range of issues such as depression, anxiety, and codependence, I have a special interest in helping people who are going through or recovering from the various impacts of divorce, from dealing with custody and co-parenting to self-esteem and dating, and all the related complexities that show up, whether before the relationship ends or years later when a pattern shows up in the next relationship.
 
 

2) What therapy modalities do you use in your practices? 

I believe people's needs are too varied to subscribe to a single therapy modality. I typically work through a multi-modal, holistic approach that can facilitate the therapeutic process. Often, this can include an experiential/mindfulness component to emotional content, in addition to cognitive consideration of the circumstance.
 
 

3) When should one seek treatment?

Seeking mental health support is a strength, not a weakness. Counseling can be valuable at any stage of life to increase satisfaction and fulfillment. It is especially beneficial in times of high stress, life transition, and when other supports may not be reliable or available, and is most effective when you are motivated to work toward your goals, even when the process gets a little uncomfortable.
 
 

4) Why should someone choose to come to your practice?

Psychotherapy is a relationship between client and therapist, but also between two humans. While I bring my experience and training as a therapist, as well as some past work in a detox facility, I also bring compassion, and humanity to the work. Therapy is most effective when there is a good fit between client and counselor, since trust is important, and sensitive topics and vulnerable emotions can be involved. I offer all clients a free phone consultation to decide if I might be the right fit.
 
 

5) What relationship exists between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you offer for someone suffering with either and/or both? 

Mental health issues and substance abuse do often coincide. Sometimes life circumstance plays a role in creating both issues, and sometimes substance abuse results a form of "self-medicating" for other concerns. I can support clients around both mental health and substance abuse, including identifying triggers, building new coping skills, planning for temptation, and working through underlying feelings and unresolved mental health concerns. I can also provide additional resource referrals and collaborate with other support providers for your care.

I provide psychotherapy for adults, couples, and adolescents. I currently run one process group for men and women seeking support and personal growth. I specialize in treatment for anxiety, grief and loss, codependency, stress.

 

2) What therapy modalities do you use in your practices?

I utilize a variety of approaches based on your unique needs. I often draw from cognitive behavioral, solution focused, mindfulness, motivational interviewing and client-centered interventions. My approach supports involvement in 12 step programs.

 

3) When should one seek treatment?

Therapy is a wonderful tool for anyone dealing with change and stress. Problems are generally easier to tackle when they are smaller. With that in mind, I urge you to seek treatment sooner rather than later.

 

4) Why should someone choose to come to your practice?

I have a warn and down to earth approach. I provide a safe and supportive environment to  work through your issues and concerns.

 

5) What relationship exists between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you provide for someone suffering with either and/or both?

Substance abuse can create or worsen mental health symptoms. Sometimes drugs and alcohol are used to self-medicate mental health problems. Unfortunately, this is not the most effective treatment and often causes a host of new problems as well. I provide therapy for individuals suffering from anxiety, depression, substance abuse.  I support efforts to reduce substance use, achieve abstinence, or prevent relapse. I also provide counseling for family members struggling with their loved one's addiction.

1) What types of services do you offer? What issues do you specify treatment for?

I am a Psychotherapist, Personal Trainer and Wellness Coach. I utilize an integrated approach to working with individuals, families and couples that incorporates all of these hats. I treat issues that cause someone distress like substance abuse, anxiety, depression, family problems, parenting problems, weight loss, and psychotic disorders.

2) What therapy modalities do you use in your practices?

I utilize a strengths based motivational interviewing approach that is solution focused and is based on the fundamental belief that we hold all the answers intuitively within ourselves. In my work with clients I work to discover the reasoning behind poor coping behaviors such as substance abuse, over eating, and or defensive mechanisms that are no longer serving their purpose in order to determine the best course of treatment. 

3) When should one seek treatment?

You should seek treatment when you are not living your fullest potential and best life the way YOU would define it. This is a personal decision and one that should be taken when you feel ready to change the life you are living in order to discover your authentic self.

4) Why should someone choose to come to your practice?

I bring a background that truly explores both the mind and body in understanding wellness and that incorporates an integrated approach to improving on your life that is different from many other therapists. 

5) What relationship exists between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you provide for someone suffering with either and/or both?

Many of my clients have an underlying mental health problem that leads them to cope with substances and “self medicate” with drugs and/or alcohol.  This is not uncommon and working with one problem without addressing the needs of the other will not result in a positive change.  Dual Diagnosis (someone with both a substance use problem and underlying mental health problem) needs to be explored from a total approach for true change to be possible.
