Are you tired of feeling overwhelmed, anxious, depressed or stuck in your life? Then, I can help you. You are probably using negative thought patterns, which can directly affect how you feel about yourself. You may have learned them as a child or from the environment. I have been trained to use a method called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Dr. Beck first starting using CBT back in the 1960’s. I can help you to stop feeling stuck and discouraged by.

  • I can help you move forward and let go old thought patterns.
  • Feel confident and successful.
  • Love yourself
  • Challenge your negative beliefs and replace them with new positive beliefs.

I also incorporate mindfulness and spirituality into therapy. Mindfulness is the practice of living in the present. We can’t go backwards and we can’t predict the future. Mindfulness is a way of meditating. I will help you feel better about yourself and set aside time for yourself on a daily basis. Studies have found, when you add spirituality to your life it can relieve symptoms of depression and anxiety. I can help you accept God's grace and joy. I will also, help you understand the importance of being connected spiritually and the impact it has on you and your relationships.

I work with clients in the San Mateo, CA area and would be happy to explore with you if working together makes sense.
