Psychotherapy

My patients are burned out and don’t derive satisfaction from their careers, despite spending a large portion of their lives at their offices and chained to their phones.
They struggle with boundaries and have difficulty saying no.
Their relationships are breaking down. They are arrested in experiences of grief.
They are processing complex issues and stress tied to medical and autoimmune conditions.
They don’t have a clear sense of who they are and struggle with confidence necessary to take the steps to incrementally become who they want to be.
They have experienced (and continue to re-experience) trauma. They are having difficulties starting families.
They are medical and law students unsure of how they will traverse the grueling training gauntlet they are facing.
They are trying to figure out how to date and struggling to find develop a real relationship with someone who is a non-creep.
They are overwhelmed by becoming new parents.
They abhor their bodies.
They are struggling to interact with the people in their lives who are not in therapy.

PATIENTS WHO CROSS THE THRESHOLD OF MY OFFICE ARE OFTEN STUCK. SYMPTOMS OF ANXIETY, DEPRESSION, SLEEP DISTURBANCE, OR ERRATIC EATING PATTERNS MAY HAVE GOTTEN THEIR ATTENTION. THEY ARE RECOGNIZING SIGNALS HAVE REACHED A THRESHOLD INDICATING A SIGNIFICANT NEED FOR CHANGE.

I work with bright individuals who know the "right answers" but repeatedly find themselves repeatedly pulled into familiar, problematic patterns that are holding them back from reaching their true potential.

work with me

I am a clinical psychologist and hold licenses and credentials in the states of California, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. I provide in-office services in Northern California and provide telemedicine sessions via phone or HIPPA-compliant video platform for patients in California, Virginia, and Washington.D.C.

I do not participate as an in-network provider with any insurance panels. Your confidentiality is of paramount importance to me, and I believe strongly that you - not your insurance company - should retain ultimate control and agency the course of your treatment and treatment plan. I am considered an out-of-network provider with many insurance plans and provide patients with an itemized "Superbill" with all treatment and diagnostic codes necessary if they elect to seek reimbursement for psychotherapy from their current carrier. I encourage potential patients to obtain confirmation and clarification from their insurance provider about the scope and nature of their current out-of-network benefit options and coverage.

Psychotherapy is a significant investment of your resources. Your time. Your money. Your energy. Research about the outcome of psychotherapy reveals again and again that the fit between patient and clinical is of paramount importance in the ultimate success of treatment. If you are considering engaging in psychotherapy, I strongly urge you to be a choosy consumer in regard to who you are ultimately entrusting your care and your story to over time. I am selective about my clientele, partnering with patients who are highly motivated and committed to what is seldom an easy or highly comfortable process. I believe that a secure space in which you can experience the optimal ratio of challenge and support is the true crucible for change, growth, and development. I encourage you to be highly selective about who you ultimately choose as your psychologist. Learning to raise your standards in your life (for your self, for others) will bode well for you, and you can start here.

 I explain to all potential patients that my goal is not to all things to all people or win a popularity contest. If it were, I would probably not be serving anyone really well. No one is everyone's cup of tea. (in life, the quicker we wrap our head around and become comfortable with this, the better off we will be) Delivering top-tier treatment is what matters the most to me. My priority is ensuring that you connect with who you ultimately need, not that you connect with me.

finding the right fit

Do I need a coach or a therapist?

I frequently have a waitlist for patients, but if you would like to explore the possibility of working together in the future, please do not hesitate to contact me.  I'd welcome the opportunity to learn more about you, your story, and how you are hoping to start showing up in this wild world we occupy.
