amymftIf you are ready to take the first steps towards a happier, more fulfilling life, I am ready to help. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a private practice located in the heart of Silicon Valley. I have experience working with a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, friendship and dating, and family dynamics. I also am a certified provider of comprehensive behavioral treatment for Trichotillomania and other Body Focused Repetitive Behaviors.

I use therapeutic treatment methods that have been scientifically researched and are shown to be effective. This includes evidence-based practices* such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help clients identify and achieve their goals.

In addition to CBT, my therapeutic style is informed by Attachment Theory, Dialectic Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic theories, and Family Systems theories.

*Evidence-based practice, which originated in the medical field, refers to the process of using research to make clinical decisions that best meet the needs of each client.
