INDIVIDUAL, TEENS, AND COUPLES THERAPY IN SAN JOSE, CA & SAN JUAN, PR 

Make space for what you value

real talk:

Have you been talking about making a change? 
Let's start to make it happen.

Does this sound familiar? 

✕  You look like you've got it all together, but internally you're really struggling. You're always doubting yourself but you're trying to act like you know what you're doing.  

  You hate asking for help and you don't want to bother to your friends or family.  You've been trying to deal with things on your own and no one really knows how much you're actually struggling

  You constantly doubt yourself in relationships.  You seem to find yourself repeating the same patterns and ending up with a partner who can't meet your needs. 

YOU'RE IN THE RIGHT SPOT.

This is a space where you can take care of your needs to feel better, more grounded, and connected to your life

Our clients are looking to:

Bring their whole self to the table

During our sessions you'll have a safe space to process your ups and downs (and everything in between) so you can start to show up as your whole self, even the parts of you that it's hard to let others see.

 

Feel empowered to make sustainable changes

Together we’ll examine long-standing patterns in your thoughts, behaviors and relationships and we’ll develop a committed action plan so you can start to feel more empowered and confident.

Finally invest in themselves and their own well-being.


You've spent so much time trying to deal with things on your own, but you're ready to receive support so you don't have to carry the weight alone.

Live a life aligned with their values.

In our work together we'll make space for what what matters most to you and shift your attention and energy to creating a life grounded in your values.

Therapy with us is

 Down to earth and relatable

✓  Compassionately direct to help you challenge yourself and grow

✓  A collaborative process to develop tools and help you show up as your best self

✓  Grounded in compassion, openness, and honesty so you can connect with your authentic self to align your life with your values

Therapy with us is not

✕  Stuffy and uptight

 

✕  A nod-and-smile session where you don’t get real feedback

✕  Just a weekly vent session without having to put in the work

✕  Lacking empathy and connection so you never feel 100% comfortable

What to expect from therapy

01

CLARIFY

Our first session we'll start to get to know each other. We'll ask questions about your past, get some background information from you, and we'll clarify what you want to work on in therapy.  (It's normal to feel a little nervous the first time we meet.)  We'll also talk about scheduling our future sessions so you know when we'll be meeting.

02

ALIGN

This is where we'll start to dig a little deeper.  
Our work will be a collaborative process to align your life with your core values.  We'll look at patterns you've noticed in your past as well in your behaviors or relationships.   We'll be walking beside you, but you will letting me know how we can best support you.  In our session, we'll be compassionately direct with a hint of humor. we think therapy should incorporate all aspects of the human experience, so there may be laughter, tears, relief, and realization of what you need.

03

MAINTENANCE

Next we'll reflect on our work together and the hard work you've put in. 
 We want to make sure that our work is helpful to you.  We'll talk about if we accomplished what you were hoping to work through in therapy.  We'll talk about next steps for you in your journey.
