You are more than the problems that beset you.

Counseling encourages the brave work of self inquiry and relational connection.

Your relationships are the touchstones to your personal well being. Our work will take a close look at those bonds - past and present - that continue to influence your present experience. Our weekly interactions provide ongoing opportunities to develop more authentic connections with your own well being and with those most important to you.

The lion’s share of my work as a relational therapist involves assisting individuals to better regulate their relationships with others. If overwhelmed by the needs of others, we focus on practicing setting more effective boundaries. Or, if disturbed by isolation, we practice allowing more vulnerability to show through to increase opportunities for bonding. By paying attention to the patterns apparent in our therapeutic relationship, we can discover clues to broader patterns and explore ways to “adjust the temperature” in order to create better-regulated habits as we return to our families and communities.

A Little Background

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with the State of California Board of Behavioral Sciences, MFC License #48223.

I received my M.A. degree in Counseling Psychology from John F. Kennedy University in 2006 with a Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology through the Holistic Psychology program in Campbell, CA. As an expression of my ongoing studies, I am a topic expert and regular author as a Relational Therapist for the GoodTherapy website. I adhere to a Developmental Model of Couples Therapy; integrating Attachment, Differentiation, and Neuroscience. My training experience with Hakomi and with the Couples Institute have been formative in this regard.

As a trained Family Wellness instructor,  I provide foundational parenting skills to new families as well as those beset by domestic violence, child abuse, and/or divorce. I am also a credentialed California Multi Subject Teacher and have been a classroom instructor for grades K-8 since 1990. 

What to Expect

Our initial session will be an opportunity for you to address your goals and to explore directly how we might tailor future sessions to meet those goals. If I believe your needs can best be met elsewhere, I will provide a list of referrals for you at this time. If we agree that you would benefit from our work together, I will generally request you to invest in a series of eight weekly sessions. This initial investment allows time to relax into the natural process of our developing relationship. After eight sessions, we can take time to assess your progress toward your goals and evaluate whether to continue. 

 

Please print and complete a Consent Form and Client Info Sheet. Bring them with you to our first meeting. We will go over them together at the start of our session. We also have copies available at the office.

No matter what challenges you are currently facing, you are the one who knows deeply what is best for you;

There is no perfect recipe to healing, and each of us needs a unique combination of ingredients. However, compassion, empathy, non-judgment, and loving-kindness are necessary to the process, and I commit to bring those qualities into our interactions. My role is to be present to your explorations, and help you identify steps you can comfortably and safely explore.

Regardless of the reason for your desire to start therapy, consent throughout is of primordial importance, and my approach is client-centered: that means I pull from an eclectic set of tools to provide a space, pace, and environment that works for you. In addition to more traditional talk therapy, I often draw from cognitive behavioral models, mindfulness, guided imagery, creative expression and art therapy, and some body-oriented techniques. 

 

A Little Background

I am a registered Marriage and Family Therapist Intern (MFC 88368) and Professional Clinical Counselor Registered Intern (IMF 2258) practicing under the supervision of Jonathan Bartlett, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFC 48223).

As a multilingual, transnational, and multicultural person who embodies social justice ideals, an appreciation for diversity is a key motivator to my understanding the unique strengths of individuals, couples, and families. I therefore seek to use my clinical skills, cultural humility, passion, and love for humanity to help effect positive social change in whichever way I can, and deeply believe that working from within leads to positive outward change.

I earned my B.S. from the University of Toronto, where I pursued a double major in Biology and Forensic Science, with a minor in Psychology. I have several years of experience in the food and wine industry, in organizational development of a government agency, as an independent marketing consultant and translator, and as a private tutor and nanny, working with children and adolescents. After considering several avenues to pursue my counseling career, I proudly chose the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology (currently Sofia University), which focuses on mind, body, and soul integration, to earn an M.A. in Counseling Psychology.

What To Expect

As a therapist, I have had the privilege of working as a bereavement counselor at Pathways, where I assisted adult individuals through the painful, yet indiscriminately transformative journey of intense grief. I also currently work at an elementary school within the Santa Clara Unified School District, where I support children ages 5 to 11. 

I have a particular affinity to working with grief and identity issues (specifically, cultural and multicultural identity, gender and/or sexual identity, religious/spiritual identity). In addition, I have worked with a variety of clients facing depression, anxiety, chemical and substance dependence and abuse, relationships and codependency, domestic violence, major life transitions, and various forms of acute and developmental trauma.  I am happy to provide a 20-minute consultation over the phone at no cost to answer any questions you may have, and to help you book your initial appointment.

You can initiate a conversation with Jonathan or Kim by  phone. Leave your number and a good time to reach you. We will do our best to get back to you within 24 hours.
