Transforming Pain into Purpose

Individual, Couples, and Group Therapy in Silicon Valley

Let Us Help you

We help you create a life that feels good on the inside, not just one that looks good on the outside.

It is very common for professionals, parents, students, and others in Silicon Valley to present a happy and positive image – even if we don’t always feel that way.

You put on “the face” for the world, showing everyone how capable and happy you are. But inside it feels like you’re falling apart.

  • The old ways of coping just aren’t working anymore.
  • The pain is too strong to ignore.
  • SOMETHING must change.
  • You are ready to make a commitment to get unstuck.
  • The glimmer of hope that things can change is outweighing the doubt.

The problem is real.

In many ways, a human brain is more powerful than any supercomputer. Yet the brain is just as susceptible to illness as any other organ, bone or tissue.

When your brain tells you something is wrong, it usually is. When that happens, it is important to address the problem and correct it before it becomes unmanageable.

Some of the problems we can address in therapy are:

  • Painful childhood memories and family dynamics
  • Emotional abandonment
  • Feeling broken, unlovable and “not good enough”
  • Emotional and physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse and assault
  • Substance abuse and addiction
  • Feeling stuck, hopeless and helpless
  • Emotions that are overwhelming and feel like they are in control

How We Can Help

Our goal is for you NOT to NEED therapy.

We aren’t the kind of therapists that just listen and say “hmmm,” and “uh huh,” and “how do you feel about that?” We believe in creating lasting change.

We specialize in transforming deep emotional pain through a combination of skill-building, education, connecting to values, fostering mindful awareness, and working simultaneously with mind, body, and feelings.

We are authentic, real, and down to earth; and we have all walked our own healing paths, so we understand how much courage it takes.

We can help where others haven’t.

Because we are focused on creating change, we help people who haven’t been helped by other therapy approaches.

With our team of highly trained specialists, we can provide the right approach to help you live a full, healthy and satisfying life with meaning and purpose.

What’s special about Bay Area Mental Health?

It’s not “one size fits all.”

Our therapists each have a different subspecialty. Because we have created a team, we are uniquely able to find the perfect match for your needs. And if those needs change in the future, we can adjust.

We believe in truly OUTSTANDING customer service.

You’re in pain and that’s why you’re coming to us. We want to support you in every way that we can. We return calls right away and even offer in-between session support free of charge.

Are you ready to make the call?
