I believe that in life, we all want to be the very best versions of ourselves. However, along the journey of life’s path we often find ourselves off course. Sometimes, it’s due to reasons we contribute to. Sometimes, it is due to outside influences. Sometimes, it is due to reasons we have no control over. I believe therapy is the process of working with an individual, to help put them back on this path and work towards the best version of themselves. In our daily lives, we are faced with challenges; however, it is the way in which we respond to those challenges that helps us find success in our own mental health.

About

Helping to heal, energize, become aware of inner strengths, and flourish.

I truly enjoy working with children and adolescents, as they are curious, honest in their feedback, and keep you on your toes throughout sessions. I have always focused on working with youth and helping them understand why our brains do some of the things they do. I incorporate an interactive and relaxed environment and empower kids to be part of the treatment team. I describe my role as “the helper” to problem solve the issues and develop new coping skills. Parents are active in therapy services as well and are an important part of the treatment team. I come from a cognitive behavioral perspective, meaning that in order to modify one’s behaviors, we must process the emotions and thought patterns behind them. With adolescents, this is often done through Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), and for children, therapy is modified to incorporate their language of play and parents’ role of providing a therapeutic and secure environment. I started my psychotherapy practice in local children’s hospitals and clinics, as well as community mental health clinics. I am an experienced provider for outpatient psychotherapy and online therapy services in pediatric hospital and clinic settings. I specialize in managing depression and anxiety, play therapy, adjustment to medical diagnosis, motor tics, behavior modification, and pain management through use of biofeedback and self-hypnosis.I understand how important it is to find a therapy provider that is a good fit for you and your child. I am happy to talk more with you prior to scheduling your new patient intake session to answer any further questions you may have. You may call / email to request a phone consult or you may schedule a free video chat online.I am honored to work with families as they go through these difficult times and appreciate your openness to invite me to walk alongside you in your journey. I look forward to working with you and your family. Education & TrainingCertificate in Play Therapy from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota.

What are people saying about counseling & mental health in San Francisco, CA?

This is a review for counseling & mental health in San Francisco, CA:

“May is such a game changer! I could not recommend working with her more. She really helped me unlock the root of some of my blocks and be able to move forward in a different way. While May lets you drive the direction of your session after the initial groundwork is laid and she clearly understands your goals and where you are coming from, her thoughtful questions and nurturing approach offers so much guidance and insight along the way. I have spent a lot of time going to different types of therapy and different therapists and finally committing to going to May has offered so many breakthroughs and given me the tools to move forward on my own for the first time in a long time.”
