Often times we struggle with issues and need professional help. A therapist can also help you learn new skills in order to cope with challenges you’ll encounter throughout life. Through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), I have helped hundreds of families, couples, adults, teens, and children. Depending on your needs, I also use Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Positive Psychology, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness and other techniques.
My name is Marli and I’m glad you visited my website because seeking help is the first step to feeling better. I’m a licensed therapist and I spent 15 years working in the Department of Psychiatry at Kaiser, but now focus only on my private practice. My patients tell me that they like my compassionate, nurturing style which makes them feel comfortable and supported.
Since I’m fluent in English, Spanish and Portuguese, I can provide psychotherapy in any of these languages. As an immigrant from Brazil, I also understand firsthand cross-cultural issues so I can help people who are having difficulties adapting to a new country.
I Help People Tackle Problems Like:
- Feeling overwhelmed, anxious, stressed out or depressed
- Having relationship problems and trouble dealing with difficult people
- Communicating effectively with your family, spouse, peers or co-workers
- Stopping your mind from obsessing and worrying
- Suffering from chronic pain
- Helping your child cope with school issues, ADHD, OCD, behavioral or emotional problems
- Minimizing the stress in your life
You don’t have to suffer from these and other problems. I can help you have a more joyful life. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an effective method of treatment. I’ll also teach you Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques which will empower you and provide a long-lasting impact as you learn skills to help yourself.
I treat depression, anxiety, panic attacks, relationship issues, PTSD, phobias, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), bipolar illness, sexual issues, and victims of sexual and physical abuse. I help people from all over the San Jose area. This includes Campbell, Los Gatos, Cupertino, Santa Clara, Sunnyvale, Monte Sereno and throughout the SF Bay Area.
