Hello, I'm Dr. Ana D. your supporter on a journey towards personal growth, resilience, and wellbeing. I serve as the Clinical Director for the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) at the University of California, San Francisco, and also maintain a fulfilling private practice. My mission is to foster a empathetic environment where individuals can explore and grow in various aspects of their lives.
My approach is straightforward and compassionate, centered around establishing trust and understanding. I provide a space where you can openly express your thoughts and feelings, knowing they will be met with respect and non-judgment. Supporting your growth through life's challenges, bolstering resilience, and helping manage stress are cornerstones of my practice. Your personal evolution is a priority.
I bring a wealth of experience from working with doctors, tech professionals, and researchers, but my skills extend to helping a diverse range of individuals navigate personal, relational, and professional concerns.
Tailoring each session to your unique needs, I utilize a variety of therapeutic techniques:
-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
-Eye-Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR) for trauma-related issues
-Solution-Focused Interventions for goal-oriented therapy
-Mindfulness-Based interventions for stress reduction and focus
-Strength-Based approach to capitalize on your personal strengths and abilities
-Transpersonal for unique explorations
In addition to individual therapy, I conduct psychoeducational workshops on a variety of topics, including burnout, emotional intelligence, conflict resolution, and mindfulness in the workplace. These workshops have enriched wellness at institutions like UC San Francisco, Stanford, California College of Arts, CSU East Bay, and others.
Above all, I am here for you as you are, ready to accompany you on your journey towards personal growth and wellness. My genuine investment in your well-being and success defines my practice, making me not just your doctor, but a supportive companion in your wellness journey.
