At Palo Alto Smart Therapy,

We help smart, resourceful, strong people feel better and grow into the lives they want. Our mission is to be a part of the solution that helps people in our fast-paced, goal-oriented community feel more alive, go to the next level, and find what it takes to be the person they want to be.

You are …


You realize you can’t get to the next level in your life and your relationships by doing the same thing that got you to where you are right now.  Where you are right now might be a fine place.  At the same time, you believe there is a real chance your life can be more satisfying.


If you knew how to get to the next level, you would have done it by now. You might have read books or watched an inspiring TED talk that helped for a while. Maybe you tried a new mindfulness app you thought would get you there, but you’re still looking for something that will help you feel better. You want more.


You know where you are, and it’s not good enough. We know looking for a good therapist can feel overwhelming. We believe taking this step to make your life better comes from a place of strength. You’re ready to do what it takes to get a different result… to have a different experience of life… to play a bigger game.

We help people who have it all on paper.  They want it all inside of themselves and in their relationships, too.

That is a good reason to look for a therapist.  That is how you found yourself here.

Our therapists’ approaches are informed by the cutting edge fields of stress management, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), EMDR, Mindfulness, Humanistic-Existential Psychology, Positive Psychology, and Resilience.
