Welcome

Hi, I’m Karen Sumi.

Since you’ve found my website it’s likely that you have either been searching the internet for a therapist or someone mentioned my name and you’re here to check me out and try to decide if I can help you. I am conveniently located in South San Jose in Almaden Valley.

Chances are something in your life is not working. You may be feeling depressed, anxious or stressed out, or wondering how to improve your relationship with an intimate partner, friends or family members, co-workers or boss. Or maybe you are trying to make sense out of your life and discover what makes life meaningful for you.

We all go through major life transitions at various times — new relationships, getting married, birth of a child, parenting challenges, career or job change, serious illness, or the death of a loved one. During these times it helps to have the support of our friends and families. It can also help to work with a trained professional so that you can learn how to become your own best source of support.

Making the decision to seek therapy takes courage. Allowing another person to work closely with you during a vulnerable time in your life is difficult. But it can help.

If you would like to learn more about me and the psychotherapy services I offer, please contact me to arrange a 20-minute, confidential phone consultation at no charge.
