I have worked as a licensed psychologist specializing in individual psychotherapy with children, adolescents and young adults for more than a decade. I have expertise in both talk and play therapies, helping people to understand their feelings and work through difficult situations. Using a gentle and compassionate manner, I invite participation so we can work together to effectively address your needs. I offer a combination of approaches I tailor specifically for you to promote your emotional growth and well-being. When working with children, I also provide support for parents regarding behavior management and communication with their children. With adolescents and young adults, I work collaboratively in setting goals and empowering them to achieve success and happiness. Having previously worked as a classroom teacher at both the K-12 and graduate school levels, I have more than twenty years of experience working with children, adolescents and young adults. I earned a Doctor of Psychology degree at the Wright Institute, which is fully accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA).

Welcome! My name is Jill Krafts. Since 2000, I have been helping adolescents and adults to improve their mood, manage stress and feel more joyful about their lives. I have extensive experience in treating depression, and I have a specialty in treating anxiety, panic attacks, unwanted thoughts and repetitive behaviors. I am direct and honest with my clients, and I focus on practical ways to solve problems. I also use humor as a powerful ally in helping people analyze and change their thoughts, feelings and behaviors. I primarily use Cognitive-Behavior Therapy (CBT), but I use other therapy approaches as well. It is important that my clients can identify progress from our work together. I grew up in Arizona and then came to the Bay Area to complete a Bachelor of Arts degree at Stanford University in psychology and communication. I then received my Master of Social Work degree at San Jose State University. I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker since 2003. I worked in the Adult Psychiatry Department at Kaiser Santa Clara for 12 years, providing individual and group therapy. I live in San Jose with my husband, two children and our dog.

Sara Saatchi, Psy.D.
Licensed Psychologist, PSY23353

650-684-SARA (7272) | Drsarasaatchi@gmail.com | www.DrSaraSaatchi.com

I provide psychotherapy for children and parents. I support clients facing anxiety, depression, bullying, social skill development, trauma, loss, parenting and co-parenting issues. I also provide consultation to schools on behalf of a child when needed. Children’s emotional development is closely related to the quality of the attachment with their caregiver. Therefore, I help to enhance the quality of parent-child interactions, bonding and communication. I support children and parents with issues related to parental separation, divorce, co-parenting, adoption and foster care. My work is primarily based on attachment theory, and I use psychodynamic and cognitive-behavior therapy (CBT) interventions when appropriate. I use humor and direct communication to support both children and families to de-stress and work through emotional roadblocks. In addition to my clinical work, I have taught courses in mental health at DeAnza College.

christina walker, child therapist, child psychologist, therapist, Los Altos, Bay Area

Christina Walker, Psy.D.
Licensed Psychologist, PSY22470

415-886-7062 | drchristinamwalker@gmail.com

Since 2009, I have worked as a licensed psychologist with children, adolescents and families. I approach psychotherapy in a collaborative and warm manner. I view psychotherapy as a dynamic and evolving process, and I tailor treatment to address each child's unique experience. I support children in learning to cope with anxiety, depression, trauma, social skills issues, family transitions and parent-child relationship problems. I view children and adolescents as part of a larger family system, and I approach treatment in a way that supports both the individual and the family. With younger children, parents are an integral part of treatment, and I work regularly with them to assist their child. With adolescents, parental involvement can vary depending on the developmental needs of the adolescent and family. I earned a Doctor of Psychology degree at University of Denver, a program with full accreditation from the American Psychological Association.
