Values Intersecting with Actions

Welcome to V.I.A.!

With psychologists with backgrounds in emotion regulation, romantic relationships, and diversity and inclusion, we at V.I.A. are committed to improving our clients’ lives through evidence-based skills.

Our mission is to help clients achieve their personal and professional goals by helping them live according to their values. We deeply value each person’s unique identities, values, and cultures that have shaped his or her hopes for the future. Once we understand your perspective, we create personalized plans, regular check-ins, and one-of-a-kind methods of accomplishing whatever goals our clients have in mind. In this way, we ensure that your values translate into meaningful actions.


We are committed to the safety of our clients and our clinicians. Values Intersecting Action, GP is located in the SF Bay Area, which has been placed under a “Shelter in Place” order. The purpose of this order is to facilitate the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) efforts to “flatten the curve” of the COVID-19 pandemic with social distancing. To balance serving our community during this time of extreme stress with doing our part to slow the spread of COVID-19, we are moving to 100% teletherapy. We encourage everyone to follow the CDC’s prevention guidelines. If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, please call your primary care provider for instructions to care for yourself, those around you, and to get tested. If you feel overwhelmed by the situation and need immediate support, please use additional resources.
