I specialize in trauma whether it is complex trauma or intergenerational trauma using individualistic approaches to meet your needs through TF-CBT, CBT, DBT, and EMDR therapy.
Has trauma , anxiety, or depression interfered with the potential to become the best version of yourself? We often feel defined by traumatic or emotionally difficult experiences then often leave us feeling stuck in place rather than moving forward towards our goals. I’m here to provide a safe, affirming space for you to develop an understanding of yourself to overcome past experiences or fears that define you. Our work together will be met with unconditional acceptance, creative approaches, and the utmost compassion.

I've worked with many different populations including families surviving trauma , couples on the verge of breakup, children coping with multiple stressors and older adults dealing with health and questions of deeper meaning.
The question we struggle with is what's not working in my relationships, my work life, or myself? How does a person change so that you can get unstuck and pursue what is meaningful? These are the questions we'd explore and answer together. Through an appreciation of both conscious ideas and the pull of unconscious and historical forces, we would work to focus on what can be understood, what can be altered, and what must be accepted.

In the wake of the Coronavirus' worldwide impact, you may be in shock, numb, terrified, grieving, angry, depressed, isolated, traumatized and under intense stress. "All of us have been inducted into involuntary, intensive training in deep uncertainty," says my wise colleague Cynthia McReynolds. Humans have traditionally turned to each other, tribally, when under threat, but this time we are forced apart by Covid-19's contagiousness and mortality. Though physically distant, we can be in social solidarity. I offer to be part of that solidarity. 30 years' experience with trauma , loss, despair and facing down demons. 510 717-2437.

If you are looking for a therapist with over 30 years experience and that regularly conducts consultations for other therapists, you might want to take a look at my specialties. Most people are heading in the right direction, but it is like they are driving this road of life with two wheels off the road. They just can't get up to speed. I love helping people, like you, figure out what keeps you from getting up to speed and how to move past those issues like PTSD / TRAUMATIC EXPERIENCES, ADDICTIONS, MARITAL DISCORD, ANXIETY and DEPRESSION.

I am a registered play therapist-supervisor, a sandtray therapist and a trauma therapist.
When individuals, couples, families or children make the difficult decision to come to therapy they are usually feeling stuck and often scared. Each of us has our own strength and wisdom which we don't see when we are troubled. My goal is for us to work together to rediscover those qualities. I use a cattail plant as a symbol of how I see therapy. Why? Cattails are found stuck in a marsh and often regarded as weeds. But when looked at carefully they are graceful and strong. Let me help you find your strength and grace.

The pain, grief, stress, and trauma is literally held in our bodies and our tissues.
You have lost so much in your life, but your biggest loss has been your sense of self. Early on, you learned that it wasn’t safe to be who you are, or be in your skin or your body. So you run away from yourself and become an overachiever in work and in relationships. This hustling for worthiness has left you feeling abandoned and exhausted. You want to trust. You want to heal. You want to be able to dive deep into the beauty of life and laughter that you know is around you. Without knowing yourself, what your heart sounds and feels like - how will you build satisfying relationships and create a life that truly fills you up?

Mental health challenges are due to the aftereffects of traumatic experiences. Trauma can place a strain on your family, work, relationships, and even cause issues with self-worth. I specialize in trauma therapy along with treating personality disorders, depression, mood disorders, anxiety, and addiction. All these disorders can look different from person to person, and that is where our therapeutic journey of empowerment and self-exploration begins. I concentrate on creating a safe space of growth and self-discovery through unconditional positive regard, emotional regulation, and guided activities.

Your emotions and inner critic run your life. You crave a deep sense of peace, a break from the past, and a longing to be more grounded and excited for your future.
