Are you feeling depressed, anxious, struggling with relationship conflict or substances? Sometimes, the very strategies we use to feel safe, to belong, to get approval, and to feel loved – to survive – no longer serve us. When we try to carry these strategies into adulthood, it can lead to high conflict, challenging behaviors, anxiety, depression, and substance use. For couples and families, I work from an Emotion Focused Therapy approach exploring clients' reactivity, triggers, and hurts that underlie conflict and helping them find other ways to respond that lead to more trust, intimacy and connectedness.

My predominant specialty areas are in trauma/PTSD, addiction , and perinatal mental health.
I provide individual therapy for adults who are seeking to heal prior family wounds and traumas, improve their current relationships and quality of life, and are seeking support during times of transition - especially to parenthood. My personal belief is that there are three things that cause an immense amount of suffering for most people; 1) our inability to effectively identify, feel, and communicate our emotions, 2) our difficulty with tolerating uncertainty, and 3) our tendency to get stuck in patterns of rigidity. My work tends to be emotion-focused, helping clients to live more freely and flexibly.

I began my career as an addiction counselor, and that work remains a passion.
I came to this field when I began my recovery 15 years ago, feeling that my lived experience would be greatly beneficial for others struggling to find new ways of being. I believe we all want to be our best selves, and have the capacity for real change. It is my honor to support and facilitate that process, working in genuine collaboration with my clients, and to offer unconditional respect and compassion through the transformation. We can work together on priorities you identify, in a way that suits you. ***I offer a free initial 30 minute session***

My particular specialties are working with adolescents and adults around topics such as addiction and recovery, depression, anxiety, life transitions and the shifts in identity that accompany these transitions.
Do you feel like you’ve lost sight of who you are or what is important to you? Are you going through a life transition and feel disconnected from who you used to be? Maybe you use coping mechanisms that once helped you feel better but find they no longer work. Does it seem like everyone else received some manual on living life that you didn't get? When faced with life's challenges, it’s easy to feel stuck and unable to take action. Therapy allows you the support to focus on your own growth, to develop insight about yourself, and to change behaviors that no longer serve you.

Trauma can impact us deeply with symptoms such as depression, anger, addiction , relationship dysfunction.
Your choice to work with a therapist can be an enriching experience. You are bringing your unique challenges and/or quests into a collaborative relationship. I can assist you whether your desired changes are explicit or are awaiting discovery in a process of exploration. I have extensive experience in Relational Therapy, Individual Therapy, Anger Management, Sex Addiction , Depression and Trauma. Perhaps a Life-Style Coach or a Transpersonal guide is what you seek at this life cycle stage--I can help and change can come.

I have a background in performance art and currently utilize mindfulness as a tool to assist clients in their lives.

I have several years of experience specializing in the areas of sexuality, gender, LGBT issues, addiction , and chronic illness, with both adults and adolescents.
Do you feel lost, questioning who you are or where you're going with no easy answers? Sometimes life takes an unexpected turn, we hit a bottom, or we just realize that something in us is different...or something must change. Such times of confusion and crisis are often the meeting point for our work together. They are also openings to self-discovery and real change. I listen deeply for what you want, develop a relationship of trust, and work WITH you to establish the clarity and direction you need.

They may have experienced relationship or career conflicts, personal loss, trauma, or be in the middle of important life transitions. I also have advanced post-doctoral training in working with individuals who engage in potentially harmful behaviors and young adults struggling to develop their life path.

"I see things differently." I see you fully able to achieve your goals. I see you as one who likely needs a non-judgmental place to talk about things: your future goals, how drug/alcohol use, etc fits w/that future, & how you see yourself getting there: abstinence, sober curious. moderation. I'm a collaborator, one who's committed to listening deeply & providing a space to talk about anything, for individuals/families/all. I am not a therapist; my main focus is on today & tomorrow though we may visit the past. And I follow the science of change & addiction ; it shows there's no one way to recover/change & that's great news!

Addiction is a complex illness that has a lasting impact on a person and their entire family. Everyone's best intentions to heal or change can often result in outcomes that perpetuate suffering. The addiction cycle can feel like a rollercoaster with fleeting to no progress, or worse. There is a way off this ride. At Marin Family Recovery, we believe that a person's ability to change their life story and fully live a satisfying life is possible no matter how dark the starting place feels. Addiction is 100% treatable. With life there is always opportunity.

We explore a host of issues, including: emotionally rooted physiologic ailments, medical trauma, PTSD, developmental trauma, grief, energetic sensitivity, assault, boundary setting, anxiety, panic attacks, eating disorders, addiction , codependency, and transitional and relational struggles.
As humans, we are brilliantly complex, wired for connection, attachment, and survival. Our experience of joy and suffering are innately human and are connected to our physical and emotional wellness--inseparable realms. In somatic psychotherapy we hold space for the body to have a language of its own, honoring what it has to say, so that we may more clearly see what is beneath the surface. As a somatic psychotherapist, I am a collaborator, guide and mirror, supporting you in increasing your own sense of exploration of conscious and unconscious patterns of behaviors, beliefs, body signals and cues.

I offer trauma-informed psychological treatment for post-traumatic stress, addiction , grief, anxiety, depression, and related life challenges, and support for positive growth and insight building. I utilize a combination of EMDR, internal family systems (IFS), cognitive behavioral (CBT), and dialectical behavioral (DBT) therapies to provide a somatic and source-focused approach to healing. I educate my clients on the universality of traumatic and addictive experiences. I define trauma broadly as any past experience that remains charged and disturbing, and thus has value in alleviating mental health challenges in the present.

Addiction Therapists
A person with an addiction uses a substance, or engages in a behavior, for which the rewarding effects provide a compelling incentive to repeat the activity, despite detrimental consequences. Addiction may involve the use of substances such as alcohol, inhalants, opioids, cocaine, and nicotine, or behaviors such as gambling.
