Our supportive psychodynamic process is cognitive and emotive, with some understanding of neurobiology, to discover/activate clients' value in spite of sometimes traumatic histories.
If life events, relationships, performance, school or job stresses have brought you here, you deserve congratulations for having already done 50% of the work. Your willingness to consult and collaborate with a practiced professional means you have taken an all important first step in developing a lifelong plan toward a sense of well being and vitality. My practice combines a research degree in Developmental Psychology with PhD in Clinical Psychology to identify and disable hidden, often old, myths that have blocked or hindered my clients' access to happy, fulfilled lives at each stage of development. Together we can do it.

My approach is integrative, blending depth psychology, attachment theory, cognitive behavioral therapy, relational and mindfulness-based practices.
Developing a deeper awareness of our emotional suffering creates an overall sense of well-being, allowing us to live an authentic life. With this deeper awareness, we begin to understand the underlying dynamics that keep us stuck. Inner work in its very essence facilitates insight, healing and transformation, connecting us to our innate wisdom. I work with adults, children and adolescents experiencing a wide range of difficulties. My collaborative, compassionate approach with parents, facilitates conscious, positive parenting to strengthen the parent-child attachment relationship.

Based upon individual needs and goals, I utilize psychodynamic and/or cognitive behavioral strategies.
My therapeutic approach is warm, respectful, active, engaged, compassionate and focused. My clinical framework is guided by convictions that individuals possess intrinsic drives toward health, happiness and love. When this inner wisdom becomes obscured by life's struggles, or when a child's development sways off course, I provide a space to reflect, regain perspective, and help individuals make adaptive choices and coping strategies that lend to greater fulfillment in play, school, work and relationships.

We can safely explore how trauma and family patterns may have seeded beliefs and feelings that no longer serve the life you are striving to live. My neurobehavioral training informs how I partner with you to shift thinking, feeling, and reactivity, positively impacting self-esteem and relationships. Between sessions, tools are offered for ongoing continuity.

I practice from a psychodynamic framework informed by object relations, CBT , self psychology, and family systems.
I have many years of experience and training and enjoy working with adults, couples and teens. I find that most clients come to me when their old ways of coping are no longer working (or they are unhealthy) and the stress is too much! Also, when they can't avoid the strong feelings bubbling to the surface. Why do it alone. I hold the hope for my clients when they aren't able.

My approach is influenced by a number of schools of thought: humanistic, psychoanalytic, Jungian, cognitive -behavioral, family systems, Buddhist psychology/mindfulness, somatic awareness.
I work with children, adolescents, and adults, providing individual, couples, and family therapy, play therapy, and parenting consultation. If you're looking for a safe and supportive place in which to explore your concerns, I offer careful listening and collaborative engagement in the service of working toward your goals. People seek psychotherapy for many reasons. Some want help with specific problems such as depression, relationship conflict, or concern about a child. Others feel stuck in problematic patterns that cause emotional distress, interfere with their ability to connect with others, or hinder their ability to find fulfillment in life.

I utilize cognitive -behavioral, solution-focused and dialectical behavioral interventions to help my clients bring about the necessary changes in their lives to feel comfortable and happy again and diminish the distress and discomfort they are feeling. By learning to focus on strengths and resources rather than past problems and failings, my clients report feeling less depressed and anxious, while looking forward to the days ahead. I am aware of the important role of thinking in how we feel and what we do, and so I help my clients replace dysfunctional thoughts with more adaptive ones. Life is special.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists
Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments.

If you're looking for CBT therapy in Novato or for a Novato CBT therapist these professionals provide cognitive behavioral therapy, cbt group therapy, cbt therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, cognitive therapy and behavioral therapy. They include CBT therapists, CBT psychologists, CBT psychotherapists and CBT counselors.
