If you have made it to this website, you are already on your way to resolving your conflict. My primary work is with adults and couples struggling with relationship and career issues. I also specialize in mood disorders (anxiety and depression ), loss and grief and in decision making. I focus on helping individuals and couples to bring awareness (mindfulness) to their feelings, bodies, moods and dreams to access their insight. From this insight, behavioral change can be explored and implemented. I provide both short and long term treatment. My style is interactive and I sometimes suggest behavioral homework.

I help clients struggling with life transitions, depression /anxiety, eating disorders, addictions (alcohol/drug, sex/love, food, internet), overcoming pain from the past, relationships, parenting, bipolar disorder, low self esteem, and trauma.
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.

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.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Novato. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
