I use mindfulness with clients to reduce anxiety, depression and stress.
Let's face it. Life is a juggling act between home, work, school, friends and family. Our bodies are bioenergetic systems geared for balance. When things go well, our energy flows and we feel good. When life happens and stress occurs, we can feel anxiety, depression and physical pain. We reach outside ourselves for relief when going inside is the answer. If you are ready for change and are committed to making that happen, please make an appointment today. My approach is wholistic and I use Energy Psychology (Tapping), Zen Buddhism and Mindfulness to achieve a client's goals.

Even if you are overwhelmed, anxious, depressed , or in relationship conflict, the issues and symptoms that trouble you provide solutions as we listen to them carefully without prejudgment.
Successful psychotherapy is a partnership based on trust. People do change, becoming more truly themselves when they find the right, trained therapist and are able to talk freely. I listen to you with respect and you develop greater self awareness. This enables you to communicate more clearly, to reflect on difficult issues, and to let go of outmoded behaviors that do not further your deeper needs.

I can help you develop awareness of debilitating emotions such as shame, grief, guilt, sadness, anger, self doubt, depression and anxiety.
Make therapy a gift to yourself and the journey of a lifetime. Experience the therapeutic process as an exploration into a landscape full of your own creative capacities, strengths, and dreams that already exist. Replace out-dated belief systems with new ones that better reflect your current, authentic self. Continue the process of growing into the person you believe yourself to be. Move from the victim to the empowered. I work in collaborative ways with you, helping to identifying assumptions, thoughts, and beliefs that are keeping you from the experiences, relationships, and life that you want.

For a decade I've been working collaboratively with clients, developing ways to cope with and move through depression , anxiety, trauma, relationship and parenting issues, as well as providing emotional support to individuals and couples facing reproductive health issues, including infertility and perinatal mood and anxiety disorders.
At some point in our lives each of us faces obstacles or barriers we can't seem to overcome on our own. It's part of the human condition. Fortunately, professional counseling and psychotherapy can help you develop ways of moving forward through the places where you feel stuck. The empathic, and non-judgmental therapeutic relationship I offer can help you discover, or rediscover, your own strengths to heal, thrive, and create the relationships and life you desire.

Are you so overwhelmed that you can't focus on your partner, kids, or other meaningful relationships? Do you feel like letting go of patterns is challenging and find yourself obsessing about your body to the point that eating becomes an ordeal? Do you feel like the past is weighing you down and you can't put it where it belongs, that is in the past? Do you engage in behaviors such as drug, alcohol, or other reckless endeavors that bring about tension and conflicts at home, at work, or other social settings?

Many of my clients report that our work has changed their lives. Clients share that they moved from feeling hopeless to feeling happy to be alive; from being overwhelmed by grief to feeling joyful again, even as they carry their grief; and they share how good and empowering it feels to live from the heart. I specialize in adults and couples (all sexual orientations; all types of relationships). My goal for you is not only to reap the benefits of feeling better because your depression has lifted or your anxiety has quelled, but to thrive, in every way.

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 Orinda. 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.
