If you are feeling like a square peg in a round hole, I am the therapist for you. If you or your family member is a zebra in a world of apples and oranges, you will feel right at home. My passion is working with these individuals, whether child or teen or adult, in an authentic, non-judgmental way. Together we will build a space where you can be your full self and practice ways of celebrating who you are. In our sessions we'll do this through drawing, painting, collage, journaling, tarot cards, virtual reality, sand tray, or even just talking about your favorite show or movie.

Suffering from chronic stress, worry, depression, trauma or a noisy inner critic can undermine your ability to cope with the flow of life. You may function on the outside but feel stuck on the inside. Psychological flow requires developing awareness of your inner experience, openness to your feelings and vulnerability and knowing what matters to you and taking steps in that direction. I offer warm, thoughtful, and collaborative psychotherapy to adults who desire change, personal fulfillment, relationship satisfaction and overall well-being. This means knowing what matters to you, your deepest values, and your own guide to living.

Even the richest of lives lived will bring with it many challenges and emotional pain. Unfortunately, it's often natural that we add to that suffering through worries and rumination, obsessive problem-solving, and a fixation on our shame, fears, and doubt. Our work together can help you make sense of this struggle, break free of unhelpful patterns of thinking, and facilitate more conscious and deliberate ways of interpreting and responding to your world. Let's sort out what's important to you and what's getting in the way, explore how and where you'd like to invest your energy, and take control of your emotional wellness.

I am a licensed psychologist who sees individuals, couples and families for more than 20 years. My goal is to help patients live psychologically healthier and more fulfilling lives. My patients want to remove obstacles and recover hope, purpose and themselves. I help explore deeper issues and patterns underlying persistent unhappiness, as well as help navigate life transitions that are overwhelming. Adjusting to uncertainty, new beginnings, endings, isolation, grief, and constantly changing conditions are challenging and can cause us to get stuck. I can help unstick.

I know this feels like one of the lowest moments in your life. Maybe alcohol feels like your closest ally and no one understands. Perhaps the trauma of the past keeps haunting you or the communication between you and your loved ones is not working. You are doing the right thing by reaching out and the fact that you arrived here shows that there is hope ahead. We will find you comfort without the consequences of addiction. Your loved ones will hear you and understand you. A full nights sleep without nightmares is possible. You deserve to exhale and feel peace and security. You are not alone and I would be honored to guide you.

How you feel today is important to me. Many people coming to therapy believe that something is missing. It might be love, understanding, support, meaning, a sense of purpose, lack of control, a job, or a partner. Therapy can help. I would be honored to guide you through a self-empowering journey that could help you enable the changes you would like to achieve in your personal life or within your family. I work directly with individuals, couples, children, and families. My style is gentle, compassionate and authentic, and I provide unconditional acceptance, optimism, patience, and trust.

Depression, anxiety, even relational problems, often have a meaning which--when understood--leads to a more productive and satisfying life. Utilizing a psychodynamic approach, we explore the meaning of the difficulties you are experiencing to heal them and provide you a more fulfilling life. Having worked with all ages, from pre-school to elderly, my primary practice is with adults and adolescents. I specialize in dealing with trauma, and am certified as a Post-Combat Behavioral Health specialist. I am trained in the utilization of EMDR and, when applicable, we may learn to use a mindfulness-based therapy in the treatment of depression and anxiety.

Helping women through life transitions is my passion. As women, we are the helpers, the nurturers, the givers and the teachers. But let's be honest, sometimes we find ourselves facing challenges that feel overwhelming and we feel alone, anxious and depressed. I want to assure you that you are not alone and that it is okay to ask for help.

When it comes to our mental health and our relationships, often we believe that it is better to say nothing and go with the flow. That enduring through difficult times and biting the bullet is better than using our voices to disrupt the cycle of dysfunction around us. Using our voice can be incredibly difficult and at times feel so awkward because we have become used to suffocating our emotions. It is okay to have feelings. It is okay to want change. The true measure of strength is not our ability to endure dysfunction but having the courage to stand up and say, “It stops here.” I can help.

Do you have thoughts that feel like they come out of nowhere, are out of character with who you are, and cause feelings of guilt, worry, or discomfort? In response to these thoughts, do you do things repeatedly such as thinking about things over and over, research online for answers, ask others what they think, or avoid things out of fear that it could lead to something bad happening? Do you ever fear that you could harm yourself or someone you care about despite knowing you don't want to do this? These are just some of the many ways Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is experienced. OCD can be managed successfully using ERP.

I work with motivated individuals who are making a big impact in their work, home, community, and world. Established professionals, entrepreneurs, creatives, business owners, ministry leaders, and mom's in midlife receive specialized support so you can achieve your desired changes in life personally + professionally. Perfectionism, overwhelm, fear of failure, frustrations and shame around recurring struggle keep getting in the way of you feeling connected to what matters most - your work, your family, your health. It can get loud btw your ears, especially after failed attempts of trying to figure things out on your own.

What type of San Rafael mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in San Rafael?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
