Blending mindfulness practice with an experiential, somatic approach, we'll discover creative, practical ways to help you follow your inner truth and make more meaningful life choices.
The heart and emphasis of my work is to help you know and trust your deepest feelings and to live an emotionally authentic life. When you become more intimate and present with yourself you become more intimate and authentic with others. As you know yourself better, you'll discover how certain emotions, behaviors and beliefs have shaped your life and relationships and you'll become empowered to make many important changes. For over 20 years, I've helped couples and individuals develop increased self-trust and self-awareness, greater life purpose and more conscious, loving and intimate relationships.

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.

My style integrates contemporary approaches, such as Client-Centered therapy, with alternative ones, including Mindfulness (the mind becomes a useful tool and not a relentless tyrant), the Ennegram (a map for self-awareness and evolution) and Somatics (strengthens the connection between mind, body and spirit).
Is it hard for you to really value and love yourself, creating difficulties in your relationships or career? Are you overwhelmed and at the mercy of your thoughts and feelings? I will partner with you to address issues such as these and what is most important to you, with respect, compassion and insight. You can develop a greater ability to be in the present moment - where life happens. You can improve your relationships, your confidence to face challenges and your ability to make decisions. My greatest intention is to empower you to love and live your truest self!

I apply an integrative, holistic approach that draws on psychodynamic theories, attachment theory, existential/humanistic and mindfulness -based therapies, cognitive-behavioral therapy, somatic traditions, transpersonal psychology, and positive psychology, according to the needs of each unique individual.
My work with individual adults at all stages of life recognizes the transformative power of even the most challenging life transitions. These opportunities may take many forms: fears about mortality and aging, grief and loss, questions about career and calling, spiritual and existential crises, shifts in sexual identity and orientation, and relationship challenges. I also work with couples (including LGBTQ) and adult family members who want to improve their relationships. Y sí, hablo español.

I use CBT and mindfulness to help clients learn how to notice their thoughts and feelings, challenge distortions and shift perspective; EMDR therapy gets to the root by processing disturbing memories that have lead to negative beliefs.
I help clients of all ages process and heal from traumatic experiences; these are things that happened earlier in life that may have been overwhelming and created false, negative core beliefs about oneself, others, and the world. Beliefs such as “I’m not good enough, I can’t trust people; I'm not safe” can significantly impact how a person feels, thinks and reacts to the world, and lead to issues such as depression, anxiety, and substance abuse. I help clients process those experiences, transforming the negative beliefs into positive, helpful ones. This allows clients to experience more joy and ease in their life and relationships.

I draw from several therapies including play therapy, mindfulness therapy, psychodynamic therapy, family systems, and cognitive behavioral therapy/ERP, for children preschool through high school.
Are you concerned or confused by your child's behavior? Has your child's teacher suggested your child work with a therapist? Are you worried that your child is under stress? Do you feel like you are not a good parent for your child? It is very difficult to parent a child who is struggling with challenging feelings and behaviors. I provide therapeutic support to kids who struggle with ADHD, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, adoption issues, learning disabilities, behavioral challenges, academic or social issues, or major life changes. I offer support for parents.

I am informed by systems theories and psychodynamic theories but also have experience with CBT, DBT and mindfulness .
Making the time for yourself to feel happier, to alleviate stress or anxiety, to find meaning in your life or to improve your relationships- these are all some of the reasons that people decide to enter therapy. In today’s world we are all confronted with many existential issues that can make us question our purpose in life. Therapy is an act of self-care and an investment into yourself to find how to get the most out of your life, to feel happier, more connected and fulfilled. I have worked in a variety of settings over 15 years in this field.

My practice combines creative approaches with mindfulness toward leading an examined life.
My practice focusses on a skillset that supports feeling sufficient in experiences of loss and cultivates agency for self comfort during tides of grief. Client and therapist share a process of inquiry to match the client's nagging anxiety and depression related to turbulent times and systems that limit individual choices with a client's refreshed resilient perspective. Through a trauma-informed practice, we redesign relationship changes in business/home, and we re-narrate old stories that have people fooling themselves from knowing their own strengths.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients in San Rafael with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.

Mindfulness Based therapists in San Rafael can help with issues like anxiety and depression in their role as San Rafael MBCT therapists.
