Additional Training: Trauma Focused-CBT, grief & loss , compassion fatigue, and attachment-play therapy.
One of the amazing aspects of therapy is that it provides a unique opportunity for people to have a space where the focus is on their needs and growth. Very few other spaces exist where your needs and well-being can be the priority. This is a key part of the healing power of therapy, which is why I believe it is so important you find a therapist who is a good fit for you. COVID-19: I am offering telehealth sessions by secure video or phone.

In everyone's lives there are times of difficulty, life transitions, unwanted change, loss , and fears. Talking to someone who can assist you in sorting out your thoughts and feelings about these challenges can be very helpful. If you are feeling trapped in unhealthy patterns that are keeping you stuck or making you feel badly about yourself, I can help you identify them and how to change them to feel more empowered and fulfilled. If you are experiencing stress, we can work together to identify and address its causes and develop multiple tools to manage and decrease it.

I help adults and couples with relationship and codependency issues, grief and loss , depression, anxiety and addictive patterns with self and others. I help you to create a relationship with yourself and others based on respect, caring and trust. This helps build the feeling of safety that lies at the core of any successful therapy. My goal is to support you in finding and strengthening your own inner voice. When we learn to free ourselves from old, stuck patterns of relating (in mind and body), we often feel a lightness of being that allows us to experience more joy in our everyday lives.

Are you feeling stuck? Do you feel like instead of a spiral you are travelling in an endless circle of sadness, fear, arguments, grief , or simply confusion? Sometimes life get's hard and sometimes we get stuck. Therapy is here to help in these moments-- through gentle exploration of your thoughts, feelings, and actions we can work to uncover the places where you are feeling trapped in order to help you create new thoughts, healthier feelings, and actions more in alignment with the person you want to be: whether it be happier, more peaceful, more successful, more calm.

My clinical focus lies in the areas of traumatic life events, grief , loss & bereavement , cross-cultural family conflict & gender transition.
Things that may have felt difficult prior to the pandemic carry a very different load now, as we learn to navigate life with Covid. While the idea of therapy may have felt radical before, it can now offer us a roadmap to developing greater internal strength to steer through the uncertainty. It is deep within our unconscious that we meet our true selves and can then begin the profound work of developing mechanisms for the lives we are seeking. I view it as a great privilege to bear witness to the strength that emerges from the courage of confronting the vulnerability of our own psychology.

Life can feel overwhelming, confusing and difficult. Relationships can be challenging. Change and loss can lead to uncertainty. All of this can lead to feelings of anxiety and depression. I help people make sense of their experience, navigate through difficult times and increase their self-awareness to achieve a greater sense of purpose, freedom, and choice in their lives. The therapeutic relationship is a collaborative space where you can work to understand and resolve your feelings, explore thoughts and behaviors that may have you feeling “stuck” in your life and identify relationship patterns that interfere with your well-being.

I also work with teens, and with individuals who have issues of grief and loss , career transition, anxiety, sexual abuse, and trauma.
I am currently not taking new clients. Are you feeling emotions that are difficult to handle; issues surfacing that you're ready to take a look at? Feeling stressed, anxious or depressed? Possibly your relationships are strained or unsatisfying. Maybe you're struggling with parenting a teenager, or you are a teenager wanting someone to listen? These are all areas of interest to me. I have worked with individuals, couples for over 22 years and am still amazed that while therapy is often not easy, it is truly worth the effort for most people. I have a calm, supportive, interactive style and welcome working with you.

I am trained in EMDR, Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing, Internal Family Systems, Gottman Couples Method, Grief Recovery, and NVC and other methods that help talk therapy bring about emotional, mental and behavioral changes to bring the best to you to your life circumstances.
Trying to make something work by pretending to feel, think or act in ways that go against how you really feel is exhausting to the body, mind and your spirit. This realization can feel very uncomfortable. However, it is the door to finding both your aliveness and yourself as you investigate what you really feel and think about the situations that are distressing in yourself, family and work situations. I'd like to help you make the actual changes that you need to make. I help you find and focus on what is actually alive in you. All sessions are TeleHealth that creates a safe environment in the convenience of your home or office.

Specializations include bereavement which may alternate between feelings of melancholy, worthlessness, anger or numbness.
Are you feeling caught between contradictory feelings of hope and despair? Finding a space where we can feel deeply understood is important to developing a secure sense of self. Psychotherapy offers a reflective space to explore the wordless thoughts, the nameless pain or the inner conflicts that may inhibit us. Through therapy a greater sense of integrity and meaning in life is possible. When we respond with genuine understanding and acceptance, hope may be restored and joy found. I listen to clients with openness and intuition. I encourage those I work with to begin to trust their own inner resources and find their own resilience.

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.

Grief Therapists
Grief is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.

If you're looking for a Walnut Creek grief therapist, these professionals provide grief therapy and counseling in Walnut Creek.
