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 work with adults and couples to understand the despair of anxiety, depersonalization, and isolation - the insight into trauma, abuse, and abandonment we develop is often the reason that clients work with me for longer periods of time.
Although most people are depressed or angry at times, they generally find a way to deal with the situation. There are times, however, when a person loses hope or is overwhelmed. They or others decide they might use some help. Sometimes a woman or a man decides that they would like to adjust their life style and emphasize their sense of self. If you work in Silicon Valley, I can use my experience in industry to help you unblock your potential and design effective strategies for greater satisfaction. If you seek spiritual depth, my years as a guide may help unfold meaning.

I've also done extensive educational lecturing and have run numerous groups on topics concerning family recovery from substance abuse, parenting issues, and helping young adults (and their parents) with the changes and developmental challenges that are inherent in healthy emotional growth.
My goal is to help empower people to live their lives as fully as possible. I believe we all want to feel safe and understood in the context of our unique histories and present circumstances. However,there are times when everyone gets stuck. We may come to desire help letting go of the pain from our past so we might develop new joyful and productive ways to live our lives now. I've done this work with individuals, couples and families, in private practice and in agencies for the past 27 years.

Domestic Abuse Therapists
Domestic abuse can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. It may include behaviors meant to scare, physically harm, or control a partner. And while every relationship is different, domestic abuse and violence typically involves an unequal power dynamic in which one partner tries to assert control over the other in a variety of ways.

If you're looking for a Walnut Creek domestic abuse or domestic violence therapist, these professionals provide domestic abuse therapy and counseling in Walnut Creek.
