"What are the qualities that people look for in a therapist? First, they want someone they can easily talk to and connect with. They want someone who makes them feel safe. Someone that can provide an understanding of their problems which can result in practical solutions. A therapist who is willing to listen to their needs and pay attention to their concerns without any judgments. Someone who can make sense of their symptoms and pain, such as depression and anxiety, so that they can find emotional relief."

"Marriage is complicated. When trouble starts, most couples try to fix it on their own. That's a good thing. The problems come when the couple isn't able to repair what's broken, yet they don't seek professional help soon enough. One study reports that most couples wait six years before going into therapy. By then, the layers of pain have piled up. <> After working with couples for many years, I've developed a unique method of untangling the hurt and getting to the heart of the matter. Most couples can heal relatively quickly and enjoy lasting results."

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in San Rafael view problems within the family as the result not of particular members' behaviors, but of the family's group dynamic. The family is seen as a complex system having its own language, roles, rules, beliefs, needs and patterns. The therapist helps each individual member understand how their childhood family operated, their role in that system, and how that experience has shaped their role in the current family. Therapists with the MFT credential are usually trained in Family Systems therapy.
