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.

Are you a woman that longs for intimacy and closeness, but don't want to repeat a painful past? Perhaps you have been cheated on, treated like your feelings are unimportant, or have been hurt in an emotional or physical way. You long for touch and connection, but want to feel cared for and safe. Part of you may be rushing towards finding a new love interest, and part of you may be backing away. Through relationship counseling and EMDR, I help women to heal from painful intimacy experiences and teach them how to develop loving and satisfying relationships.

I use Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT/Tapping) and Motivational Interviewing (MI) to respectfully guide you through areas of ambivalence to change. Together, I help you create your next steps for the change you want, leading to greater satisfaction with life. According to medical literature, 80% of all illness comes from mental or emotional stress. While you may not be able to change the source of stress, you can learn to have a healthier relationship with it. Once you learn how to remove limiting beliefs and calm overwhelming emotions, the things you want to do come more easily.

We are all faced with many struggles today related to COVID-19, its health and safety issues, possible financial loss, and uncertainty about what the future may bring and now the fires. I have been fortunate over many years to experience wonderful people grappling with difficulties around work, relationships, parenting, illness and/or other potentially painful aspects of life. The work that we do in psychotherapy is individually tailored to help clients to reduce emotional (and sometimes physical) pain and to take the actions (small or big) that we figure out need to be done to face these difficult situations and make them better.

Most people suffer from unconscious guilt and shame stemming from their childhood traumas. Guilt causes us to unconsciously do self-destructive things. Shame causes us to isolate ourselves and hide our true selves. Both guilt and shame make people feel undeserving and isolated. My approach to therapy is to help patients find relief from their irrational guilt and feelings of shame and to develop a realistic sense of pride in who they are.

Part of my philosophy of therapy is that if you can't laugh with someone, you probably don't want to cry with them, either. I do both with my clients because I think accepting, respecting & embracing all of your feelings and experiences-- from joy to pain to absurdity and everything else-- is what healing and wholeness are all about. Therapy to me isn't about reaching some outside ideal of perfection; it's about connecting with your true & one-of-a-kind self and becoming who YOU really are.

Are you tired from all the striving? Have your achievements brought you fulfillment, or are you even more unhappy, more anxious, more depressed after achieving so many things in the outer world? Is your happiness dependent on your connection to yourself and the natural world or is it dependent on the story you've created about your achievements and what that says about you? If the uncertainty in the world has left you more anxious, more stressed, more worried, then it is the perfect time to make that inner shift, that inner reset.

Certified in EMDR therapy by the EMDR International Association, I find EMDR to be a powerful tool that I use along with other treatment modalities to facilitate healing. I specialize in working with trauma, eating disorders, addiction recovery, grief, depression, anxiety and relationship issues. I especially work with clients who have trust and abandonment issues due to childhood trauma, neglect or abusive parents. Early dysfunctional family patterns and lack of nurturing can affect self-esteem, intimate relationships and work performance.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in San Rafael, this list of Teletherapyists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in San Rafael listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in San Rafael are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in San Rafael

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in San Rafael you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in San Rafael and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in San Rafael or family therapy in San Rafael.
