It's another day feeling inundated by work and family demands. Working, parenting, and home schooling are three jobs you never thought you would be doing at the same time. Your sweet kid went to bed late last night again and woke up tired and complaining about everything. You worry she might fall behind in school or that she's developing bad habits. Your protectiveness and patience turns to irritation and you tell her to “Just stop!” She stays in her room for most of the day doesn’t say another word to you until dinner. You want what’s best for your kid. It’s confusing not knowing what just happened and why.

We are living in unprecedented times that can feel quite surreal due to the corona virus pandemic. We don't know when life will return to normal or that that "normal" will even look like. This can be very unsettling and therapy can offer skills in coping and adaptation to what is. I work with adults of all ages who are in transition. How can we manage our expectations and the losses that come with an uncertain future? Is it possible to thrive during times of uncertainty? How do we develop resilience when so much is yet unknown. Is it healthy to feel traumatized or to feel frightened or angry? What can we do with those feelings?

No matter how dark your struggle, there is a part of you that knows how to heal. The map to wholeness is inside you, like the map to a flower is already within its seed. I trust the timing and direction of this process and strive to create a safe, trustworthy environment for it to unfold. My style is warm and real. I will not diagnose or try and "fix" you. I will not analyze you. I will pay deep attention to what's happening in for you in the moment - mind, body and spirit.

Somatic Experiencing (SE) takes healing to a deeper level. Combined with 'top-down' approaches, SE helps identify strengths and intentions beneath painful survival patterns. Shame, fear and anger transform into vital life energy. Surviving becomes thriving.

Many people come to me experiencing anxiety, depression, and shame - I help people move beyond these and feel less alone. Life is messy - I help people through the messiness. I work with adolescents/teens, adults feeling stuck, people across the gender and sexuality spectrums, and white people seeking to support anti-racism through self-examination of their experience of whiteness.

Therapy is a collaborative relationship, as individual as the people in the room. Often the work involves slowing down and creating a secure space for being open, curious and able to revisit and make sense of thoughts, memories and feelings that give rise to present difficulties. I'm especially attentive to your higher powers of perception and positive self determination. Together we resolve present-day problems with roots in the past, changing patterns that produce familiar and unwanted results so you are freer to choose the life you want.

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?
