"As my client you can expect a sensitive, interactive, and direct therapist with a sense of humor. Together, we will discuss those behaviors and experiences that cause you pain; developing coping alternatives, easing your stress and anxiety. My life experience, education and work history leads me to have unique perspective to help you. My early career working in Montessori Education taught me the value of self-direction and respect for people of all ages. As a program coordinator in a battered women's shelter I learned about the effects of violence, loss, chemical dependency and powerlessness."

When we participate in escapist behavior (drinking too much, overindulging on sugar, avoiding confrontation, Netflix binges), we can feel stuck and hopeless. We get caught in these painful ways of coping because they work, at least temporarily. I specialize in helping clients get unstuck by incorporating brain-based education and suggestions for change.

Sometimes this shows up as dissatisfaction with their bodies; some are chronic dieters that struggle with the tension and anxiety of restriction or the shame and “out of control” feeling of bingeing. Other times, clients struggle with trying to be perfect and have overbearing, harsh inner critics. There can be a strong desire to “fix” themselves while also longing to feel more free. "

They want to be free of the effects of those experiences. Each person sets their own pace, but newer, effective approaches enable most people to reach their therapeutic goals more quickly than they could with older methods. These newer methods require out of session practice and record-keeping, so that we might better understand the events that cause difficulties and develop new ways to respond.

You feel like everyone has an idea how you ‘should’ act. You might even feel like you have to offer ‘proof’ by telling your story or letting others see your pain.

Out of Network Therapists
An out-of-network Therapist in Oakland has not agreed to any set rate with your insurer. Your plan may require higher co-pays, deductibles and co-insurance for out-of-network care and you may need to pay the difference between your insurer's allowed amount and what the Therapist charges.

The costs for an Oakland out-of-network Therapist also depend on your type of plan:

In a Health Maintenance Organization, or HMO, or Exclusive Provider Network, or EPO, you generally have to pay the full cost of any out-of-network care.

In a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) or Point-of-Service (POS) plan, you will usually have to pay a higher deductible and or a higher co-pay plus a higher percentage co-insurance plus, the difference between the allowed amount and your provider's actual rate.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Oakland are able to work with a wide range of issues.
