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.

Life is inherently stressful and sometimes can feel overwhelming. Seeking guidance is a sign of strength and courage. We will work together first to address your current symptoms and alleviate your suffering. As you begin to feel better, we can then shift into working with longer term patterns and challenges. As you embark on this journey, I offer a mindful, compassionate and collaborative container for our process together.

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?

I enjoy working with adolescents(16 and older), adults and couples. I have fourteen years experience as a clinician and have been licensed for the past 10 years. I use many different tools to facilitate change, including CBT and ACT for symptom relief and the techniques and processes of Hakomi, a body-centered depth psychotherapy, which integrates western psychology, advances in neurobiology, and the mindfulness practices of Buddhist Meditation. I believe that decreasing unhealthy stress, restoring trust in relationships, and changing self-limiting belief systems can lead to transformation. I use a warm, friendly, and engaged style of therapy.

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. As a private practice psychotherapist based in SF & Marin, I primarily work with adults, but also love to assist children in the healing process.

I treat alcohol, drug, and eating problems, depression, dual-diagnosis, anxiety, trauma, bariatric surgery patients, and relationship issues. Adults and teenagers address how the use of substances, alcohol, drugs, food, impacts their lives in negative and unproductive ways. We seek solutions together to more satisfying lifestyles and relationships. I work with couples and individuals having difficulties in relationships, wanting to resolve problems rather than separating or divorcing as the only solution. I work to separate past hurts from present reality. As an Equine Specialist, I use horses and exotic animals as requested.

Out of Network Therapists
An out-of-network Therapist in San Rafael 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 a San Rafael 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.
