Have you had a recent difficult or traumatic life experience that you can't recover from on your own? Did you grow up in a chaotic home where it felt hard to be seen or get your needs met? You may have felt an underlying anxiety and not enough soothing due to issues beyond your control. If you struggle in your current relationships and seem to experience too many painful feelings like fear, anger, sadness, shame, or guilt you probably have unresolved trauma, even if it doesn't seem to match your idea of what that is. I can help you overcome these damaging experiences and negative feelings so that you can feel more at peace inside.

Wow, 2020 has started off with some crazy and different challenges, like sheltering in place! Being a home-schooling parent to your children while being a worker from home, or being around people 24/7 and trying to keep the peace. You are finding that prioritizing is complicated when everyone seems to need you. But what about you? Can't seem to find a healthy balance that includes time for yourself? Seeking the help of an experienced therapist may be exactly what you need at this time. You don't have to continue drowning in overwhelm. Just pick up the phone for a free consultation. Isn't it worth giving it a try, today?

Are you experiencing anxiety, having difficulty concentrating due to fear, upsetting thoughts, or unwelcomed physical (somatic) sensations? Are you taken by surprise with Intense and disturbing emotional reactions that seem out of place with the present situation? Do relationships trigger responses that you regret or feel out of control in expressing? These responses are the result of trauma - whether developmental trauma (trauma due to painful and/or abusive experiences in childhood) or trauma that is a result of a specific incident.

To others, it seems like you have it all. But underneath lives a different story. Despite your outward success, you feel haunted sometimes by feelings of failure, conflict, self-doubt. At certain moments, a gnawing sense overcomes you, telling you: Something is not right. You've made changes but somehow still end up in the same unsatisfying patterns, repeating the same unhelpful behaviors -- feeling more and more alone. You want to understand your patterns and your past so you can create a different future. You want to learn to feel differently about yourself and how you relate with others. You want to find a different way.

It’s no secret. Many boys hate the idea of therapy or even just talking about their feelings. I’ve been working almost exclusively with boys (ages 5-18) and their families for over 15 years. If your son and family feel overwhelmed or distant from each other, I take a fresh look at your family’s unique strengths and build on these to work through conflict, reconnect, and re-establish joy as a daily practice. My work is driven by the latest research in neurobiology.

Lasting change occurs in therapy when one identifies and works through their concerns that have been outside their awareness. I develop a non-judgmental, intimate working alliance with my clients, in order to facilitate this self-understanding, both emotionally and intellectually. Such work fosters growth and creative responses to long standing difficulties in relationship to one's self and others. In return for investing themselves fully, my clients are offered the freedom to be more completely who they are, while also being able to maintain close and fulfilling relationships.

In my work I help my clients learn to release unnecessary suffering and meet the difficulties they cannot change. This brings an increased capacity for happiness. I help my clients release the need for perfection and move instead towards wholeness and completeness - holding both the joy and sorrow of life.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in San Rafael, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.

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
