Rachael Vaughan, MA, MFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in San Francisco
JUNGIAN-ORIENTED, WITH EMDR. I have an engaged, relational approach, grounded in modern research on the brain, trauma and attachment. I believe the goal of therapy is to realistically become who you truly are--not to fix you, or tell you how to be. If you work with me, we'll look at your personal, family and cultural history, and the beliefs you hold about yourself and the world. Where we find traumas, disturbing memories, negative beliefs and uncomfortable feelings, we can use a variety of methods to loosen then, learn from them and heal them, including SE and EMDR.
I work with individuals, couples and groups. Specialties include: - anxiety, trauma and stress, - depression, - bullying, including workplace bullying - finding/keeping a good relationship, - surviving divorce and other forced transitions, - PTSD, - multicultural identity and immigration issues, - managing illness and regaining health - career decisions. Please see my website for more details.
British, born in Asia, I lived for many years in France before moving to the US. I understand the corporate world from the inside. I teach at CIIS and ITP, publish the Facebook psych newsfeed (www.facebook.com/Psychnews), and write the Ethnopsychology Blog (www.ethnopsychology-blog.blogspot.com)
