Rhonda Gerhard, MFT, CYT, MS, LMFT, CYT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Petaluma
Sometimes we feel over whelmed by life transitions, feelings, thoughts and beliefs. I bring an interactive process to our work that involves mindfulness (non-judgmental present moment awareness), exploration, personal discovery, healing, and integration. One person said, "Rhonda creates an environment that encourages safe introspection, and offers insightful questions that remain with me long after our meetings. Her questions are both anchors and springboards, bringing me closer to myself while simultaneously opening a vision to new perspectives." EM, Retired Executive
Issues may include feelings of self worth, intimacy, anger, anxiety, depression, grief and trauma. We may also focus on working through difficult life transitions in childhood, marital concerns, children moving on, divorce, living as a single adult, choosing not to have children, encountering a serious illness, or other challenges.
Using mindfulness, we label and observe thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations while exploring ideas of acceptance and inner loving kindness. We might also incorporate Integrative Restoration/Yoga Nidra, a guided meditation technique, or Walk and Talk Therapy. See more info at www.rhondagerhard.com .
