After 30 years of doing psychotherapy with individuals and families, I am shifting to doing only psychological assessments with children, teens, and adults. I currently have a waiting list for psychological assessments. In addition I am forming therapy groups designed to provide emotional and resource support to caregivers of spouses who have a neurodegenerative disorder, such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and Multiple Sclerosis. The groups will begin in March 2020. Please call today for a free one-hour consultation.

Do you ever ask yourself, "Why do I keep doing the same things but expect different outcomes?" Or "Do I look at the world differently than all my family and friends?" Life can feel stressful, overwhelming, and out of control at times. I try to help life feel a little bit more manageable and work through issues at your own pace. Psychotherapy is about an exploration of self and the world around you. As a psychotherapist, I am here to provide guidance through this exploration in a safe place and to improve interaction with those you love.

Sometimes what brings us to a place of needing help becomes fuel for great transformation. As a therapist, I am in the business of transformation. Often folks come to therapy for relief from certain symptoms or challenges, and understandably so. However, there is also an opportunity in therapy to cultivate a tremendous depth in relationship to ourselves. This depth can infuse our lives with meaning, purpose and a recognition of our intrinsic value in the world. In this light, sometimes our symptoms are signposts telling us that we may be off track. They draw us into change, however uncomfortably. It's an honor to be such a guide.

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.

As LGBTQ people we often find ourselves wondering "where do I belong in this world?" and "why can't I just be myself?" It seems like we've tried everything but we don't feel like we belong or we are in a safe place to live & work. We often wonder... when is this going to get better? When can I just live my life fully how I am? Sometimes we feel sad and it can be a very lonely place. We can even forget just how special and unique we are because we are so different and surrounded by those who just don't get it. We really want someone who can connect to us and make our experiences feel validated, reminding us that we are beautiful.

With over 30 years experience, my approach is holistic integrating the connection between mind, body, heart and spirit. Certified in EMDR therapy by the EMDR International Association, I find EMDR to be a powerful tool that I use along with other treatment modalities to facilitate healing. I specialize in working with trauma, eating disorders, addiction recovery, grief, depression, anxiety and relationship issues. I especially work with clients who have trust and abandonment issues due to childhood trauma, neglect or abusive parents. Early dysfunctional family patterns and lack of nurturing can affect self-esteem, intimate relationships and work performance.

Resulting depression and anxiety, compulsive behaviors such as overeating, overspending, alcohol abuse and unhappy, frustrating relationship choices, can be changed. My style of working has developed over many years of practice and is interactive. Clients would most likely describe me as warm, and responsive.

Clinical psychotherapy is a process of deepening self awareness and strengthening authenticity. The subtle art of therapy occurs by taking an honest look at emotional patterns and behaviors, and understanding and liberating any shame that exists at the core which frequently fuels mental health disorders. In my psychotherapy practice I specialize in working with teens. I also encourage the involvement of families when appropriate, as powerful lasting changes can result from shifting family dynamics. The gift of psychotherapy is the ability to be in charge of ourselves with confidence, emotional intelligence, and deep inner peace.

Self-Harming Therapists
Self-harm (SH) or deliberate self-harm (DSH) is the deliberate infliction of damage to your own body. It includes cutting, burning, scratching, banging or hitting yourself, interfering with wound healing, and the ingestion of toxic substances or objects.

If you're looking for help with self-harming in Novato or for someone who self harms, or cuts themselves, or bangs or hits themselves, these Novato therapists provide counseling for self harming in Novato. They include therapists, who understand self harming in Novato, psychologists and counselors. They can provide self harming counseling in Novato or treatment for self harming.
