Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I specialize in working with clients who have a variety of medical conditions, including neurological disorders, physically disabling conditions, aging-related conditions and other impairments. My clients also include Caregivers and LGBT persons who live with a disabling condition. For over 25 years I have helped adults with both emotional and logistical concerns related to chronic medical and aging-related conditions, including short and long term care planning, and adults with a variety of life issues, including relationship and communication problems, depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem. I hold a Master of Science degree in Rehabilitation Counseling and am a Nationally Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (certified 1986), as well as a California licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (licensed 1989). Please see my website www.allangrill.com for more information about how I may be of help to you. Where do you turn for help if you are: - Physically disabled with a neurological condition such as Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, Huntington’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, stroke, traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injury? - Diagnosed with cognitive impairment such as early stage or early onset Alzheimer’s Disease, Lewy Body Dementia, Vascular Dementia, other dementing condition or traumatic brain injury? - A disabled LGBT person? - A Caregiver and/or family member of a loved one with a physical disability or a cognitive impairment? As a California licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, and a nationally Certified Rehabilitation Counselor, I work with clients throughout California via telemedicine sessions. Telemedicine sessions are conducted via videoconferencing, similar to Skype but HIPAA-compliant*, and/or over the telephone. The videoconferencing software is free and is easy to use on your computer or tablet. Telemedicine offers important advantages over in-office sessions to people who: - No longer drive or have limited access to transportation - Are physically disabled and have mobility issues - Have busy schedules - Have no professionals in their area with the particular expertise I offer Please contact me to discuss whether telemedicine sessions are appropriate for you and your needs. You can also learn more about telemedicine at my website: www.allangrill.com

Featured Therapist 

Kelly Duggan Shearer, M.A.
Patricia Ravitz, M.A.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
San Rafael, CA

My therapeutic style is non-judgmental, supportive, and interactive. My work is based on establishing a safe environment where trust can grow. I view symptoms as a way to call attention to unrecognized needs and unexpressed feelings. The goals of treatment include; learning to identify and express emotions, learning to set appropriate boundaries, developing skills such as self-soothing and impluse control and improving self-esteem.
