Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Welcome, my name Dorene Paul and I am a licensed therapist and marriage counselor. I have had the honor of practicing therapy for 16 years, working with adults, couples and youth with a wide variety of issues. In my experience, each person comes to therapy with a unique set of experiences, feelings, issues, gifts, goals, therefore I use a variety of therapeutic approaches, from cognitive to current psychodynamic approaches and EMDR for those dealing with past trauma. In therapy I am your companion and counselor on a deeply meaningful journey. I specialize in working with clients dealing with depression, anxiety, loss, past trauma, relationship issues and substance abuse. My approach is to align with you and use the most appropriate therapeutic models for both the individual and for the issues. My ultimate goal is for you to become the most joyful, grounded and authentic person you can be. And for your life to become richer and more comfortable as you move through it with the confidence to accomplish your goals.

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.
