Personal Statement

Personal Statement:

About My Practice

Office Hours
First consultations are offered free of charge. My office is conveniently located in Hayes Valley, with abundant parking options nearby. My services may be reimbursable on an out-of-network basis by PPO insurance plans. My rates are reasonable, and in some cases I can provide a sliding scale for those in need. Pls see my website to learn more about my background and how I may be able to help you. Even if I cannot directly assist you as your therapist, I would be glad to provide a list of referrals for therapists that have a different fee structure or that work in different ways, and who may be better suited for your needs.

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.
