Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Who I work with I work with groups, families, and individuals ages 4 through adulthood to address the following issues: • Trauma, including recovery from childhood abuse, domestic violence, and crime • Grief and loss Anxiety and depression Addiction (for individuals recovering from an addiction or their loved ones) Responses to having a family member with developmental delay, dementia, acquired brain injury, or major mental illness Coping with major medical events, including terminal or life threatening illness or long term disability. Sexual orientation and gender identity Life enrichment, including enhancing your creativity, managing stress and life transitions, increasing communication and relationship skills, and clarifying your vision for the future. I welcome people of all cultures, spiritual beliefs, physical abilities, gender identities, and sexual orientations. How I work with clients I use ideas from several counseling approaches. Humanistic: Human beings have a natural impulse to grow towards health and wholeness. That impulse flourishes best in a safe and supportive environment. If you are in therapy with me, your physical and emotional safety is my first concern. I will strive to balance the challenge to grow with support and encouragement. Neurolinguistic, cognitive, and mindfulness based therapies: The human mind is a powerful tool. Many people can improve their lives by learning to use this tool more effectively. If you are in therapy with me, I may teach you techniques such as tracking your thoughts, identifying thought distortions and unconscious beliefs, using meditation and guided imagery, and using positive affirmations to help you achieve your goals. Somatic and creative arts therapies: Much of human feeling, experience, and belief is stored in non-verbal parts of our bodies and brains. The result is that you often know more than you think you know. If you are in therapy with me, I will offer you options to use creative arts and action methods so that you can access those parts of your knowledge and wisdom. Existential: Some human experiences force us to grapple with questions about life's meaning. As part of your growth and healing, you may need to explore spiritual or philosophical questions. If this is true for you, I will support you, knowing that it is not my job to give you the answers, but to encourage you to fully explore your questions.

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.
