Talking with someone about what's really going on isn't easy, but it can help you profoundly and in ways that last. Even while you're getting used to being in therapy, you may notice you feel differently, maybe you're approaching old problems in a different way, or just being able to understand them better. That way you don't feel so overwhelmed or helpless. Over time, you can find new ways to negotiate your feelings, relationships and work situations. I'll listen to you with warmth and understanding; I'll talk with you to help you figure out what can work for you; I'll share my thoughts, but not impose them. I'll respect your experience, background and wisdom.

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

I offer psychotherapy for people who have a specific issue they want to address or if there is no clear-cut understanding of the problem but life doesn't feel quite right. I collaborate with my clients to understand what they most would like their lives to feel like. Next, we identify the past and current experiences that may be interfering with living this kind of life. Most importantly we identify the constricting beliefs developed from these experiences and empower them to question these assumptions. Over time, they are able to adopt newer - more self-enhancing - beliefs about life and the world so that a satisfying and meaningful life becomes their reality.

Surprising as it may be, what happens to us does not determine our happiness so much as how we relate to what happens. Psychotherapy provides an environment and an opportunity to explore the ways you relate to your experience, and in so doing to help you have more fulfilling relationships with others, and a greater sense of meaning and understanding in your life. It also helps you make better choices and change unhelpful, limiting behaviors and relational patterns. Incorporating Buddhist mindfulness practice, as well as current understanding of how the brain processes information, I'm very engaged and collaborative in helping you achieve the goals you want to address in our work.

I practice psychotherapy from a engaged, kind and collaborative stance. I have trained in several contemporary and well-researched psychotherapy modalities that are designed to maximize both a sense of safety and trust in the therapy relationship, as well as demonstrative, positive change in a client's life. Many clients who have found previous psychotherapy less than effective for them find that they are able to meet their therapeutic goals in their work with me.

My style of psychotherapy is to help clients increase their Emotional Intelligence, which means developing greater self awareness and ability to manage one's own feelings and reactions. I combine Gestalt Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Body Awareness Practices, Family Systems, (EMDR) for trauma, and Mindfulness Practices. When people can have greater intimacy with themselves, they can have greater intimacy with others.

Healthy relationships make healthy people. Unfortunately, about 50% of our society, while their parents may have loved them dearly, didn't get enough attachment and connection. When this happens, the normal / natural response is depression, anger, excess perfectionism, feeling uncomfortable in your skin, etc. While I may use several modalities, I am always being present and attuning to you in a way that gives you permission to be who you are. My experience is this creates a re-wiring of the "attachment / connecting" neuropathways in your brain. My clients, usually between 6 months and 2 years experience significant emotional shifts that allow them to feel comfortable in their own skin.

I'm a licensed psychotherapist in San Francisco focused on helping young to middle aged professionals get the most from their personal and professional lives. If you're looking for a therapist, I imagine that on some level you are in distress. Our work can focus on solving immediate issues while undertaking the deeper process of addressing underlying causes so that unwanted patterns don't repeat.

Napa Interfaith Counseling

In 94559 - Nearby to Novato.

Many of my clients would like to move more deeply into self discovery after working successfully with practical issues that have brought them into therapy. My approach to inner work is influenced most by C. G. Jung and a contemporary of Jung's, Fritz Kunkel, who established the We Psychology. Two of my most important mentors worked directly with Jung and previously with Kunkel. I facilitate a stronger connection to each person's own "Creative Center" and a clear perspective on the influence of egocentricity in our lives through dream work, journal writing, artistic and vocational expression and reflection on meaningful events and relationships.

I work primarily around self-acceptance, learning how to achieve intimacy and breaking free of conditioning. My experience is that this work helps to heal trauma/ PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), depression, low self-esteem, addictions (alcohol/drugs/sex) and anxiety. I do this work with individuals, couples, families and adolescents. My approach is holistic, meaning that I work with the mind, body and spirit. I also welcome those who simply want the added flexibility good therapy can achieve, enabling them to live fuller, richer, happier lives.

The process of therapy is and should be tailored to each individual's life experience. Research shows that clients in therapy, who seek assistance to deal with a whole range of issues, challenges, thoughts, and emotions, can experience a positive benefit. In our collaborative work, we will complete a comprehensive biopsychosocial assessment, where we look at many life factors that may be contributing to those challenges for which therapy is being considered. After an assessment, we will have a clearer idea of core values, possible goals and many ideas on designing a flexible plan that is easy to understand and use to bring about the transformation desired.

James Hillman once said, "We've had a hundred years of psychotherapy and the world is getting worse." While there are many occasions where the validation and listening endemic to psychotherapy makes sense, there are times where we over assume that "feeling better" and "changing behavior" are the same. Grey Matters International, Inc. goes after the forgotten brain laws to behavior change that therapists miss when processing hours and hours of dialogues with people. Utilizing a cutting edge technology to facilitate the emotional process of change, we can make the therapy process way more effective, faster, and with less money spent.
