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.

Since each person or relationship is Unique I make use of several therapeutic techniques. I have a wealth of experience helping people with a variety of issues either through the means of individual psychotherapy or couples counseling.

My approach to psychotherapy is a family systems/attachment approach. Knowing when it is safe to approach or avoid someone is learned in your upbringing. Those beliefs and strategies in relating to others may have worked in childhood, but now as an adult, these strategies are no longer working. Each person's way of loving is different. You will learn your love style while I provide you with a caring, nurturing, but challenging presence. I will help you understand your style, teach you new skills, and challenge you to apply those new strategies in relationship with others. I do provide a free consultation, when clients ask me.

In laymen's terms, psychotherapy is the opportunity to talk about and process your problems or challenges with a trained therapist. Sometimes, we don't need someone to try to fix our problems for us, which is what most of our friends try to do when we talk about them. Sometimes we need someone who will listen and be a sounding board so we can think through and process for ourselves. I want to support you with your goals and your needs and we can make a therapy plan (psychotherapy or other types) that you feel will best suit your needs. Most importantly, I provide that safe environment for you to be able to be vulnerable, talk about, and process whatever is on your heart and in your mind.

Psychotherapy is not anything to be scared of, or intimidated about. Seeking out a therapist or being in therapy isn't an admission of weakness or some kind of character flaw. Therapy is a collaborative process and a partnership with someone who is trained in and experienced with facilitating personal growth. And in this process, you are in the driver's seat. Our minds and emotions and relationships involve complicated machinery just like our bodies do and in the same way a medical doctor helps you stay physically healthy, Psychotherapy is designed to help you be and stay mentally and socially strong, and continually in a position to take on life's many challenges as your best self.

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.

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.

Often in our lives we can benefit from having a safe compassionate listener outside of our family or friends circle. A neutral party that can be both direct and empathetic can help you examine troubling emotions and life issues that are contributing to a less than satisfying life. You will feel heard and understood as we explore and move through obstacles that may be interfering with your stability. I will help you access your personal strengths and resources to develop strategies to change what is not working and learn new ways to be healthier / happier in your world. Life will never be perfect however our ability to manage life can make a world of difference in our well being.

In my practice I work with children, teens and their families to help them overcome what sometimes is debilitating emotional distress. Whether it's issues around ADHD, Adoption, Anxiety, Autism Spectrum Disorders, or Depression, I work with a number of modalities like art, play and sand play therapy to help the children communicate and learn about the emotions behind their behavior. In a place and time that is only for them, they learn to trust as they learn tools that will eventually help them lead happy and capable lives. I also work with children in groups and with individual adults.

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.

You don't need to do it all alone. And turns out, as more and more brain research is showing us, you're not meant to. Many of our original wounds, with echoes in our current lives, come from past and often early relationships. And while there are many valuable paths to healing, psychotherapy provides a special safe relationship in which these past experiences can be rewired and new aspects of yourself can be discovered or rediscovered. With compassionate reflection, encouragement, and challenge, transformation can happen!

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Psychotherapist specializing in therapy for couples, individual adults and adolescents. I practice Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) which encourages clients to challenge the thoughts, beliefs and assumptions they hold about the world around them. CBT teaches clients that they can be more active in choosing how they will respond to life. Clients are encouraged to look at their current behaviors and change the ones that are not benefitting them. Clients become more empowered and take control of their lives. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy can help put you back in the drivers seat and provide you with the tools you need to accomplish your goals.

With compassion, I provide a safe and peaceful place to heal. I help my clients recognize their true potential while helping them overcome their emotional difficulties. I use Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, which has a strong basis in science, to overcome depression, anxiety, and a wide range of challenges. Recognizing that past trauma can often create roadblocks to achieving one's greatest potential, I chose to get trained n Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). This method has allowed me to help expedite the healing process from past traumas and deep emotional wounds that once caused them to feel stuck and helpless.

I see psychotherapy as a process of reflecting on the difficulties in your life in the context of a gradually developing relationship of safety and trust with an understanding therapist. In this relationship you can begin to open up issues and feelings that may have felt too difficult to explore on your own. An experienced therapist will help you to gain new insights on your life, perhaps pointing to areas where growth can occur. Issues that are painful can be addressed as you are ready and can often be resolved by exploring all the complex factors involved. Good psychotherapy will give you a deeper understanding and appreciation of yourself, and the freedom to make new choices.

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.

Are you noticing the same patterns or cycles with yourself or with relationships that leave you feeling sad, angry, worried, depressed, or hurt?

My approach to psychotherapy reflects my training and experience in several modalities over 30 years. I will likely mix the psychodynamic approach with systems-based family theory and, if warranted, a cognitive behavioral approach. Most importantly, I work hard to create a trusting, safe environment in which we can work. The core of my work is helping you understand how you are organizing around a problem in ways that are not allowing you to move on in life. Then I can help you change and heal.

In 94041 - Nearby to San Leandro.

You have an innate potential for insight, growth and awareness. You were born with an impulse for wholeness. You possess a truly remarkable ability to heal from past wounds, and to use those healed wounds and rewritten life stories to break the chains of toxic thoughts, habits and behaviors that prevent you from living the life you desire. Effective psychotherapy is not about simply talking, circling through past memories or pondering the Why of your life. I believe in a collaborative, holistic style of work that accesses your own knowing, builds your self trust, awakens your inner fire and gives you powerful tools to chose and manifest a life of contentment, ease and meaning,
