I provide a number of individual therapy services in downtown Larkspur, Marin County including:
People seek psychotherapy for numerous reasons but the thing they usually have in common is some level of emotional or psychological distress. If you’re looking for a therapist – it’s likely something hasn’t been working for you and you need some help. Maybe you’re struggling with anxiety, depression or anger management issues. Perhaps managing stress has been your problem and you struggle with issues around life balance between work, family, friends and other interests. Perhaps you experienced trauma in your past that still impacts or blocks you in the present.
I strive to help people decrease symptoms (if present), gain insight into what in their life isn’t working for them and collaborate to make lasting changes. I offer practical tools and management techniques to use right away – outside of the therapy office.
My individual therapy work with people is insight and awareness oriented – followed by change. I view each person as a unique tapestry of life events and personal characteristics. Part of my job is to carefully put together the pieces of the puzzle of where you come from as it relates to your current struggles.
In addition to the relevance of genetics, family history, temperament and the like – I believe the past often impacts the present so part of the therapy can involve an exploration of your family of origin.
My work often involves identifying unhelpful core beliefs you might have about yourself, others and the world around you. The good news is that faulty belief systems can be changed – and your shift in perception can greatly impact how you feel. I operate through a lens blending attachment, cognitive behavioral, family of origin and the latest research in neuroscience and emotional health.
The following are some of the basic goals that I will help you strive for in individual therapy:
