Licensed Marriage & Family TherapistCalifornia Offices in Marin & Berkeley
How do I work?
I listen. I observe. I will tailor your treatment to you. My goal is to teach you how to turn towards all parts of your self. They all have something to say to you. For example, anxiety can be wisdom coming from a part of you that you have been keeping at bay. Those feelings need help in being expressed ultimately so you can be free. And first we must guide you to learn how to listen to your parts.
Methods that work:
- I am a Trauma-Informed therapist. That means I have extensive training in the effects of trauma and neglect, and how to resolve them.
- I use a variety of ‘Parts’ models, including Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Structural Dissociation, EMDR, depending on what you need.
- I am also a student of The Diamond Approach, and this method informs my work with all my clients.
Somatic Therapy and Parts Work
I also incorporate a Somatic approach to treatment. As we go through difficult material, I will guide you to turn towards sensations in your body. You will learn how to be in relationship with parts of yourself which may cause you trouble, or parts you may never have been aware of. As you identify parts that get triggered and uncover related past trauma, you will learn about how these parts serve you as well as how they inhibit your well-being. When you engage with your parts in a compassionate way, you may find you experience a transforming sense of peacefulness and joy. That’s what I’m here for, to guide you to fulfill your potential for peacefulness and joy!
