Welcome! I provide Trauma Focused Care with a strong emphasis on relationships within and outside of the family system.
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in San Rafael, CA
Separation is challenging, no doubt. Have you been struggling with grief, shame, self doubt, anger or emotional pain on your own? There is help! I will teach you how to communicate effectively to reduce the stress and you will have the opportunity to learn techniques to help you feel grounded. Self exploration is key to establish success. My Emotion Focused Approach is gentle and effective as it helps unveil who you are and helps you connect with your inner strength.
During trauma, the human brain braces itself for survival. Afterwards, people tend to isolate and / or numb the painful emotions. Commonly emerging negative feelings are: shame, guilt, low self worth, excessive need for control, feelings of emptiness, depression and anxiety. In therapy, we will focus on how to diminish the power of the past and channel your energy to reconnect with your authentic self. You don't have to carry this burden with you forever: you have the power to get "unstuck"!
We will look at ways you view yourself in your family system, explore your goals and address pressing issues so you can move forward and start creating a happier you. Relational conflicts can be damaging and deeply rooted, but you have the power to shift the dynamics. Don't wait for others around you to change, you are enough to make a difference!
