QUESTIONS

What should I expect from therapy?
People seek therapy to feel better, and one thing I know is that if we are not alone in the dark and tough times, we suffer less. The safe and confidential environment of therapy allows you to explore the difficult and challenging areas of your life, express emotions that perhaps have been stuck in you for many years, and create possibilities of happiness in your life that you previously before never thought possible. Therapy is a personal and unique experience for everyone, and we tailor it to suit your needs.
What is your theoretical approach?
I bring over 30 years of teaching meditation, dance, and improvisational theater to my work as a therapist. I am steeped in somatic counseling, attachment theory, mindfulness, and the neurobiology of relationships.
I have extensive training in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), an experiential and in-depth process rooted in somatic, affective, and cognitive awareness. Through the undoing of aloneness, positive transformation happens.
I also specialize in relationship counseling, and have extensive training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for Couples, and AEDP for couples. EFT is an evidence-based approach that restores connection, fosters secure and loving emotional bonds, and creates meaningful lasting relationships.
Is counseling confidential?
Yes! As a licensed professional, I am legally and ethically bound to adhere to strict California confidentiality laws. The fact I know you, that you are in therapy, and ALL information you share with me remains completely confidential. Therapy provides a safe container for you to explore thoughts and express feelings about all sorts of things without worry that someone else might find out. There are a few exceptions to these laws you need to know: If you intend to cause serious harm to yourself or someone else, I am mandated by law to inform the proper authorities to prevent that from happening. If there is suspected child abuse or elder abuse, I am mandated by law to notify proper authorities to prevent that from occurring. The only other reason I would need to break confidentiality is if I am court ordered to do so, which usually occurs if you are in a lawsuit and present your mental health as a factor in the lawsuit.
What will this cost me?
My fee is $225 for 50 minute session.

Sometimes I am able to offer a lower sliding fee scale according to financial needs. So, let me know if that is your concern and we will go from there. If I am unable to meet your needs, I have a network of referrals and other lower fee options that I can offer you.

I do not currently take insurance but am able to provide a super bill you can submit to your insurance company to see if they will reimburse you.

I ask for a 48-hour notice to cancel or reschedule. If you notify with less than 48-hours you will be responsible to pay the full rate for the session.

Where are you located?
I am located in Marin County.
100 Tamal Plaza, Suite 270
Corte Madera, CA. 94925
Do you offer online therapy?
Yes. Telehealth can be a convenient option to receive counseling services when you are unable to attend in-person sessions. It can be suitable for individuals as well as couples. We will discuss your needs and see if the online environment is right for you.
