A Marin County Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Something happened in your life that threw you off course. Something that leaves you feeling ashamed or discouraged, as if you haven’t done a good enough job, or that things will never get better.
Maybe your teen is struggling, and they’re not responding to the ways in which you’re trying to help.
Your family is suffering and you’re not sure where to go from here.
Most people don’t understand what you are going through and you’re worried that others will judge you.
You catch yourself thinking:
“Did I cause this?”
“Is my child going to be ok?”
“What could I have done differently?”
“What’s wrong with me?”
Parenting a child can be one of the most rewarding experiences a person can have. It can also be one of the most overwhelming and lonely experiences, especially when you feel you don’t have the support that you need. You might feel helpless about supporting your teen or hopeless about their future. It is hard to see them struggling, suffering, acting out. Being a parent can feel demoralizing, stressful and frustrating.
Support for teens and young adults with depression, anxiety in Marin County, CA
I can help you see what is normal teen behavior and what is more concerning so you can better understand and help your adolescent through these challenging years.
You are here because you are ready to understand yourself, your family, and gain perspective.
You are not alone. We can work together in a safe, non-judgmental space as we explore areas where you feel stuck. I will help you find the words to describe what is happening and together we’ll find what works for you moving forward.
I believe you’re doing the best you can with what you are facing and that with new knowledge and a different approach you can start feeling better.
I became a therapist because I want to help individuals find their voice and help them to feel understood. Where we come from in our own families often informs how we are in our current relationships, as parents, partners, colleagues, and friends.
I work with clients’ strengths while also helping them to remove the barriers that are getting in the way to living a fuller and happier life.
I empower individuals I work with by assisting them to make changes and gain insight to increase self awareness and confidence. Learn more.
