Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in Ben Lomond, CA

Parenting can be hell and no one wants to talk about it. No worries here, I have heard it all! I bring thirty years of experience as a credentialed teacher, parent education specialist, teen mentor and school counselor.Experienced with learning disabilities and educational guidance, creating healthy boundaries and agreements, blended families and divorce impact. I love working with post-partum new parents those transitioning to the empty nest.
Being a woman today often means juggling work, family and community obligations while quietly suffering a major physical or mental health issue alone. You are expected to function and fire on all cylinders while you might be managing: depression or anxiety related to postpartum, fertility issues/treatments, dysmenorrhea, fibroids, reproductive cancer, peri-menopause, menopause or post menopausal issues, assault ptsd, or sexual dissatisfaction. I offer a mindful, holistic and feminist approach.
Find tangible relief from your symptoms today through practicing evidence based mindfulness and CBT. Harness the power of your autonomic nervous system and learn to work with your body and mind rather than fight against it or flee. I can help you learn to stop a panic attack within a minute, learn how the word "no" is a powerful antidote to overwhelm and how to make your breath your "go to" first aid.
