Individual therapy for trauma in our San Francisco counseling practices

    Often a client comes to us initially for one reason, and sexual abuse or trauma
    comes up later. We work at each person's pace. With the development of
    Brainspotting developed by David Grand and Lisa Schwarz, we are able to access
    the parts of the brain that hold good and bad memories from the past.  With the
    help of the therapist, you are able to create resources to help you deal with
    traumatic experiences from the past.  We all hold trauma because being born is

    Things men and woman have hidden all of their life frequently are expressed in
    our sessions.

    We work with dreams and nightmares, showing how disturbances are held in the
    body and providing a means for releasing them.

    We believe that all people are part of a larger group, be it family, spiritual, friends,
    or work. I like to know where a client is coming from to determine how best to be
    of help.

    Often members of an extended family or group are invited to therapy sessions to
    work on a client's specific issues. I have even lived with a group or family to help
    resolve difficult problems.

Sexual abuse and trauma therapy in our San Francisco mental health practice
    A woman came to me who had been sexually abused by a family member. As a
    result of her trauma, she was extremely overprotective of her own children.  Using
    a combination of techniques, I helped her see ways of having healthy relationships
    with her children and husband.  In this case, I worked only with the woman, but
    many times I will work with the entire family.

    Helping individuals through their personal network and investigating a client's
    "personal pathology" reveals that no one lives in a vacuum and that others suffer
    similar feelings.

    I specialize in "inner child" work, and will role-play to help a client work on issues.
    Switching roles often reveals a resolution to the problem.

    Role playing is an effective way of relieving anxiety about stressful situations.

Help with famly-of-origin stress problems in my San Francisco psychotherapy
    One of my clients and I worked on family-of-origin issues.  His mother was very
    controlling and would not allow him to express himself freely. He was an educator
    and wanted to help others through educational programs.  When he first came to
    see me, he was afraid to express his dreams and withdrew to protect himself from
    being hurt. I helped him express his desire to help others through education. He
    now expresses his passion through his unique educational programs.

Fear and phobia therapy in my San Francisco counseling practice
    A man came to see me to overcome his fear of flying. Using experiential and
    cognitive behavior therapy, I led him through an imaginary flight.  From getting
    ready for a trip and packing, to driving to the airport and checking in, to sitting in
    the boarding area waiting, we thoroughly covered every detail.  The next step was
    to actually go to the airport and sit with him, allowing him to experience his
    anxiety. He eventually prepared himself to take a trip and successfully overcome
    his anxiety about flying.
