7765 Healdsburg Ave Suite 12
I have been in the mental health field for 23 years (between working in Massachusetts and California). I received my Marriage and Family Therapist license in 2007.
Often, anxiety is related to a trauma (or several traumas) that a person has experienced. Through the powerful tool of Somatic Experiencing, I help clients to resolve trauma and, therefore, to alleviate their anxiety. Somatic Experiencing is a method (developed by Peter Levine) which works directly with body sensations for the purpose of moving trauma and anxiety out of the body and encouraging people to feel safe, grounded, calm, and empowered. It is fast and efficient. I am also a Certified Hypnotherapist, and I provide hypnotherapy which is another means of treating anxiety. I teach relaxation. I treat people with PTSD, General Anxiety, Panic Disorder, as well as Victims of Crime and Victims of Abuse. My work is very rewarding to me.
I have a private practice in Sebastopol, and I have openings on Wednesdays and Thursdays. I take PPO insurance. I am also a Beacon Health Provider and accept Medi-Cal. My rates are sliding scale from $125/hr to $100/hr.
