Therapy for Adults

Adult Counseling in San Rafael, CA

The heart of our work is to help you know and trust your deepest feelings, bring new and healthy thinking towards past traumas, and learn skills to help you manage daily living that result in an emotionally authentic life.  When you become more intimate and present with yourself, you become more intimate and authentic with others.  Individual therapy can be an opportunity to learn and grow, to reconnect with your deeper, truer self, and to make mindful changes to improve your life.

How Individual Therapy Works

We begin our therapeutic work by listening and understanding your story and the experiences that may have contributed to or created the current situation. Together, we will define the agreed goals of therapy, explore behaviors and thinking/emotional patterns that are destructive, and create a strategy to find the best techniques to help you transform.  Depending on your needs, counseling can be short or long term.  We will listen to you free of judgement and compassionately challenge you when needed.  Therapy will be a safe and supportive place where you can laugh, cry, and grow into your better self.
