Holistic Psychotherapy

Holistic Psychotherapy is a term for a holistic, comprehensive approach to psychotherapy.

If the basic human needs of protection, connection and being seen are thwarted, you can experience:
  • Depression
  • Isolation
  • Anxiety
  • Rage
  • Desperation
  • Physical illness
My relational approach helps repair the damage caused by lack of nurturing relationship—neglect, trauma, situational.

My somatic approach helps get you in your body, in present time, where you can actually experience your life.

I incorporate the Energy Psychology techniques of EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and TAT (Tapas Acupressure Techniques) to facilitate deep and long-lasting changes in a short amount of time.

On a personal and planetary level, things are accelerated. We no longer have the luxury of spending years in therapy processing what did or did not happen in our childhoods.

I hope to empower clients to find their own “inner healer.” I provide exercises to help restore your vitality. I give homework assignments so that your time in our sessions is maximized.

How I work

Sessions are 50 or 75 minutes. Your first session is 75 minutes. You may come to my office in Oakland, CA, or we may have our session via telephone or Skype.
