Thank you for taking the time to be here. I am currently on sabbatical through October, but am happy to refer you to Dr. Damon Wood. Damon is a licensed Clinical Psychologist, who has very similar training to me, (Internal Family Systems, CBT, Humanistic, and Sensorimotor psychotherapy) but Damon is also trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Transpersonal Psychology, and Meditative practices among others. His experience working with adults spans various areas, including Trauma, Depression, Anxiety, Dual diagnosis, Self-Inquiry, and Emotional regulation. He works with adult clients only, and is not currently working with couples. He is taking new clients. You can reach him for a free consultation at: 1 (831) 200-4229 and you can learn more about him from his Psychology today profile here: https://www.psychologytoday.co....
If you would like me to contact you when I return to my practice, please message me through this website, but know that I will not be responding to any contacts (unless from recent clients) until I return. Thank you.
Beginning a search for a therapist can be a time consuming and daunting task. And yet, opening to the idea that someone might be able to help you is a genuine act of courage. Please let me know if there are any questions I can answer for you along the way...
In both my personal and professional experience, Therapy is about finding your way back home to your self. It is about shedding the unhelpful beliefs, perspectives, myths and judgements we adopt over the course of our lives to protect ourselves, those which no longer serve us. The process of therapy is about getting to know your Self with more curiosity, clarity, and compassion, so that you can live the life you hope for.
To do this work takes a certain amount of vulnerability, and for some of us that is the scary part... "I don't want to lay out all my emotional baggage or talk about some of the things that have happened to me." Well, rest assured that therapy isn't about laying yourself emotionally bare - it's about sharing what you are able to share when you are ready to share it. We all have to feel safe enough inside ourselves to risk being vulnerable... it is an essential part of exploring how we come to be who we are. It isn't about weakness - it is about having the willingness to feel into uncertainty and risk exploration; that is how we change our lives.
And that is what I do: I help you create a safe and comfortable space, where curiosity, exploration, excavation, communication, courage, creativity, connectedness, and compassion work together to change your life for the better.

"The time will come, when,
with elation, you will greet your self
arriving at your own door, in your own
mirror, and each will smile at the
other’s welcome—and say, 'Sit here. Eat'."
"You will love again the stranger who
was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your
heart to itself, to the stranger who has loved
you all your life, whom you have ignored for another."
