Individual counseling: Individual counseling involves meeting one on one to help identify your personal stress and trauma history and assess the nature of the problem,  work through painful feelings, gain new perspectives, identify and implement helpful changes and set attainable goals. I generally meet clients for 45 minutes on a weekly or biweekly basis, depending on  your needs.
Support groups: Asmall support group of 6 to 8 members meets weekly in order to focus on a theme or issue that is common to everyone attending. Groups usually run for 90 minutes.
Fully-A-Live:  Dance/Movement groups for trauma survivors and others on the path to recovery.1.5 hour weekly
groups, currently on Thursdays 1.00pm to 2.30pm at Danspace, Hudson St, Rockridge, Oakland. Gentle movement and dance to help people restore a sense of personal power and a return to safety after an intense period of trauma, stress or shock and overwhelm.
A San Francisco movement group for trauma survivors is forming in the fall. The group will be held on Monday evenings . If you want to join the group there is an initial assessment interview in my office prior to joining. Please call me to book an appointment. 510-377-1082

A movement based resource, using my experience and training in the 5 Rhythms dance practice, Somatic Experiencing and Resource Oriented skills training to provide a space in which therapists and counselors can explore how a somatic focus can both support their own well being as well as help them help others.
