August 2021 Update

I am currently providing telehealth sessions using Facetime, Zoom and doxy.me. I will continue this going forward and add in-person sessions as it becomes safe to do so. I am able to provide therapy to anyone in California via telehealth.

Carol Harvey MFT Therapy in Petaluma CA

Welcome. 

I believe therapy should be practical and strength based. Identifying and building on the strengths of the individuals, couples and families I work with is essential to creating sustainable growth and change.

I view therapy as a collaboration between myself and my clients. You and I will work together to find what works for you in your life.

Not just couples and families

I see individuals, couples, families and groups. I have more than 25 years of experience working with a variety of issues including life transitions, relationship struggles, communication problems, depression, anxiety, parenting, divorce and co-parenting. I also provide supervision and clinical consultation to marriage and family therapy interns.

Transitions

As I think about my work, I realize that I’m drawn to working with people in transition. So much of life is about transitions: from childhood to adolescence; leaving home; starting a relationship; becoming a parent; divorce; blending families; job changes; illness; retirement; loss, etc. I write that list as though it all happens in an orderly fashion, but we all know that isn’t true. Sometimes you are ready for it. Sometimes it is a complete surprise or several of these changes happen at the same time. Not everyone experiences all of these transitions. At their best, transitions can be a time of growth and excitement. However they can also be a time of fear, depression and confusion. I can help you turn your transition, whether welcome or not, into an opportunity to live a happy, healthier life.

Fees and insurance

I charge $150/50 minute session for individuals and $160 for couples and families. I am in-network for several insurance companies. However I am not accepting new insurance clients at this time.

To Sleep, Perchance to Get Some Rest

As a therapist, I regularly meet with teens and adults. Most report insomnia to some degree. Insomnia is defined simply as habitual sleeplessness but for years, I resisted applying the term insomnia to my own [...]

Anxiety and Relationships

Anxiety affects everyone to some degree. Quite simply we live in an anxious world. Anxiety can range from occasional, mild unease in anticipation of an event to constant, overwhelming panic. It goes by many names including worry, nerves, freaking out, stressed, tense.
