Things have been hard for people lately. You are not alone if you have been feeling stretched too thin. Relationships can be challenging; learning communication skills to express yourself authentically to your partner is what I can offer couples. Understanding your own feelings first, learning emotional language to communicate those feelings, and learning how to listen and be heard in your relationship is the basis of what I do when working with couples. For parents, I help you see your child as a whole person from birth, and assist you in becoming a confident leader, developing healthy attachments, and fostering emotional security.

Painful and stressful experiences can leave us feeling hopeless and helpless or so anxious we are unable to sleep restfully or concentrate effectively. Relationship difficulties can leave us lonely and fearful. If you are looking for relief of immediate stress or seeking longer term satisfaction, you may wish to work together with me toward greater hope and peace.

As a specialist in Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples, I offer help to reconnect with your partner, develop a clear understanding of one another's needs, heal relationship wounds such as infidelity, deepen your intimate connection and support you on the path towards a closer, stronger, happier relationship .
The heart of my work with individual adults is to help you explore your inner emotional experience, identify negative, self-defeating beliefs and learn skills that will help you to respond, rather than react, to life situations. Our work together provides the space and guidance to develop greater self-awareness and compassion for yourself, while working through difficult issues of past and present. This approach can be helpful for anxiety and depression as well as experiencing deeper meaning in life.

My early training and work with young children and their parents prepared me for my current work treating adults and couples; many of the struggles these families had centered around bonding and attachment. Today, most of my adult patients face relationship issues rooted in early life experiences. During psychotherapy treatments, I help my patients understand the value of working through early emotional losses so they can mature and enjoy healthy adult relationships.

For the 22 last years I have worked successfully with adult clients dealing with a wide range of issues including marital and relationship problems, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, abuse issues, personality issues and mental health concerns. I believe a trusting relationship between the therapist and client is the foundation for all growth and change. However, the relationship itself is typically not sufficient. I will help you set goals for your therapy based upon what you would like to have different in your life, and together we will explore and change the blocks which have prevented you from achieving your goals.

I enjoy working with teens, adult individuals and couples to help navigate through a variety of issues, ranging from grief, depression, anxiety, relationship struggles, and self-esteem.
Life can be so unfair and being human is incredibly difficult, yet there is also so much beauty in life to experience as well! It can be exhausting to feel like you have to put on a front and be filtered in order to do life while suffering. Learning to find a way to hold and make sense of these contradictions can be a painful, confusing and complicated process! We often view things as being “either/or” when much of life is actually "both/and." My desire is to create a safe place for you to JUST BE…unfiltered…to help process, and receive rest for your soul and mind in order to heal and live life as your best authentic self.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for an Arroyo Grande relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Arroyo Grande.
