Those who might benefit from my work include: an adult survivor of childhood sexual abuse, the spouse of someone who asked for a divorce; the parents of an angry, anxious, or depressed child or adolescent; or, someone who feels unhappy, or unfilled.
Psychotherapy provides an opportunity to sort through your mind in the presence of someone trained to help make "order out of chaos." I am a clinical psychologist licensed to practice in the state of California with more than 10 years experience treating adults. Areas of difficulty for which I provide help include: relationships, parenting, spirituality, aging, divorce, depression, anxiety, and trauma.

Throughout the past several years I have helped a wide range of clients including adolescents, adults, couples , and families.
My practice emphasizes on helping clients resolve immediate situations, while healing from difficult life experiences and developing strong personal and intimate relationships. I believe successful relationships are the key to having a healthy and rewarding life. The process of psychotherapy can strengthen one's sense of confidence, self-acceptance, and responsibility in daily life. It can also lead to a greater capacity for intimacy, to a more productive use of innate skills, and to experiencing more meaning and pleasure in life.

I have over 10 years of experience working with adults, couples , and families in various capacities.
Our life experiences can lead us to question our identity and purpose in the world we live in. This can lead us to anxiety, depression, and trauma. Do you want to improve how you face challenges, function in your relationships, and face overwhelming feelings? I place heavy importance on addressing trauma. Trauma disintegrates the parts that make up your whole self, which can leave aspects of who you are hidden from your awareness. Left unaddressed, anxiety and depression can worsen, which can rob you of the necessary connection that all human beings need to thrive. I aim to help you process unresolved trauma.

In my work with couples , I have trained extensively in Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples written about in the bestselling books of Dr.
Can heartbreak be cured? If so, how long will it take? Must it hurt so much? Is therapy going to help? Sadly, a broken heart cannot be cured; as with the loss of any beloved, grieving is unavoidable. But yes, a therapist helps by journeying alongside you, listening, offering comfort and wisdom gained from years of helping others regain their footing and with time, trust in love again. Why not you?

I also specialize in couples therapy.
Mental health challenges are due to the aftereffects of traumatic experiences. Trauma can place a strain on your family, work, relationships, and even cause issues with self-worth. I specialize in trauma therapy along with treating personality disorders, depression, mood disorders, anxiety, and addiction. All these disorders can look different from person to person, and that is where our therapeutic journey of empowerment and self-exploration begins. I concentrate on creating a safe space of growth and self-discovery through unconditional positive regard, emotional regulation, and guided activities.

My therapeutic approach mainly focuses on helping my clients identify their strengths to help alleviate anxiety, depression, and trauma. I am a firm believer that our childhood experiences contribute to our beliefs, behavioral patterns, and selecting a romantic partner . Therapy is a process! To allow ourselves to be intimate and vulnerable with someone about our experiences and trauma can be daunting. As a therapist, it is my goal to help validate, create a safe environment and help understand aspects of lived experiences.

I also help my couples and families to discover their internal parts and help conflicting parts to de-escalate, and utilize new skills to meet one another where they are.
Life can feel impossible to avoid struggling and we often don't feel we have the skills to cope successfully through. Unfortunately, sometimes we don't have all the resources we need for a given situation. Parts of us take on desperate roles trying to help us to survive. This might look like anxiety, depression, PTSD, addiction, and relationship/family issues. I aim to help you process unresolved issues and feelings and find solutions.

At Hyland and Associates, our therapists specialize in couples counseling using a highly effective method for healing relationships- Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT).
Are you and your partner stuck in patterns and cycles of conflict that leave you both feeling misunderstood, unheard, disconnected, sad and/or lonely? Do you find yourselves gridlocked over a particular issue that you just cannot seem to get past? Or, perhaps you are the best of friends, but have just lost the spark you once had. We teach couples to recognize the dance that occurs between them, to uncover and understand the deeper meaning beneath the disconnect, anger, frustration, and pain. Once we are able to identify the patterns, cycles and the emotions that drive them, we can then work to improve connection.
