My practice centers around Emotionally Focused Therapy and Attachment informed therapies to help individuals, couples, and families address the core communication patterns that leave them feeling stuck and disconnected.
Interpersonal relationships are powerful contributors to our overall health. Our intimate partner relationships, family relationships, work or peer relationships tend to affect us in meaningful ways. When our relational lives are strong and connected we feel satisfied, empowered, hopeful, and more confident. When our relational lives are hurting, we feel anxious, sad, pained, frustrated, and left not knowing what to do to improve it. I work with my clients to address the heart of their stressors working toward tangible results with lasting effects. I work collaboratively & passionately to create a safe, responsive, and supportive environment to address your needs.

My therapeutic approach integrates a strength-based philosophy with emotionally focused therapy and mindfulness training.
I help clients mend their broken hearts and calm their overactive minds by joining them in their journey towards deeper self-awareness through kindness and compassion. I whole-heartedly believe in the beauty of each person's unique perspective, and at the same time, gently encourage clients to be mindful of the universal human experiences of love and loss. Thus, providing comfort while helping clients explore issues that are difficult or painful. My creative and empathetic approach can assist clients in breaking a repetitive mindset by allowing them to gain new perspective through fresh insights, support and empowerment.

I help couples connect. I specialize in helping couples feeling disconnected from each other; communicate better, heal from injuries to the relationship or simply start out right in their marriages. I provide a safe structure where couples can share openly, understand why they argue and begin breaking the negative cycle they get stuck in during arguments. Finding a pathway to stay connected as a couple can change your relationship.

I tailor treatment tools specifically for each client based on a variety of research supported therapeutic paradigms, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused/Narrative Therapy and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy.
I believe everyone has a right to happiness. Do you feel anxious, depressed or overwhelmed? Are you uncertain how to fix a relationship dynamic that is toxic or problematic? Are you unhappy with an aspect of your life but feel stuck? When we are off balance it is easy for anxiety, depression and stress to occur. Conflict in relationships can become toxic rather than productive. Parenting strong-willed, intelligent children can become chaotic and troubling. In times like this it is often hard to find tools to effect change in the desired direction. I can help.

I’m a licensed Clinical Psychologist in California and have assisted people over many years with a variety of problems and issues. These have included psychological challenges such as depression and anxiety, as well as behavioral challenges such as adopting and maintaining healthy behaviors and a healthy lifestyle. Although these problems often call for different approaches, they share some important elements. We often end up feeling badly about our own thoughts, feelings, or actions which is understandable as they often do not seem to make sense.

Welcome to my practice. I have about 15 years of clinical experience and have been featured on NBC/KCAL/HLN as an expert psychologist. I work primarily with men who have hit “rock bottom” and would like help getting up. These men are often in crisis when we first meet. The issues I address are typically related to unhealthy sexual behaviors, infidelity, financial recklessness, gambling, drugs/alcohol, dishonesty/lying, and relational conflicts. My therapy approach is a combination of psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioral, and the 12-Step recovery model. I also share insight from my own painful but redemptive recovery journey.

Emotionally Focused Therapists
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. La Jolla Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
