When we strengthen the relationship with ourselves, the outer world becomes much more balanced and fulfilling.
Have you ever felt like you were busy doing all the things you thought would bring you a happy life, yet felt alone and disconnected from yourself and others? These feelings are often when people turn to alcohol, drugs, food, shopping or relationships to try to create those feelings of happiness, contentment and joy. It can work for a short time however the key to moving forward is to understand the reasons we seek out these distractions.

After 35 years in the San Diego area, I feel particularly well suited to working with clients with a variety of "problems in living." Managing stress, lifestyle balance, coping with relationship issues , and workplace difficulties affect us all, and having professional support and input is now not only acceptable, but crucial. And, research has shown that of all the factors that are key in predicting a positive outcome in any form of therapy, the quality of the relationship with your therapist is the most important. And that is my focus!

With this awareness, we can work together to gain better coping skills, resolve relationship tensions,improve communication, and work towards attaining satisfying life goals.
People seek a psychotherapist because they are experiencing emotional distress, often caused by issues related to relationships, family, marital problems, stress, and general dissatisfaction with one's life or work. My job as a psychologist is to find a path leading to both relief of these symptoms and to an understanding of oneself, which together provide for both short term and long term relief from these states. I do this by providing a non-judgmental and supportive therapeutic environment which promotes a deeper understanding and exploration of oneself, with the belief that this increased self-awareness ultimately leads to positive changes and better coping skills.

After practicing, studying and teaching psychotherapy for 40 years at the UC San Diego Department of Psychiatry I have integrated many different approaches to helping my patients. The most important aspect of psychotherapy is the relationship formed through an empathic understanding of the core issues and what caused them followed by a plan of action. Therapy is a collaborative process of discovery. Change comes about through understanding oneself better, learning new skills and effective ways of communicating with others. Each person's journey is unique.

But with this type of specialization comes a wide range of disorders that cause addiction issues such as depression, anxiety, bipolar, traumatic experiences, personal and cultural shame, relationship difficulties and other life distressing experiences.
My personal devotion to this work comes from my own struggles with addiction and mental health issues. I have always seen the best in people and sometimes their best gets lost in a difficult world, and with each decision it seems to push them further away from who they truly are.

Life is hard. Sometimes, life can seem unbearable, especially when difficult events like trauma, loss, or relationship conflicts happen and lead to depression and anxiety. During difficult times, you may believe that you have no choice but to suffer in secret, especially with the continuing stigma of mental health issues. However, I want you to know that you don't have to suffer on your own. Seeking therapy can be a daunting and scary process, and finding the right therapist for you can be difficult and confusing.

I am trained in several therapeutic modalities including EMDR, CBT, ACT, and Mindfulness, and I enjoy helping those dealing with relationship issues , parenting challenges, eating issues, and addictions.
Have you heard of the saying, "The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I change," by Dr Carl Rogers? In my experience, our suffering stems from a lack of self-acceptance and self-compassion. I have also realized that it is not until we are willing to take that first step of looking at ourselves honestly and kindly, that we start living life fully. If you are feeling stuck dealing with difficult situations or repeating unhealthy habits, I can help.

For many years I worked almost exclusively with individuals, helping them overcome depression, anxiety and other issues and maladies that were ruining their lives. Then, about 25 years ago, after hearing so many horror stories from couples about their previous couples therapy experiences, I decided to specialize in working with couples and completed advanced couples therapy training. I help couples heal and rebuild their relationship , creating the intimate, loving and happy relationship that they have been yearning for but could not previously achieve, the relationship in which both partners feel safe, respected and fully loved.

My focus in our work is to accompany you, both as a guide and a companion, in your search for a deeper sense of yourself, finding your "place in the world", both individually and in relationship . I believe you have the wisdom within for your own growth and healing. In response to the problems in our lives, we all develop survival strategies and coping mechanisms that keep us disconnected from our true self. Because we do this unconsciously, the resulting thoughts and behaviors can sometimes make us wonder if something is wrong with us.

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 a La Jolla relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in La Jolla.
