It hurts to feel disconnected from your partner, parent, or child. And sometimes the harder you both try to close that distance, the farther apart and more lonely you both end up feeling. Yet you keep using the same ineffective relationship strategies, because you don't know what else to do! Or maybe you just give up. If yours is like most relationships, you're already spending enough time and effort trying to make it work -- you're just spending it in the wrong way. I can help you redirect your efforts using an approach called Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT).

I am trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy, a modality that helps couples restore intimacy and closeness by re-building loving and secure relationships.
Everyone has battles to fight and hurdles to overcome. Whether you struggle with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, marital issues, parenting concerns, or anything else--you should know that there is a better way to manage your life. Supporting mothers throughout the stages of motherhood is something I hold close to my heart. I am also extremely passionate about my work with teen girls, especially those who struggle with academic pressures. I facilitate a high school girls' group each week that focuses on friendships, self-esteem, self-care, and coping skills for high school.

"At the center of your being, you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want." -Lao Tzu. I believe this to be true for all individuals, though depression, anxiety, and other mental health symptoms can obscure this understanding, leaving us lost and confused along the way. I work with individuals and couples who have deviated from or lost sight of their values, and are looking for guidance in defining and living a life of peace and purpose.

EMDR, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), parts-work, psychodynamic therapy, cognitive-narrative therapy, and the Satir growth model are examples of therapeutic modalities that inform, inspire, and influence her work.
Do anxiety, fear, guilt, shame, or anger limit you from relating and living fully? Are you facing adversity, at a crossroads, or worried about yourself or a loved one? Are you feeling disconnected, dissatisfied, and stuck? Do you need individual, couples, or family therapy? If you answered yes to any of these questions, know that you are not alone. With courage, compassion, and curiosity, you can adapt, transform, and overcome the circumstances that prevent you from living your best life.

I enjoyed very much my post licensure work at a family institute. Whether working with a child, an adolescent, an adult, a dyad or the whole family, I will initially focus on the person suffering the most. Based on the presenting symptom, I may do brief crisis intervention to stabilize a situation until an individual's underlying issue has been crystallized. The life issue causing depression, anxiety, and fears will then be addressed in more depth. My approach is to assist people in their own healing, maximizing on their own strengths and resources.

Are you experiencing anxiety, sadness, or a sense of hopelessness? These are normal emotions most of us experience at some point in our lives. What if you find yourself stuck or overwhelmed? First, this is often more normal than we believe it to be, especially when some situations are not within our control. The recent pandemic and social stressors are affecting individuals in many different ways. Therapy will help you gain a new perspective and develop a personalised plan to gain new coping strategies. New clients are offered a free 30-min consultation. In Person Sessions and Telehealth are both available.

Let's face it, life is not always easy, and can often feel more challenging when we go through our struggles alone. As with many new endeavors, taking the first step can be the hardest part, so I commend you on your willingness and courage to seek support. People come to therapy for many reasons, and often it is because they are seeking relief from a life challenge that is hindering their ability to feel more joy, confidence, connectedness, and inner peace.

Some people struggle with preconceived ideas about what therapy is. I ask my clients if they had a tooth ache, would they go to a dentist to relieve their pain? I see difficult life experiences, transitions and "stuff" we struggle with as the same as taking those issues to a therapist. If you are stuck in your life, suffering and experiencing a significant loss, if a relationship is troubling, if your anxiety is getting the best of you, if your depression has got you paralyzed ...then seeking relief is taking care of yourself. For any of these issues, therapy is the place to take it.

One of the most important aspects in therapy is for patients to feel heard, respected, and understood. Given that each individual is unique, and no one issue is ever the same among different people, my approach is integrative and tailored to meet the needs of the person, not the "problem". I strive to create a compassionate, non-judgemental environment for patients to learn, grow, explore, challenge, and to live the life they want to be living. I specialize in working with adults - individual, couples, and family - with anxiety, depression, PTSD/trauma, relationship problems, substance abuse, ADD/ADHD, and LGBTQ issues.

Pain can take a myriad of forms. You might feel crushed under the weight of self-loathing, wishing you could be anyone but yourself. Or perhaps you are stuck in a dark pit of sadness and loneliness, wondering when you will see the light. Maybe you are tired of being ruled by your anxiety or trauma. Or you are tormented by a fear of gaining weight and inhabiting a body you cannot stand.

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. Manhattan Beach 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.
