Often individuals or couples will feel depressed or anxious and they are not able to pinpoint what is making them feel that way. Things might be status quo or there may be a turn in a relationship but feelings don't feel the same. This is when you want to figure out what is going on the inside and work on the unresolved issues.

The relationship that you will form with your therapist is what paves the way to growth.
Beginning therapy can be a scary and intimidating process, one that comes with many questions: Who should I work with? How does therapy work? What can I expect to get from therapy? Will it be useful for me? Therapy is an investment in yourself. It can deepen your self-awareness and lead to long-term change in your life.

I believe that if we turn within, we can find the resources to deal with any problem and we can create a life of satisfaction, love and joy. My ideal client wants a safe, caring relationship in which to open up, share and be authentic. The journey to being oneself is very exciting and for me, therapy is about accepting oneself, expressing oneself and being honest. Doing this inner work with a guide naturally opens doors to connection and resolution of relationship and family problems and creates enthusiasm and a sense of satisfaction and purpose in one's life.

I specialize in couple counseling, relationship dynamics, self-esteem, communication issues, and other issues like trauma, anxiety and ADHD. I work with adults and older teens who feel ready to do deep work. The problem is that most people wait, hoping things will shift on their own...but that rarely works. What I do know is that therapy harnesses the healing power of connection. Together, we can create a shift that leads to a better sense of self, inner peace, and confidence in your relationships, and connection. I LOVE this work and my intention is to hold a space where you can be human with no judgment or shame.

I have years of experience working with clients on issues ranging from anxiety, depression, relationship issues , and sexual issues.
Rethink, Reframe, Realign, Recover. Do you feel as if your life is a sandcastle with the water always threatening to wash it out to sea? I work with clients to explore how unresolved issues from the past impact the present. In an open and safe environment, we explore authentic feelings and lost aspects of self often censored in general society, toward greater personal insight, growth, and change. An accepting and validating therapy relationship can be a key element in the healing of old wounds.

I am a relationship expert who can truly help people improve their ways of connecting and communicating with the important people in their lives.

You maybe having a hard time with dating, going through a relationship breakup, getting married or just entering parenthood and feel confused about your feelings and roles and possibly overwhelmed with responsibilities. You may not be communicating well with your spouse. You may not know how to feel or what to do. I can help!

Research indicates that the most reliable predictor of success in therapy is a positive therapist-client relationship .
The heart of my practice centers around helping you increase self-acceptance, access inner strength, enhance emotion regulation skills, alter unhelpful behavior patterns, clarify what matters most in your life and act toward that end. Even if the events in your life don't change, your perspective on them and reaction to them can. Common areas of focus include relationship issues , depression, anxiety, career/life transitions, child/adolescent issues, divorce, parenting, assertiveness training/setting boundaries, intimacy/changing unhealthy relationship patterns.

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 Manhattan Beach relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Manhattan Beach.
