There are many forces mitigating against your marriage or relationship We all have vulnerabilities, sensitivities or wounds that are inevitably triggered in intimate long-term relationships. For example, for one person, it may be feeling criticized; for another, it may be not feeling adequately cared for, etc. Those sensibilities emerge and develop from woundings in family relationships with parents, siblings and important others. When triggered, vulnerabilities can at times manifest like allergies; even a small dose can trigger a reaction, a defensive or protective response.

I have provided services addressing transitional issues, problems related to Child Protective Services or the law, grief, trauma, parenting, anger management, domestic violence, men or female issues, relationship issues, and substance use.
Are you tired of your wounded child not feeling heard or taking over your body to leave you unsatisfied in your relationships or environment? I can help you heal those traumas that linger from your childhood. I will help you create insight into why you become triggered by certain people and react in certain ways. You will learn to self-soothe and release what no longer serves you. We will discuss how to set appropriate boundaries with people and gain insight into your own behavior that may be getting in the way. I invite you to call me to free yourself from the pain that is plaguing your life.

I focus on children, young adults, and adults experiencing depression, anxiety, PTSD and the effects of trauma, ADHD, Bipolar Disorder, grief/loss, relationship issues, foster care, abuse, anger management, family conflicts, self-esteem, as well as personal growth, adjustment issues, and life transitions. I draw from Cognitive-Behavioral, Client-Centered, Dialectical-Behavioral, Solution-Focused, and Psychodynamic Therapy modalities.

I work with adults, couples and business professionals in California who struggle with a variety of human challenges, such as anxiety, depression, existential and life transitions, and personal and professional development.
Renowned psychologist Carl Rogers once stated that the process of a ‘good life’ involves stretching, growing, and becoming more and more of one's potentialities. He argued that the individual who chooses growth as their compass in life, is truly an inwardly free individual (Rogers, 1961). Inspired by Rogers’ humanistic and timeless outlook, I focus my work with clients on expanding their process of growth into an engaging endeavor rather than a strenuous one.

Taking the first step towards emotional healing can be difficult as life is full of ups and downs and sometimes we need a little help along the way. Have you been feeling anxious, depressed, hopeless, or stuck? Are you experiencing relationship issues or not sure of which direction to go in your relationship ? Are you feeling disconnected from your friends/ family or yourself? Do you need help trying to understand your thoughts and feelings? Coming to therapy can be difficult and scary, but taking the first step is the most important and you will not be alone.

Are you in a relationship ? The answer is "yes, of course".
My mission is to walk alongside individuals and families as they strive toward connection. I believe that connection comes from finding hope, from authentic communication, and from learning to trust one's self. Humans are wired for connection. Connection leads to lower anxiety and depression, higher trust and empathy, and consequently, higher intimacy. Lack of connection is the source of pain that can cause addiction, infidelity, depression, anxiety, and a host of mental disorders. Connection has even been proven to improve physical symptoms. I can't wait to explore with you and to see what connection can do for your life!

The 1st step to healing is building a therapeutic relationship where one feels accepted & can feel safe being honest.
Asking for help and opening up can be a difficult process but allowing yourself to share troubling and stressful experiences can help you to regain control over your life. Learning to improve safe coping skills can help one to release stress and anxiety and better deal with life circumstances in a more positive way. Releasing hurt and pain is a healing process and promotes growth which can improve relationships and overall life satisfaction.

As a mom, spouse , friend, and professional woman you are wearing many hats, and this can become overwhelming. At times you feel overwhelmed by life and after a long day of showing up for everyone else, there is nothing left for you. Everything appears okay from the outside looking in, but you can feel yourself cracking more and more each day. You may have fooled everyone around you, but you know the truth. You feel broken and wounded by past mistakes and trauma. You find yourself isolating from friends and family and turning down invites. That feeling of loneliness and sadness has just become too difficult to stuff down anymore.

Couples Counseling Therapists

Does couples counseling work?

Research shows that couples counseling is effective; it can reduce relationship distress and improve emotional awareness, communication, empathy, intimacy, and overall relationship satisfaction. For example, emotionally focused therapy was found to be effective for about 75 percent of couples, and those benefits lasted at least two years.

When should a couple seek counseling?

Couples can benefit from counseling if they consistently struggle in their relationship. They may have lost the ability to communicate effectively, become entrenched in harmful patterns, begun to fight more than usual, broken the other’s trust, suffered from a mental or physical illness, or faced any number of other challenges. Many therapists offer free consultations, so if a couple isn’t sure whether therapy is necessary, asking directly can provide clarity.

How can I get my partner to go to couples therapy?

The decision to seek couples therapy is often driven by one partner, who then convinces the other to participate. When discussing the idea, the initiator should be direct and assertive. They can state the problems they see and explain how the relationship would benefit from therapy. In more serious cases, they can also explain how their relationship may suffer without making any changes or seeking professional help.

How does a couple prepare for couples counseling?

The anticipation of beginning couples counseling can be difficult—sometimes more difficult than the first session itself. Taking a few moments to reflect can allay those concerns: What are the current challenges? When and how did they begin? What do they want the relationship to look like in the future? Reflecting on these questions can help individuals or couples articulate their goals. Of course, the therapist will also ask questions and guide couples through the process.
