I have years of experience working with individuals (adults, children and adolescents), couples and families confronted with a variety of issues, such as depression, anxiety, suicidality, trauma, grief and loss, stress management, relationship difficulties, divorce, and life transitions.
Sometimes the challenges we face in life can feel overwhelming and impossible to overcome and it is my belief that through authentic human connection, compassion and unconditional positive regard one can open up new doors of self-discovery that will allow them to find meaning, purpose and healing. It is my goal to help shine light on areas of your inner experience that will foster your ability to expand your self-awareness and make life changes. No two individuals are the same, thus I strongly believe in working with you to understand what your unique experience is like and adjust my approach to meet you where you are at.

It often takes a lot of courage to reach out for assistance with personal and relationship issues .
I have enjoyed working with individual adults and couples as a licensed therapist for over 36 years. I work with individuals to heal wounds and trauma from the past. Further I assist those who suffer from depression and/or anxiety or who need help getting through a loss. I also help individuals navigate challenging life transition times. I assist couples in changing hurtful patterns, healing unresolved conflicts, improving communication, and getting beyond infidelity trauma and other betrayals. I encourage self empowerment and accountability to strengthen self esteem.

Being in a first responder or military home is a challenge most cannot fathom. The way the job impacts you, your relationships, your life. This is not just a job for you, it is a lifestyle. From shiftwork to last minute schedule changes, to feeling alone and like no one will get what you are going through. Maybe it is a lack of balance in your life now. Maybe it is your relationship taking a hit. You have to be tough, and you are tough. But being tough shouldn't be this hard, this helpless or hopeless. Being tough shouldn't change you into a person you don't want to be. There is hope. You can find meaning and joy again!

Relationships are hard. Maybe you feel ignored and unseen, so you get angry, say things you regret, storm out of the room or give the cold shoulder. Or maybe it was an affair or an addiction. Stuck in the same fights, feeling defeated, alone, and disappointed, you wonder, “how did we get here?” You want to stay with your partner, but you are not sure how — the way things are going. The good news is that you do not need to walk this road alone. You do not need to sit in your relationship believing there is no hope. The truth is no one steps into a relationship or marriage with all the tools one needs to thrive!

I utilize my professional and personal experience, humor, and warmth to create a strong collaborative relationship with my clients to cultivate the connections and life they desire.
We all develop a set of skills to cope and survive when we are young. This is the beauty of our adaptiveness and our innate pursuit of love, safety, and connectedness. However, for most of us, there reaches a point in life where the skills that once allowed us to survive are now preventing us from living the life we imagined. If you are feeling disconnected and discontented with yourself, your life, and/or your relationships, do not lose hope. It is possible to identify and adapt the patterns that you developed to keep yourself safe and attached.

Relationship is a keystone to successful living.
I seek to offer a welcoming and safe space for you to explore your sense of self and the challenges you may be facing. Due to symptoms that hinder our ability to solve problems and thrive, we can become blocked from experiencing the full range of human emotion. Our sessions will increase your capacity to feel joy, playfulness and a sense of purpose in your life. My therapeutic style is collaborative, transparent and playful while using an integrative mind-body approach. I will encourage you to tap into the creativity and openness that allows you to gain new perspective and discover your own capacity to make meaningful change.

I am inspired by clients who decide they want to grow, change, or improve their quality of life. I bring the same drive toward health and the pursuit of happiness. I feel clients have often suffered more than enough, but often don't know how their life or circumstances could feel different. Relationship , through therapy, shows the way.

Is your relationship becoming more a source of pain than comfort and joy? If you're spending a lot of time worrying about how you're getting along with your partner, consider couples counseling. I help couples address their differences in a constructive, practical manner. Couples counseling can help you to reconnect by improving your communication, intimacy, and compassion for each other. I utilize Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples which is the only couples counseling modality that has research demonstrating its high efficacy rate that lasts long-term.

I believe that the relationship between me and my "special friend" facilitates growth and healing. I offer a COMPLIMENTARY FIRST SESSION to see if we can take a meaningful journey together. My goal in therapy is to help individuals develop a more positive self-image, increase self-esteem, and reach their full potential. I help the people I work with to identify their needs and increase their ability to communicate their needs and feelings to others - thereby developing more loving relationships. This will lead to a more satisfying and fulfilling life.

I see individuals with relationship issues , depression, cross-cultural challenges, spiritual abuse, cancer, Lyme and chronic illness.
Are you wanting to have greater awareness, clarity, and authenticity? Do you desire positive changes in your life that fit with your deepest held values and joy? I can help you identify thoughts and emotions that might have led you to your current symptoms (anxiety, depression, etc). I believe you have the potential to manage many of these symptoms by developing insight, mindfulness skills, and self-compassion.These insights, along with new skills/techniques learned during therapy can help you make more supportive choices in your life. You can have a deeper acceptance of what is and be more of your authentic self.

We all face challenges in life, some greater than others. Many of us struggle with anxiety, depression, loss, relationship problems, and various types of trauma. Healing the past does not mean that we get to erase our experiences, but it does mean that our past no longer gets to control our present. I consider it a privilege to help facilitate a client's journey from dysfunctional beliefs and behaviors, to healthy ways of being in the world. I believe it is important that mind, body, and spirit are all functioning as healthily as possible in order to live ones best life.

from UCLA, I have worked in different settings with a diverse group of clients and concerns, including depression, loss and grief, anxiety, relationship issues , sexual identity/orientation, and difficult life transitions.
I work with individuals in both brief and longer-term psychotherapy. I practice integrative therapy that is strongly grounded in psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral and solution-focused approaches. I strive to help clients increase awareness of thoughts and feelings, gain a better understanding of how their past contributes to their development, and gain skills in coping with stress and changing behaviors. I view psychotherapy as a collaborative process in which the client and therapist work together to develop goals and treatment plans.

My approach is to create an accepting, supportive, non-judgmental partnership in order to help my clients discover their strengths, inner resources, and to achieve a deeper understanding of who they are. This work will help you to overcome or more effectively deal with such problems as anxiety, depression, anger, stress, relationship difficulties, life transitions, and attention deficit disorder. We work together to identify self-defeating thought patterns or unconscious defenses that might be getting in the way of your natural capacity for satisfying relationships, or the full and authentic expression of who you are.

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 Pacific Grove relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Pacific Grove.
