Everyone deserves to feel like themselves. Sometimes life gets ahead of us and we can feel lost, stuck and/or disconnected. It can be distressing and cause suffering. Maybe it is a major life event or role change, a spiraling negative thought pattern, mounting academic or career pressure, or parenting or relationship challenges. Whatever the reason, it takes courage to seek help and effort to imagine change and improvement. You have taken the first step. Your next steps will be joined by a therapist who will treat you with respect and work diligently to address your presenting problem.

I enjoy working with adults and families who desire change, but aren't sure how to make it happen. For some, it means a change in relationship dynamics or parenting style. For others, it means collaborating on complicated life issues, such as difficult teenagers, substance abuse, or co-parenting. If you are looking to leave a long marriage, I can help you navigate that process. I also enjoy working with individuals in their 20's and 30's trying to figure out this thing called adulting. I split my time between Steamboat Springs,CO and northern California, an am licensed to see clients in both states.

Are you or loved ones facing challenges you want to work through in safety and confidence? Reacting to life events with worry or sadness? Ready for a new beginning? For better or worse, our experience is shaped by expectations and habits that are maintained by loyalty to important relationships, and by cycles of confirming experience. They affect our happiness, our relationships and the success of our endeavors. Therapy can help. In a safe empathic relationship , unhelpful expectations and habits can be retired, and happier habits of relating to life and others can be learned, chosen and implemented.

I will be interested in your current life, your history and memories, your hopes for the future, your dreams and fantasies, and the relationship that develops between you and me.
My typical client is an adult of exceptional intelligence, creativity, achievement, and kindness, who needs to address problems in his or her life. These problems include depression, anxiety, the disease of addiction, childhood trauma,the addictions of others, and/or difficulties in forming or enjoying relationships. Too many people emerge from childhood with wounds from parental loss, abuse, or neglect. Some carry genetic loadings for addiction. The aftermath of these is devastating, despite success and "looking good." Revealing the pain to another person and revising basic assumptions about yourself and others in a safe relationship can help.

I also specialize in therapy that focuses on the relationship between the child and parents.
My therapeutic approach mainly focuses on helping my clients identify their strengths to help alleviate anxiety, depression, and trauma. I am a firm believer that our childhood experiences contribute to our beliefs, behavioral patterns, and selecting a romantic partner. Therapy is a process! To allow ourselves to be intimate and vulnerable with someone about our experiences and trauma can be daunting. As a therapist, it is my goal to help validate, create a safe environment and help understand aspects of lived experiences.

With over 15 years of experience as a licensed psychologist focusing on relationship issues , I believe therapy is most effective when it provides both a safe space for reflection as well as a challenge. In my work, I see couples, individuals and families who want to improve their intimate relationships at home with their partner and children as well as their relational skills at work . I think good therapy calls for sensitivity, authenticity, open-mindedness, honesty, collaboration and most of all having your best interests at heart.

I work with individuals and couples who are experiencing unresolved trauma, anxiety, depression, stress, addictions, relationship issues , life transitions, and a variety of other psychological concerns.
Psychotherapy is a gift we give to ourselves. That hour per week we set aside to explore our inner worlds - our thoughts, our emotions, and our sensations - and get some relief, heal, integrate, and grow. It is an honor for me to share that hour with you, to accompany you, to witness you, and to discover with you.

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 Palo Alto relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Palo Alto.
