My work is deeply grounded in the principles of Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB), wherein personal development and functioning is viewed as the relationship between body, mind and relationships.
As humans, we are frequently challenged with the need to adjust-- to unforeseen changes and transitions, to loss, to injury and illness, or to the pressures of everyday life. And sometimes adjustment is needed in relation to an event or process of our own choosing (divorce, elective surgery, spiritual quest). For individuals who wish to deepen their understanding of themselves and their circumstances, or for those struggling with specific challenges, my commitment is to come alongside and help you cope, gain insight, problem-solve, heal, and adjust such that life can be lived as fully and genuinely as possible.

I believe that our lives are built on relationships. Be it between parent and child, partner and partner, supervisor and employee, or peer and peer, relationships can be healing and rewarding, but they can also be painful and difficult. We all know the stress and heartache that can come from a relationship in distress and we all know that desperate, painful feeling of wanting relief. Helping people find their way through these difficulties and back to each other is one of the most rewarding and exciting things I do. I specialize in helping families connect and thrive.

Are you struggling with unexpected twists and turns that life has taken, for yourself individually or in your parenting relationship with your child? Are you struggling to cope, feel frequently irritable, or often disappointed? Does your child have big behaviors and perhaps even BIGGER emotions that you're finding it difficult to support them in? Maybe you want to be a parent but it's been a difficult to become one and you're losing hope or considering adoption or infertility treatment. I'd love to connect with you, to meet you exactly where you are at right now, and to support you to grow in the way that is right for you.

Creating a new and healthy relationship with the therapist is seen as the central factor in treatment using this approach.
Life has become a myriad of stress and strain for many people and my goal is to help clients gain a sense of health and well-being. In individual therapy I utilize a psychodynamic approach in which work with clients unfold as a mutual, collaborative process occurring in an atmosphere of safety and respect. I view a clients' problem(s) in a framework that places an emphasis on how their past emotional and interpersonal experiences are affecting the way they are today. I believe that a client's unconscious can influence their inner experience (e.g., thoughts and feelings).

Life can be hard. You're struggling, moving through life wondering if this is it, if this is a good as it’s going to get. Its like someone or some thing picked up the snow globe of your life and shook it. Now all the pieces are flying around and everything feels overwhelming, uncertain. You don’t know how to put things back together again and are maybe not even sure you really want to. It can feel like you will never be happy again. Change is hard and often it's really shitty.

We have all envisioned some version of our ideal selves. Often times past hurts or traumas can affect our lives so that we act out from a place of brokenness rather than healing and compassion. The dissonance our present selves and who we aspire to be can lead to frustration, depression, anxiety, and despair. If you are feeling stagnant and looking for ways to shift out of unhealthy self-defeating patterns, you have come to the right place.

Let's be honest, relationships are hard work! Therapy takes intentional effort, vulnerability and persistence to bring about meaningful change in our lives. Before that change can occur, we must first learn what is going on. I want to help you identify the negative patterns in your life and provide tools to replace them with new life-giving actions and transforming truths to bring about healing and restoration in your relationships.

Feeling weighed down and responsible for how everyone else around you feels is as exhausting as it is frustrating. You’re tired of the emotional burden of saying “yes” when you really mean “no” & of contorting yourself in whatever way will make others feel most comfortable. Now as you step into a new phase of life as a parent, you worry about setting boundaries with intrusive family members. Your stomach twists into knots and your chest tightens thinking about being bulldozed once again by other’s opinions of your choices. Even worse, you could be seen as "the bad guy" and as being "selfish" for speaking up for what you really need.

The human spirit has an amazing capacity for resilience, but sometimes it's too hard to access it on your own. When we encounter challenges and problems in relationships, in our workplaces, in our families, we can feel overwhelmed, hopeless, & stuck. It's not uncommon to feel depressed or anxious, or seek out unhealthy ways to function that mask the hurt. It's in situations like these that it takes great strength to reach out and ask for help--to seek someone to come alongside and enter into your experience; help shoulder the burden, and rediscover and connect with that resiliency.

Are you feeling anxious, irritable, or foggy these days? Do you resent your partner or snap at them over little things? The changes that have come with growing a family feel overwhelming, but it’s hard to admit that you aren’t doing ok. Everyone says this is the best time of your life, but you barely recognize yourself. Your body and mind are exhausted, and you feel like you don’t know where to begin. You want to regain balance, focus, and a sense of who you are now beyond just being a parent or trying to become a parent. Let me help you find your way back to 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 South East, Pasadena relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in South East, Pasadena.
