I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 15 years of experience. I see children, adolescents, and adults in individual therapy who are struggling with a variety of issues, including depression, anxiety, relationship struggles, life cycle challenges, trauma/abuse and many more. People cope with and try to manage their past and present to the best of their ability. However, at times it can be overwhelming and may also create additional barriers as people often outgrow their coping skills, or their skills and tools are simply no longer working for them.

Marriage and relationships are challenging and it is even harder to ask for what you want. Often people believe they are broken or their desires are shameful and I work to create change and facilitate communication. As a licensed psychotherapist, specializing in sex therapy, I work to help individuals, partners, and couples to connect. It is my passion to heal shame, have the hard talks, and facilitate communication. Personally, I know the challenges of maintaining the passion in a long term relationship and I don't believe it is normal to give up on intimacy.

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!

I collaborate with my clients to create a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship .
Life sometimes throws you unexpected challenges that can make you feel overwhelmed, anxious, and hopeless. If you are struggling with life challenges that are impacting your quality of life, I am here to tell you there is hope. Loss is often one of our biggest life challenges that trigger mental health issues. Grief is a natural response to loss, whether that is a loss of a relationship , job, or death of a loved one, it can also bring up thoughts and feelings of past traumas. Processing and learning about loss and grief and what to expect when grieving can help you grow and heal.

We often seek therapy when we feel overwhelmed—by depression, anxiety, relationship conflict, or a life transition. I create an empathic, non-judgmental space where you can gain insight, recognize your strengths, and become more confident and secure. I believe each person is the expert on their own life and experience. Together, we’ll identify the patterns that are holding you back, as well as your unique strengths. I tailor my approach to best meet your needs and abilities. Sometimes, that means I provide practical, active strategies so you can feel more calm, balanced, and empowered.

Everyone experiences challenges and pain in life, yet when they happen to you it's an experience that is uniquely yours. It takes courage to face uncomfortable feelings and to cultivate an open heart. To recognize you need support and seek treatment is good coping. I work with a wide variety of clients experiencing traumas; transitions; anxiety and OCD; grief and loss; sad mood, guilt, hopelessness; excessive worry; overwhelm; irritability/anger; relationship strain/conflict; identity issues; and work/school stress. I'm trained in pregnancy/postpartum adjustments through Postpartum Support International, and OCD through IOCDF/BTTI.

When you are ready we will work together in building a therapeutic relationship and help you reach your treatment goals.
Starting therapy can feel intimidating and finding the right therapist can feel even harder. We often face challenges that feel overwhelming and as if we're out of control. Having support and learning skills plays a major role in how we cope and move forward with these challenges, even when it feels like moving forward isn't possible or just too much to face. As an LMFT I aim to work collaboratively with clients to empower and uplift them through life's challenges.

Accepting New Patients. When we feel stuck in our situation, it can create feelings of hopelessness. In addition to the many problems that complicate our daily lives such as anxiety, panic attacks, depression, patients come to me with complex relationship issues including marital distress, divorce recovery, verbal & emotional abuse, loss of child, parent, or spouse. I approach therapy from a holistic perspective, to address the root problem, not just the symptoms. Like physical therapy, the goal is to get well and end treatment. I offer perspective on your experience, and provide clear, concise directions on meeting your goals.

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 Salinas relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Salinas.
