Relationship issues , depression, anxiety, and trauma are my specialities.
Why is it always easier to beat ourselves up than to say loving and empathic things to ourselves? I believe that we are comprised of multiple "parts" and that sometimes our negative parts are so loud, we have trouble connecting to our self-compassion. It can feel easier to perpetuate personal stories of unworthiness than to locate our strength. In my practice, I know that regardless of their pasts, everyone deserves compassion and the support to rewrite painful stories. It is easy to forget that moments of happiness are not the same thing as having meaning and purpose in life.

Hi! I’m really looking forward to meeting and welcoming you to a safe, accepting space where you can share. Being a human is hard! And parenting humans is tough too! When we're triggered all over the place and when we're scared, it's hard to be in an authentic relationship with others. But when we take care of ourselves, when we really understand ourselves, then we can show up in our relationships in ways that lead to more connection, which is what we all want.

Each meeting expands my approach to finding solutions to human problems. It's my pleasure to help people enhance their quality of life, improve stress management skills, and renew their emotional resilience, whether the challenge is one of relationship , health, or performance. I have skills in cognitive and health psychology, biofeedback, and hypnosis to aid in rapid progress toward goals. Learning how to quickly gain self-control of one's mind and body easily increases confidence and improves mood. Because I'm focused and active in my work, clients often find my approach refreshing and rewarding.

GASLIGHTING; NARCISSIST ABUSE; CODEPENDENCY; TOXIC ATTACHMENT; HI-CONFLICT RELATIONSHIP : Gaslighting is a form of psychological/emotional abuse where the abuser manipulates situations repeatedly to trick the victim into doubting his/her own memory, perception & sanity. You're accused of doing something that you know you didn't do or say. Often belittled, demeaned, and raged upon. You walk on eggshells & constantly need to watch what you say for fear your partner might blow up. You often feel confused & now distrust yourself; have trouble making decisions & feel like you lost yourself or don't know the person you used to be.

I work with people who wish to change self-limiting beliefs and destructive behaviors. I'll assist them in becoming aware of triggers, habits and unexamined assumptions which keep them stuck in repetitive cycles. By developing insight and understanding, they're often empowered to make new choices that are more in harmony with who they are and what they truly want.

I work relationally and, as a result, care deeply about your experience of our work and our relationship . I will encourage you to pay attention to how our work is impacting you emotionally and physically. I can work with you briefly to address a discrete issue or longer term to address a more pervasive difficulty.

Are you unhappy in your primary relationship ? Have you suffered the loss of a love? Are addictions (yours or your partners) hurting you and the people you love? Would you like to have a more fulfilling sexual relationship with your partner? I have been helping couples increase emotional and physical intimacy for over 20 years. I take a directive approach to helping couples communicate more effectively. Often they find this results in more frequent supportive and loving interactions. Therapy can help you become more empowered in all your relationships. This often results in being more productive at work as well.

My first job as a therapist is to listen and understand. Deep listening is a time honored tradition and fundamental to healing. I strive to create a safe and nurturing relationship with clients that is a source of comfort and inspiration. Clients inspire me too! I practice spiritually grounded psychotherapy. This means I see life's challenges as, fundamentally, opportunities to grow spiritually and as a whole person. To me, the process of healing is beautiful and miraculous, something that gives us glimpses of a benevolent force much greater than ourselves.

I treat a variety of problems and specialize in helping people with anxiety, depression, relationship problems, and adult transitions.
Do you find yourself repeating unhealthy patterns? Or overwhelmed or immobilized by fears, despair, or changes beyond your control? excessively worried, irritable or on edge? spiraling downwards? feeling helpless and alone? You may have symptoms of anxiety, depression, or stress. They can impact your overall quality of life and your day-to-day functioning. They can also lead to misunderstandings in your relationships with loved ones at home, friends, or co-workers on the job. Fortunately, through psychotherapy, you can regain a sense of personal direction over your life, find new solutions, and feel good about your decisions.

Be it wrestling with unresolved trauma, anxiety and/or depression, relationship challenges, and/or parenting issues, a couple of my therapeutic goals entail exploring effective ways of adjusting to change and discovering an acceptance of past life experiences.
As we evolve through life, we are faced with challenges and new roles that may make us feel inadequate and uncomfortable. It is not uncommon for a person to feel stuck or lost during this time. For the past 25 years, in an educational and therapeutic setting, I have worked along side families, adults, and couples to help create effective ways to tackle such challenges. When we negatively question our self-worth and strengths, it is time to develop productive ways to break old patterns and see through truthful lenses.

I have over 10 years of experience, specializing in working with transition-aged youth (ages 16-24), adults, and families that struggle with trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship issues , substance misuse, among other life challenges that people may face.
Welcome! What is a mosaic? It is little imperfect pieces of glass or tile that come together to form beautiful art. How can we create a mosaic within ourselves and in our lives? All the broken pieces of glass or tile can represent trauma, experiences, life journeys, parts of our self, etc. that we sometimes don't necessarily know how to understand them all to incorporate them into our sense of self. I have a passion for working with people to help put these pieces together in a way that creates the beautiful mosaic that is YOU!

Who doesn't need therapy? Therapy is unique. It is a safe space where you can be completely who you are. Within the therapy relationship , you are able to say things that you have bottled up, you are given opportunity to identify your blind spots without judgment or shame, and you are able to attune to what you really want in life. I am a big believer in hearing your own voice, getting in touch with your values, and making decisions that align with what is important 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 San Carlos relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in San Carlos.
