In my approach to therapeutic relationship I bring compassion, warmth and thoughtfulness that help my clients understand the source of their unhappiness, their unmet needs and find the ways to meet those needs.
We all experience difficulties at some point in our lives- this is part of being human. Some people are able to move on and some get "stuck" for reasons that are not always clear. Psychotherapy offers an opportunity to explore these reasons in a safe, accepting environment and inspires personal growth. Therapy itself can be short (a few sessions) or long term, and in successful cases its positive impact lasts a lifetime. For the last 20 years I've helped individuals who struggled with depression, anxiety, relationship or parenting issues, low self-esteem and more to reach their goals.

My specialties include working with relationship concerns, feelings of anxiety and depression, self-doubt and insecurity, assertiveness training, parenting concerns, women's issues, loss and life transitions.
My first career was in the business world, working in corporate America and on Wall Street. I understand the demands of a high paced career and how easy it is to become disconnected from our relationships and ourselves, and lose sight of our values and goals. I specialize with high performing professionals who prefer a directive and solution-based therapeutic style. I've been working with individuals and couples for over a decade, helping them improve the way they feel about themselves and enhance the quality of their relationships.

My specialties include working with depression, anxiety, and relationship issues , as well as issues surrounding marriage and divorce.
I've worked successfully with adults and adolescents for 20+ years. Many therapists are seasoned and technically sound, but to many clients, something still feels lacking. I receive repeated feedback regarding clients' appreciation of my nonjudgemental support and guidance, my ability to understand the great shame people feel about their relationships and lives. I have a knack for forming trusting relationships with teens, allowing them to experience open communication, which, over time, tends to replicate itself within the family system. I can help you with feelings of insecurity, anxiety, depression. I understand addiction issues and treatment strategies that work.

Sometimes our relationships with others, or ourselves, get stuck. We may have lost direction, purpose, or meaning, and we become unsure of who we are or who we are in relationship to other people in our lives. We feel alone, sad, or scared. Some of us become overwhelmed by naming these emotions, and some may choose to isolate ourselves and think we must navigate this life alone. In these moments, I believe we are invited to pay attention; when we do, we begin the journey toward growth and healing. I think therapy can be a gift, where you are invited to look inward to become whole.

When I have availability I work with couples, focusing on specific communication skills and on complementing differences in the relationship .
I am currently not taking new clients. Are you feeling emotions that are difficult to handle; issues surfacing that you're ready to take a look at? Feeling stressed, anxious or depressed? Possibly your relationships are strained or unsatisfying. Maybe you're struggling with parenting a teenager, or you are a teenager wanting someone to listen? These are all areas of interest to me. I have worked with individuals, couples for over 22 years and am still amazed that while therapy is often not easy, it is truly worth the effort for most people. I have a calm, supportive, interactive style and welcome working with you.

Do you find yourself repeatedly reacting to recurring emotional triggers; trapped in repetitive negative cycles in your relationships, or unable to figure out how to move forward to a more positive, secure bond with your partner? My warmth, humor and interactive style creates trust and safety to encourage and support you. Clients express that they feel relief from symptoms of stress, such a anxiety or depression, and experience feeling more emotional flexibility and balance.

Rather than focus on particular issues, I tend to focus on developing a certain kind of relationship .
Many people come to me wondering why they're unhappy, anxious, or unable to find fulfillment. The problem may seem obvious but a solution impossible. The same painful experiences repeat themselves, but why? And how to change them? If we meet, I will try to understand you as fully as I can and to help you come to grips with your problems. In doing so, you may discover, as sometimes happens, that there are ways to experience yourself and others that are genuinely different from what you've known thus far.

I believe that the strongest tool we have to help you through the rough times will be the quality of our relationship .
Are you feeling lost in life or in your relationship ? My work with couples and individuals is about helping to make sense of what is happening on a deeper level. It may be that you feel anxious, angry or depressed too often. Or you might find yourself acting in ways that hurt instead of help. As we begin to understand what is behind all of this a process gets set in motion. I stay with your through this process as an insightful, empathic and supportive partner.

I help adults and couples with relationship and codependency issues, grief and loss, depression, anxiety and addictive patterns with self and others.

My goal is to support you in finding and strengthening your own inner voice. When we learn to free ourselves from old, stuck patterns of relating (in mind and body), we often feel a lightness of being that allows us to experience more joy in our everyday lives.

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 Walnut Creek relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Walnut Creek.
