I help adults and couples with relationship and codependency issues, grief and loss, depression, anxiety and addictive patterns with self and others. I help you to create a relationship with yourself and others based on respect, caring and trust. This helps build the feeling of safety that lies at the core of any successful therapy. 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.

My ideal client is curious, growth inspired, and has experienced trauma. I work with codependency, those that have been effected by narcissism, addiction, low self worth and generational trauma. I have a fondness and offer my support to those that are parents, co-parents and caretakers of children, or those that can not take care of themselves. I enjoy working with people with relationships as their focus, walking them through dating and the search for a partner or those that feel stuck in their relationships and need a space to share their confusion, fear and not knowing.

Do you want to feel more satisfied with your life and relationships? Are you stuck in an unwanted role or struggling to change unhealthy patterns? I work with adults who are dealing with self-esteem issues, difficulty holding boundaries with others, anger management, anxiety, depression, addiction, and PTSD/C-PTSD. Making life changes alone can be challenging since people tend to live on autopilot and may not fully recognize the dynamics that are playing out in their lives. Everyone can benefit from a fresh perspective. Having greater clarity empowers people to make informed, reflective decisions instead of acting out of habit.

Struggles with anxiety, depression, weak boundaries, grief, make life difficult. Having close friendships, healthy family relationships, and a secure foundation with a romantic partner can seem an insurmountable goal. You want new ways to cope, to handle life's challenges, to connect with others. You want the mutual "give and take" that other's have in happy, secure friendships and relationships but you're afraid of being taken the wrong way, of getting more anxious, more depressed. The courage to try is in you, and you have tried, but it doesn't seem to be getting better.

You spend your weekends trying to unwind through happy hours and dating, but once the thrill fades, you feel drained again.

If you're looking for codependency counseling in Walnut Creek, or help for someone who's codependent, these trained codependency Walnut Creek therapists, or codependency Walnut Creek counselors, will assist.
