As a former attorney and mediator, I spent years helping couples navigate the painful effects of divorce and witnessed firsthand the agony that disconnection will cause the human soul.
Therapy can be daunting prospect. If you are considering treatment, especially for the first time, it is normal to feel nervous, cynical, or scared. But rest assured that for many individuals, therapy can become the very safe place in which growth is possible. One in which judgement is replaced with understanding, criticism with acceptance.

Some of my areas of expertise include: anxiety, ADHD, OCD, depression, trauma, family dynamics, life transitions, marital issues, divorce, and co-parenting.
Working through difficult experiences and emotions can be challenging. It can be even harder to make desired changes in ones life when certain patterns have been established for so long. I work hard to ensure that my clients feel safe and supported throughout this process. By creating a comfortable and lighthearted environment, individuals, families, and couples are able to gain some reprieve from the difficulties they are experiencing. This allows change to begin to occur in the lives of my clients.

By integrating divorce coaching as an area of expertise I can walk the path with a client to help them feel that they are not alone, as well as save them some money by us working in conjunction with their attorney to organize paperwork, focus on goals and walk through emotions to be their best self in the process.

It’s grueling for anyone considering divorce because they have lost their passion for their partner, are eternally conflicted, or feeling weighed down in their relationship. You might be worried about how your kids will take the news, if you can financially recover, or even second-guessing if divorce is the right move.

Divorce Therapists
The dissolution of a marriage is almost always an upsetting event, at the very least marked by disappointment and the loss of dreams and expectations.

A divorce therapist in Encinitas can help you by exploring the struggles you’re facing, identifying whether or not those problems can be resolved, creating a realistic picture of what life would look like after divorce, and how your children could be affected and protected. In the process of answering these questions, a divorce therapist helps you work towards acceptance and forgiveness.
