It's time to start feeling better. You've tried distraction, talking to friends. But like a ball pushed underwater, your feelings of anxiety, unhappiness, grief or sadness keep surfacing. Distress disturbs your life, relationships and sleep. Worst of all, these bad feelings, like a shameful secret, isolate you. It doesn't have to be this way. Asking for help to feel better is a sign of strength, not weakness. I am dedicated to helping individuals and couples recognize and overcome the obstacles between them and their dreams. Personal growth, intimacy and self-confidence are natural outcomes of successful therapy.

Are you experiencing: relationship issues, anxiety, communication & intimacy concerns, infidelity, conflict, big life changes? Are you feeling overwhelmed, anxious or depressed, unable to make clear decisions? Maybe you and your partner keep having the same argument with no resolution - now there's a wall between you and you don't know how to be close and intimate again. Together, we will create a calm supportive environment to promote healing, and look at past betrayals (affairs, broken promises), that may be hindering your ability to trust and move forward. Working with a neutral professional trained in mediation will help!

Looking for a psychologist is difficult. It is important to find someone who is a close match with your needs. I approach therapy with an active style, providing direct feedback in a supportive manner. For more than twenty years, I have been successfully helping individuals and couples through EFT, find greater enjoyment in life. For therapy to work, I believe that the therapist needs to care about, and feel connected to, the individuals he or she works with. Psychotherapy is not just a job; helping people get better and live their life in a fuller happier way is something I strive for.

Humans are social beings. In the caveman days, those who were separated from the pack were not able to survive. A primitive part of our brain longs to stay connected to others. Unsuccessful relationships can feel like death. Sometimes we repeat relationship mistakes. Other times, we withdrawal but isolation can feel like a vast dessert with no end in sight. Luckily there is another way. Being in a healthy relationship with another human being is often a vital component to happiness. As your therapist, I would like to walk with you on your journey towards becoming more connected.

Emotionally Focused Therapists
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Los Altos Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
