For couples counseling I use Emotionally Focused Therapy, an empirically proven method of healing relationships based on attachment theory.
Located near the Irvine Spectrum, I invite you to come in for a free consultation to learn how I can help heal anxiety, depression,adult children of alcoholics, and create better relationships for couples and families. Therapy is not a one-size-fits-all, let me assess what is going on for you and learn about the areas of stress in your life. I use a variety of methods, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Relaxation/Guided Imagery and Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples and families. I also specialize in blended families and co-parenting issues as a certified Parenting with Love and Logic Facilitator.

Women suffering with trauma -There you are once again, holding back the tears and acting like everything is okay. Deep down you're wishing someone would see that you’re not. Maybe if people knew what you’ve been through, they’d stop telling you to just think positive. Perhaps you don’t even realize that you have been traumatized. You just know you need help because the anxiety is overwhelming and you’re tired of fighting hopeless thinking and depression all the time. I am here so you don’t have to feel helpless under the weight of these emotions.

Additionally, I treat individuals working to overcome obstacles or are just feeling "stuck." Immediate symptom reduction includes anxiety, depression, repeated patterns of behavior, obsessive & addictive behaviors, lack of focus, insecurities and confidence issues. For some clients conventional talk therapy is extremely effective. For others, a more aggressive approach which is what prompted my EMDR 5 Day Intensive program. This includes 5 consecutive days of on-going EMDR which continues to prove amazing results!

I work primarily with men who have hit “rock bottom” and would like help getting up. These men are often in crisis when we first meet. The issues I address are typically related to unhealthy sexual behaviors, infidelity, financial recklessness, gambling, drugs/alcohol, dishonesty/lying, and relational conflicts. My therapy approach is a combination of psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioral, and the 12-Step recovery model. I also share insight from my own painful but redemptive recovery journey.

Am I the right therapist for you? Helping client's is the primary goal of every therapist. What can you do for me that the others can't? That is a valid question. Many healthcare providers provide symptom management rather than treating the main problem. I mainly use Solution Focused Therapy to focus on client's present and future and to find solutions for their problems. The therapy is not about me; its about you. However, in addition to my years of education, I bring a life-time of personal life experience and an extensive personal knowledge to the sessions.

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. Mission Viejo 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.
