"Life is full of difficult choices and complicated circumstances but it is meant to be active, happy and full. Many people find themselves living a life of quiet desperation instead of the life they want. This can be because of genetic vulnerabilities, a childhood that was not sensitive to what you needed in specific developmental stages, or choices that have not supported you. Instead of trying harder at the same old solutions, I help you to shift your level of functioning and satisfaction. Research supports rewiring the neural networks in our brain to bring real and lasting change. I provide a warm, safe place to change. "

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. Carmel Valley, San Diego 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.
