"Tired of crying yourself to sleep, blowing up "for no reason", feeling "on edge" and nervous, bickering with significant others, and feeling the need to defend yourself ? Chronic conflict and stress can leave us feeling drained and exhausted, with little hope for the future and no desire to try again. Your life and relationships may be "stuck" in a cycle of unmet needs and misunderstandings. Few of us grew up in ideal families or learning all we need to know about managing conflict and expressing our needs and emotions effectively."

"Let me help you "Design Your Life!" We tend to design certain parts of our lives, maybe where we're going to live, or what kind of job we want to have. But when it comes to the most important things: relationships, marriages, parenting, and our own happiness, we often tend to just land where we land. Then we wonder why we are not happy or why things are not working out the way we had hoped. My goal is to help you get in the "driver's seat" of your life, to find true fulfillment, to "Design Your Life.""

"I believe a central component of the therapeutic process is the relationship that's established between the therapist and the client. A safe and trusting relationship provides an environment in which you are able to explore those unresolved issues and old patterns that are not letting you have the quality of life you would like to have. Therapy is an opportunity to identify what's not working for you, view it from different angles, and learn strategies that will result in alternate ways of relating to yourself and to others that may be more conducive to becoming the person you want to be."

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. 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.
