My clientele enjoy adding to their distinct personal arsenal of success oriented skills - they are not broken. Occasionally, any one of us can lose sight of what it is we uniquely have to offer. We can get fiercely myopic and tunnel visioned, especially in the wake of a loss, a disappointment, or a tragedy. This can manifest in arguments at home and missed promotions. We tend to forget about our vast assets. I'd like to help your remember what works best with the way you are constructed, from the inside out, how to retain it, and consistently apply it; ideally, we'll enhance what is already working and take it to the next level.

We are wired for relationship. What we feel and believe at a gut level is in large part because of connections made in our brains and bodies through relational experiences. Our attachments are vital to how we learn and are soothed, feel safe and explore, and grow and change throughout our lives. This is also why many of the wounds we try to heal were so often formed in earlier relationships. So, although we gain much wisdom and benefit from our individual efforts to change, it's difficult for healing truths—like that we are worthy of love and belonging exactly as we are—to really sink in when they are detached from relationship.

It feels like you’re always arguing and can’t seem to agree on even the simplest things. Loneliness permeates the home even when you’re sitting right next to each other. The person you fell in love with is beginning to feel a lot more like a roommate. Just getting through a dinner together feels like a chore. You miss the days when you were excited to be in each other’s presence, when you would hold hands and snuggle. The spark has faded, and the passion has vanished. Over the years you’ve hurt each other and you’re still struggling to find forgiveness. Reconnecting with your partner seems impossible, like there’s no way out.

Unprocessed anger, relationship conflicts, somatic distress, mood disturbances, and traumatic repetitions: these experiences do not have to determine or define you. The symptoms that you bring will show us where and how to direct our listening. They are footholds on a pathway that leads to towards expressing something important and unique to you. Bringing words to these unsymbolized experiences opens up the possibility for change. It takes courage to explore the unknowns of oneself, but this allows for a new experience to emerge. I invite you to take a step toward this unknown now. What could be if you allow yourself to truly speak?

I specialize in working with folks who are struggling with relationships, be they in them or wanting them or grieving the loss of them. This can mean romantic, platonic, familial, work-based, and the relationships with different parts of ourselves, like that inner critic we sometimes hear. I practice somatic psychotherapy, meaning I understand emotions as physical experiences, or that physical, emotional, and mental factors are crucially interrelated. Reasons for seeking therapy are as diverse and complex as people are and the urge is rarely a singular one; my holistic approach reflects this to be able to meet you where you are.

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.
