I avoid taking an “expert” stance; flexibility is important and sometimes “one size does not fit all.” I orient toward making room for empathy and unconditional positive regard in the client/therapist relationship. I also believe in supportively challenging client “stuck points” that may be getting in the way of lasting change.

I believe everyone has a right to happiness. Do you feel anxious, depressed or overwhelmed? Are you uncertain how to fix a relationship dynamic that is toxic or problematic? Are you unhappy with an aspect of your life but feel stuck? When we are off balance it is easy for anxiety, depression and stress to occur. Conflict in relationships can become toxic rather than productive. Parenting strong-willed, intelligent children can become chaotic and troubling. In times like this it is often hard to find tools to effect change in the desired direction. I can help.

Let’s be honest. Being stuck in anxiety, fear, depression, and despair is very discouraging and frustrating. It feels awful, it limits you, makes you feel hopeless, and just creates suffering and conflict in your life. So, what can we do about it? We can ignore it and hope it goes away, read a bunch of self-help books, or maybe try that 5-step plan to happiness we read about late last night. Some of these things might work but sometimes we just need help from a caring therapist who really understands you and can help guide you to a healthier and happier you.

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.
