"Attachment theory is grounded in the belief that we need connection with others as a means of survival. When we feel disconnected from the people that are most important to us, or endure trauma, our brain signals distress. We can experience a variety of symptoms such as anxiety, depression, difficulty concentrating, loss of sleep/appetite, behavior changes, etc. Repairing disconnections or processing trauma renews our sense of security and helps alleviate additional physical, mental, behavioral or environmental stressors. I am dedicated to helping you through this journey so you can be the best version of you."

" I specialize in guiding women to step into their power to create lives of authenticity, joy, and purpose. I believe that the experiences of all women are sacred. When women gain the tools to heal themselves, engage life from a place of worthiness, and awaken to their full creative potential, we have the power to transform the world. Sometimes in life we encounter experiences that obscure our potential to thrive and cause us to feel stuck or helpless in a sense of suffering."

"I help people to rapidly get to the core issues which keep them stuck in their lives, be it unhappy in their relationships, chronically depressed, angry, anxious, or just suffering. What almost always what creates suffering is the avoidance of painful feelings, either feelings from the past or recent events. When we avoid these painful feelings, we develop symptoms and suffer. The treatment approaches I use are evidence-based, meaning they've been researched, tested, and proven to work. And they lead to accelerated and long-lasting change, normally a fraction of the time it takes with other types of therapy. "

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.
