Together, we can work through feelings of confusion, insecurity and fear associated with significant individual and relationship transitions, crisis events and medical and emotional challenges.

Clients often seek therapy in order to effect some form of change in their lives. My work is less about change and more about understanding and acceptance. Our work is a collaborative format in which I assist you in understanding your unconscious motivations and accepting yourself just as your are. In other words, meeting you where you are and encouraging you to do the same. Change is secondary to self-acceptance. It is only when we love and accept ourselves that we can extend this grace to others. Currently we are living in a time of unprecedented uncertainness. Acceptance leads to less stress and a healthier immune system.

Are you dealing with anxiety-based fears such as self doubt (I will never find satisfying employment) or excessive worrying (I won't have enough money, I am not where I should be in my career, no one will want to be with me)? Or perhaps you feel self conscious (I am afraid to go to social events, I have nothing to contribute). These feelings are often triggered daily, by negative thoughts, a smell from childhood, an upcoming holiday or an impeding airplane trip. Where did these thoughts and feelings come from and how are they holding you back?

I work collaboratively in order for you to get to a 'better' place. I have accumulated a wealth of experience helping others combat challenges of not being able to have children by traditional means. I worked with patients exploring 'good' solutions to this heart-rending process. My goal involves helping individuals deal with the normal and not so normal life challenges of depression, self-esteem, anxiety, relationships, children, parents, and more.

We have all had times where we are struggling, feel low or "off", may not even have a real "reason" why these feelings are coming up for us. Or those times where an event, situation, loss, change in our daily functioning has lead us to not feel that we have the right skills to live our best lives and we just don't know what to do. Therapy is an answer for someone who wants to explore these feelings, to work through the difficult times and to learn about oneself in an unbiased, non-judgmental environment.

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. Santa Monica 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.
