Together, you'll examine both your family and relational history and current stage of life to provide you with the support you need to take control of your life.
Carrying the weight of the world is getting heavy. You’re doing your best but still feel like you’re falling short. Every step forward feels like two steps back. You don’t want to burn out in what are supposed to be the best years. Parental burnout, school burnout and job burnout are totally common. The early parenthood and early adulthood years are unique stages in life that are full of exciting —yet overwhelming— adjustments. Specializing in perinatal/maternal mental health, college-age issues and couples counseling, Trinity assists clients in finding ways to heal from childhood wounds in order to achieve a satisfying adult life.

Over the past 10 years of having my practice I have worked with children and adolescence to adults, either in individual, couple, or family sessions.
I have been given the greatest opportunity to be welcomed into my clients' lives and assist them in creating their definition and plan for a well life. I focus on the working relationship between my clients' and I, where theory and practice only enhances the work done in session. My goal is not to be a client's therapist every week for the rest of their lives, but rather to have them create the strength and determination to leave my office applying it to their everyday lives.

I believe that each of us has the capacity to heal from our experiences, no matter how difficult, painful, or traumatic. Though the circumstances that cause our pain may be shared, the journey of healing is an entirely unique and personal one. My goals are to help you define your journey and provide a landscape where you feel seen, heard, and above all else, safe along the way. Whether still setting your course, or well into your journey, therapy can be deeply rewarding.

I have worked with youth, individuals and families in a variety of settings from outpatient, day treatment programs, juvenile hall to Cuesta College Campus.
The approach I take as a therapist draws from both cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness practices. In short, people learn how to relate to their thoughts differently and as a result additionally gain insight, problem solving skills, communication skills, increased sense of control over feeling states and improved relationships. Through processes such as examination of your perceptions and beliefs, increasing your ability to be present in the here and now, exploration of your values, development of new skills and resolution of previous trauma, I've had the privilege of witnessing my clients experience symptom reduction and profound change.

Feeling isolated? An interesting career, friends, or loving family doesn’t protect you from feeling anxious, sad, & lonely. The needs of others come before your own? Sometimes, as children, we fundamentally altered who we were to adjust to trauma, role-reversals, and cold parenting. This can create an underdeveloped sense of self or we are sensitive the slightest shifts in the moods of others. Relationships are scary. When happiness finally starts to seep in, an overwhelming fear sets in that it will all collapse & disappear.

Each of you bring neurobiological, temperamental, patterns of reactivity and family history differences to the relationship.
Failing to get help, many divorced people regret that they gave up too soon. As a marriage specialist for over two decades, you can trust that you are in the care of a competent advocate for your marriage. Every marriage faces the power struggle -it's supposed to happen. Too many quit their marriage at this crucial time. Not giving yourselves the opportunity to work through this painful stage could be a tragedy because this very stage carries the seeds of true character growth and healing. An affair, dishonesty, conflict, or stress can rob you of the feelings of attunement.

I specialize in working with adolescents, young adults and their families, through individual, family and group counseling. I primarily utilize therapeutic approaches of Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction as part of individual and group counseling. Group counseling can enable individuals to form bonds with peers in a structured environment; understand that others can relate to their concerns; and share personal feelings that they have difficulty communicating.
