"I believe that our lives are built on relationships. Be it between parent and child, partner and partner, supervisor and employee, or peer and peer, relationships can be healing and rewarding, but they can also be painful and difficult. We all know the stress and heartache that can come from a relationship in distress and we all know that desperate, painful feeling of wanting relief. Helping people find their way through these difficulties and back to each other is one of the most rewarding and exciting things I do. I specialize in helping families connect and thrive."

"You have recognized that your sexual thoughts and behaviors are out of control, or you have discovered that your partner is compulsively using sex or pornography. You are likely feeling shame for your actions or deeply hurt and betrayed by your partner's actions, which is completely understandable. Seeking counseling can be a scary decision, so many avoid it until things get worse. Asking for help can be overwhelming, and it takes courage to reach out for support. I provide a safe space for your growth. (Long Beach also available) *Please note: I will be traveling from 11/13/19-11/28/19 and returning messages on 12/2/19*"

In psychotherapy, my goal is to accompany you on that path, help clear away the obstacles, and offer assistance until you reach the place that allows you to construct the life you want for yourself. Inviting courage, I conduct this process with honesty, gentleness and humor. I do this knowing - from experience - that people do change their lives."

"I was a middle school teacher for ten years. I enjoyed working with children and adolescents more than I did grading papers. I became a psychologist to help children and their families live healthier, more productive lives. I approach psychotherapy first from the perspective that insight into oneself provides then the power to choose and to change. If you don't understand what is going on, you are unlikely to make changes. Secondly, the power to change is enhanced by learning and applying better coping skills. Insight and tools provide a growth experience."

"From time to time I am honored to be asked some variant of the question, "What should I look for in choosing a therapist?" That is actually a pretty deep philosophical question and it is of vital importance as well. Out of respect for your time I will give you the short version, "Look for wisdom". People are usually expecting an answer like "high intelligence" or "vast knowledge" but while those characteristics are very important, the possible limitations of that giftedness set are obvious when you think of, for example, the large percentage of white collar criminals who possess it."

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in Pasadena using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.

As an approach to therapy, 'family therapy' (also referred to as family systems therapy, marital therapy, marriage therapy, marriage and family therapy, marital therapy and family counseling) views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members or couples.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Pasadena are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Pasadena you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Pasadena and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Pasadena or family therapy in Pasadena.
