Every person has their own unique process of healing and growth. Psychotherapy is a valuable pathway towards finding balence and wholeness in your life. As your therapist, I approach my work with profound respect for your individual nature, values, and beliefs. Psychotherapy is essentially a collaborative process, in which we work together to explore the difficulties you're facing and to find solutions that will work for you. When the essence of your 'self' is truly understood, real possibilities for meaningful change can emerge. My goal is to support your journey as you move towards a more fulfilling and authentic life.

I like helping people find contentment and happiness in their lives. I believe it is important to understand one's self and one's personal values and to make choices that are positive and life-affirming. I have had extensive experience working with people having experienced trauma and loss, relationship problems, and who have substance abuse problems. Creative people are also one of my specializations. My training is primarily psycho-dynamic along with cognitive-behavioral orientation. I believe mindfulness, spirituality and forgiveness are ways of helping alter patterns of behavior that can keep us stuck in our lives.

Addressing difficulties in relationships, transitions, change and trauma as well as depression, anxiety, stress and chronic/acute illness are my areas of expertise. Change is difficult and transitions can be challenging. Sometimes life can feel overwhelming or out of control, and asking for help can be really difficult, even scary. It's common to feel overwhelmed, confused, or lost in an emotional place that feels endless with no escape. I am here to provide a safe space where we can work together to help you find a way out and build a path forward toward healing, balance, happiness and meaning.

Together we can identify and address the obvious and not-so-obvious patterns in life, such as engaging in unsatisfying relationships, or having difficulty following through with life or career projects. Therapy can provide you with the tools and insight to make meaningful changes in your life and in your most important relationships, and develop a deeper sense of self-knowledge and awareness.

Your overall wellness extends beyond your physical health and, by taking this first step to find a therapist, you are showing yourself love and compassion. Thank you for making your emotional and mental well-being a priority. Change takes time, is difficult, and can be scary but is ultimately, liberating and transformative. When we make changes in our lives, we open ourselves up to growth and new possibilities. Ghandi believed “the future depends on what you do today.” I believe each of us can overcome the obstacles that impact our relationships, happiness, quality of life, and keep us from being our most authentic selves.

You've talked many times about what’s been troubling you. You’ve wondered where to go to get help?And while you may have resisted that idea at first, you know you need help now. Figuring your life or relationship out on your own and consulting others doesn’t necessarily leave you wanting to take their advice, only trying to figure out the root of your differences, adding more frustration. The stress of it all leaves you wanting to tap out of the conversation, approaching your limit. You just want to scream, but you’re trying to hide the fact that you’re in so much pain. Today you thought to yourself, “I’m ready” to start living.

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 and communities, including the BIPOC community in Pasadena. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Pasadena

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.
