Life is full of difficult choices and complicated circumstances but it is meant to be active, happy and full. Many people find themselves living a life of quiet desperation instead of the life they want. This can be because of genetic vulnerabilities, a childhood that was not sensitive to what you needed in specific developmental stages, or choices that have not supported you. Instead of trying harder at the same old solutions, I help you to shift your level of functioning and satisfaction. Research supports rewiring the neural networks in our brain to bring real and lasting change. I provide a warm, safe place to change.

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in Carmel Valley, San Diego 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.
