Most people come into therapy in the midst of a crisis. Usually they have been sitting on their feelings and anxieties for weeks before they bite the bullet and seek help. They come into my office in a sort of terror, and their immediate goal is to make the pain stop as quickly as possible. I am much more interested in getting to know your pain than in getting rid of it. I want to know where the pain stems from, how you suppress it, why it scares you and from whom you hide it. That way we aren't "fixing" your pain in this moment, but we are preparing for the next time life inevitably throws a version of that pain at you.

Maybe you are pursuing something that is important to you--a relationship, family, degree, a career... Yet you find yourself overwhelmed, depressed, angry, or unable to move forward. Maybe you act differently in an effort to meet someone else’s expectations, win the approval of others, avoid being picked on, or just to fit in. This act of contorting one’s self can be taxing, and you might wonder who you actually are these days. Sometimes remnants we carry from our past can impact the building meaningful relationships with others. This can interrupt the pursuit of important life goals and stifle us from becoming our truest selves.

Do you know what you want? Do you want to be free? Happy? Relaxed in your body? Content? Passionate and sexy? Courageous in the face of fear? More connected to your partner or to the Divine? How do you get in the way of living the life you want? Do you constantly judge yourself? Noticing all the ways you "fail" to live up to way you "should" be. Or do you tend to direct that criticism outwards? Blaming others, feeling envy, or always waiting for external circumstances to line up just right so you can finally live how you want.

When it's an uphill battle to manage anxiety, low self-worth or impulsive self-sabotaging habits, it’s probably time to get some help. Life doesn't need to feel so hard. I facilitate the wisdom and drive to heal already inside you. It's normal to feel transformation may be out of reach. But I have helped many people thrive. Impulses, emotional overwhelm and habits often get "updated." It's common to feel more ease, self-accepting and empowered to make key changes. I excel at supporting and guiding my clients along their path. Many indicate they feel refreshed, transformed and nourished. Feel free to call. I'd love to tell you more.

Humans are pack animals. We depend on our relationships to survive. So, when we are deprived of the love and care of supportive relationships, we find ways to meet these needs in their absence. These strategies help us minimize our pain allowing us to survive childhood and navigate adulthood. Now you are finding that these survival strategies are becoming problems of their own. Do you struggle with letting your guard down, even for the people you love? Is it difficult to put your needs over the needs of others? Have you developed habits of avoiding "feeling" and find that you are disconnected from the world around you?

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in 94704 view problems within the family as the result not of particular members' behaviors, but of the family's group dynamic. The family is seen as a complex system having its own language, roles, rules, beliefs, needs and patterns. The therapist helps each individual member understand how their childhood family operated, their role in that system, and how that experience has shaped their role in the current family. Therapists with the MFT credential are usually trained in Family Systems therapy.
