When you have tried to resolve issues on your own, and things just aren't changing, it is time to seek professional help. Perhaps your or your significant other's past and unresolved issues are what is creating the distress; an inability to trust, to feel joy and happiness, to pursue dreams. It is important to seek help early on so that things do not worsen.

My own experience has taught me that pain is a gift. Pain awakens us to the areas of our lives that are in need of attention, balance and healing. I offer people a safe and nurturing environment to explore the interior landscapes of their lives and discover hope and strength as they move toward the healing solutions they are looking for. I view the process of therapy as a sacred journey and enter the journey with the utmost respect, humility and compassion.

Your new relationship started out amazingly well. Yet, within a few months you notice that you are getting into conflict with your new partner and the arguments sound strangely familiar. Deep down you wonder if you found another person who is just like your ex or if you are the common denominator? Could you be causing the same negative patterns to occur over and over again in your relationships? If so, this is great news because the only person you can change is yourself. If you are motivated to understand what you are doing to trigger conflict in your relationships, give me a call!

"Well, it's always something!" How often have we all heard and said this phrase. Yet it's true. Life is always presenting us with"somethings" - loss, problems, distress, despair - obstacles to our happiness and well-being, and to our relationships. It is a very wise decision to reach out for help. Yet I know it is also stressful to try to decide on a therapist. Let me share with you who I am and my approach as a therapist. I unfailingly believe it is possible for people to make positive changes in their lives and to heal past and present trauma and pain.

So often we have a deep feeling that we're not enough and we expend so much energy trying to hide this fear from others. It makes us feel anxious and depressed. We might even start to isolate ourselves and our personal relationship begin to suffer and become less satisfying. We all have ways that we try to get out of it or have tried to "fix" it in the past...but they don't work or at least not for very long.

I believe that life ebbs and flows with the changes of life's demands. Many of these changes are positive ones, but at times hardships can follow, needing assistance and guidance in finding solutions. This is where the therapeutic process can help in alleviating your symptoms, bringing about new energy and happiness in enjoying life's many adventures. My enjoyment in the therapeutic process is one of discovery and collaboration in identifying difficulties and solutions to the patient's problems. Above all, I believe the relationship between the patient and therapist is the cornerstone to achieving the patient's goals.

I am passionate about helping others live the life they deserve! Unfortunately, past traumas, experiences and life circumstances change our perception and view of the world. Fear, depression, anxiety and mistrust can interfere with our ability to pursue dreams, aspirations and healthy relationships.

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in Newport Beach 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.
