My training includes attachment work, parent coaching/training, family systems, cognitive behavioral therapy, couples therapy, and trauma focused models.
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.

The human spirit has an amazing capacity for resilience, but sometimes it's too hard to access it on your own. When we encounter challenges and problems in relationships, in our workplaces, in our families, we can feel overwhelmed, hopeless, & stuck. It's not uncommon to feel depressed or anxious, or seek out unhealthy ways to function that mask the hurt. It's in situations like these that it takes great strength to reach out and ask for help--to seek someone to come alongside and enter into your experience; help shoulder the burden, and rediscover and connect with that resiliency.

It's been a struggle recently. You are feeling stretched thin. You think of yourself as a kind, caring and giving person. Although you've tried to keep it together, your feelings of stress, tiredness and frustration are leaking out. What's worse is that this especially shows up in your interactions with the people who are closest to you. You're wondering how you got here and if you are even the person you thought you were. You are feeling disconnected from yourself and others, tired and raw.

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in Pasadena 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.
