Basically we all want to be happy, feel fulfilled, be at peace and enjoy our days. We want to feel that our life has meaning and purpose and we strive for that in our relationships and priorities. We want to be free from chronic worry, negative thinking, disturbing emotions, painful memories, and behaviors and relationships that interfere with peace in the present moment and beyond. Suffering is a part of life--it is inevitable. Healing is about moving through and beyond suffering and limitation, transforming pain and suffering into personal power. Strategies and practices to heal, transform and find meaning is my practice focus.

I view the person as a whole and wellness as a personal journey. It's nearly impossible to heal the mind without also healing the body. As both a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with nearly 15 years of experience, and a Nutritionist, I can help you achieve optimum mental and physical vitality and find your pathway to becoming your best self. Together, we will look at emotions, thoughts, behaviors and unconscious beliefs that may be holding you back, but also consider complementary and alternative means to help you achieve wellness -- focusing on sleep, nutrition, exercise, meditation, social supports, and holistic treatments.

You have never really felt like you fit in anywhere. It seems as if people just do not get you and you might even be afraid to show them who you truly are. The opinions of others weigh heavily on you which has taught you how to bend and fold yourself to meet the needs of those close to you. You feel as if you have lost your voice or have even struggled to use it. But you keep going despite the growing disconnect between who you are and who you want to be. Now is the time to regroup, refocus, and live intentionally.

The things you usually try don't seem to be helping. You may have experienced a traumatic event, big changes or are dealing w/ major life challenges. You fake "being fine" around others, but worry this is the best life gets. Activities you used to enjoy feel like work & you wonder if you can get your passion back.

No one is an expert more on your life than you. However, sometimes inviting in trusted support helps you get perspective on your fears, disappointments, and feeling stuck or confused about next steps in life. No matter the season of life you are in, asking for help is both courageous and what moves you forward. Your resiliency and the combined power of your strengths are how you navigate through life’s challenges. You and your loved ones are not a diagnosis; being human is not a flaw but a strength to be honored.

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in San Diego 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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
