You’re struggling with difficult feelings in your relationship with a spouse, partner, your child, family members, friends or people at work. Or you may be trying to come to terms with painful feelings about things that happened in the past. When you’re hurting or feeling confused, you don’t know what to do. People in your life may not understand you or your experiences. You may want to develop greater self-awareness and hope to find a greater sense of choice and freedom in your life. It takes courage to sit with the layers of your experience. And it also takes time. Therapy allows for time to look inside and be present.

My professional training and experience includes working with adults (18+), children (ages 3-10), adolescents (ages 11-17), and parents and others raising children (foster parents, legal guardians) to reduce family conflict.
Almost everyone can benefit from therapy at some point in their life to gain a deeper understanding of themselves and to manage life challenges. You may struggle with issues that are getting in the way of relationships, home life, dreams, or career goals. Perhaps you just have a general sense that your life could be fuller or richer than it is right now. Your child may be using challenging behaviors to communicate, and my goal is to help you identify the feeling or need underneath the behavior. No matter where you are on your journey, I am here to help.

My approach is by use of empathy, strengths assessment, and supportive coaching, influenced by Cognitive Behavioral, Solution Focused, and Family Systems Theories.
My focus in therapy revolves around relationships and support. The most important relationship I speak of is our relationship with ourselves. To be truly whole we benefit from a well developed relationship with ourselves to then be able to have good relationships with others. This comes from learning and honoring our strengths and our limitations. In fact, one's limitations can grow into strengths when addressed from a position of self-care

My clients are autistic individuals or their families and supports whose experience of autism is overwhelming. They are in need of hope, encouragement and direction in order to feel whole and valued. Their overwhelm has led to frustration and uncertainty over possibilities, and what to do next. They arrive, feeling unsafe in their environments, unable to communicate so they are understood, and unappreciated for who they truly are. By establishing a safe relationship and working environment we create the tools necessary to be heard, seen and appreciated. These are the missing cornerstones of their growth and expansion.

I created The Relationship Model of Addiction, in which addiction is viewed as a relationship (not a disease), with a means of relief of pain from unmet emotional needs. Recovery as a three-stage transitional journey out of unhealthy relationships and into healthy ones.

Family Therapy
If you're looking for family therapy in 94563 or for an 94563 family therapist these professionals provide family therapy services and structural family therapy services. They include family therapists and marriage family therapists. Therapists in 94563 using the techniques of 'family therapy' (also referred to as marriage and family therapy and family counseling) view change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.
