Life is all about relationships! From the moment we are born to the last breath, we are embedded in relationships...it is the very essence of life. Yet, sometimes they are the most difficult to navigate through with confusing twists and turns that leave us feeling cut off and alone from the very ones we need and love. Often, we can see what it is we want, but have no idea of how to get there because we are stuck or blocked from moving forward. I can help you to remove these obstacles by utilizing EMDR (www.EMDRIA.org).

I offer client-centered therapy in Eagle Rock and in Old Town Pasadena. Guiding principles are: that one always remains the expert on one's own life, that people have the internal resources to overcome their "stuck-ness," and that a collaborative therapeutic relationship is the key to encouraging positive change and more meaningful living. While I deal with a wide range of client issues, most of my clients are high-functioning or gifted intellectually and/or artistically. I use Rogerian, Experiential Focusing, Gestault, Attachment Theory, and Existential concepts and methods, working with clients to help them maximize their personal freedom and growth.

Maybe you are coping with a stressful pregnancy? Or grappling with the loss of one? Are you postpartum, feeling unsure, worried, irritable, sad, unable to sleep even when the baby sleeps? Or perhaps, you are further along the parenting continuum, supporting your child through the various developmental stages - toddlerhood, adolescence and beyond. Is that meltdown normal? How do I help my daughter with difficult friendships? Is my teen's behavior typical? How do I tackle their constant internet use? Or maybe you simply want to empower yourself or your child with healthy emotional tools now to prevent potential issues later.

Most of the time, when we feel stuck or lost or frustrated or just "not quite right," there's a blind spot we're not seeing, or an opportunity to develop some skills that would help us thrive more in our own lives. We can often eventually figure out things on our own, but it's often faster, easier, and more effective with help from a skilled professional. My coaching is practical and deep.

Maybe your partner has lied to you are had an affair and you don't know what to do now. Maybe you want to resolve your feelings and feel close again, but anger and hurt get in your way. Perhaps, you have been hurt in the past and your history gets in the way of allowing love into your heart today. Maybe you know you deserve better, but can't break the cycle?

"How we do anything is how we do everything." We move through life in a distinct way that was shaped before we can remember, reinforces itself everyday, and inevitably leads to the same problems despite our best efforts to change. Do anxiety and depression color your everyday experience? Has addiction taken hold of your life? Do you struggle to build satisfying relationships? Through courageous self-exploration, I can help you find compassion for yourself and come to understand why you encounter the same issues again and again. Building this understanding and taking responsibility for your life can empower you to heal and grow.

If your child refuses to follow directions, screams, kicks, hits, or throws things, I can help with Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT). Not only have studies shown PCIT to be more effective than stimulant medication, but I can tell you how PCIT has worked wonders for my own family. Let's work together to transform your child's behaviors & bring peace and joy back to your everyday interactions with your child again. LGBQIA+ & Trans families are celebrated!
