You're hurt and angry again. You're thinking, No matter how hard we try we have the same arguments over and over again. I am so tired of fighting. What happened to the way we used to be? I want to be happy again. You can learn to reconnect emotionally and create a more caring and fulfilling relationship. For more than 20 years I've worked with couples and families helping them find a better way to live and love.
You can learn to rebuild trust, increase closeness and intimacy and communicate better. I can help you manage your anxiety, find more motivation and reduce negativity and depression. My therapeutic style is practical, client centered, and attachment based focusing on improving intimate relationships and I offer a safe, confidential and supportive therapeutic environment.
I also partner with the best local and LA based psychiatric providers when a referral is needed. Areas of expertise include crisis management, emotionally focused couples therapy, Gottman Communication Skills, CBT therapy to reduce anger and address addictive behaviors, Love & Logic Parenting, and ADHD testing for children. I have experience working with loss/trauma.
