We all need strong, healthy relationships for our personal, social growth and development and survival in life. At times the pathway to building strong, healthy relationships can be perplexing and bewildering. My therapy approach provides a supportive, safe harbor that is both collaborative and non-judgmental to help families, couples, and individuals to find what they need to build healthy and satisfying lives and deeply meaningful relationships.

Our relationships are the greatest treasures we have in life. When we feel disconnected in our relationship with ourselves and others, we are more prone to experiencing isolation, dysfunction and pain. While our pain can be a great teacher, feeling stuck and alone on the journey of life can feel hopeless at times. My goal is to walk with you through the healing process and support you in restoring life in your relationship with yourself and others. With a holistic approach to therapy, addressing the needs of the body, mind and soul are vital for restoring connection as we walk together through the healing process.

Kindness is your curse. Think of others before yourself, they said. Stop being selfish. The more you weigh opinions, the more you feel disconnected from yourself. You've noticed the joy you once felt from giving is feeling empty and obligatory. You are drained with said and unsaid demands others place on you without a word. Instinctively, you feel therapy with someone unbiased could help and even have offered this advice to others, but you get caught up in thinking you're too privileged to want more in your life. After all, you know people have it worse than you. Heck, your parents had it way worse than you.

People-Pleasing gone wild? Feeling responsible for EVERYTHING? Empaths and highly responsible people usually feel their best qualities are given to others at their own expense. Emotional Abuse appears in many forms, particularly compassion anxiety, compassion fatigue, grief, low self-worth, and trouble with life skills. I've identified 10 symptoms of most anxiety AND a plan for gifting yourself with the best tools to deposit mind-clutter to the curb.

This challenging time may be creating disruption in your life as well as awakening awareness of problematic patterns and pain from the past. So often our frustrations and emotional pain are rooted in parts of ourselves of which we are largely unaware. You may feel stuck in patterns of bad relationships, loss of identity, or lacking meaning in life, even when you know you want to break free. You may be defined by your job or family role, but what else are you? What is missing in your life from not knowing all that you really are?

I want to come alongside you, helping you find insight into those patterns and discover the healing truths about yourself. This moment of insight opens up the possibility of change, allowing you to live your best self in all relationships. Psychotherapy is important to me because it works!

I am most helpful to mid-life women (and their partners when that's appropriate). I help them pick a good partner, create sound relationships, take good care of themselves and ultimately get more of what feeds their soul. I believe it begins with a solid understanding of oneself, how you experience your life, and then re-forming your relationships to be more satisfying.

Narrative Therapists
Narrative Therapy uses the client's storytelling to indicate the way they construct meaning in their lives, rather than focusing on how they communicate their problem behaviors. Monrovia Narrative Therapy embraces the idea that stories actually shape our behaviors and our lives and that we become the stories we tell about ourselves. There are helpful narratives we can choose to embrace as well as unhelpful ones. Although it may sound obvious, the power of storytelling is to elevate the client--who is the authority of their narrative--rather than the therapist, as expert. Check these therapists for find Narrative Therapy in Monrovia.
