Are you an empath, healer, or Highly Sensitive Person (HSP)? Are you a female-identifying person in their 30’s – 50’s? Do you work in the helping and creative professions and are looking to add more alignment and fulfillment to your life and/or career? Are you ready to step up to the next level in your career, life, or relationship? But, the fear of being seen has been holding you back. The fear of criticism and what others think about you? Do people ever tell you you’re too sensitive? On some level you know it’s true, but you don’t know what to do about it. Do you struggle with feelings of being ‘good enough’ or ‘doing enough’?

I enjoy working collaboratively with adults and teens to create a comforting and safe space where insight into inner processes can begin to unfold. When we understand and have compassion for our particular reactions to things, we begin to live in a state of greater peace and become able to connect to our deepest and most unique resources. Learning to calm and soothe our body’s response to stress can be life changing and enables us to harness our greatest potential.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in 90403, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 90403 are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in 90403. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 90403

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 90403 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 90403 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 90403 or family therapy in 90403.
