"I believe that our lives are built on relationships. Be it between parent and child, partner and partner, supervisor and employee, or peer and peer, relationships can be healing and rewarding, but they can also be painful and difficult. We all know the stress and heartache that can come from a relationship in distress and we all know that desperate, painful feeling of wanting relief. Helping people find their way through these difficulties and back to each other is one of the most rewarding and exciting things I do. I specialize in helping families connect and thrive."

"Authentic communication and connection nourishes our essence. Being in tune with our deeper self helps us stay centered, feeling sure and confident of who we are. At times our head may spin from anxiety-provoking events or situations. We can learn to cope and self-regulate by getting in touch with our self in different ways. Nourishing our essence gives us a solid sense of self-worth, helping us feel safe and secure in the universe allowing us to take ownership of our journey through life, whether dealing with addiction, depression, anxiety, or relationships we can learn to live in the solution."

"Are you tired from staying hidden and playing small? Do you find yourself wanting to show up in a way that feels more authentic and congruent to you, but you don’t know how? Maybe you feel like you’re too sensitive and you’ve been spending a lot of energy trying not to be that way. Imagine what it could be like to live in sync with your story, your emotions, and your body. You would be able to take up space confidently, to honor your needs, and to live from a place of integration and connection. "

"I was a middle school teacher for ten years. I enjoyed working with children and adolescents more than I did grading papers. I became a psychologist to help children and their families live healthier, more productive lives. I approach psychotherapy first from the perspective that insight into oneself provides then the power to choose and to change. If you don't understand what is going on, you are unlikely to make changes. Secondly, the power to change is enhanced by learning and applying better coping skills. Insight and tools provide a growth experience."

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Pasadena, 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 Pasadena are able to work with a wide range of issues.

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