My speciality is working with people of all ages that are highly sensitive, empathic, and intuitive. They usually know who they are, but keep it quiet in order not to stand out, but to fit in with social situations. Highly sensitive people are like sponges. They absorb other people's energies and are not sure what to do with it. They may have a sixth sense that has been undervalued or they don't know how to use it both in their professional and personal lives. What they do know is how it has been effecting their life and how tiring it is.

Do you have an irrational, gut feeling you can't seem to shake? Maybe something telling you that you're not good enough, unsafe, powerless...? Sometimes, difficult experiences in our past can cloud how we live in and see the present. We find ourselves overreacting to things or people, feeling anxious or worthless. Our head can tell us we are being irrational, but that doesn't change the feeling. One of my goals is in helping you re-process the experiences in your life that push these feelings, so you not only know that you're okay - you feel it.

You are a loving parent of a gifted or adopted child or have a more traditional family and you are tearing your hair out. The unique challenges of intense emotions and sensitive personalities stretch your parenting to the limits. You try to do everything right, but you feel you are getting a failing grade. Some days, you just want to pull the covers back over your head and hid from all the moodiness, fighting, complaints, and accusations. You want to run from teachers and you are tired of homework that either overwhelms or does not challenge your child. You argue nonstop with your partner and kids and you don't know where to turn.

CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. Personal change and growth come from an encouraging, supportive, safe, compassionate, and empathetic environment where an individual can discover oneself and grow. Are you finding yourself unsure of where to turn in life? That coping mechanisms which once worked for you no longer are? Do you struggle to find a connection to yourself or others? Do you find yourself still struggling with things that happened long ago and you don't understand why? Having the courage to work on one’s relationship to self and others can be powerful, deeply healing and perhaps one of the most loving actions one can do.

In the midst of these uncertain and trying times around the COVID-19 pandemic it is easy to find ourselves wrapped up in fear and anxiety. Although these emotions are normal, they definitely are not comfortable, and left unchecked can result in a downward spiral of isolation, disconnection, and depression. First and foremost, I want you to know that you are not alone in this, and encourage you to stay connected to loved ones as best as possible. We are innately built to be resilient, and meaningful interpersonal connections are the avenues for such strength. However, sometimes we can have that and still be overwhelmed with fear.

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. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Pasadena

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.
