My ideal client is a person who doesn't want to give up on him/her/themself and the dream of a fulfilling life. I support clients to know the truth: they deserve love and success no matter what wounds they've experienced. I help people uncover the deep wisdom and restorative potential living within them. I do this gently and safely, in the present moment, by reconnecting clients with healing, embodied emotional experience. This gets vitality and intuition moving again I support people to take responsibility (but not blame) in any life/work/relationship upset because this is what works!

Aloha! Life is full of change and transition, and that means life is also full of times when we need extra support to manage the anxiety, depression, and/or distress that often comes along with it. If this sounds like you, you're in the right place. I like to think of myself as a treatment partner, not someone who sits silently while you figure out your own path forward. That means I take a holistic, collaborative approach to treatment, with a nod to evidence-based practices, such as CBT, ACT, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused, as well as using EMDR and trauma-focused CPT for PTSD and other trauma-related symptoms.

All of us experience times in our lives when a little help is needed. Perhaps now, it is a period of time in your life that is emotionally difficult, a death or loss you are grieving, struggles with depression or anxiety, problematic relationships, or just want to work on personal growth. Perhaps you need a sympathetic, nonjudgmental ear with someone whom you can trust. I hope you can find that person in me.

Asking for help is both difficult and incredibly brave. On the one hand, we know we're in pain and want it to stop. On the other, we may have certain beliefs about what therapy is or who actually goes. Maybe you tell yourself that you "should" be able to handle your pain alone, that you're "weak" if you can't, or that only people with "real issues" need therapy. And yet, so often when people actually go to therapy, they feel calmer, clearer, more connected, and more fulfilled.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in San Diego, 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 San Diego are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in San Diego

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