I aim to create a therapeutic relationship that will help to provide support and guidance through these periods of transition.
The only thing constant is change – Heraclitus of Ephesos (c.500 BCE) Change can be hard. It can also be a period of excitement and rebirth. I am a licensed clinical psychologist who has dedicated my professional career to help individuals of all ages, to improve their lives in the face of challenges. Challenges, adverse live events, can be the result of stress and emotional problems due to mental health issues, physical illness, trauma, family circumstances, transitions in employment, and education and social stressors.

I like helping people find contentment and happiness in their lives. I believe it is important to understand one's self and one's personal values and to make choices that are positive and life-affirming. I have had extensive experience working with people having experienced trauma and loss, relationship problems, and who have substance abuse problems. Creative people are also one of my specializations. My training is primarily psycho-dynamic along with cognitive-behavioral orientation. I believe mindfulness, spirituality and forgiveness are ways of helping alter patterns of behavior that can keep us stuck in our lives.

Marital Therapy: Contemporary Relational Theories, Imago Relationship Therapy, Various Communication Models.
The most fascinating and important part of my job as a therapist is how to have a really good conversation. It may sound too simple, but it cuts to the heart of what to expect from therapy. Through good conversation, you experience connection and understanding. When we are understood, difficult feelings change with resulting freedoms to engage life. Trained both as a Marriage and Family therapist and a psychoanalyst, I work with complex relationship issues, divorce and blended families, depression, anxiety, addictions, men's issues, and sexual trauma recovery, and integration of psychology and faith/spirituality.

Humorist, Mark Twain once wrote, "I've had a lot of worries in my life, most of which never happened." Left unchecked, fear-based thinking shapes reality and impedes potential and growth. The unknown and mixed messages surrounding the pandemic has reinforced this mindset and may have left you with perpetual feelings of sadness, uncertainty and doubt. The first step of our journey together is establishing a relationship built upon trust, respect, and safety. Through shared conversation, mindfulness, and self-regulating techniques, we create a bond that honors your unique story and circumstance.

I want you to know that I see you. I see you hurting. I see you doing your best to get through your day, feeling like you’re failing. I see you struggling and fighting anyway. You smile, you keep pushing. You stuff down all the fear, the anger, the stress, the pain, and you put on a brave face. But it takes a toll. That's where I can help. It doesn’t have to feel this bad and you don't have to do it alone.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for a Sierra Madre relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Sierra Madre.
