I am here to help you find your way through the confusion and pain. I have been honored to work with people during the most painful of circumstances.

I specialize in working with anyone who is recovering from abuse or trauma in their lives, those with anxiety, depression, addictions, relationship issues or those who simply want to live more fully with greater confidence and creativity.
When working with a client, I find it most important to create an "emotional safe space" where one feels comfortable to openly express and is able to feel truly heard and understood. My overall approach focuses on helping one strengthen one's own relationship with them self via self compassion and self kindness. It is my experience that this is the most effective way to find clarity and balance in one's relationships, work and overall ability to feel unconditionally comfortable with oneself. It means nourishing your mind, body and soul by having the kindest thoughts about yourself, caring for your body and finding your own unique spiritual connection between you and life. When we focus on our own "wholeness" we are able to find peace and able to give more to our relationships and to our dreams.

The most important part of the therapy relationship is that you understand you have the right to know what you can expect and the ways in which I believe I can help.
There is no way to have predicted or to predict the impacts of COVID19 and the impacts of the social distance and social turmoil that has suddenly disrupted our futures, our relationships, our faith in our safety and, for many, the faith in our institutions to protect us. It would be incredibly naive or harmful to pretend like the disruptions to daily life and our entire planet have not caused us to re-evaluate and consider if we would like to make changes or if our children need support with social development as playgrounds were closed for more screens and video games as their only way to interact and develop socially.

There is no question that life has been coming at us all hard lately. Forcing us to change in ways we could have never predicted. Transition is never easy, but it is even more complicated when you factor in trauma, depression, fear or any of the other possible roadblocks that are common in life. It is normal to respond to “new” with uncertainty, sadness, or even anger. These changes, and the reactions to them, can cause issues within a relationship (including parenting), sleepless nights, acting out, indecision and prolonged sadness.

Currently, I am conducting sessions by phone or video where the co-created space of the therapeutic relationship can begin to develop.
Life is truly uncertain, yet the current pandemic has highlighted and intensified this experience for many of us. COVID-19 is changing how we look at and experience life, work and relationships, thus creating new thoughts and feelings about our lives. Whether you are encountering anxiety, depression, addiction, relationship issues and/or other possibly debilitating physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual obstacles they can be worked with during this time of uncertainty. Additionally, with over 15 years of experience in various healthcare settings I work with burnout, compassion fatigue, moral distress and other stressors.

I specialize in working with clients who want to resolve emotional, relational, or other phase of life changes. The way I do this is sharing therapeutic practices that serve to overcome emotional distress which, in turn, leads to unhealthy behaviors that interfere with current life goals and values. As we work together in a safe, non judgmental therapeutic relationship, negative thoughts and behaviors can be changed and replaced allowing clients to free themselves from discouragement, harmful attachments, fearful thoughts, excessive worry or feeling like they are losing control of their emotions and their lives.

My therapeutic style is empathetic and non-judgmental which encourages the creation of a safe therapeutic relationship, and will enable us to explore your experience together.
In my practice, I use a holistic approach when working with individual adults and couples. I can help you learn new ways to navigate your relationships and emotions so that you may live a more balanced and fulfilling life. Somatic therapy is especially powerful because it encourages tuning in to body sensations in addition to cognitive processes. This practice allows for the integration of the hidden parts of ourselves in order to become more whole.

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 Ventura relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Ventura.
