I have specialized in working with families of aging or chronically ill patients, specifically patients with dementia and brain injury. I work with the caregiver to help them negotiate through the stress of caring for a loved one with a chronic illness such as Alzheimer's disease. In addition to my practice focus, I enjoy working with adults seeking to improve their quality of life and are willing to do the work it takes to accomplish that.

On the road of life, we may find that our hopes, dreams and aspirations for living have been derailed, slowed, or halted by the effects of challenging circumstances such as traumatic events, troubled or broken relationships, illness, the loss of a loved one, or many others. These challenges are the bumps on our road, but the depression, sadness, fear, self-doubt, and/or shame that they often invite can feel like roadblocks. In times like these, we need a supportive ally to help co-create a new map for living that opens space for new possibilities and brings forth our values, strengths, wisdom and knowings.

Trying to juggle work from home with kids and your other responsibilities is overwhelming you. You spend your days attending zoom meetings, while trying to keep your kids focused on their schoolwork, possibly managing to eat something, and barely remembering to change out of your pajamas. You have tried a few things like meditating and manage to squeeze in exercise here and there, but nothing works for long. You need to get your stress under control fast.

Viewing those issues from an objective and trusted practitioner is vital to the change process. Always viewing my clients with unconditional positive regard is essential to us being successful. Therapy can often be the first time someone gets to step out of the day to day of their lives.

Solution Focused Brief (SFBT) Therapists
Solution-focused therapy in Encinitas, sometimes called "brief therapy," focuses on what clients would like to achieve through therapy rather than on their troubles or mental health issues. The therapist will help the client envision a desirable future, and then map out the small and large changes necessary for the client to undergo to realize their vision. The therapist will seize on any successes the client experiences, to encourage them to build on their strengths rather than dwell on their problems or limitations.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Encinitas are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Encinitas. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Encinitas
