News Flash! I've completed the training for Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples and I am very excited about the difference it's making in helping couples become more securely attached (and, by the way, loving) with each other.
Now I want to welcome you to my website and tell you a little about myself. I've been counseling here in Orange County for the past 20 years and helping people like you maximize their relationships. Relationships bring out our needs, anxieties and conflicts with people in our current life and often are affected by relationships in our past (such as parents, friends and former partners). When we enter into a relationship (marriage or otherwise), we expect to be loved and accepted for who we are and to feel safe. Much of my work involves helping people sort out their disappointments in the reality of their relationship, clarify how they and their partners are influenced by their personal legacies and then, help to change their dysfunctional dance into a healthy one. Sounds like a lot, but with willing clients I can help you accomplish all of this.
My work with couples often focuses on helping partners identify their attachment style and understand how their different styles affect their interactions with one another. Couples often get stuck in disconnection. My goal is to help you and your partner actively sculpt your path back to intimacy so that you will both feel nurtured, loved, safe and connected. The EFT model is perfect for this process and I'm thrilled to have been able to learn it.
I utilize a blended therapy approach, which draws on a variety of styles and techniques to incorporate what will be most helpful for each individual client or couple, working to help them build upon their strengths and identify and achieve their desired goals.
