Couples Counseling in San Diego (Mission Valley)
We all have needs for connection, safety, and comfort in our primary relationship. We want to believe and feel, to our core, that our other half will “show-up” for us and have our back during our time of need. When we feel supported, loved, and secure with our partner, our relationship resembles a secure attachment- a healthy bond.
When we don’t feel connected or supported by our loved one, conflict can increase, communication can diminish, and both physical and emotional intimacy can be hard to maintain. As a result, the couples bond will weaken.
So why is this important?
When we have a secure attachment or when our partner becomes our safe-base, we are more equipped to deal with adversity- we are happier and healthier (both physically and mentally). Unfortunately, the flip-side of that scenario is not so pleasant. When we are struggling to find connection in our relationship or when our needs go unmet, depression, anxiety, and other issues can occur.
How can couples counseling help?
Couples therapy in San Diego can help you to break-down unhealthy relational patterns and overcome emotional barriers so that you and your partner can be close once again. Using Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), I can help you to communicate in a healthy way, repair relational injuries, and work through betrayals and tough transitions. We will work towards creating a secure and stronger bond in your most sacred relationship. Our goal will be to move you from a place of pain and conflict to a place of safety and relational bliss.
Individual and Relationship Counseling for Women
Have you ever read Dr. Seuss’ book, The Lorax? It’s an interesting tale about a fuzzy little creature (the Lorax) who dedicates his life to protecting the land from people who inadvertently destroy it. The humans in the book overuse the land’s natural resources, ultimately causing the animals to suffer, the air quality to diminish, and the forests to perish. Throughout the book, the Lorax advocates for the creatures of the land. He speaks for the fish, the birds, the trees, and the animals because they don’t have a voice themselves.
So... how does this environmental kid’s story relate to female therapy, you ask? Well, like the Lorax, I am here to speak for you- to protect you- to empower you- and to help you find your inner voice. We will work through and address many of the issues you have been struggling to heal from. Like the Lorax, I am here, fighting by your side. I care about your life and your well-being! I am here to help you smile and find your inner strength so that you are able to ROAR!
Individual Therapy in San Diego
Whether you’ve experienced a significant loss, have undergone a major trauma, or are struggling to find relief from your pain, individual therapy can help you to restore both happiness and balance in your life. Through counseling, you can overcome obstacles and learn to cope with life’s major stressors in positive, healthy, and adaptive ways. Together, we will break-down your negative cycles so that you are able to be the best version of you.
Throughout my career as a therapist, I have had the privilege of working with a variety of men and women. Each of these individuals have had a beautiful, yet complicated story to tell. Through my work, I have realized that issues range and people are unique. With this said, all humans tend to have one thing in common. We are all truly resilient creatures. We are strong and brave- we endure an awful lot and yet, we own our stories.
While the therapeutic process for each person is different, most individuals are seeking support because they are feeling stuck in one way or another. I can help get you “unstuck.”
If you would like to embark on a therapeutic journey, know this: therapy may challenge you at times, but it can also be an uplifting process- one that will expand you and shine light into the dark corners of your world.
Premarital Counseling in San Diego
Engaged? Consider attending premarital counseling so that you and your partner can properly prepare for your greatest adventure- your life together.
Premarital counseling in San Diego will help you to lay a strong foundation for your union. Together, we will discuss your relationship strengths and growth areas so that you and your partner can communicate more effectively, experience a deeper and more solid bond, and maintain closeness for decades to come.
Premarital counseling helps set the stage for a more fulfilling, stable, and close marriage. Studies suggest that couples who attend premarital counseling have better communication, lower divorce rates, and higher satisfaction levels than couples who don’t engage in premarital therapy. Premarital work can also be a productive, fun, and gratifying process- it can set you up for marital success.
