Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am a seasoned Marriage and Family Therapist with extensive training and experience in working with trauma related issues including childhood physical and sexual abuse, domestic violence, verbal abuse, attachment disorders, etc. These types of issues can compromise the regulation of emotional arousal, causing persons to either over-react or shut down emotionally, presenting challenges to the development of healthy and nurturing relationships and especially impact parenting skills. I work with individuals and couples to develop skills that can help them be more present emotionally and thus more effective in relationships with partners, children and others.

I am trained in the cutting edge treatment modalities of EMDR and Level I Sensorimotor Psychotherapy for the treatment of trauma. I am warm, compassionate and interactive.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Carlsbad, CA

I provide a therapeutic environment that allows individuals and couples to explore ideas, beliefs, life experiences, thoughts and feelings that may stand in the way of being who you truly want to be. I can help point out repeating dysfunctional patterns that may exsist in relationships at home, at work and with friends and family.I teach people how to respond in their lives versus getting caught in reacting to personalities and events.
