Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in , CA
Many individuals are impacted by childhood trauma. Even if one doesn't remember their trauma or understand it, trauma can adversely affect their mental, physical, and emotional health.Processing trauma & integrating it, is essential to managing stress & anxiety. Trauma can impact one's ability to maintain intimate relationships, relationships with friends, work, money, food, how individuals feel about themselves, and how they view the world. I help clients feel safe and secure again.
You have the capacity for self-healing & personal growth leading towards self-actualization. The quality of the relationship between client & therapist is of utmost importance. The emphasis of therapy is on the “here and now’ rather than other forms of psychotherapy that delve into childhood problems & focus on resolving family of origin issues. Person-Centered therapy is client determined, rather than therapist driven. Your needs, wants, goals and preferences will direct your therapy.
Early attachment experiences with our parents shape the adults that we become. The goals of attachment-based therapy are to address the limiting effects of negative early attachment experiences & strengthen the capacity for secure relationships & adaptive actions in the world. By creating a secure trusting relationship with my clients, they are then able to express the types of communications, emotions, perceptions, & behaviors missing in their childhood.
