I'm here to help you build a relationship with yourself.
Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in Montecito, CA
Supervised by Kathryn Diaz, LMFT 78878
The therapeutic relationship is continually shown to be an important factor in the efficacy of therapy. With this in mind, I will consistently approach you with respect, openness, & curiosity. My goal is create a space in which you feel safe sharing vulnerable information about yourself.
In the interest of helping you get to know & accept yourself, I will guide you as we uncover the various layers of your thoughts, feelings, beliefs, & desires. Depth therapy is all about getting to know those hidden, unconscious aspects of yourself so that you can work towards wholeness & lessen the power of your inner critic. Let therapy be the place you can share the parts of yourself that you usually keep hidden.
I have training & experience working with survivors of intimate partner violence & sexual assault & am passionate about helping people heal from these experiences. Whether you are seeking therapy specifically for this reason or it comes up as we're addressing other issues, please know that your feelings (pain, anger, sadness, shame, etc.) can be processed; you will not feel like this forever.
I am in training for EMDR & am qualified to incorporate EMDR in my work with children, adolescents, & adults. If you are interested in incorporating EMDR in your therapy, please let me know & I would be happy to provide more information about the process. It can be a great addition to talk therapy!
