I specialize in supporting Non-Monogamous and LGBTQ people to heal trauma and create better relationships.
Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in San Diego, CA
Supervised by Aimee Zakrewski-Clark, LMFT Lic #43736
I work with couples and individuals, using both Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and mindfulness practices.
I am Poly-identified, with many years of experience in supporting people in poly and open relationships with navigating issues of boundaries, bonding, and coming out. I see polyamory as an orientation rather than a "choice".
For those who are open to incorporating mindfulness into their therapy, I offer both individual mindfulness training as well as couples mindfulness. I have been a mindfulness teacher and trainer for 20 years and have extensive trainings and certifications in Reiki, Shamanism, and Tantra.
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples is my passion and my focus as a therapist. Based on research done with thousands of couples, EFT focuses on looking at the underlying attachment concerns that create problems for couples. Shown to have an 75% success rate, EFT works by focusing on de-escalating the patterns of disagreements and misunderstandings in a relationship, then empowering couples to create lasting change and strengthen their bonds with each other.
