Hello, I work with women and teens experincing overwheliming pressure to meet the expectations of the world, despite it being unrealistic.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Irvine, CA
I work with couples, including same-sex partners, in all stages of relationships including pre-marital counseling and those on the brink of divorce. By using Gottman Method of Couples Therapy I can help you and your partner improve the quailty of friendship and the level of intimacy between you two.
We all go through BIG life changes! Even if we have "planned" for a big change, it can take us by surprise. When these times hit, it's helpful to have a safe space to explore (out loud) all the questions, frustrations, and worries.
At times, we need to take a closer look in order to break old habits and patterns and develop new, healthier ways of dealing with life and relationships. Things like trauma, depression, anxiety and inability to cope effectively with daily life can keep us trapped in a state of low motivation and despair.
I have taken additional training in CBT following graduate school.
