Hi there, thanks for checking out my therapy profile. I am eager to support you in your personal growth!
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Alameda, CA
I work well with outside-the-box thinkers, women who have chosen a non-traditional path in life, and those who are still forming their vision for their future. Highly sensitive and queer identitifed people are welcome!
Relationships are hard! Many of us did not grow up in healthy or supportive households and are still grappling with insecure/anxious attachement which continues to impact our ability to connect romantically. Intimacy can feel overwhelming or downright impossible. Love addiction and love avoidance are challenges I can help you overcome.
Irrational fears can threaten to take control of your mind and body. I can help you manage your symptoms, as well as dive deep to uncover the underlying causes of your anxiety. Using EMDR we can work to resolve the negative thoughts and beliefs you have developed, and reprogram your brain! Sound too good to be true? It may sound weird, but it works!
Providing you with a corrective emotional experience is my primary goal in therapy. Regardless of the trauma, abuse or neglect you have experienced in your childhood or past, I believe you can heal and learn to give and receive more love and positive regard for yourself and others.
EYE MOVEMENT DESENSITIZATION & REPROCESSING: This is a unique and highly effective form of therapy that directly addresses negative thoughts and beliefs you have been carrying with you, sometimes unconsciously. Using a specific evidence based procedure to identify where these beliefes originate, we address the underlying psychologically traumatic event in an effective and thorough way to resolve the trauma and reprocess your thoughts to produce healthier and more positive beliefs.
