Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Carlsbad, CA
Nearly seven years of clinical experience using the Internal Family Systems approach.
Nearly seven years of clinical experience and advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy.
Codependency is a learned pattern of behavior that starts in childhood but often becomes no longer helpful or even harmful in adulthood. Common codependent behaviors include denying one's thoughts or feelings; giving too much of one's time, energy, or money; being too identified as a caretaker or giver in relationships, and a culminating exhaustion and fatigue. I can work with you to address each of these life-restricting symptoms and learn how to get your life back.
I have experience working with male survivors of childhood sexual abuse and the confusing consequences of this unique type of abuse. Often, male survivors of sexual abuse struggle with intimacy, relationships, perfectionism, codependency, identity, dissociation, self sabotage, and overall boundary complications across different relationships. I can support you in the process of developing a treatment plan and following through to address your individual concerns step by step.
The disconnect in your relationship might feel insurmountable right now, but you can regain the love and closeness you and your partner have had in the past. You can finally feel seen, heard, and understood again. You can improve your intimacy. And I can help you get there. Using an Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy approach integrated with the Gottman Method, I help couples improve communication, move on from infidelity, and establish greater trust and intimacy.
