I enjoy assisting clients with discovering their truths through a warm, trusting, and safe environment.
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Encino, CA
I assist clients in exploring and discovering underlying thought patterns that often derive from their family-of-origins. This promotes a greater understanding of self and contributes to long-lasting positive changes in one's life.
My approach to couples' therapy is to create a safe environment for both parties to share, explore, and discover elements about themselves, as well as each other. I begin by first exploring the attraction that brought the two people together, the commonality that bonds them, and their thoughts and feelings of what has changed. Then we take a look at what each of them would like for their relationship to look like at the end of therapy.
I assist clients with understanding how one's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are connected. Once the client is able to eliminate unhealthy thought patterns and develop more accurate and positive thought patterns, change occurs that supports a healthier and more enriching life for the client.
