COUPLES COUNSELING Are you feeling distant, uncared for, or not loved by your partner? Do you want to improve your relationship? I help couples create happier and more loving relationships. I can help you alleviate conflicts as well as find solutions to improve communication and intimacy. I emphasize creating a safe environment to share your thoughts and feelings and encourage feedback to meet your individual needs. I can help with issues including infidelity and substance abuse. I work evenings, Saturdays, and afternoons; and offer services in English and Spanish. I'm located near 19th Ave/Highway One at Irving Street.
INDIVIDUAL THERAPY Working individually I can help you with relationship issues, anxiety, depression, grief, and trauma. I can help you improve a current relationship or help you heal the pain of losing a partner. I also offer EMDR, a method to help you process trauma from past relationships and childhood.
I have 20 years experience counseling people from diverse cultural backgrounds. I am experienced working with people who have very differing views on relationships and communication. Feel encouraged to call or e-mail me to set up a session or to ask any questions about the services that I offer.
