As relationship therapists, we are committed to the healing of distressed and broken relationships. We help people to reconnect with themselves and with others in their life, creating more personal happiness and joy, decreasing anxiety, depression, conflict, and distress. It is our goal to help others improve their communication, resolve relationship conflict, and deepen personal intimacy. We see individuals, couples, and families. We are upbeat yet compassionate, patient yet encouraging, book smart and trained, as well as intuitive and experienced. We have certification and training in Emotionally Focused Therapy, EMDR, and Life Span Integration.
As a certified Emotionally Focused Therapist serving the Bay Area, Evelyn's passion is working with couples and families helping them create connection. Mihaela Benson's passion is working with distressed teens and children and their families. She provides a safe space for them to explore their issues and find peace.
We enjoy working with all types of people from a variety of backgrounds. Evelyn is a child of immigrants, her mother was from Brazil and her father from Germany, and Mihaela is from Romania. As a result, we are aware of and sensitive to all types of cross cultural issues affecting people with immigrant status.
